2Klub Newsletter 2004: February (2)
Review: Release @ The Nightingale, Birmingham, Sunday 8th. Feb. 2004 Opening Party @ The Nightingale.

Release, international Super-star DJ and son of the Midlands Andy Farley's new club night in Birmingham, re-opened this last Sunday, and was attended by over three hundred happy clubbers curious to know what the maestro of hard dance and his colleagues had in store for them. They were not disappointed, though some were a bit surprised. Apparently overheard in the loos two girls were noted to comment: "I don't know any of the tunes but they REALLY make you want to dance".

Sarah G. started the night with Tribal, Farley then played an awesome uplifting set which reminded me of Trade, and Si Griffiths rounded off the night with Techno.

This week the club will be releasing a new Release triple CD mixed by the club's residents, (including Andy Farley of course), which it's making available to members for free, while stocks last, and Tim Clewes will be the club's special guest. The club has also brought its opening and closing time forward by an hour due to popular demand, (now 8pm to 2am).

This is the most interesting new development both musically and in terms of atmosphere to hit the Midlands in a long time, and is well worth experiencing. Book Monday off work if you have to!

FRANTIC, Camden Palace, London
We have been told that the Camden Palace is likely to stop trading as a club at the end of February and as a result we sadly announce what is likely to be our last parties at the Palace.

Our first ever party at Camden Palace was back in April 1999 when the queue stretched from the front doors round the block and back again with 2000 people already inside and 1500 desperately trying to buy tickets.

Since then Camden Palace has turned into our spiritual home with over 70 events being held during the Daytime, Nighttime,Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays!

We have had some immense parties and some special memories at our 2nd home and too many to mention but some that have stuck in our mind have been the following:

*Laboratory: A party dedicated to Lab 4!
*The 1st ever Timeless!
*The 4th
Birthday Celebrations!
*Moving the decks from the booth and onto the stage.
*Tidy vs. Nukleuz!

We are holding 2 last parties so we can play the biggest range of our favourite DJs possible and because we know that not everybody will be able to make the first party in January. Come and say goodbye to the Palace at the last ever Frantic parties? at the legendary venue!


Our last ever event at Camden Palace?

It's only fitting that our love affair with Camden Palace finishes with the Frantic Valentines Ball. Frantic are pulling together 6 of our favourite DJs, 3 Boys and 3 Girls to go head to head to claim the Valentines Ball Crown for one last time at Camden Palace?

Lisa Pin-Up / Ed Real b2b *Surprise Guest* / Donna Birt / Guffy / Lucy Fur / Danny Gilligan / The *Ting* & many more!

Tickets for both these events are priced at: £10 Members £12 Non Members

The £10 paying guest list for the event is now open. As these are our last parties at Camden Palace the guest list will fill up very quickly. We STRONGLY advise you to secure your places as soon as possible.

For more information visit www.franticuk.com or call the Frantic HQ on 07949 618035 / info@franticuk.com
