Regular readers will remember that last summer saw all sorts of things (usually festival line-ups) falling off the back of trucks driving through the On The Record’s hood. Well, it seems those trucks are back because a big chunk of the line-up for the DEAF 2008 festival in Dublin in October has just arrived.

The big one will be a bash at The Village, Whelan’s and Upstairs at Whelan’s on Sunday 26 featuring Model 500 (Juan Atkins live with the Underground Resistance crew, including Mike Banks), the Moritz Von Oswald Trio (with Maurizio, Max Louderbauer and Vladislav Delay), Laurent Garnier, the D1 international showcase with AEOD, Annie Hall, Comtron and Baiyon plus even more acts.

During the actual festival from October 22 to 27, there will be DEAF collaborations with UMACK, Forever, Choice Cuts, Foggy Notions, Sweettalk, Maximum Joy, !Kaboogie and Electricity which means appearances in the capital from Nurse with Wound, Harmonia, M83 (with Channel One, Vicar Street, October 24), the fecking awesome Chrome Hoof (Whelan’s, October 25), Andy Votel, Fuck Buttons, Glen Underground, Trans AM (The Village, October 24) plus lots more.

There will also be DEAF events at such galleries as This is Not a Shop, Pallas Studios and the Gallery of Photography, a programme of experimental films from Spain and Africa and technical talks and demos in the Science Gallery.

Best of all, there’s the return of the fantastic DEAF Junior programme with workshops for kids in Sean MacDermott St, Ballymum, Clondalkin and Tallaght featuring D1 producers as the workshop tutors.

We’re now waiting for a truck to drive by with details of DNA.
