|Worst DJing moment:||Recently at Planet Angel I was playing the set of my life, I'd just mixed in the Nu NRG mix of G&M project Sunday Afternoon when one of the weather balloons suspended above the DJ booth was burst by this bloke's cigarette... Resulting in the remains of the balloon landing on the record, knocking the needle into the middle with an enormous crunch... Thinking quickly, I grabbed the balloon dropped the needle back where it had been beforehand, pulled the balloon over my head like a swimming hat and fired it off into the crowd to an almighty cheer!!! Phew well recovered!!!!|

swim out and meet the bloody thing!"
