CLUB INFO AND REVIEWS
Tidy Weekender4

by Bukey

(Those who haven't been on the TWs may not know that Tidy require one person to be responsible for booking a chalet and the tickets for the other people staying there. This person is know as the "Principal Booker". Jonathan)

The excitement had been building for weeks, and like a kid on Christmas Eve I wanted it to be 12 hours later. It was 1am in the morning, Friday October 10th. The first day of Tidy Weekender 4. I was restless, but decided I really should retire to bed - the weekend ahead I knew would hold little opportunity for sleep.

This was my first Tidy Weekender - I'd wanted to go to others in the past, but for various reasons had always missed the boat. I'd endured the boasts, gloats and almost legendary stories told with such enthusiasm by friends of previous Weekenders. This, however, was to be my chance to experience the magic that Tidy create at Pontin's in Prestatyn (Wales) - the home of Weekenders.

After a relatively painless train journey from Birmingham New Street, taking less than two hours and just one change, a friend and I arrived at Prestatyn train station at just before 3pm on the Friday afternoon. We had to wait for the principal booker to arrive, as he had our tickets, without which we couldn't get on site. We headed for the nearest pub, Offas Tavern, next to the station.

We enjoyed several drinks before calling our principal booker. He was going to be two to three hours still as he was still somewhere on the M6. He'd actually left his house somewhere around 10am, and wasn't having the best of journeys. Pretty quickly, we'd started to amass quite a crowd in the pub - another friend had arrived and was waiting for her principal booker (who as it turned out was sitting in the car next to our booker), a few randoms, and a few more friends from around the country. We were starting to have a little party, but were all itching to get into the event.

This was our first lesson - try to get your tickets off the principal booker ahead of the event. We were left in part frustrated because we wanted to be onsite, but had to wait. Although our principal booker had planned to arrive at the same time as us, such things rarely go to plan. If you have your ticket then you can at least get onsite, though you won't be able to get into your chalet as that requires the principal booker to book-in. But you can start to party, and dump your bags in friends chalets if you wish.

Once our principal booker arrived, it was a two minute taxi ride costing just three pounds from the train station to Pontin's. Our ID was checked, and we were randomly picked out for security checks on our bags. All was handled quickly, professionally and painlessly. After that, it was a case of booking in - as individuals we simply queued for a few minutes and exchanged our tickets for a typical Tidy-style neck band and laminate. The laminates contained all the info you could want on the weekend - mainly maps and line-ups. The principal bookers had to queue twice - once for their laminates but also once for the chalet keys. Again, this was a quick and efficient service.

I dumped my bags and then was off - I'd promised to pop around to see a few mates. Despite the map, it was difficult to navigate the site with the chalets in the dark. Numbers on the map were not easy to read being so small. On several occasions throughout the first night I found myself wandering around seemingly lost. Eventually the site layout became understandable, but by that time it was closer to Monday than it was to Friday.

Finally, it was time for the opening party, walking in to the opening set of Steve Hill. He was playing hard, and he was playing loud, but I'd definitely put what I heard of his set on the hard trancier side of things. There were three arenas, the main arena, a "Bounce is Back" arena and a funky room. All three arenas offered full world-class line-ups - Scot Project, the Tidy Boys, Maddox, Ingo, Lisa Pin Up and the Trophy Twins to name but a few.

One thing that Tidy never cut corners on is production. From the ceiling decorations to the light rigs to the stage furnishings and props. As well as putting on a party, they always put on a show. The main arena was covered in cardboard boxes, and two people-sized crates. At midnight, with a few fireworks, Fluffy Amo and Cyber Andy exploded from these people-sized crates into the festivities, much to the approval of everyone present. The Tidy Boys had arrived, and were ready to perform their opening set.

