Peep Show, the generation-defining sitcom, might have come to its conclusion in 2015, but the legacy of its characters lives on. One of the series’ most enduring personalities was unquestionably Super Hans, Jeremy’s drug-guzzling, manipulative on-and-off musical collaborator. While there’s no shortage of reality-blurring turns we’d like to see from the show – a sales motivation session with Alan Johnson would certainly be one – Super Hans was always going to be the character which would best translate into gurning his way through the fourth wall into the club arena.
“But what sounds will Hans be dropping?” the club page hears you exclaim? Well, a bit of cursory internet research reveals that he’ll be spinning (in his words) “Big beats. Really big, fuck off beats. And some The Beatles. And Rolling Stones. And a tiny bit of Depeche Mode.” A heady mix, for sure. And while you probably won’t be coming away with any great musical revelations, you’ll certainly be wallowing in Facebook and Insta likes. You’ll be dining out on them forever if you manage to steal a picture with the man himself. Following the Swansea appearance early in March, Cardiff residents can get in on the Super Hans action on Easter weekend. More-ish indeed.
