What’s happening? I’m writing to invite you to spin at a Red Cross Benefit that Indiepolitik and the Boat are hosting on Wednesday, 9 November 2005. It’s a night called Just Ace of Spades, and if you’d like to be a part of it, we’d love to have you. The catch is that the only song you can play is Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades” over and over again...

Dear Matt,

Are you serious?




Matt assured me that he was, in fact, serious. Six hours of "Ace of Spades". Over and over and over. And over and over. And over.

It's brilliant, if you think about it. Some people fast for 24 hours to raise money. Others push their bodies to the limit by running miles and miles after collecting pledges. How can the lazy and out-of-shape indie community get in on the philanthropic action with minimal physical effort? Why, by enduring hours of searing heavy metal, natch!

I'm unable to DJ that night, but Matt's got a really awesome group of local DJs lined up, including the legendary DJ Davy Love, Fake Prom organizer Dylan Reibling and Wavelength's Ryan McLaren.

Anyway, you should go, for it will be wacky. Click here for all the details. If you can't make it, email Matt (or even myself) to donate.

(Now playing: NOT Motörhead. At all.)

That is pure brilliance. I hear if you play it backwards, "Ace of Spades" tells you to go to church and eat your vegetables.
