ECLECTICA SUBSCIENCE Club 69, Paisley, 21 May
First birthdays are always a bit special. Fawning friends and family members fuss over how much you’ve grown and happily kiss and slobber over your ruddy cheeks. Meantime, you get on with the business of making milky sick and piddling your Pampers. It’s not much different in clubland and this month Subscience is the bonnie bairn getting to blow out its very first candle.
Last year local boys Tom 8, Steve Close, Don Craig and Stevie P decided to rub nasties at Club69 and in the company of a joyous gathering of clubbers, Subscience came bouncing into the world. With a healthy nod towards the values and tenets of their Rub-a- Dub patriarchs and a dash of reverence to the infamous Paisley basement, the Subscience residents have set out to have a party with passion — one year of filling the dancefloor with everything from the KLF
to Jeff Mills.
Just as their first formative 12 months eschewed the glut of guests that clog up and bog down the local scene, tonight’s birthday bash sticks to its toy guns with proud parents Tom and Steve manning the decks. Their birthday wish? ‘A good old celebration, everyone getting pissed, dancing to whatever we feel like playing and hoping the girls’ toilets don’t get blocked.’ Your wish will be granted (plumbing not
withstanding). (Michael Donald)
