On the 22nd of march we will be battling numerous others in the UK's first ipod battle, to be held in bethnal green working mens club. Basically, heres how it works:
-Teams (comprising of two or three people) get a minute to sonically stamp thier oponents into the dirt, without the use of mixing or effects. Just a plain old ipod.
-The two teams in the ring (a real boxing ring) battle it out, back and forth until a horn is sounded at the end of the 20 minute-long round.
-Using a decibelometer the referee measures the crowds' reaction to each teams' performance.
-Competition is evened out by allowing each team an equal amount of seats in the ringside.
-The team with the more applause stay on to the next round where a new opponent faces them in the ring.
-And the prize? errr...an ipod?

Im not in a position to give away any clues as to what we are going to be cueing up at this stage in the game.
But lets just say that if you like the Pet shop boys, you might want to walk this way.
