I Crash at the Cotton Club. 11pm-3.30am. £4 (£3 with ticket.£2 before midnight). Unpretentious (apart from some ofthe punters). long-running and well-respected indie crossover/dance/groove night with a loyal crowd.

I icon at the Sub Club. 11pm—3.30am. £3.50. Replacingtheir long-runningand highly successful Joy. icon is the brave new hope for the Slam crew which they‘re hoping will make a name for itselfwith a slightly more ‘disco‘-based house style. but don‘t worry.

R&B. northern soul. indie and 90s dance — that only leaves classical. reggae. calypso. heavy metal and rockabilly. doesn‘t it'.’ Maybe next time I Radio City at the Mayfair (Cameo Suite). l0pm—2.30am. £2. Sixties rock merging surprisingly well with 90s rave. with the odd dance record thrown in too. I Bumble at Joe Paparazzi. 11pm—3.30am. £3.50 (£1 .50student). The only problem with Rumble is that it'sso dark. so big and so popular that ifyou're hoping to see friends there you really have to arrange it well in advance. Personally. I
wish they wouldn't inflict full half-hours of bleep-bleep-twiddle on us. but those ' cavernous green shapes the lasers throw up keep boredom at bay during them. See you on the stairs at half-past one.
