Planet K was a cool venue. It was spacious and airy and had a great lighting feature behind the bar made of different coloured squares. Quite Pulp-esque.
I think the booze was a bit cack - just warm cans of Red Stripe, or something like that.
During its relatively short life span I saw Norman Jay, Ashley Beedle, Lil Louis and Carl Craig. Some of these occasions were Robodisco nights. They had a great big wind-up air raid siren thing that was cranked up at the most exciting moments. I loved it and always wanted a go.
Planet K was a bit lacking in 'nooks and crannies' though. It sometimes had the feel of a large school gym. There was no where to go if you fancied a quick snog.
I've had to guess the year for this one, but I'm pretty sure Euro 2000 was on, and I'd made a makeshift skirt out of an England flag.
When Planet K closed down, it became Ascension, a kind of commercial student chart dance nightmare. No one went.
