Rub n Tug is DJ's Thomas and Eric Duncan


It is born out of a common interest in disco rock and booze

The party takes place sporadically in strictly after hours venues insuring them and their friends that they can do as they please


Loft's . Galleries . Bordello's . New York Night Life


Thomas began DJing as a teenager in England with Tonka Hi-Fi . In '91 he visited California and joined the Wicked Crew in a decade of heavy big club storming . When he moved to NYC in '96 he formed the science-fiction punk dance outfit A.R.E Weapons which were 'discovered' by Jarvis Cocker before being signed to Rough Trade over in London


Around this time Thomas and Eric started laying their sleaze onto an unprepared but energetic crowd of down-town types who had never really had the opportunity or the reason to wild-out on the dancefloor in the way these two dudes had been doing all along

Eric came to New York from LA where he grew up absorbing all the magic of house parties and BBQ jams LA Style


When he moved to NY in '96 this > Party Time ! < approach to the night-life was nurtured playing all the sleaziest Lofts and Bars of down-town

The two of them met , clicked and got to it

They have a weekly at Gavin Browns' Passerby called 'campFIRE'

They have remixes and re-edit's in the stores and 'Rub n Tug Records' in the works


They're at a disco near you !!!!
