Going Out - Drone with Richard Fearless at The Berkeley Suite

DJ and co-founder of Death In Vegas Richard Fearless has been busy with his great bi-monthly club night Drone at The Berkeley Suite in Glasgow, and tonight (Fri 27th Sept) see's him step behind the turntables once again.

Having emerged during the earliest throes of Britpop as something of a musical anomaly, Death In Vegas have continued to confound expectations ever since. Formed in 1994 as a vehicle for Richard Fearless and then co-conspirator Steve Hellier's genre crossing experiments, Death In Vegas have maintained a high degree of quality rather than churning out an endless stream of continually inferior but prolific records.

With Tim Holmes having replaced Hellier, 1999's second long player The Contino Sessions and its successor Scorpio Rising brought about mainstream recognition and commercial success, album number four Satan's Circus took an even more disparate route into Germanic territories and ultimately, remains their "lost classic".

His last album Trans Love Energies, the first Death In Vegas record for seven years, fused minimal techno, obtuse beats and looped electronica with shoegaze inspired noise rock.

His night Drone has been rolling along nicely at The Berkeley with more and more people seeking it out. Kicking off during the summer transient period in the city Drone has sneaked into Glasgow quietly but not for much longer, Mr Fearless has a stack of tunes lined up to come over the next month or so. These releases should/will back up the great performances already enjoyed by those at the last couple of Drone club nights. This is one night you should make a point to getting along to!
