T-Bone. the Harlem has the unique distinction, in Edinburgh at least. of having two outputs of sound on ditterent levels at the venue, and a Mexican-based calé supplying reasonably-priced tuck.
The main club on ground level plays modern dance to the majority of the comparatively oldercrowd, supplemented by backdrops ol 8mm films and slides. The erlect gives the church hall-ish shape a decidedly more appealing leel. Upstairs in the WickWack Club room, variety is more the spice. with the DJs plundering Fopp Records—theirsounds sponsors-tor Charley 8&8 and Soul, C&W right through to James Hendrix. So don't be put oil it you're a bit lost by the playlist, because there‘s more to it than that.
In the future, David tells us, cash has been set aside for a big PA event with someone really, really famous, although rumours of a Hendrix comeback gig are strongly denied. (Stuart Haiker)
