Last Resort: Last songs

The 2 Girls 1 Cub collective are here in the shape of Chaka Khan’t (Disco Spritz), Fannar (Meat) and Ann Rollerskates (Disco Spritz), with new monthly party Last Resort. They promise to transport to where you’d rather be – namely poolside at a Vegas motel, Piña Colada in hand and disco hits spinning. They command you to whack another coat of mascara on over last night’s lashes and hit the dancefloor! We caught up with them to listen to some of their favourite songs to end the weekend to. 

FANNAR:

Carly Simon – Why.
I usually tend to end with this one due to that fact that I’m still single and crying inside.

Joy Division – Transmission
If I’m like hyper then this classic is good as I would like to throw my pint on the floor and just dance, dance, dance!

Kool A. D. – Hickory
It’s full of love.  

ANN ROLLERSKATES:

Paul McCartney & Wings – Goodnight Tonight 
With it’s opening jangly guitar and signature “thumbs up Paul optimism”, this song is guaranteed to make your friends stop their babbling mid sentence to turn and say “Paul McCartney?! Really??”

Steely Dan – Do It Again
So smooth. So seventies. Everyone’s favourite Dad band deliver their masterpiece over slinky percussion and sitar. The intro with that wooden stick instrument that always used to be in the music box at school just makes your friends want to get back up and dance again. This time – sexy. 

Fleetwood Mac – Everywhere
A classic and a classic for a reason. This funky sparse McVie penned number about the flushes of early love brings everyone together for that soaring chorus no matter what kinda night it’s played at. 


CHAKA KHAN’T 

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Can’t Keep Checking My Phone
This is a fairly new one, and it’s always a surprise hit as a last song. Its jangly riffs and banging baseline are perfect to give your weekend a gentle , funky little send-off.

Drizabone – Real Love 
That nineties sax. I needn’t say more. 


Thelma Houston – I’m Here Again
This one is a rare beast – a grower, and a show-er!

Catch Two Girls One Cub with Nic Fisher at Last Resort this Sunday, 23 August at Dalston Superstore from 4pm!
