"I ain't playing no commercial shit!: watch house legend Kerri Chandler's brilliant / barmy pre-set rant in Paris

They say the key to a good speech is knowing when to stop. Nobody, however, told that to US house veteran Kerri Chandler .

Playing at DJ Deep’s Legends reunion party at Paris’ Rex Club this Sunday gone, Chandler decided to make a speech before performing. The full thing – which lasts almost five minutes, with no music – can be viewed in full below [via Mixmag], but the long and short of it as as follows:

– Kerri Chandler doesn’t play commercial shit
– If you want commercial shit, then get the fuck out
– In fact, if you want commercial shit, Kerri Chandler will pay you right now to get the fuck out
– He will pay you via cheque
– Get the fuck out

God bless Kerri, but there’s definitely an element of a dad who’s had one drink too many here, and the applause from the crowd gets more muted with every request for approval. But we guess when you’ve contributed to a sound as much as Chandler has, you can get away with most stuff. Just ask A Guy Called Gerald.
