Gimme gimme more

Last night, Kiss & Make Up got to DJ at the star-studded More re-launch party. We played at midnight for an hour, after our support acts the Queens Of Noize and a man from Radio 1 FM who talked between the songs and made girls kiss each other for chap sticks. Celebrities that we spotted included:
1. Aisleyne from Big Brother in a sparkly dress
2. Liam from Big Brother
3. Brian the snood-wearing American choreographer from X-Factor, who had a go as a judge before they sensationally brought Louis back
4. Someone from Hollyoaks
5. Anthony Costa off Blue
6. Liz McLarnon off Atomic Kitten
7. Two people from Britannia High
8. Um... I think that was it.
We were too scared to take any pictures of them. Soz.

You can see the rest of the pictures from the night here.

Sing the songs that lovers sing

Last night's second-ever Kiss & Make Up was amazing. Thanks to everyone who came. Photos from the night are here and on our Facebook group.
The first twelve songs of the night were:
You've Got To Be A Hustler If You Want To Get On – Sue Wilkinson
Top Ten Sexes – Lewis Furey
Homosapien – Pete Shelley
You And Me Both – Arthur Russell
Little Lies (Extended Version) – Fleetwood Mac
Kiss & Make Up – Saint Etienne
She's A Rainbow – World Of Twist
Bedazzled – Drimbl Wedge & the Vegetation
Black & White Town – Doves
Paninaro – Pet Shop Boys
The Loving Kind – Girls Aloud
Soon (Andy Weatherall Remix) – My Bloody Valentine.
Nice. After that, it all got a bit confusing and we forgot to write anything down. Join us for more of the same and more on Friday 5th December, from 8pm, at the Vauxhall Griffin. It'll be almost Christmas then, so expect some seasonal treats (a tin of Roses and the Sound Of Music on the TV).
