Radio 1 DJ Dave Pearce plays George Square and the Colours NYE bash. Harri stays true to the Subbie's Subzero party

Hogmanay or bust

With nearly every conceivable space and then some being used as a party or club venue this Hogmanay, there’s more than a few choices for the dicerning clubber.

Edinburgh looks like making a banging night of it at several trance and techno nights. Mingin‘, Apex and Pillbox will be putting on the Black & White Party at Studio 24 with their combined residents DJing while ever popular Sublime puts on their Millennium party at Wilkie House and have Billy Nasty and Nuw Idol (live) along with their normal residents. Pure meanwhile are making a techno night of it at the Leith Function Suite with The Bill, Sandy Paris and Rob Dylan. The line up is straight out of garage and soul heaven at Sound of Soul at La Belle Angele, with the likes of Keb Darge and Yogi Haughton joining many others. It’ll be a kitsch affair from Vegas at their Grand Millennium Ball, to be held at the Art College, with a pair of tickets to Las Vegas to be

linoleum fun at the Glasgow School of Art with Optimo residents and guests. Pure are also making an appearance on the West Coast with Brainstorm and Twitch representing the legendary techno club. Harri and Domenic will be playing together at Subzero, the Sub Club's bash, while Michael Kilkie, Colin Tevendale and Stephen McKay will be throwing down the trance and hard house anthems at The Tunnel's New Year’s Eve party and The Arches have pooled together their outstanding DJs from resident clubs Relief, Pressure, Fruitfly and Inside Out for a big bash which will, subject to license, spill out onto Midland Street. George Square will become the Radio 1 site for the night with Dave Pearce.

Bang in between the two cities is Shotts, where Colours are putting on their Masters of the Millennium do at the Centrelink 5 Complex and can boast the biggest line up of DJs we've heard of to date. Jeremy Healy, Dave Pearce, Danny Rampling, Carl Cox (ISDN)

Club news

THERE WAS PANIC among clubbers in Scotland after a fire ripped through the building next to the Sub Club on Sun 14 Nov, but it seems that the club will not have to be closed. See Agenda, page 25.

LIFE JUST GOT a whole lot better when we found out that Craig In Demand will starting up 'Substantial' at Eden, monthly from Sat 11 Dec. There's been a gaping hole in Edinburgh clubbing after The Honeycomb was closed and the garage club Substance was left homeless. Craig Smith will reside and there are plans to have some serious guests up. There is a God.

GLASGOW CLUBBERS WILL be stunned to learn that the Glasgow School of Art has lost its late licence, for reasons that remain unclear as The List went to press (something to do with not submitting a renewal application, we wager). This will mean a temporary end to some of the city's best nights out, including My Machines, Turbulence and Divine.

AWARD-WINNING HOTBED of young talent, Subcity Radio, will be broadcasting again next year and the production team invite List readers to send in mix tapes and proposals for new shows. If you fancy being the next Westwood, Peel or Tong, send your efforts to Head of Programming, Subcity Radio, John McIntyre Building, University Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8QQ.

LEAVING EDINBURGH IS the Manumission bus (pictured), bound on the Buckfast Express for Ibiza. There was a suitable send off at Black 80's on Sun 7 Nov which saw many local faces dressed a little rudely (that's Roger from Wilkie with the fake willy) and drinking a very potent cocktail (Buckfast, White Lightning. Vodka and Cherry Coke, highly recommended). We'll keep you posted as to their whereabouts and if they get arrested (£10 says they do).
