I Sublime at Wilkie House. 10.30pm-3am. £8 (£6). 22 Oct. Fortnightly. Another big, big night for the Sublime faithful when Marco Zaffarano (MFS) makes a welcome return.

Support in the main room is from ldge, while the back will see Felix and Gary Mac doing their electro, nu skool breaks and classics mix. (http://www.sublime- uk.demon.co.ukl)

Luke Slater

'Oh man, I've done well enough interviews Iately,’ begins Luke Slater. Not a good start to any conversation, let's make sure we know. what ground to avoid. What‘s the worst question that you've been asked so far? 'T he worst question?’ he considers. 'Well, somebody asked me in Holland the other day how many times I masturbate. It was the first interview that she had ever done and she just came in with that question. I thought that that

was a bit off the topic.’

After his phenomenally successful Freek Funk in 1997, Luke should be used to press interest and pressure. His latest album Wireless already has music journalists reaching for their dictionaries - 'It’s kind of like electro punk.’ Luke simply says - and will see a fairly hefty European tour on the back of it, starting in November. After such exhaustive press commitments, does he feel a lot of pressure. then? “There's definitely pressure to get a heroin addiction and to sleep with a lot of women in

interesting ways.‘ (Simone Baird)
