It’s 1 YEAR today since we started this blogging madness. This little baby of a blog was named after The Number 20 bus. This bus will take you to where you need to go in Oslo. Well almost where you need to go. Its a pretty boring bus ride, but Shari and Vari managed to make it fun and free. Just like us and our blog… Fun and free!! Hmm? ;-)
Our main aim with this blog is to spread our LOVE for music and art. And not at least show respect and support for the artists we blog . The music industry is fragile like our nerves on a Sunday. We need to nurture whats left of it/them. So please for 2010 buy the music, show support and eat sandwiches!
VARI SAYS TO SHARI: It has been the year of the blog. I have got permanent shoulder damage because of it. We need to play in real time. Make it happen! !!FIREWORKS!!
SHARI SAYS TO VARI: I know! I have R.S.I (Repetitive Strain Injury) from all this extremely passionate blogging dedication to YOU (my partner in blog crime and best friend), music, the 20 and it’s supporters, the talented people we are so lucky to be in contact with and obviously how much we miss each other! Separation sucks sooooooooooo much! 2010 we are reunited! !!FIREFUCKINGWORKS !!
THANK YOU EVERYONE! For all the overwhelming support and feedback through the year. A special thank you to all the artists that have graced us with their words, music and art! You know who you are!
Much Love & Everlasting Respect Shari & Vari Forever Ever! xxxxxx

DJ Harri is synonymous with Glasgow’s vibrant House scene. His record breaking 20 year residency at the Sub Club was the foundation for it’s growth into one of the UK’s premier dance venues. Currently Harri is working on new material with The Revenge (Five20East) and has also been working on a collection of edits for Glasgow based L.E.S.S. Productions. Very nice stuff!
Herb Alpert – Rotation (DJ Harri Edit)
He never disappoints.
The Revenge – Just Be Good To Me feat. Danielle Moore (Original Mix)
Man, how exciting is this shit!!! Not only did I get to hear the genius himself The Revenge (AKA Graeme Clark) play a relentlessly uncompromising wonderfully deep and funky as fuck set last month, but our new friend was totally happy to jump on board The Number 20 and answer some of our admittedly girlie questions… ;-) And all of this right in time for the release of the third installment in the ‘Instruments Of Rapture’ series, which brings OOFT & The Revenge together for some summer versions. Now as you can imagine choosing which track to blog from the killer new trilogy of pitched down house workouts wasn’t easy. However after listening to them all about 20 times I finally decided on ‘Hotz 4 U’. I know you’re gonna love it.
So as usual download the teaser, read the interview, support the music forever and ever and thank us later!
We’re soooo lucky! Shari & Vari xx
Who is The Revenge?
The Revenge is me. I think?
How many aliases do you have?
Both feet and hands are required for that calculation.
How did this whole music thing start?
“Borrowing” my dad’s 4-track while he was out at work and doing some jams with a couple of old drum machines before he got back.
What inspires you?
In all honesty, inspiration comes from everywhere for me. It could be a film, a book, a situation…
Favorite club to play in?
The Sub Club, Glasgow. Saturday nights there have no equal.
Weirdest gig you’ve ever done?
They are all weird in their own beautiful way. Although there was one last year at Rockness in Scotland where this guy just stood and pointed at us for an hour. Obviously his mum hadn’t told him it was rude to point.
What do you love to play the most?
I have no preference really – whatever fits the mood of the night.
It might be disco or techno. I like so many styles of music that genre is irrelevant if the crowd are with me.
What do you listen to when you want to relax?
Anything by John Martyn – god rest his soul.
Who are you hereo’s?
No heroes – but in musical terms I have a lot of respect for anybody who does their own thing without ego.
Who would you kill to see play?
I’m a big fan of Steely Dan – but murder is probably a step to far to see them play.
Do you sing in the shower?
No – I wouldn’t put the shower through that torture.
Do you watch TV?
Not really – I tend to fall asleep when I watch TV.
A white pudding supper perhaps – it’s an East of Scotland traditional meal. If you haven’t tried it, I probably wouldn’t. I love a good curry or Thai or almost anything that’s put in front of me. Although the guys from Sorry Grandma in Melbourne took me out for snails before the gig – and I had to politely decline as I don’t generally DJ after snails.
Scotland. It’s a beautiful place. Most of the time. Don’t expect sun.
