The Music Box.
Oxford Rod.
Manchester. 1998
From start to finish, an exercise in what a proper Night Out should be...
easygoing bouncers, led by the legendary Twinny (former Joy Division Roadie/Crew)

Then down the steps to be welcomed (and often waved in for free) by the one & only Marie, aka Mrs Drama

Then into the dark, thumping basement, equipped with ice cold cans of Red Stripe, proper sticky floors and (skinning up friendly) cammo net covered dark corners, where you would find some of the friendliest & Maddest set of Clubbers around.....including mischievous Geordie Music industry insiders, techno loving, Ganja smoking, well dressed members of The Young Guvnors, Roman looking students with with oversized noses....

Music supplied weekly by residents such as Irfan & Ifty (Rainy City People) and Johnny Abstract aka Mr Shifter (Timperly Techno Terror) and his unmatched, mind warping, grin inducing, rare as f**k collection of Detroit Techno, a lot of which I’m still trying to get me head around over 20yr later!! (Juan Akins, Underground Resistance, Ron Trent)

We were Blessed, truly

Big Up & Thanks to Tony B, Maz Mahmoud, Brian May(Mr Bond) , Briffa, Ronnie Oaks, ‘ard Ste, Ste Blower, Chunky Dunky, Johnny NightNose, Cheech, Dings, Mayer, Woody, Danny Shanker, Tony La-Plug, Bocky, Big Gaz, Bocky, Clarkie, Melonhead, Sid-the-Cat, Dead-ard Debs, Redders, Ronnie & Rebecca The Blue
