promo foto

“I did all my Christmas shopping at the end of November. I knew I was coming to Brazil so I knew I had to be organised.”

London Horse Meat Disco maestro/ erstwhile Queer Nation legend Luke Howard is spending the Christmas break either DJing in Brazil’s finest alternative nightspots or sunning himself on Rio’s beautiful people paradise of Ipanema Beach.

Skrufff:  What will you be doing on Christmas Day: where will you be?

Luke Howard: “I'll be DJing early in the morning at Dama de Ferro, Rio de Janeiro for their after-Christmas Eve dinner late-night session. And then I’ll be going to the beach on Christmas Day.”

Skrufff: What's been the best Christmas you've ever had?

Luke Howard: “Being on Ipanema beach in 2007, it didn't feel at all Christmas-like which I loved as I am a bit 'Bah Humbug' when it comes to Christmas in London.”

Skrufff: And what's been the worst?

Luke Howard: “I had two friends over to mine for Christmas lunch a few years ago and they had a disagreement about what to watch on telly and fell out. I should've kicked them both out, but I couldn't because it was Christmas, so we endured a very awkward afternoon. In the evening we went to the Eagle (home of Horse Meat Disco) and I got sloshed as it had been such a stressful day.”

Skrufff: What's been the best Christmas present you ever got? and the worst?

Luke Howard: “When I was about 10 my dad bought me a Scalectrix car racing set and I was over the moon. It was the best present ever. I don't know what the worst was. I don't get many presents as an adult so if I get anything it's a bonus!”

Skrufff: What's been the most excessive Xmas party you've attended?

Luke Howard: “I DJed at the Guardian newspaper Christmas party a few years ago. It was a pretty big affair in an unused warehouse space in Covent Garden. It had a 70's theme and they had gone to town on the decor and there was plenty  of free booze and drunk journalists.”

Skrufff: Have you ever regretted anything you've done at a Christmas party?

Luke Howard: “I went to a Christmas party at Heaven when I was about 18. There was a free punch, one glass as you arrived, but I kept going back to the person serving it and getting more drinks. I got blind drunk and snogged a friend of mine - who was very surprised. I took the night bus home and vomited for the whole journey with my head between my knees, when I finally lifted my head I had gone about 3 miles past my bus stop and had to walk back in the freezing cold.”

Skrufff: What's your upcoming release news etc?

Luke Howard: “I have a single coming out under the name Miss Cheesecake next year and am in the studio with Horse Meat Disco working on original stuff with James Hillard, Jim Stanton and Severino.”
