'MY IDEA OF a perfect night would probably be going to a hip hop night and checking out loads of hip hop bands. I guess the best place would be in New York, some big place in Manhattan rather than somewhere dodgy, know what I mean? That's got to be the place for it.
‘It wouldn’t be now, though. If I could go at any time, it would be in the mid-to-late 805. The ideal line-up for me would be along the lines of The Ultra Magnetic MCs, Main Source, Gangstarr and Tribe Called Quest. You've got to add Public Enemy to that list as well, of course. I'd go along to the club with my best mates who are into hip hop, and we’d spend the day before going round the shops looking for records, finding old tracks.
'I wouldn't want to play at the club, though, I do enough of that. I'd just chill out and take it all in for a change. And I wouldn't be hiding in a back room, you‘d definitely find me out front hanging at the bar most of the time, but I'd get in a bit of dancing as well. Afterwards we’d borrow someone's Lear jet and nip down the coast to chill out on a nice beach in Miami. That would be nice, wouldn't it? (Rory Weller)
