2Klub Newsletter 2003: June

Hi F-f-f-olks,

Dashing off to Sheffield tomorrow, and wanted to get this off to you now as there are some interesting events coming up I thought you might be interested in.

Tony de Vit

2nd. July marks the fifth anniversary of his death. Coincidentally, The Tidy Boys are releasing an album of his tracks and remixes and holding a launch party at The Nightingale on Sunday, 29 June. Here's what they say:

"TDV - Are you all ready? Launch Party and fundraiser at Nightingale, Birmingham. 4pm till midnight - Tickets £10 + bf.

To coincide with the release of the TDV album on Tidy Trax, the label is holding a launch party to raise money for charity with a throbbing line up guaranteed to fill the 2000 capacity club it's being held in.

The 100% confirmed line up is; Lisa Lashes, Anne Savage, Tidy Boys, Ian M, Andy Farley, BK, Chris C, Steve Thomas, Lee Haslam, Pants and Corset, Johnny Dangerous along with a live PA by SJ and Baby Doc who will be performing the Tony De Vit favourite, 'Fever'. All of these people and the venue had a special link to Tony.

(Actually, the current venue itself had no link to the man, as at the time of his death The Nightingale was located on Thorpe Street, Jonathan)

The event will be held at the venue which gave Tony his first residency - The Nightingale in Birmingham on Sunday 29th June from 4pm till Midnight.

Advance tickets on sale now costing £10 plus b/f. All profits from the door will be going to the TDV trust. All the DJs playing have offered their services for free. For more information keep checking tidy.com.”

Release date for album: 07.07.03. The suitabliltiy fo holding this event at The Nightingale is somewhat questionable as though it's true that The Nightingale gave Tony de Vit a residency, I have been told repeatedly by various people around at the time that The 'gale also sacked him once he started to play his newer style of hard dance music. I am sure the irony of the choice of this location will be lost on only a very few neophytes.

Then fly straight back for something different, Cyberdog III on The Thekla in Bristol on Friday 20th. June. The Thekla is a boat, (which I think is permanently moored).

Checkout Inukshuk at The Sanctuary this Saturday 21st. June. A wide variety of music in its numerous rooms, with Techno and DJ Welly, "the world's youngest dj", on in the main room. Cost is only a £5 donation and all profits go to the charity ChildLine. Info on Inukshuk on the 2Klub site.

The Emporium in Coalville is host to Storm on 27th June with a blast of a line-up including Ian M, and the following Friday 4th. July, they host Religion, a touring event playing some hard sounds and including popular Brum/Flashback favourite Mark E G. Note there's no info on the website about either of these. If you you want to send me a review of Storm or Religion based on what you know and have experienced at either please do!

Sundissential Gossip

Numbers falling and rumours start circulating of a split between the promoters... the latest story is a hoot... and would certainly bring a smile to many an insider's lips if true, (and no, I'm not going to repeat it). Suffice it to say that it is denied by my reliable sources.


"I am appealing...." .....no ... that's not right... erm... er... let me rephrase that.......... "Help!" ... nope.... that strikes a chord of desperation.... how about... "send me your contribution and I'll find somewhere for it. If you've got an interesting history of clubland or a perspective on a club current or past, let's hear it." Yes, that'll do.

That's all f-f-f-olks.

Safe clubbing,
