I Friday nights in Glasgow have always been monopolised by Slam and The Tunnel with other nights regularly falling by the wayside (this issue. for example. sees the sad demise of Liberty City at the Voodoo Room). Nevertheless Sub Club are launching a sparkling new
: night entitled The Yard
featuring Yip Yap’s Gareth Sommerville. if he
' can reproduce the success
he's enjoyed in Edinburgh this night is going to be storming.
I Last year we had the incessant club tours. Now though. we‘ve got the club residency explosion. Final Frontier (Club UK. London) are discussing a monthly slot with Cool Lemon. Hard Times will regularly be at The Garage and Renaissance is at the Tunnel. Geoff from Renaissance says that the reason he‘s doing it is because the clubs back home have slipped into a dull rut of uninspiring guest DJs who still pack the punters in. I Goldmine is the new 24-hour restaurant located half way between Sub Club and The Arches. After already hosting two
Slam parties the venue will undoubtedly slip easily into the way of Glasgow club life. For more details see the food pages of The List. this issue.
I The Blueprint posse. as well as starting a new club. Wednesdays at the Volcano. have been putting together a magazine of the same name.

- from Stereo Mcs. The
club night will also have a ‘Gallery’ space for local artists to add some ‘visual ﬂava'. Anyone interested in showing their work should contact the Volcano. (Rory Weller)

I Name? Evolution Records.
I Occupation Cult British electronica label run by Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard of Reload. Global Connnunication and Jedi Knights fame.
I Date of birth I991.
I Place of birth Crewkeme. Somerset.
I Details of conception A chance meeting between Mark (who made the early 90s ‘ardcore tune ‘Roobarb and Custard‘) and Tom (an Aphex Twin collaborator) and mutual discovery of Carl Craig’s Fragile EP (asBFC). One track ‘Evolution’ was to change their lives (and name their label).
I Admirers of the newborn label? Richie Hawtin (Evolution EP 5) and Mixmaster Morris (Evolution 4 8c 6) to name two.
I One for the trainspotters then? Not at all. Evolution 1 and 2 have now been deleted but luckily there‘s a handy compilation The Theory Of Evolution featuring the best tracks on the label.
I Which are? ‘Amenity‘ according to LTJ Bukem, ambient classic ‘Obselon Mi-nos‘ according to Mixmaster Morris and the stoned- electro of ‘Arcadian‘ according to James Lavelle.
I Hardly the purist techno label you might have thought then? No. In fact, Mark and Tom are relaunching Evolution. modelling the structure on DJ Duke‘s Power Music with three separate subdivisions — one each for house. techno and jungle.
I Techno, jungle, ambient, house; any other styles they’d like to cover? Well there‘s the Jedi Knights project making electro (Mark and Tom havejust been asked to remix the next Juan Atkins single as The Jedi Knights) and their label signings.
I What label signings?~Matt Herbert who makes ironic conceptual electronica as Wishmountain Plays. Steven Home aka The Home and Jak ‘n‘ Stepper
I What to say? Darwin was spot on. I What not to say? Got any trance. gabba. ’appy 'ardcore mate. Evolution Records night is or The Arches. Glasgow on Sat 8 Apr:
