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
