Win Tickets For Booka Shade This Friday

Roll up for a competition to win tickets to a mind-bendingly good techno band you may never have heard of.

If so, I’m taking it on myself to introduce you to, er, Frankfurt’s finest. This pair of synth-addled tech-meisters make the kind of music that your body can but dance to – while your brain does autobahns and Bavarian death forests and, um, hot/difficult men fighting dark moods naked. Basically awesome, although not so great for wedding discos.

Any-hoo, if you haven’t thrown yourself at the nearest Fierce Angel compilation yet there’s good news: you can hear Booka Shade at Kentish Town Forum this Friday. Despite the all-round electro-tech excellence of albums The Sun & the Neon Light and this year’s More! somebody somewhere misjudged the duo’s popularity – the concert is a payback for Booka Shade’s Lovebox Festival appearance getting cancelled due to overcrowding. Yes, it’s like the Beatles, only with modern instruments.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, answer this: What was Booka Shade’s first single from latest album More?

A) Bad Love B) Bad Glove C) Bad Dove

Carefully email your chosen letter to and hope to be both correct and chosen.
