i West (Cleopatra’s), selects some oi the 1 tracks you’re likely to hear him playing

= at any oi his nights.

5 The ilrst band that I ever felt like dancing to. Surely Levi’s are joking


The lovely Dave Ross, sell-styled Don Corleone oi the Glasgow clubscene, and DJ at Crash (The Cotton Club),

1. Sex Pistols: Pretty Vacant


when they say ‘Anarchy’ is the music tortheir next ad. . . .?

2. Rolling Stones: Sympathy For The Devil

The live version is a club anthem to a couple ol hundred oooh, ooohers (pardon me? - Ed) at Crash.

3. Spirea X: Speed Reaction

At long last a Glasgow band that doesn’t have that ’Glasgow band scene’ tag. Bloody brilliant.

4. Aretha Franklin: Respect

I could have a number at things from Otis, Arthur Conley, Isleys, but the lyrics and attitude made me choose this one.

5. James: Come Home

Great pop music that you can dance to without the typical contrived Manchester dance thing.

P.S. Atop 5 is iusttoo short! I leel aggrieved about forgetting/excluding Abba, Adam Ant, Soul Ii Soul, S’Express. . . (Enough. We get the idea - Ed.)

Their intimate one-nighter has an after-hours atmosphere which is more like a party than any usual club.due to the clued-up city crowd its retrospective funk. soul and disco attracts. The location is still ‘sccret‘; but ifyou don’t know where it’s at. then you shouldn't be there anyway. Okay?
