    I know I’m kinda biased in this debate, but I like MC’s (as long as they’re good).

    Don’t mind them in small doses personally, I think they can add something and get the crowd going.

    But… jabbering on incomprehensably over the top of everything without ever letting the music play, asking the sound guy to turn the level up when doing so would just force the rig into limiting, asking for their mic to be turned up so it drowns out the music, and asking for the reload on every fucking tune does wind me up. IMO MCs should be limited to 2 rewinds per set, like a special power on a computer game. Then they’d have to choose wisely – if they try any more than 2 rewinds the DJ should ignore it and make the MC look like a twat. Furthermore, they should only be permitted 3x ‘oh my gosh’/’oh my days’ otherwise they get hoiked off the stage by an oversize comedy shepherd’s crook and banned from the venue until they can prove that they’ve extended their vocabulary a bit.

    an old style hand cranked telephone signalling magneto (the Indians still make them) wired to a DI box in such as way as to put the frame of the microphone up to 150V above earth (without sending the noise down the audio) when cranked could be a good way of training them, like the anti-barking collars for dogs used in some countries (admittedly with less robust animal rights).

    I dont mind a couple of comments made on the mic, but “spitting bars” can fuck off.

    We did a new year party predominantly drum and bass, and I was trying to sort out some sound and light kit just in front of the stage, when some kid called me over and started MC’ing in my ear…. all his spit hitting the side of my face…. I said to him we’re not putting MC’s on, and he responded “Well at least listen to my bars blue”….

    I just wanted to say to him “Fuck off you little twat, I dont really give a fuck about you or your bars, and definately dont want you gobbing in my fucking ear”…… I just said I was tired and wasnt in the mood and carried on with what I was meant to be doing, but serisously what fucking planet are some people from?
