I Delirium 7 at Rooftops (Secrets Lounge). llpm—late. £2.50. Okay. okay. so it's not gothic! With a playlist ranging from The Pixies to Front 242. let's just say traditional alternative.



._ k _

I Joy at the Sub Club. 1 1pm--5am.£3.50. Housey-housey in a sweaty. steamy atmosphere of serious dance and serious dancers. Not a place for the unco-ordinated. but great ifyou throw yourselfinto it. Elevate your mind. free your soul. get your T-shirt all smelly.

I The Lab at The Champion. 11.30—5am. £3.50 (£2.50 with pass). See panel.

I Radio City at the Mayfair (Cameo Suite). 10.30pm—3am. £2. Whetherit‘s moving with the times or jumping on the bandwagon. Radio City is certainly a hell ofa lot different from what it used to be: no longer purely 60s. they now cater to the Manchester posse and even play straight dance records like Chad Jackson. The towering temperatures and boorish bouncers are unfortunate minuses to an otherwise fine club. btit definitely worth a visit for surprise value.

I Rumble at Joe Paparazzi. 10pm—3.30am. £3 (£1 student). [Excellent mixture of rap. hip-house and indie crossover dance. and unlike many clubs we could name. the cavernous proportions ofJoe's mean that if you‘re choosy about when you dance. you can actually get through the night at a reasonable temperature -— I don‘t know about you. but I always consider this of vital importance when deciding where to go. Perhaps I‘m getting old.

I Shag at Fury Murrys. 11pm-5ant.£2.50. It's not so much the music they play in Shag that make it what it is. it's the people who go; unafraid to tapdancc badly during ‘Singing In The Rain‘ or pretend to play cricket during Soul Clap 69. My personal faves are the lovely couple who go regularly and have their own. highly personal. dance routines to The Housemartins. . . tacky but sweet. OTHERS

I Mickey Finn's at Tin Pan Alley.


I Atlantis at the Sub Club. llpm—5am. £5.

Upfront dance and obscure house for the ‘in‘ crowd. Entry requirements area soupeon of pretension. a smattering of style. a sharp haircut and bags of energy— they come to dance until their turtleneeks melt. and they don't mind paying a fiver every week. so it must have something.

I Burnout at Rooftops. llpm—late. £2.50. A mixed crowd and a mixed playlist. indie crossover. Mane rave and some glam pop. Playing live on the 15th are The Jerks see Rock. for more details.

I Detect at Fury Murrys. llpm—5am. £3. The Defecting regulars are a frighteningly straight-looking bunch at first sight. but you‘ll warm to them by the time you‘ve encountered them on the dancefloor. (iood. solid selection of dance music with the odd ecleticism like The Buzzcocks and The Undertones. I Divine at the Art School. llpm—2ain. £1.50. The early finish is a bit ofa bummer. but the familiar. though not necessarily tiresome. blend of60s psychedelia and 80s indie provides the atmosphere that the horrid Vic cafe. with its rather free interpretation of a dancefloor. doesn't. Plenty of space. not too busy. groovy sounds. uncomfy seats. beat girls. indie kids and hooded tops. that'll do nicely. thanks. I Heller Skelter at the .‘vlayfair. llpm—-3am. £1 .50. Recapture that authentic 60s seaside riot atmosphere as

' the city‘s mods and rockers fight tostay

upright on the dancefloor the size ofa Twister board. 60s rock. 60s influenced rock. 80s indie and thrash.

I UFO at The Choice. 11pm—4.30am. £5. Steven Sleepman. the man who sounds like a character from an old morality play. brings his mega-successful techno. house and rave machine to Choiceland. with [Ms Larz and Adrian. (let down. get on up. CtL’.

I Floral Riot Network 2. 10.30pm—4am. £2. Full ofindie kids flopping theirfringes to the likes ofJames. Stone Rosesand other current new wave faves. The playlist is moving steadily towards an up-to-date dance orientation. but still includes the odd classic from a few years back.

I Marley: Shady Lady's. 10.30pm—3am. £2.
