What Would You Do... With Dicky Trisco


If you love your disco then you surely must have heard of Dicky Trisco. One of the most loved and influential characters on the scene he has a long standing association with Potato Head’s very own Pete Herbert.

Together they are known as the Disco Deviants and are synonymous with incredible sets, releases, remixes and generally bringing the party no matter where or when and to have them both in town at the same time is guaranteed to be a genuine treat for all in attendance.

Renowned for good times and being a sharp and witty character, we felt it was only right we gave Dicky one of our 'What Would You Do' features to play with and he did not fail to disappoint... Its well worth 5 minute of your time!

A) OWN UP WHEN HE GETS BACK AND APOLOGISE PROFUSELY
B) PUT IT BACK ON ITS STAND AND SAY NOTHING
C) LEG IT!

A. SORRY BUT MY GRANNIE ALWAYS TOLD ME IT WAS FREE TO BE NICE.
SBL: GOOD ANSWER, WE LOVE YOUR GRANNIE TOO.

YOU AND YOUR LONG TERM DANCING PARTNER MR PETE HERBERT TURN UP TO PLAY A GIG A LONG WAY FROM HOME WHEN YOU NOTICE THE POSTERS AND FLYERS HAVE CLEARLY GOT YOU BOTH MIXED UP… AND EVEN THE PROMOTER MEETS YOU AT THE AIRPORT AND THINKS YOU ARE PETE AND VICE VERSA. YOUR MANAGER EXPLAINS THIS IS A PROBLEM AS CULTURALLY IN THIS FAR AWAY LAND IT WOULD BE A MAJOR EMBARRASMENT TO THE PROMOTER… DO YOU:

A) PUT HIM STRAIGHT AND EXPLAIN THE COCK UP REGARDLESS AND ASK HIM TO INTROUDCE YOU CORRECTLY ON THE NIGHT AND EXPLAIN THE MISTAKE TO THE CROWD
B) DECIDE TO ROLL WITH IT TO SAVE FACE FOR THE PROMOTER AND TO HAVE A LAUGH WITH IT AND TRY AND PRETEND TO BE PETE THE ENTIRE WEEKEND
C) TELL HIM HIS MISTAKE BUT THAT’S ITS OK AND TO IGNORE IT DESPITE THE FACT HE MAY GO INTO A MAJOR DEPRESSION OVER IT

B. AND ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF ACTING ON PEDRO’S BEHALF!
SBL: COULDN'T AGREE MORE

YOU ARE EXTREMELY WELL PAID ON COMPLETION TO MAKE A DISCO EDIT FOR A WELL KNOWN DIVA. YOU ARE CONVINCED THE TRACK IS A KILLER CUT, BUT SHE SAYS SHE FUCKING HATES IT, DO YOU:

A) CHANGE IT TO WHAT SHE WANTS DESPITE IT BEING LESSER IN QUALITY AND FAR FORM THE ORIGINAL VERSION BUT SHES HAPPY AND YOU ARE PAID 
B) STICK TO YOUR GUNS AND ARGUE WITH HER REFUSING TO BUDGE TOO MUCH AS YOU KNOW WHATS BEST WHEN IT COMES TO DISCO OBVIOUSLY DESPITE THE FACT SHE WILL BE A TOTAL PAIN IN THE ARSE OVER IT 
C) TELL HER TO FORGET THE TRACK AND THE MONEY AND WALK AWAY TELLING HER NEVER TO DARKEN YOUR DOOR AGAIN

MIXTURE OF B & C BUT MORE POLITE. SAY SORRY THEN WALK AWAY. THERE’S ENOUGH BAD MIXES ALREADY IN THE WORLD. IT’S NOT WORTH IT X
SBL: HAHAHA


ROUND 3: BAHASA INDONESIA (INDONESIAN LANGUAGE) ROUND – NO GOOGLE TRANSLATE CHEATING PLEASE!

IF SOMEONE OFFERS YOU A GLASS OF ‘AIR’ IN BALI WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL GET??

A) A LOCAL SPIRIT A BIT LIKE TEQUILA
B) A GLASS OF WATER
C) AN EMPTY GLASS

B?
SBL: CORRECT

IF SOMEONE SAYS TO YOU ‘PANAS SEKALI’ ARE THEY REFERRING TO:

A) A SEXUAL ACT
B) THE WEATHER
C) A LOCAL DELICACY

I’m hoping C as I know it has something to do with being ‘Hot/spicy’. But obviously that bring A and B into play too.
SBL: UNLUCKY DICKY, THE CORRECT ANSWER IS B. JUST A LITTLE TRIVIA FACTS, HOT/SPICY FOOD IS PEDAS.

IF SOMEONE SCREAMS ‘SATU LAGI’ AT YOU DURING YOUR SET ARE THEY:

A) TELLING YOU YOUR MUSIC SUCKS
B) ASKING WHO YOU ARE
C) BEGGING YOU TO PLAY ONE MORE TUNE

I know ‘Lagi’ means ‘again’ so let’s got for ‘Juan more tune!”.
SBL: CORRECT AGAIN. WE'RE SURE WE'LL HEAR MULTIPLE "SATU LAGI" ON YOUR GIG.
