Killer Kitsch Bio

Killer Kitsch was launched in 2005 at The Buff, Bath Lane, Glasgow. The idea: the duo felt
what was lacking in clubbing at the time, was a club night which bridged the gap between ‘serious
dance’ nights and student unions. So on Tuesday the 3rd of February Killer Kitsch was born. In the
years which followed the club would become busier and busier and before long the residents were
filling both floors at the venue on a weekly busy. Once the residents had established Killer Kitsch’s
identity, they started booking guests who they felt reflected that. Over the years have included: The
Glimmers, Optimo, Shir Khan, Simian Mobile Disco, Druzzi (The Rapture), Drop The Lime, Alex
Metric, Joe Godard (Hot Chip), Kris Menace, Nadastrom and Yolanda Be Cool.
With the success of the Buff Club event and the growing strength of the Killer Kitsch brand, they
were able to strike out and promote beyond the Buff Club, mounting successful one off events at the
Sub-Club (with Reset! and Black Strobe), La Cheetah under the “Oh My Days” event as well as a longterm
weekly Edinburgh satellite KK night at Cabaret Voltaire. Underpinning the success of each
event was the skills of the KK residents, reflecting their passion for music as well as their ability to
confidently command the dance-floor.

A full historical list of Killer Kitsch guests runs as follows -: The Glimmers, Optimo, Drop The Lime,
Shir Khan, Simian Mobile Disco, Druzzi (The Rapture), Drop The Lime, Alex Metric, Detboi, Joe
Godard (Hot Chip), Kris Menace, Nadastrom, Grum, Dubble Dutch, Ado, Clouds, Paul Chambers, AC
Slater, Thomas Von Party, Neoteric, Nom De Strip, Dem Slackers, Brenmar, Friendly Fires, and
Yolanda Be Cool. The residents have additionally been invited to play guest sets a various club
nights and festivals over the years including: Death Disco (The Arches), Rock Ness (headlined the
Southern Comfort tent), How’s Your Party (Sub Club), T In The Park, Mixed Bizness (Glasgow School
of Art) and the Iona Beach Party.

The Killer Kitsch crew are able to professionally organise, promote and event manage their shows to
a very high degree. Their long established success within the Glasgow club scene means that they

with enthusiasm.
