Revolution Basement Bar Saturday 21st April
Space and Amnesia nightclub, Ibiza residents Layo & Bushwacka will be making their return to Revolution Basement Bar this Saturday 21st April courtesy of POSH:FUNK.
Layo & Bushwacka! are one of electronic music’s most esteemed duos. Comprising of Matthew 'Bushwacka’ B - a percussionist in the London School Symphony Orchestra who was converted into a member of the infamous Rat Pack after a warehouse party in ’88. And Layo Paskin - a North Londoner immersed in the acid house scene who met Mr C at one of the legendary Clink Street parties in 1988, before together setting up their world renowned night club, The End, based in London. It was via their mutual friend Mr C that Layo & Bushwacka! first met, whilst Matthew was working at Mr C’s studio, and by the mid 90s the two had started writing music together. Over a decade later, the partnership has yielded three artist albums, three mix albums, internationally renowned club residencies and a superb record label.
Their End residency, known as All Night Long, became one of London’s most revered nights with Layo & Bushwacka! taking the club through an edifying tour-de-force of electronic music. The night gave birth to their second mix album 'All Night Long’, which followed the success level of their first 'The End’, mixed in conjunction with Mr C and released on XL Recordings in the late 90s. 'All Night Long’ became a perfect reflection of a Layo & Bushwacka! DJ set; inspirational, educational and all encompassing, it slaloms through all manner of house music and includes their own reworks of such timeless classics as Bebel Gilberto’s 'So Nice’ and Sly & The Family Stone’s 'Dance To The Music’, all without missing a beat.
These lads are highly respected throughout the world and we are delighted to be able to get the chance to bring them back to Revolution Basement Bar for the people of Waterford. Support on the night comes from Skelly and Paul Collins and doors will be at the earlier time of 10pm. This was an absolute sell out the last time they played, with the basement being a very intimate venue it would be expected to sell out again. So come early! Admission on the night is €15, this is sure to be one of the gigs of the year, make sure to be apart of it.
Revolution Basement Bar Sat 21st April, 10pm, Adm €15.

Google AlertWhen a company which has it's European Headquarters here in Ireland is called 'evil' and 'immoral' by M.P.s in The House of Commons you tend to sit up and take notice. The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax. It does this by having all of its financial transactions finished here in Ireland. And the company here is …
