Hory Weller answers those crucial queries


I Name? Boudoir (The Second Coming).

I Occupation? Easy-listening club. I Birthplace? The cocktail bar in the Hotel Satan. Las Vegas.

I And who is responsible tor this twisted hell-hole of nice? The original EJs (that's Easy Jocks) were Dr Paul and lain. lain has left to join a thrash metal band in Granada so there are two new hosts assisting the good doctor. Emma has a degree in easy listening and Matthew has leanings towards the Charles Aznavour ethic, apparently.

I Where did the idea come from? The original Boudoir chaps stumbled across a similar kind of club above a pub whilst being employed as List street vendors during the Festival. Duly converted to the ways of cheese they set one up themselves.

I Where do all these appalling records come from? The Boudoir boys found that you could build up a huge record collection quickly and cheaply by buying from charity sh0ps. Dr Paul originally had a policy of not paying any more than 50p for a record, although now he’s had to up this to £ l. The city centre charity shops are ‘dttff‘ - the truly bad records are only to be had in the far West End and deepest Southside. I Apart from the gentle caress of silky smooth muzak, what else goes on? There are games~a~plenty down Boudoir. with all your childhood faves like Mastermind, Frustration and Cluedo. They've also been busy with the sticky~back plastic and made their own games: snakes and ladders with really fantastic celebrities at the top of ladders and really bad celebs at the bottom of snakes. Tam from Johnny 7 (regular guests of Boudoir) will make the occasional return with his ‘Bingo for Bampots' based on Glasgow bus numbers; ie ‘11 used to go to Drumoyne and now it goes to Basterhouse . . . the 89!‘

Illlslott oi the More? ‘Young people crowding into warehouses listening to easy-listening vinyl and shouting the name of their master, Des O’Connor.’

Boudoir returns to The 13th Note. Tuesday from 4 April.
