Naughty, naughty. ‘i-o"s encyclopedia of the last decade declared the Wag in London “synonymous with nightclubblng in the 80s’, so it was

hardly surprising that the appearance

oi posters announcing the world

iamous club’s imminent visit to

1 Edinburgh generated considerable

: excitement in the city scene. However,

style aiicionados are in tor a big disappointment on 6 October. Forthere seems to have been a little ‘coniusion’ as to the true identity of those behind this venture. Will the real Wag Club please step iorward? ‘We categorically deny that we have any involvement with this at all,’ stated Louise Neel, a spokesperson tor the critically acclaimed Wardour Street club. ‘The Wag oi London has no connection whatsoever with any Edinburgh Wag Club. We object very strongly to these people using our name as a cheap publicity gimmick. '

Organisers oi the local event declared that the wording on the initial posters had been the result oi a misunderstanding with their printers, should actually have read ‘the happening Edinburgh Wag Club’, and promised that the oiiending items would be removed from public view.

The clubs pages at this magazine have received many strange things in theirtime. Letters written underthe influence of hallucinogenic substances, threats, bribes, oiiers, promises-we’ve had ’em all in spurious attempts to persuade us to publicise events. However, as yet we haven't succumbed to temptation until the latest from Schlitz, who obviously realise that the best way to bypass journalistic integrity is by means of the stomach. Last week the quiet industry oi our office was disturbed by the arrival oi a large iced cake, proclaiming in scarlet marzipan ‘lt‘s Tour Time'. After devouring said item, we discovered that the event in

question was their Sensation Perception Knowledge club tour of Scotland, which kicks oii at the Winter Gardens, Glasgow on 30 Sept and continues at The Lab, Glasgow on 5 Oct. Organised in conjunction with t—D magazine, the tourwill leature surreal club art created by local lad Steven Sleepman, a seamless blur oi beats irom The Shamen, Cold Cut, LED and Candy Flip amongst others, plus the turntable talents of uplront DJ’s Graeme Park, Colin Faver and homeboys Slam. Watch these pages ior lurther details and talk with the main protagonists as the tour conhnues.
