This Feeling has been making waves in the indie world since late last year. Held monthly at the oh so stylish Parker McMillan in EC1, the night aims to "merge contemporary indie aesthetics with the underground refuge of Parker McMilian in order to create a night that will be truly big". It lands this month on Friday (28 September) starring Oasis' Andy Bell DJing, The Rifles and The Lea Shores performing acoustic sets and a whole bundle of other indie goodness.
When and why did you set your night up?
We set This Feeling up last October for somewhere where all our mates could go out and “have it”. It’s been growing since; making news in The Sun, NME and it’s Kasabian and Noel Gallagher’s favourite club.
What do you do in the real world?
What is it about the music you play that is so special?
It’s what the dancefloor wants to hear and we also expose bands we know are immense and about to break (eg. We were the first London club to play The Enemy)
Who's the best performer you've ever had down?
It’s going to be hard to top Tom Clarke (The Enemy) doing an acoustic set flanked by 2 fully dressed Stormtroopers from Star Wars
Have you had any celebs on your dancefloor?
Loads, Kasabian, Noel Gallagher, Zak Starkey, Mani, Noel Fielding, The Rifles, Embrace, and, erm, Tina from S Club 7.
Why did you pick your venue?
Kasabian wrote a song called “The Last Trip”. It’s chorus cries “THIS FEELING!” and captures everything we’re creating at our club; good times, friendships, getting leathered!
What's your dream venue?
Macarena Stadium! Brazil
Tell us one artist who we've probably not heard of that we should check out.
Jersey Budd – sure to be the find of 2008 and who’ll wipe away the whining of Blunt, Morrison, et al. He’ll put balls back into singer/songwritering
What other club nights do you like going to in London? What's your all time favourite night?
Another Music = Another Kitchen is top draw! All time fav London indie night was “The Cabbage Patch”. Anyone remember that? We’ve tried to recreate those good times at This Feeling.
What's your all time floorfiller, and your current favourite track?
Pounding by Doves. And Current fav track has to be “Your Not Alone” By The Enemy. Immense.
The next installment of This Feeling is this Friday at Parker McMillan (nearest tubes Barbican & Moorgate) from 9.30pm 'til 3am. You can buy tickets in advance for £8 or £10 on the door.