The night finished at a relatively early 5am, as everyone was kicked out of the main complex. From here, we all went back to chalets for afterparties. This was a very, very pleasant aspect of the Weekender for me as I got to hear many DJs - good, bad, ugly and excellent. The whole spectrum from shockingly bad bedroom DJs just starting out right up to those who play out regularly at smaller nights. A complete range of styles, also, from funky through to hard house, to trance through to techno. I managed to visit several chalets and bump into friends old and new. The parties carried on through until the middle of the afternoon, when it was time to go and see the special guests of the Weekender.

Tidy had arranged a treat for us all in the form of the special guests. Bungle, George and Zippy of Rainbow fame. They were to perform a stage show of the "Play Your Cards Right" television programme. Four collared Weekender-goers were called up on stage and subjected to poor-taste jokes, humiliation and YMCA dancing to win prizes such as a can of Redbull. It was great fun to watch, and trying to explain it afterwards left many people believing that I'd been on too many narcotics. So many people were very, very keen to shake hands and have their photos taken with the puppets from our childhoods.

After the show was over, there were just a few hours to catch kip, wander around more chalets or listen to friends mix before it was time to get going again. Saturday's entertainment saw the Bounce arena replaced by a Vicious Circle hosted event, and the funky room had morphed into a hardcore room. The main arena had some great offerings from GRH and Shan before Anne Savage came on. Instead of getting Anne Savage, as was expected, the Tidy Boys and Lisa Lashes also turned up and performed a surprise Tidy Boys vs. Tidy Girls set.

Meanwhile, in the Vicious Circle arena, Paul Glazby had played a very different warm up set. Rather than being the hard and filthy set that I'm used to from Glazby, he played a very techie set, and one that got talked about very positively for the rest of the weekend. Andy Farley played one of the best sets I'd heard in a long, long time - for me, it was the set of the weekend. He kept me returning to the room and to the dancefloor, and I just couldn't keep still through the whole of it. Karim failed to show, which he's seeming to do quite regularly for events outside of London. This left a gap for the closing set of the VC arena, into which Ben Stevens stepped. I'd never heard Ben play before, but I'll definitely be looking out for him again. Dropping a mixture of classics as well as newer tunes, he'd got everyone stomping mentally on the dance floor. At the very end of his set, we were all hurting and ready to stop, but we couldn't. As his encore tune came on, we were ready to collapse, but we had to keep stomping.

Back in the main arena, Eddie Halliwell was silencing his critics once and for all. He was putting on a show like no other. I've found that people either love him, or they hate him. There seems to be nothing in between. However, even his staunchest critics were asking, "When did Eddie get good?" He was playing an amazing set and had captured the spirit of the Weekender to the point that they let him play on well past the 5 o'clock kick-out time. At 5:15 someone from Tidy got on the mic and even said that they knew it was going to get them into trouble, but Eddie could play on... And he did until about 5:40.

Once more it was back to afterparties. Some people were ready to sleep, others of us carried on doing the rounds, stomping, listening and partying. One of the chalets had a 10k sound system, and had setup an outside afterclub in their "square" of chalets. Others had small sound systems to just fill their own chalet. Wherever you went, you were treated with a pleasant variety of hard dance tastes, volumes and clubbers.

Sunday afternoon pretty quickly rolled around, and the Tidy Boys held a "Baddiel and Skinner: Unplanned" rip-off, aptly named "Tidy Boys: Unplanned". Despite running late, and having to queue for well over an hour just to get into the arena in which the show was being held, this is one of the highlights of the whole Weekender. The Tidy Boys were on couches on a stage, ready to be questioned about anything including drugs, sex, music and whatever else we wanted to quiz them on. They were brutally honest in their answers, and they even asked questions back to discover what we, the clubbers, wanted and expected from Tidy. They held their hands up about the queues at Magna7 in September. They told us what they'd done to improve the situation for New Years Eve. They asked us what we felt of Judge Jules appearing on recent line-ups, and scrapped the chance that JJ had of playing for Tidy again. They let us know their thoughts on drugs such as GHB in clubland. They did what so, so many promoters fail to do - interact with their clubbers, get the feedback and be honest with them. So many people are just interested in taking our money these days - and whilst Tidy events aren't the cheapest, I certainly feel valued by them, and that their events are value for money.

