At Bootie I had a great time, met loads of great local bootleggers – some of the US’s best DJs and remixers – such as Adrian and Mysterious D, DJ Tripp, Partyben, Matt Hite, Dada and loads others….I was staying with DJ Jay-R – I still miss SF and hope to get back there soon. I was proud to be the first English bootlegger to play there (I think that’s right?) and I seem to have started a trend what with GHP, Payroll and Lionel Vinyl all going out to play since then! (not that I’m in their category, oh no…but I’m really proud that I was one of the early international guests at Bootie :-D) .
Smells Like Sylvester gets an honourable mention because it got me my airplay on XFM; and was my intro for Bootie. It’s Nirvana vs Sylvester ‘Mighty Real’ and the intro is Sandra Bernhard’s great tribute to the gold-lamed afro’d one. This is the rare full version played on the night, which mixes in Pansy Division’s ‘Smells Like Queer Spirit’ – the shorter version was the one played on XFM.
