New Review for Smash 'n' Grab, Bristol.
Update to Twist and Suction pages.
FF:Unloaded - The Glasshouse have stated that no further FF:Reloaded events are scheduled there.



Sad news reached me recently about Dassos, club promoter of the OI skinhead events held in London, Manchester and Birmingham over the past few years. He has been hospitalised for the past eight months, during many of which he has been in a coma, following an insulin overdose. He can be contacted by post through friends, (write to 24 Helmshore Walk, Manchester M13 9TH) who will ensure that all letters are passed to him. If people would like to visit him, they can contact Jeremy on 07952 952081 who can pass on the hospital details. I am told it would mean a lot to him to hear from people.



1. Yet more evidence of decline in the dance music market comes from a story I heard from Gavin who's been working out in Ibiza this summer. He says that it is quiet this year and that the clubs and bars there are having the worst summer for a long time.

2. Sundissential to re-launch Funkissential, (see forthcoming events below). Having been developing their Funkisential brand, Sundissential is preparing a re-launch in Leeds, the traditional home of their hardest dance events, of a club event playing something a bit gentler/funkier. Having reached the monotonous ferocity of a pneumatic drill, it looks like hard house has now dug itself all the way back underground, where it may well end up being buried. Come back Northern Soul, all is forgiven!



Having started the ball rolling in collecting the history of some influential clubs long closed but fondly remembered with Tin Tin's, in Birmingham, (IanM's story is now up on the Tin Tin's page by the way), another club of a similar influential and somewhat legendary ilk, is Sherbet. This ran in London, at The Soundshaft, on Sunday afternoons, and was set up by DJing wizard, Pete Wardman, in the mid-1990s (?). I believe the club ran for something like a year or two, and closed around the time that DTPM got started at The End. It was mixed, had a loyal following and a great atmosphere I understand. So much so in fact that people continued the party with "Family", after it closed (see the 2Klub website for info on Family). Sherbet issued at least one CD, mixed by PW, copies of which must still be around.

So here goes again: Got any info. memories, stories, pics. music on or from Sherbet? Let me have 'em and we'll try to create a Sherbet page.



"Our CDs are mixed by DJs not computers", says MixMag proudly, possibly having a dig at some CD producers who select tarcks, mix using a computer and slap a DJ's name on the front. Yeah, O.K. MixMag, but does the DJ choose the tracks? The latest issue of MixMag features a new freebie CD mixed by Eddie Halliwell. This follows on from the first of a few months ago, "Bosch", which Eddie was not that pleased with, as, of the tracks which were used, only four were ones he had chosen. He couldn't get permission from the license-holders to use the others he wanted and the ones which replaced them were not his choice. This new freebie, "next level Bosch", might be MixMag's way of making up for that first fiasco.



Next newsletter will be around mid-September, after I get back from Ibiza. I'll miss the Magna 7 event in Sheffield and lots of others, so PLEASE continue to send your reviews and comments to me to put into the next newsletter or on the website.



If you can, catch 2Klub DJ Chris G at the Nightingale, Birmingham this Bank Holiday Saturday night/Sunday morning (23rd/24th) 4 til 6 in the HOM (House of Music) room on the top floor, playing Sharp Boys-style pumping house.


Twist, London have the incredible EJ Doubell guesting this weekend, Sunday 24th. August and are slotting an extra date in for the Bank Hol Monday 25th. August, with Rachel Auburn , Dave Cross, Peter Ward and Danny Gilligan in room1 and, after her recent success there, Mrs. Wood, returning for a bank holiday treat!


SIN:ERGY 12hr All-Nighter (10pm-10am) this Saturday 2 Rooms + Chillout Zone, 12 Hours, 12 DJ's

YOU DO NOT NEED A EUROPRIDE MARDIGRAS WRISTBAND! You won't need a wristband to enter Sin:ergy on Saturday night for the 12hr all-nighter as our venue (Mutz Nutz) is on Princess Street, Manchester and NOT within the Europride Events Zone.

WHAT ABOUT PARKING? As it's the Europride BankHoliday weekend there is a massive event in town on Saturday and Sunday along Canal Street/Bloom Street, and as such parking right in the city centre will be at a premium. We suggest that you park the other side of Piccadilly Gardens (e.g off Oldham St), or one of the streets off Oxford Rd/The Mancunian Way, and walk the last few hundred yards to Mutz Nutz.

CAN YOU GET IN ANY TIME BETWEEN 10pm & 10am? When you buy an advance ticket you will have reserved entry anytime whilst Sin:ergy is open. You will not however not be able to leave and re-enter the venue without surrendering your ticket. A ticket is the only way to ensure entry (if you prefer to pay on the door we suggest you arrive b4 midnight). If there is spare capacity we will of course be happy to welcome people throughout the night up until 7am, e.g. if you want to come to to us after another event (e.g. Uni-Challenge, which has now cancelled it's after-party event at The Ritz incidentally). N.B. There is no guestlist in operation, if you require special entry please email jeremy@clubsinergy.com

SUNDAY 24TH August 2003
1500 - LATE!

We touch down at the mothership once again on the 24th August for our 3rd annual Bank Holiday Sunday special. We've gone extreme with our main room line-up as we welcome not only Ian M and Karim, but the legendary Ting from Cyberdog to battle it out on the decks alongside myself, BK and Danny. Wear a hardhat! I played alongside Ting in Glastonbury and she DJed in a big blue ballgown and led the 3000 ravers in a high speed can can to the strains of Paul Glazby 'Motherf*cker'!!! Seeing is believing and I've certainly never seen anyone go as crazy as that behind the decks! The guys behind GodsKitchen's ultra funky second room touch down with the Ignitions in Bar Riot! Gonna be sexy that's for sure!



RIOT! V's WILDCHILD SUNDAY 24th AUGUST 2003 2200 - 8:00am Heaven - London

This year we wanted to go that extra mile and offer you all the chance to continue the dance until the following morning so we've hooked up with the excellent Wildchild crew to do just that!

Riot! at The End will finish at 10pm and then we will all make the short stroll across Covent Garden and down to Charing Cross to take over the second room at Heaven until a staggering 8am the next day!

Everyone who comes to Riot! will get a special discount pass which will allow them to jump the queue and get in for cheap! We have 1000 passes to giveaway so have no fear, you'll all get one as you go into Riot! at The End.

Check this line-up: Lashes, Glazby, BK, Real, Tissera, Reynolds and Freeland will be doing the damage on the hard tip! Prepare yourselves...

And finally.... a plea for the poor old apostrophe, so widely abused by club promoters. "DJ's" is so widely mis-used to mean more than one DJ that it's becoming standard. Correct is "DJs". "DJ's" (when DJ is used as a noun) means belonging to the DJ, as in "The DJ's set was wicked". More than one DJ? Move the apostrophe past the letter "s". As in "Those DJs' sets were crap".

Will now shuffle off back under the rock from which I emerged.
