Gutterslut reminded us of the threatened gigantic price hike for playing music in clubs and bars in Germany. Click the headline for details and what you can do. Gutterslut say: "If GEMA (the equivalent of UK's PRS - Performing Rights Society) goes ahead with their crazy new reform plans of increasing fees by 1000%* there will be no more Berlin clubbing the way we know and love it." Needless to say Discodamaged does agree with Gutterslut, we have already published something about it on our Berlin site.

The GUTTERSLUT crew return for their annual GUTTERBALL - Saturday 19th November 2011, at Rhythm Factory, London!!
Dig out your WIGS, HEELS and GLOSS and dress in the most outrageous way....the GUTTERBALL is back and HOSTED by unique performance artist and SUPER STAR tranny tyrant JONNY WOO. The 2011 competition will run throughout the night with Woo dishing out the scorecards for the trashiest, dressed up Slut in "Dem Haus"!
Back at Rhythm Factory in London, the greatest Dj line up on the night will see:
In the Rave Ballroom:
HANNAH HOLLAND (BATTY BASS):
East London's rising star doesn't need much introduction. Hannah has rocked dance floors all over the world and has remixed the likes of DJ HELL and most recently PLANNINGTOROCK, to name a few. Head Honcho of Batty Bass Recordings, it was with her incredible Paris Acid Ball release last year, on that same label, that Hannah fully broke through as a producer, picking up love and plays from corners as diverse as Ellen Allien, Jesse Rose, Heidi, Danny Rampling. Batty Bass released their first long player at the start of the year, which picked up plaudits far and wide.
ALEXANDER PARADE (BUGGED OUT! /TRAILER TRASH):
From London to Berlin, Alexander Parade is one name you need to keep a close eye on. In the space of a year his forward thinking drive for real Techno and Sexy Deep House has already seen him share the bill with Techno don's such as Green Velvet, Hobo (Minus) and Matt Walsh (Turbo Records). He's one half of the driving force behind Dalston's underground Techno party " Techno In My Fridge".
Alongside GutterSlut residents PER QX, NIC FISHER and MISS CRYSTAL MC.
In the Disco Ballroom:
MC GAFF E (LIVE/DJ SET):
After an amazing impromptu performance for us in Berlin, Brisbane born GAFF E has been shipped from the clutches of the London psychedelic 'club kids' scene, with a swift sprinkle of stylistic kitsch performance attire. She's produced music with the likes of Thomas Bullock (Rub n Tug), Edu K, Kid Kenobi and Drugmoney, and has performed and DJed at major festivals including Glastonbury, Lovebox, Bestival, and Big Day Out (among others).
JOHN SIZZLE (GAY BINGO) AND MIAMI AND HER SOUND MACHINE:
One third of the Gay Bingo crew, JOHN SIZZLE has been a regular face behind the decks at GutterSlut and we love his high energy, italo disco sets and his beautifully extravagant looks. For this year's GUTTERBALL we've decided to team him up with GutterBall 2009 winner, the amazual MIAMI AND HER SOUND MACHINE. She's a multi faceted performer and style icon...what can we say....gurl..... she's fierce!!
Alongside DiscoSlut resident, RALF.
Line up: JONNY WOO, HANNAH HOLLAND (BATTY BASS RECORDS), ALEXANDER PARADE (BUGGED OUT!/TRAILER TRASH), PER QX (GS), NIC FISHER (GS), RALF(GS), MISS CRYSTAL MC (GS), MC GAFF E, JOHN SIZZLE (GAY BINGO), MIAMI AND HER SOUND MACHINE.
