The Snatch Club

Edinburgh: The Liquid Room

- I am Harry Ainsworth, nice to see you this evening. Nice hair today . . . not like your last cut, that was very Moloko.

We’re here in the lovely Snatch Club, or the ’Burgh Baws' as we like to call it. It’s like Butlins but it was set up by the lovely Colonel Snatch, who is very busy at the moment doing things with donkeys.

Here at the Snatch Club we’ve got a bit of a mixture maxture . . . we’ve got some fat lad who comes on and DJs,

and I do bits and bobs at the start of the

evening. I do like a bit of hip hop and

some classic modern tunes, but not a lot

I’m more into those classic 805 tunes . . . Kenny Rogers being a particular favourite.

- We don't have a particular punter here

. . . we see all walks of life. We've had a lot of artists actually, yes, a few parties for the British Art Show, absolutely lovely. One in particular yes, I think his name is the Ginger Prince all the way from The Botanics. We get a lot of students, and people who live on


housing estates it’s lovely to see those kinds of people out enjoying themselves. And of course, the beer is only £1 a drink, so they can get arsed. But I don‘t pay

for my drink, being the talent of the night.

-I love working with the great talent of Barry Peters from Hospital Radio. He's a

lovely man, a terrific bloke, lovely hands . . .

A final word to my fans? Well, remember, it’s nice to be known, but it’s even better to be known to be nice. And, if you've got a stomach ache, you don't need

to see a doctor all you need is a really good shit.
