50-something Austrian lounge lizard Louie Austen will be joining Tyrant residents Craig Richards and Lee Burridge for their Xmas party at Fabric next week (Friday 12) to sing live at the East London basement club.

"Expect glamour, power and most of all a night you will never forget, never," Louie promised this week.

"People on the dancefloor will rock 'n' roll 'n' shake, smile and scream and yell, love and kiss, cry and laugh, you'll hear beats to dance to, a black voice coming out of a gringo and see me in a white suit."

Austen's latest renaissance came when he signed to uber cool Berlin label Kitty Yo last year and he's clearly hoping to make the most of his newfound credibility in cluband.

"My age outside is 57 but inside I'm 23 years old, it's a matter of energy and the will to learn everyday something new and never give up trying, never," he stressed.

"I want the most wonderful girls from London, back stage."
