thanx dave and matt,great to see you both...


wow...to be honest wasnt expecting that!....despite quite a few from the sw going upto keele we still got 130 in last nite,yes about 15 of those were in a 50th birthday group of one of johns friends but would have still been slightly up on last month when i was expectin about 90...lots of other new faces and some we hadnt seen for a while


ofcourse as long as the bills get paid numbers are not important..what was the nite like?..a few people said one of the best!...


half hour sets for all the djs with dr picckles and dave alternating between 11 and 1am...a mix of rnb,northern and funk but almost all uptempo ...great to see a busy floor to dave,johns and chris' second set of funky things..big tunes at rare nites/rooms but unknown to a lot of the gogo crowd but they loved em...spoke to a 22 year old outside who said shed never been before,didnt know what was being played but loved it and would be back,even said it was the best nite at a club shed had,no attitudes,egos or pissed people tryin to pull you....think this could be the way the scene will attract youngsters


john finished with the normal last 10 minutes of ska taking us to five past two with still about 30 people dancing and shouting for one more..sadly not but we have applied for a 3am license for our june nit which the landlords say shuldnt be a problem..that nite we have GREG BELSON from L.A (last time he played we had 190 in,our best attendance) and  MARC FOREST from berlin!!...before that though we have DES PARKER and MACE down next month!!


so a big thanx to our great guest djs dave and chris and to everyone who came and danced their socks off especially those who travelled from birmingham,leicester,london,exeter,wellington,taunton,weston,warminster,trowbridge,bradford on avon,south wales and the south coast


hope to see you next month a little less funk but some awesome rnb and northern!


my playlist will be up in that section in a bit
