The Mister takes over the high-ceilinged ballroom of The Bell House. We’re bringing in our own soundsystem, hanging the lights, and Eamon and Justin are playing records from 10pm until the end. The party tends to sell out in advance these days, so it’s wise to buy a ticket in advance.
We’ll see you on the dancefloor.
NOTE: We’re just a couple days away from this weekend’s party at The Bell House, and we’re getting stoked. Advance tickets sold out for this one late last week, so if you don’t have a ticket already, here’s what we’re going to do:
When the doors open at 10pm, we’ll have a handful of tickets for sale. We imagine those will go pretty quickly, so it’s a good idea to show up early. Otherwise, we’ll have a look at the dancefloor at 1am, and if it feels comfortable, we’ll start letting more people in around then. The Bell House is large, and we’re optimistic that we’ll have some room later on.
It’s probably also a good time to remind you that we’re doing Mister Sunday at Silent Barn on the 16th of March. If you want to come, it’s a good idea to get tickets for that party now.
General Ludd is Rich McMaster from New Jersey and Tom Marshallsay from Canterbury. The guys met at the Glasgow Art School, where Rich studied environmental art and Tom studied fine art. Their first collaborations were interactive sound installations, but that quickly gave way to all night music making sessions, some of which resulted in this fine twelve-inch. Both tracks have already become staples at Mister Saturday Night parties. Eamon tends to play the heady, “Brothers and Sisters,” and Justin tends to play the absolutely crushing, “Woo Ha,” but we’re sure you’ll like them both.
We’re on the road again this week for four dates in Europe including two Mister Saturday Night parties in Glasgow and Belfast. Tickets for the Glasgow party, this weekend, can be had here whilst full details of the Belfast party, the weekend after, are here.
We’ll also be playing in London this Friday, the 7th, with Optimo and Bradley Zero at Bussey Building in Peckham for Deadly Rhythm for what looks to be a great party. Details and tickets here. And then on the 14th we’ll be popping over to Hamburg to play all night at the Golden Pudel, one of our favorite spots to play.
We hope you’re having a great new year. 2014 has been a busy one for us thus far. We’ve been gearing up for a string of new releases on the label and searching for some new spaces as 12-turn-13 works out some kinks.
For our next party, we’re taking over Glasslands. We’re redecorating the space and bringing in our own soundsystem, so even if you’ve been there before, expect it to feel totally different (and just as good as any loft party we’ve ever thrown).
Looking forward to trying something new with you…
UPDATE: Advanced tickets have now sold out. We’ll have a very limited number at the door at 11:30pm, so we’d suggest you get down early. We may admit more people through the course of the night, space permitting, but we’re trying out Glasslands for the first time, and we want to keep it comfortable, so we’ll see how the night goes and how the room feels. See you on Saturday.

In many ways this track epitomizes the musical character I try to bring to our parties – at once deep, dark and soulful. This is Robert Hood at his best, sampling Aretha Franklin under a high energy techno pulse. In the hands of any other producer it would sound pastiche.
The Last Mister Sunday at Gowanus Grove I wrote about the summer Mister Sunday season this time last year, so I didn’t really want to cover old ground; but when I look back on 2013, the final party we did at Gowanus Grove sticks out significantly. In fact it was so special, I have no doubt I’ll cherish the memory to my dying days.
Justin and I always pack records that we feel are worthy of the last moment of the party, but we never plan which one we’ll play or, for that matter, who will play it. I’d packed quite a few records I thought would work before I left for an out-of-town wedding the Friday before the party. Rok One, my old DJ partner at Studio B, was DJing the wedding, and at the end of the night he played ‘All My Friends’ by LCD Soundsystem. When I came home to Brooklyn the next morning, I grabbed the record before heading to the Grove. If you were there on the day, you know what happened. . . . Read on
