Dance music producer and DJ Alan Braxe, an important figure in French electronic music who has worked with everyone from Bjork, Britney Spears, and Beyonce, as well as releasing a number of his own dance hits is outraged at a nightclub in San Francisco that has accused him of pissing all over the stage at a gig last week.

The incident is just the latest in a long history of the French pissing on things, such as Gerard Depardieu who got hauled off a flight a few months ago for pissing in the aisle of a packed plane much to the disgust of his fellow passengers.

Posting on the nightclubs website, the owner  wrote to fans “Turns out that our headlining DJ last night, Alan Braxe, has a bladder control problem. That’s the generous explanation for why he decided, in the middle of his DJ set, to turn around and piss on our back-wall curtain instead of using the restroom which is twenty feet away.”

He continued “After his set, when we had tossed him out, he was aghast that we chose not to let him back in. We said that we’d be happy to let him in if he paid us what it was going to cost to have the curtain cleaned. He declined. Also he threatened to sue us. “For what?” I inquired. “Because I wouldn’t come out and talk to him,” Barry tells me. Well, good luck with that.”

Alan Braxe’s representative was quick to dismiss the charges as a ‘complete fabrication’ and a ‘personal attack’ saying “Alain in no way urinated on any curtain or wall”.

Now the DJ himself has come out in an effort the counter the nightclubs attack saying “I did not and would not ever urinate on or damage a venue’s or anybody else’s property. The accusation of a “bladder problem” is also false, and offensive!”

He continued “These lies have been fabricated, twisted and spread by somebody at the venue in order to generate extra interest in that space, in what appears to be a very inappropriate PR stunt. This personal attack on my nature and artistic image is distasteful, hurtful and it is something that I will be taking very seriously.”

“Apart from this unpleasant gossip, I really enjoyed having the opportunity to play again in the U.S. and Canada and want to sincerely thank everybody who came to the shows and made them such fun and successful nights.”

But the owner of the nightclub is unrepentant and standing by his version of events saying “So here’s a guy who pisses on my stage, in a totally non-metaphorical way, and then calls me a liar. This is my house. When I invite someone into my house and they treat it with so little respect — such as literally treating my stage as a toilet — I’m going to call them on it.”

All is not lost for the venue however, multiple comments on the original post have asked the venue to quote them how much it would cost to buy the curtain stained with French DJ juice. The gift would be ‘for a friend’ of course.
