Before I start here I’d like to dedicate this amyl-fueled Italo Disco gem to Charlie himself… I was pointed towards it around 5 years ago by Dave S, of the (now sadly defunct) Electric Workers DJ crew.
It was held in a private home that also serves purpose as a private museum… a very dark museum indeed.
Dinner was preceded by a tour of the exhibits by curator and owner William Jamieson.
Here’s the real story in pictures… let’s just say it was bloody marvelous and the company was superb.
Some seriously juicy conversation went down… but then, as Charlie says, “it’s not for everyone”.
I missed pics of the passed Hors D’Oeuvres and the duck:
