Nobody in their right mind would do what he is doing unless its supposed to be an absolute joke. Why not keep doing it if you keep getting paid to do it. If promoters and people are dumb enough to take him seriously, then rock on Pete!
I was dragged down to see this pathetic has-been burnt-out clown in Ottawa last year. What a fucking embarassment.
He didn't mix at all. His CDJs would count down, and they were burned so that the track ended immediately on a down-beat, and then he would smack play on the next one. That's it. I was behind the decks the whole time, and pointing at him, talking to my girlfriend and explaining to her why he was such a sorry pathetic shit (past accomplishments notwithstanding).
He sees me pointing, and then sticks his retarded finger in the air and slowly lowers it at me, like I'm in some kind of connection with him, one of those "FUCK YEAH BUDDY!" points. It took all I had not to burst out laughing.
I'll be honest, I don't think that mix DJing takes any significant talent (I did it for years and believe me, compared to making your own music it's fucking NOTHING). Old timer-forum haunts might recall some of my DJs have no talent rants on this board. But, I gotta say, Peter Hook takes the fucking cake for no-talent losers blown out of proportion. The saddest commentary was that everybody, even the promoter and other DJs were so "awed" by his reputation and history, that they couldn't admit the emperor had no clothes.
So, Suburbanbather, I guess that's the final joke of it all. A no talent puke making a mockery of every superficial sycophantic little like-minded goblin in a whole fucking club. Who's the loser now?
