It feels like ages since Dirty Pretty Things split up, but maybe not for them. The two were spotted at Tony Linkin's farewell party last week ("The music industry is losing someone of impeccable taste" said Anthony Thornton), and now they seem to be ready to launch themselves in a new territory. This comes from NME.com:
"Former Dirty Pretty Things members Didz Hammond and Anthony Rossamondo are launching a new club night in London. The inaugural Younger Than Yesterday Sunday session takes place at Camden's Proud Galleries this Sunday (April 5) and boasts DJ sets from Klaxons member Jamie Reynolds and The Big Pink. Additionally, the two hosts will be performing an acoustic covers set of old and new favourites, and the pair promise some 'very very special live guests'. Named after the Byrds' album from 1967, the session is designed to encourage collaboration, with musicians encouraged to bring instruments along. There is also a concessions list for musicians. Hammond describes the night as like "Scotch Of St James, the Crawdaddy Club, Exploding Plastic Inevitable, the Heavenly Social and Sonic Mook Experiment, minced together and flat on their backs, wasted, yet hyper-conscious". For more information go to Proudcamden.com while a Facebook group for the night can be found here".
Besides, Didz and Gary are DJing in Dublin, at JAM @ ThinkTank, Eustace St., Temple Bar on 2 April; and Didz is dj-ing (alone) at Dirty South on Friday 3 April, and at the Old Blue Last (launch party for the Tatianas' new single) on 8 April. Dance, dance, dance!
