“A great philosopher once wrote, ‘Naughty naughty very naughty’.” Iconic club figure Mr C will headline Strange Fruit on Saturday November 23, with support from Bombis Records label boss Dave Brennan, Tonkind’s Marky and Strange Fruit main man Jordan Deck.
Mr C, born Richard West, made his name as an MC in London nightclubs while still a teenager. He subsequently carved out a legacy in club folklore, learning to DJ, opening The End nightclub in London, founding multiple record labels and topping the charts with his group The Shamen, who released the classic single ‘Ebeneezer Goode’. “It was so cleverly written that a lot of people still don’t get it,” said West when discussing the track’s success last year. “One way, it’s about this guy called Ebeneezer Goode; another way, it’s about ecstasy.” Mr C remains a relevant figure on the cutting-edge of club culture today, collaborating with [a]pendics.shuffle, Omid 16B and Adultnapper under the moniker Sycophant Slags and releasing on labels such as Poker Flat, Wagon Repair Records, Get Physical Records and Adjunct Audio.
The revelry commences at 9pm, with pre-sale tickets available online for $10.
