On Sunday I had the privilege of DJing for Pasta Paul at Quiet Night Out. QNO is a night that Paul has been running for a couple of years, and he decided to do a special one for this years SWAP festival. Alongside a roster of Manchesters best acoustic artists, there was also a collection of DJ's, featuring Licktronica, Dunk Le Chunk, Coops and me.

I've known Mike (aka Keswicklemon) from Licktronica for a while. He plays really great electronica and he really knows his stuff: He's the kind of person that you always learn something from whenever you speak to them. Anyway, he started playing a song, and it was in the back of my head as to what it was. I walked over and asked, and he replyed "Beirut". Alarm bells went off - "of COURSE!!" - but then I noticed he was pulling a face. It's going off in that part of the world again, so I think it was his way of paying tribute.

MP3 Beirut - Postcards from Italy

PS - That's Dunk in the picture, not me.