The Sunday evening's clubbing pleasure saw a Hard as Hell arena and a National Anthems arena. The hard arena saw the likes of Guffy, K-90, Tara Reynolds, BK and Glazby playing dirty, playing hard and getting us stomp away like never before. Meanwhile, the anthems arena had Ed Real, Rob Tissera and Jez and Charlie banging out some quality classics and bringing back memories.

The atmosphere in the complex was different. Everyone was knackered, but still so up for it. No-one wanted the weekend to end, although we knew it was coming - never-the-less grins spread across all of our faces. The night finished at a much earlier 2am, but we were still adamant to squeeze the life out of every last minute.

Everyone danced and stomped through the classics and the dirty, hard tunes. Glazby played another absolutely amazing set, for many this was the set of the weekend. For me, it was a very, very close second behind Mr. Farley's offering the night before. The end of the night arrived far too quickly and after the announcements from Tidy at the end of the night, the cheers to the Tidy, Pontin's and Security staff that had worked so hard both before and during the Weekender, Glazby let the customary "Kick It" drop which saw everyone go mental before leaving for the last afterparties of the weekend.

I did the rounds visiting others before a few of us headed back to our chalet. A friend played the first set I'd ever heard him mix, and it really was a pleasant surprise. Two of us listened and watched on, and a few hours later I drifted off to sleep. Happy, content and amazed at what an amazing weekend I'd had. This was my first Tidy Weekender, but it certainly won't be my last. See you all at Tidy Weekender number 5!

Trade Events.

THE ANNIVERSARY A Night of Pure Malice Saturday 26th October 2003 ‘Fasten your seatbelts kids it’s gonna be a bumpy night’ (they actually mean the early morning of Sunday 26th. October, Jonathan)

Trade returns to its birthplace at Turnmills, London, for yet another spectacular birthday party. This year’s event, ‘The Anniversary’ is a homage to the classic Bette Davis film and also marks the one year anniversary since Trade ceased trading as a weekly club and Laurence Malice launched Egg which has taken clubbing to the next level. This year Trade has thrown some of the most talked about parties in club land and continues to push the boundaries and evolve with the times. This legendary club has gone from strength to strength, still in the wake of the hugely successful Tony De Vit Tribute, this event is sure to sell out fast!

Trade is the ultimate clubbing experience, the original all night bender. Started thirteen years ago by club mogul Laurence Malice, the club has evolved into something far bigger. Trade is a global brand, still exported throughout the world.

The club itself has enticed literally hundreds of thousands of people into its throbbing vortex of sound, light, performance, visuals and of course people. Pop stars mix with builders, city professionals with models, and doctors with actors. It is a place, which quite simply unites everyone!

Trade is famous for many things, but probably the most renowned element is of course the music policy - pumping, underground, cutting edge dance music, supplied by its Fierce Rulin' Residents. This term is a brand in itself and is known throughout the world. International DJs such as Tall Paul, Fergie and the late Tony de Vit all came from the Trade stable, a place where DJs cut their teeth!

Trade is proud to list the following DJ maestros as its Anniversary residents spinning over Turnmills 3 dancefloors: Malcolm Duffy, Gonzalo, Pete Wardman, BK, Andy Farley, EJ Doubell, Tom McMillan, Tyrone, Guy Williams, Peter Ward and Fat Tony.

Trade’s anniversary promises to be a night to remember.

Online q jump tickets available from www.tradeuk.net Also available from Trax, Clone Zone, Prowler Soho, Prowler Kings X, The Edge, The Box & Escape. £15 Members £20 Guests. 4am til Super late. Turnmills 63b Clerkenwell Rd London EC1
