Quirky flyer from June 1994: Doof was booked on the basis of his first EP Disposable Hymns of the Infinite, his only release on tasteful techno label Novamute. Unbeknownst to us, he had subsequently been heavily infected by the Trance bug. DJ sets from Mike Paradinas (μ-Ziq/Planet μ) and Danny Briotett (from my personal heroes Renegade Soundwave) hopefuly made up for this mishap. The following week saw a performance from the mighty Autechre, their second show at Quirky after their London debut alongside Reload (Global Communication) and Locust (Mark Van Hoen) in November 1993. Playing on the same bill as Auteche on 16 June 94 were Rephlex signings Vulva, making their live debut. Other proud Quirky firsts include the inaugural London DJ appearance of Detroit’s Claude Young and the debut live appearance anywhere outside of Finland from Pan Sonic.
