CLUBS listings

GLASGOW: CLUB, SUN continued

I Dream at Strawberry Fields. 10.30pm—3am. £15. Weekly. Fifteen nicker might seem a bit steep for a night down Strawberry Fields. but in addition to banging house anthems and saucy dancing girls. the bar is totally and utterly free. Much like a stomach pump on the NHS.

It has been brough to our attention by Wilkes, Twitch and Roland that the listings for the old Espacio have been getting a little cryptic of late. It's a fair cop. so here‘s what happens: the aforementioned disc jockeys use their sampler (that‘s Roland, he‘s a girl). special boxes of tricks and some turntables to maslt together every known genre of music. resulting iii a dclerious spaz-out of epic proportions. It’s a bit like your record collection (only better) having art epileptic fit while breakdancing with the devil. then roughly shagging the whole of the 1980s in a Ford Capri made of polyester. Only nice. with more delay and echo. Oh, what the lteck. just go there every week and find out for yourself, it's fab.
