I politely suggest your 30 years behind the curve.

Not really, I have/had been involved in clubs on the island and noticed the downward trend over the last decade. Too much cheap alcohol from supermarkets whilst the cost of drinks in clubs escalated. Result - people drinking before they leave the house and turn up to clubs later at night.

Wardour Street? My local for years. The massive parrot on a perch at the end of the bar that lived on peanuts and Babycham. That the one?

Well, I hope they don't pay for laces because the little buggers don't do them up!

What is the World coming to? I don't know.

Methinks you are talking rubbish. A decent night club run properly would clean up on the island. Problem the island has had is the ones we currently have don’t cater for the age group with disposable income. Aiming for the under 30’s is a no winner

taxi driver logic lol.

Hasn't that become a Byron Burger now? (although I think that chain is retreating too).

How do you DJ mp3s anyway  - is that just a playlist?

same a vinyl- with a mixer.......

if you stick space dust in your gob it apparently sounds just the same as vinyl......

Fucking legendary that place. Got bladdered in there with a permanently-angry Julie Birchall and punk-hipster/artist Caroline Coon and a few other music business types before doing support to the 'Angelic Upstarts' at the (proper) Marquee up the street. Another band on the list that night, 'Well Well Well' had a Manx lad on lead - Colin McGuiness. Wonder where he is now..?
