Dr. S. Gachet

always loved the fact that there was a rave DJ called Dr. S. Gachet

i bracketed it alongside names like LTJ Bukem


what did these people look like?

how did they come up with the names?

Bukem - it transpired - came from Hawaii 5-0 ("book 'em, Danno")

Dr. S. Gachet, someone told me, was a character from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

however i can find nothing to substantiate that at all

so it remains a mystery and perhaps this is as it should be

a couple of sets from Gachet at his height as a AWOL regular

here's a feature about the return of Dr S. Gachet to the deejaying scene after what seems like a rough personal patch in the 2000s following a jungle-related injury to his back and various other misfortunes

other names from pirate ads and rave flyers  (or artist names) that always tickled me

Shaggy & Breeze
Kieran the Herbalist
Gappa G
Rude Bwoy Monty

Another huge early Gachet tune:
Amazing drumwork for such an early tune.

He was more of a DJ than a producer, but the tunes he did produce were all killer.
