12″ Rulers

Much good music was played last night at 12" Bar in the East Village, where iJamming! Pub regulars Paddy Casino and Madina hosted the first of what will hopefully be a regular Rebellious Jukebox party. I heard the likes of Lionrock, Death In Vegas, The Clash, some proper dub reggae, Gomez, various Kasabian mash-ups (it all sound very British so far, does it not?) and an inordinate amount more good music. I just can’t remember it all right now. If Paddy or Madina wants to post a set-list in The Pub, I’m sure other New York-based readers will be sure to come to the next one.

While hanging at 12", I also enjoyed the company of two Millwall fans. Yes, I know, and pigs were flying down the East River on my cab ride home. But obviously, they can’t help where they were born anymore than the rest of us – and at least they don’t have their team’s logo tattooed on their shoulders like some of us… Ben and Charlie, if you’re reading this, it was a pleasure.

    Whoops! Just realized there is now a comments area here, so I’ll put my reply here instead of where I had it in The Pub:

    I want to thank Tony and the folks who made it out to the first Rebellious Jukebox last night. It was lots of fun. I am glad that suspecting and unsuspecting people liked what they heard. Although it is still not a “regular” night, I have been booked to give it a go again next Wednesday the 6th at the brand spanking new live space and bar, SCENIC on Avenue B, starting at 10. There should be a bit of space this time around for dancing. I’ll probably throw a little bit of shoegazing stuff in to compliment the show going on in the live space. Please come and check it out if you can. Here’s some of the stuff that I can remember playing. Perhaps Madina will add her stuff.

    Thanks Patrick

    You’re welcome to respond here OR in The PUb: I imagine this stuff will figure itself out organically. Great choice of music. For an American, you, um, don’t play too much American music, do you?
