I Detect at Fury Murrys. 11pm-3.30am. £3. Student sounds at Furys on Saturdays. This doesn‘t say much for students‘ taste in music. Obvious fodder you‘d rather forget about, funky 705 sounds and chart music every week. Those who go do seem to enjoy themselves though.

Another popular Wednesday night club playing dance, but of a more commercial nature than Expansions & Hardcore (and not so elitist).
I Psychotic Reaction at the Mayfair. 10—3.30am. £1 .50. Typical Mayfair club, so that means teen trash, 605 psychedelia, psycho pop, garage punk and, just to be slightly different, Atlantic/Stax soul. Worth supporting though.

I Blackmarket at the Sub Club. 11pm-3.30am. £2. My favourite of the Slam Crew’s three nights at the Sub isJoy, but if the music at Blackmarket doesn‘t quite reach the high standards of Fridays it makes up for it in atmosphere and mobility (ie it isn‘t quite so busy).
I Terra Hera at the Mayfair. 11pm—3am. £2. Still running despite my reservations about the venue, and still attracting the most diverse crowd in the city. Great music to dance to—Latin, Reggae,

I U.F.O The Venue 12pm—4am. £2.00. Covering contemporary dance music across the board, from On-U sounds to Mancunian ravers The Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses, occasionally crossing into House and Techno. Worth checking out if you are into the more alternative end of dance clubs.
I Marley: Shady Lady‘s 10.30pm—3am. £2. Living up to its name the club plays mostly MOR reggae to a mostly older crowd. So what did you expect?
I Spanish Harlem Wilkie House. One of the busiest clubs springs back after their spot of bother. 015 Colin David and Yogi share the floor with guest DJs from all over Britain. Professional and lively — but for how much longer?
