Buff Club. Glasgow. We Jun

‘This is basically an evening of cabaret with music, performance, magic, drag kings and the like. The second half of the night is focused on the music with disc jockeys and records and that kind of thing.’ It’s almost worth turning this whole article to Frank Percy, Club Tromolo's inimitable compere. He’s got the gift of the gab and knows how to capture the anarchy that the Tromolo posse bring tothe Buff Club every month.

The club’s origins are obfuscated by he incorrigible Percy: ‘l’ve worked clubs in Macclesfield since the early 705, although everybody says I look too young to have done that. I came up to Scotland on a bus trip to the Highlands, I stopped off in Glasgow and the bus drove away without me. I’ve been here ever since. All of the money that we make from the cloakroom, bar and such is going towards building a spaceship

landing strip in Dalmellington.

‘This month we’ve got Quinn playing live and the Stinky Munchkins,‘ explains Percy of the forthcoming Tromolo date. ‘Me missus likes them. She’s a patron of the arts. Well, she’s a patron of the Art School anyway.‘
