I Radio City at the Mayfair (Catneo Suite). 10.30pm- 3atn. £2. Whetherit's mos ing with the times or jumping on the bandwagon. Radio City is certainly a hell of a lot different from what it used tobe: no longer purely h0s. they now cater tothe Manchester posse and exert play straight dance records like Chad Jackson. The towering temperatttres and hoorish houncers are unfortunate minuses to an otherwise fine cltth. htit definitely worth a \ istt lot surprise \alue.

Alt. close your eyes and you could almost he in the good old QM . . . solidindie layes. htit to he honest. if I hear ‘1 Wanna Be Your Dog' again. 1‘” start howling myself. The odd new release would be welcomed. and the Mancunian emphasis touted at the start seems to base fallen away a hit. lloweycr. that could all change soon. with the tantalising line-upofgigs they have coming up; nothing this week though.
I Club Hacienda l 1.30pm—7am. £5. One wonders if Club 1 l are getting away with their somewhat cheeky use of Fae 51 's name due to the more pressing problems facing the Mane mafia. lt'sacurious choice since the (ilasgow clttb concentrates on house and techno and is Mexican themed rather than a huge industrial warehouse; it also doesn't (yet) have the all-important respect. kudos and unmissability factor. btit it's early days. Saturday nights feature an Under-18s disco from 7pm—1 lptn for hip little bruyyers (£3. or £2 with a ticket) and live PAs for oldsters later on.

6 I Club With No Name at Rooftops.
11pm—late. £2. So many weird and wonderful suggestions have been received for names for this new rock club that organiser James Flytc has decided to rotate them every few weeks. just to be difficult. Favourite thus far is the entry from a young lad called Cliffie. who modestly proposed calling it Cliffie's Place. Anything else they could do for you. sir? Co-ordinate the colour scheme with your outfit. perhaps?
I Hypnotonic Soundtrack at Fury Murrys. £2. The Robert llalperns ofclubland slip in the odd obscure tradt from the likesof Parliament. Paris Angels. Paradise X. Kitchens O.D.. Dream Frequency or Audio One. just to keep thingsintcresting among the more usual 808 State'Carpets/De La/Mondays: (.‘harlatans/Roses numbers. lndietcchnohiphop says the ﬂyer: sounds good to me.
I The Power at the Sub Club. 11pm—3.30am. £2. Sunday‘s not traditionally a big night for clubs and hence The Power is not quite as busy as other Subs. It's a bit of a hidden gem though. mixing reggae and ska into the usual dance inferno. and well—worth missing ‘1 lighway' for. Mind you. so would defrosting your fridge.
I Sherbet Asylum at The Talk ()fThe Town. l0pm—3am. £2. This venue has undergone a bewildering series of aliases — the most recent being Peggy Sue‘s — bttt strangely enough. it always seems to feature a club playing indie-kid popand psychedelia; remember The Love Club'.’ White mascara and lollipops are de rigour.
