This route is not direct. The time of embarkation is summer 1989, our point of departure, Club Barraca, Valencia, the epicentre of La Ruta Del Bakalao. Passengers on this journey are Martyn Walsh, bass player and songwriter of Manchester band Inspiral Carpets and Sean Johnston, the band's booking agent and aspiring DJ. Our passengers will travel via separate routes, Martyn will sign to Mute Records and become the author of numerous top 40 hits and perform a myriad of worldwide shows. Sean will become a successful underground dance music producer as the Hardway Bros and DJ partner to the late Andrew Weatherall as A Love from Outer Space. Pulled back together by the gravitational waves of Weatherall's untimely demise earlier this year, this is the music of their journey , ¡La Ruta!
Funded in 2009, Days of Being Wild is a French electronic label based in London and known for its “disco noir” / post punk tainted club releases and its penchant for the slower side of dance music. Headed by Franz Kirmann and Samuel Berdah, Days of Being Wild, has recently given its name to a machine-only live act evolving parallel to the label and further deepening that slower, twisted approach that the pair likes to call “slightly deranged club music”.
