1992 at 46 WEST
It doesn't take a great entrepreneur to tigure out that the key to success is Ilnding a gap in the market. Until January, there was a large gap for a club which could promote the recent fusion between Indie noise and dance credibility. The name at our saviour? 1992 (with the brilliant subtitle of Head Damage!)
Not surprisingly, It has been extremely popular, and DJ Keith says this Is simply because they play great dance music. None at your mainstream stuli that ‘trendy' clubs play though, but New Beat, Electro, Industrial, Dub— new altematlve music which is still too radical to be accepted by ‘lndie pop’ discos.
It's good to see 46 West open again. it provides an almost pertect venue lor a club of this nature - relatively small
without losing any at the atmosphere necessary tor the music. It’s only fault is with the rather inadequate sound system which possibly could be improved.
1992's tuture looks quite rosy at the moment, especially it their plan to book live bands bears irult.
We shall see. (Colin Steven)
