Pecker Top Ten Dance Tracks (kind of)

Ahead of Pecker this Friday, the four residents, Dirtbox duo Gibson and The Duchess Of Pork plus Grizzle beauties John Sizzle and A Man To Pet share their favourite dance tracks…

A Man To Pet
Kylie Minogue – I Should Be So Lucky

“With Kylie I couldn’t understand a word back then, I was only 4.

So I was singing it in a Greek way that was meaning leave the pistol Laki, Laki as a boy’s name.

So Laki was a man with a pistol that he had to leave it.

I wanted to be beautiful like Kylie but I end up looking like A Man To Pet”

John Sizzle
Malcolm McLaren – Deep In Vogue

“And you thought Madonna was Queen Plagiarist! Step forward the genius that was McLaren. The vid for this track is j’maze and showcases the vogue we all aspired to way back in 1989. Check out the Orbit and Mark Moore remix… stunning, girl!”

Gibson
The Beloved – Sweet Harmony


“I find it hard to believe it’s 22 years old and it still as powerful and current now. The production is really simple production kinda like Hot Chip today. Always felt this track was really unifying with people.”

Tiga – Burning Down


“This track will always remind ME of the hotness that was The Cock at The Ghetto. And I can’t remember that much of what was going on there. But it was always rammed with hot guys. I think.”

A Man To Pet
Kim Wilde – You Came

“I came out to my cousin to this song don’t know why

I think was the white with that Kim wearing on that video with the red scarf something makes me come to this idea

also I wanted to fuck Kim

weird.”

John Sizzle
101 – Rock To The Beat 

“Aciiiiiiid! We’re here in 1988 and sweating our nads off in THE summer of love. Pills were £20 each…. and were proper strong. This track used to smash it at legendary rave nights like Troll which was in the Soundshaft, adjoined to Heaven. You could go between the clubs and get totally trolled. Nice one matey.”

Gibson
Utah Saints – Something Good

“This track has so much energy, love the synths. Reminds me of my raving days and of course Kate Bush vocals make it a perfect collab.”

The Duchess of Pork
Company B – Fascinated

“It’s an old Dirtbox favourite that used to get played every single time. Really good with a sniff of amyl.”

A Man To Pet
Michael Jackson – In The Closet

“I came out to my school with keep it in the closet

my teachers expand me to the next level it was absolutly traumatic

last but not list was leaving the school for prostitution with this song.”

“Then I was officially out

but never to my dad and mum.”

Gibson
Fax Yourself feat Carrie Ann – Strut Your Techno Stuff

“This track is the seminal new beat track and really defines some of the early music I played when we first started Dirtbox.”

The Duchess of Pork
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit

“This one’s not really a dance track but I’ll always remember 16 year old me going crazy to this at the local alternative bar and then having to cycle home in the freezing cold in a t-shirt because a tramp from the station next door had pissed on my tie-dye jumper and suede jacket in the corner.”

John Sizzle
Dionne – Come Get My Lovin’

“I’m not leaving the 2nd Summer Of Love! This groove from Dionne was everywhere and perfect for a big pile of chillin’ queens having a love-in on the banquettes of clubs from Ibiza to New York to Canvey Island. Proper gorgey surging house beats baby.”

Join the Pecker boys this Friday 4th April at Dalston Superstore from 9pm – 3am with special guest Colby B.
