NEW NOIR PARTY! SATURDAY 11TH. OF JULY 2009. NOIR IN ASSOCIATION WITH VICE PRESENT THE VICE MAGAZINE LAUNCH AND LOU HAYTER FROM NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB!
1 DAY TO GO YA'LL!
NOIR IN ASSOCIATION WITH VICE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT THE LAUNCH OF VICE MAGAZINE SOUTH AFRICA AND THEIR HEADLINER ACT:
Lou Hayter from New Young Pony Club (DJ Set), London/UK
We all know the New Young Pony Club from hits like "Ice Cream, "The Get Go", "Jerk me" and "Fan". The London based band New Young Pony Club is at the heart of the indie electronica scene and features Lou Hayter (Dj & keyboards), Tahita Bulmer (vocals), Andy Spence (guitar), Igor Volk (bass) and Sarah Jones (drums). Inspired by LCD Soundsystem and Gang of Four, the band's stylish electro-disco blend arrived with the release of the 'Ice Cream' 7" in February 2005. Their music style can be classified as New Wave, Post-punk revival, Electropop, New Rave and Alternative Dance. Just up NOIRs' street! We won't bring the whole band, but we will bring you its most enigmatic member(!); the Beautiful and stylish Lou Hayter (DJ and keyboardist for the Ponies) for a rockin' Dj set. Next to The New Young Pony Club, Lou is also founding member and front lady of her solo project band the New Sins. Dj-ing allover the place, she will be joining us fresh from a Dj Set at the legendary Isle of Wight festival to continue the party in Jozi!
Other live performances on the night will consist of:
- NEXT OF KIN (Cape Town):
Indie-tech group, Next of Kin is the production duo of Jimmy Smith & David Anderson. With their brand of meaty, beefy cross-overs complete with vocoders, handclaps and robotic guitar solos, Next of Kin injects a trademark crunch into their catalogue, bringing a new argument to the whole indie /dance debate.
- DIRTY HERZ (Joburg):
Joburg's newly formed energetic Indie-dance group Dirty Herz consisting of Frank van Rooijen & André Frauenstein is taking the music industry by storm. With already firm support from industry heavyweights like Fake Blood, Hervé, Mr. Oizo and Armand van Helden they're bound to take the roof of this joint! They produce an unhealthy mix of Electro Punk, Indie Dance, Dub&Bass, Punk Step, Breakbeats, Electronic Particles, Nu Rave, Oldskool House, Dub Step, Electro Funk and other shyte!

- NEW LATE ADDITION TO THE PARTY!: YESTERDAYS PUPIL (Joburg):
People have described his music as:
"an unconscious celebration sketched in lines and colours and performed hasten and slowly"
"a combination of sounds tossed in a bin, shaken around, the results sometimes reflect a hint of pop, twisted and slighty disturbing pop"
"the offspring of two genres, pop and completely-out-of-your-fucking-mindness"
The live performances will be supported by NOIR resident Dj's:
- Johnny Cache
MTV will be present to record this special evening.
The/Sweat/Shop sample sale at the night will see cost price one-off samples from Carhartt, Mooks, Pointer Shoes and RVCA clothing's 2010 ranges.

So it was a joll, a huge fuckin' joll we might add! What a rad night! We'd like to thank The Shadowclub for their sick live performance and Dj's: Fleischwolf (NOIR resident DJ), Johnny Cache (NOIR resident DJ), Velcro (NOIR resident DJ) and Casioheart for their dope beats 'n tunes. A massive high 5 goes out to Nadine for letting us use her insane loft apartment with roof terrace, a huge high 5 to Rudi for arranging the boomin' system and a high 5 to the Romaster for providing the NOIR video footage.
Then there were 11 peeps stuck in a an elevator, Ooops. Sorry for that! But hey, a special location asks for unforeseen events... Once again, a respec 'n thanks to everyone who was there and made the first NOIR party a huge success. The next NOIR party will follow within the next 2 months!
