The Backroom at Shady Ladies: Saturdays 10.30pm—3am. £2.

In a city where ‘alternative clubs‘ seem to open and close overnight— literally in one celebrated case. it‘s a minor miracle thatthe Backroom has hung on gamely tor so long.

Located in Shady Ladies— the bottom or the cavernous old Place building. the club is diminutive but possesses passages where you can shelter from the burning sounds and engage in intimate conversation.

Previously the Backroom had a reputation tor being ‘cold‘. typilied by the tale ot one tipsy reveller at the club‘s New Year party who. on wishing bystanders the season‘s compliments. was greeted by a collection ot icy stares and sneering 'Do I know you?‘ expressions.

However. due to the slow death of our old triend Goth. the atmosphere has brightened considerably. Spotty adolescents no longer teel a pressing need to adopt a more-evil-than-thou pose and amiable banter with strangers is now quite possible. The music has improved too. Nights oi interminable ‘industrial' 12in singles


Well worth a visit then it you don't crave endless funk or Ford Cortina-type tun. But be warned —— as its a Saturday night alcohol pours item the very sky. Your reporter‘s Choice? Red Stripe chased by Blue Label Vodka please. (Andy Crabb)

As per usual. Glasgow‘s clubs have been moving around with amazing regularity. One olthe clubs that has been tollowing this trend in recent months. ‘Krack', is at it again! It has moved three times in the space ot a year and this time back to Fury Murrys to replace the unsuccessful Gun Club.

Two new laces on the club scene. Marc Cocozza and Darren Statt, have opened a club on Wednesday nights at Fury Murrys, called ‘Corruption‘. This could prove a real alternative to the popular ‘Jeans and T‘shirt‘ at the Cotton Club.

Daddy Warbucks has recently been returbished, and to go with the new image it has a new name, Madisons! I bet it took a long time to think that one up! Anyway, 46 West is still upstairs and it hasthe only clubthat has been confirmed, ‘Texas Fever‘ on a Friday night. Expect clubs to be contirmed at both venues inthe nearluture though. (Colin Steven)
