Hey, mister DJ - Cruel Britannia
Long time, no hear eh?
It’s a burnin’ summer here folks and heatwaves make me lazier on the writing front…
Here, I gotta talk about this chap who calls himself Cruel Britannia and is, (you’ve guessed it, if you don’t know him yet) an internet radio show presenter, DJ at actual events & gigs when asked, occasionally remixes stuff for bands and invented the foundations for something called World Goth Day.
He started at The Giffard Arms in Wolverhampton as resident DJ of Seven Deadly Hertz (7DHz) and Hex In The City spinning goth, deathrock, alternative '80's and industrial from 2003 to 2007 and also running an '80's night at the Giffard Arms called 'I Wanna F*ck Debbie Harry' & 'Pandemonium' at The Haygate in Telford.
His DJ sessions usually revolve around 80's & 90's goth and alternative 80's genres, but can include (where appropriate) goth from 2000+ onwards, deathrock, guitar-based industrial and synthpop (not hard electro or 'oontz-oontz' EBM). He is mostly addressing to the ones who were 'getting their goth on' in the '80's & '90's.
He is currently a resident DJ in Second Life at Club Gothika, a virtual club owned by the awesome DJ Bronxelf who was behind the World Goth Day event in Second Life and raised quite a lump of money for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation in doing so.
Catch him live on the waves at:
or on his famous Fadeout series here:
or even at
on the famous Radio Nightbreed
and listen to proper music, you obnoxious little pretenders!
