Community Skratch Games 2011 @ 126
By Kernan Andrews
THE COMMUNITY Skratch Games 2011, celebrating turntable manipulation and sample culture, opens this evening at 8pm at the 126 Gallery, Queen Street.
The opening will see the launch of Deviant & Naive Ted’s Send In The Hounds 12”. This is an Irish folk based record, created from a box of dusty old records, performed, compiled and arranged by hand with minimal digital manipulation.
The first 50 12”s will come with individual inserts illustrated by designer JP Hartnett, a selection of whose work for Community Skratch will also be exhibited during the event.
There will also be performances from Deviant, Sebi C, and improvised performance from the Community Skratch Players (DJs Jimmy Penguin, Mikey Fingers and Tweek), alongside Tony Higgins, Andrew Madec, and Simon Kenny.
On Good Friday at 8pm there will be a screening of A Night at the Knitting Factory, the 2004 concert movie, featuring The Beat Junkies performing tracks from DJ D-Styles album Phantazmagorea.
