Biography

From a long background of warehouses, free beach parties in Ibiza, raves at DC10 and across Europe and the UK, Veryverywrongindeed and its record label Veryverywrongindeed Recordings are the end result of decades of work from of one of the UK’s underground heroes, Tim Sheridan. With rave review support from artists from Dan Ghenacia to Sebo K, Laurent Garnier to Arnaud Rebotini, the Veryverywrongindeed label was called “really freaky” and “one to watch” by IDJ and its London warehouse parties were described by DJ mag as “deliciously sideways”.

Sheridan, meanwhile, has a DJ career spanning 24 years. From founder of KISS FM in the north to being the man who made Ministry cool again with his night Nastydirtysexmusic and best-selling compilation of the same name. He was playing minimal and techno in Ibiza when 99% of DJs were playing bongos, flamenco and sunshine.

His stable of VVWI artists stretches from Andre Crom to dub KULT to Johnny Arthur to up-and-coming types like Zigmund Slezak, Josh Tweek, and of course UK wonderkids Spektre - who will releasing their debut album, Spektre LIVE!, on Veryverywrongindeed just a few weeks before as well as playing at Glade itself with Mr C, Mike Monday and Sheridan.

What’s Veryverywrongindeed? We’ll leave it to Sheridan himself to explain, as he did in this posting to the ubercool Faith newsgroup earlier this month: “I called my last thing NASTYDIRTYSEXMUSIC simply to knock up an imaginary genre specifically to avoid being pigeonholed. It kind of worked although those who tried to copy it since have got it dead wrong. So it had to end. Same goes for VERYVERYWRONGINDEED. Does what it says on the tin. I could have gone for ‘ALLMYFAVOURITETUNESTHATYOURNOT SUPPOSEDTOPLAYINIBIZA’ or ‘WONKYWEIRDORECORDSTHATCONFUSETHEFUCKOUT OFYOUSOBERNEVERMINDINCLUBS’ but you have to be descriptive AND snappy”.
