Beary Carey goes into the Woods!

Beary Carey goes into the Woods!

Ahead of the Pleased Spring Fling, resident DJ and promoter Beary Carey caught up with one of the masterminds behind the night, Paul Woods. Having worked with Jon Pleased Wimmin since the nineties, Paul is well-versed in the art of party throwing! The boys caught up to chat Pleased history, favourite tracks and chat up lines! 

did you and Jon meet ?

Jon and I met in the record store I worked in about 15 years ago!! He used to buy his records from me and we always chatted when he came in and I remember the day he asked me if I would be interested in DJing with him at a new night he had planned at Velvet Underground. Pleased was born in the nineties and now here we are today going full circle! 

Tell us your best and worst memory of Pleased ?

Best Moment and Worst: Wow! so many good moments. Probably being voted best club night in the nineties...Worst?? NOT ONE. Every week was a scream, as is our residency at Superstore !!!

Tell us a secret you’ve never told anyone?

 A secret????... That would be telling... ;0)

Briefs or Boxers ?


Boobs or Bum ?


The one record that’s guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor and the one that’s gonna get you off it fast ?

There's loads!...my fav has to be Donner Summer - I Feel Love OR anything by Chic. Worst....hmmmmm anything by R Kelly.

If you could give a younger you some advice – what would it be ?

The drugs don't work. 

Best chat up line, given and received ?

Best chat up line...   Someone once said to me whilst DJing ,"These lips won't kiss themselves you know!"... I cracked up. Worst chat up line... In the words of Stardust..."Music sounds better with you..." YUK!

As an original resident of Pleased (then & now), what are the notable differences if any ?

I think we are now starting to get the original vibe of Pleased, Pleased back in the day was a very care free crowd who just loved the music Jon and I played and danced from the moment they got in to the moment they left....We are now starting to see that happen at the Dalston Superstore, its a great venue, the atmosphere is fab and the people seem to be having a great time. 

Dream DJ guest ?

Daft Punk.

How do you feel about getting called a DILF (DJ I’d like to …)

Hahahaha... Flattered!

Catch Paul Woods at Pleased on Friday 4 March from 9pm-3am at Dalston Superstore.
