Isodoras was still in use as a venue up to 1996. Its last night was as Fondue, myself (Bri Fondue) and Jon McCready dj ed there and then the IRA bomb destroyed it! It took out all our props, posters - even a sixties space helmet TV. Worst though, buried somewhere underneath the rubble was our prized picture of a chimp with a stethascope examining a womans breasts...

id love to know who was behind the transcendental nights in the late 80s early 90s they used to have some sixties film projection alongside real oil projecters and other shit it was fantastic on acid alongside an offbeat psychadelia soundtrack and baggy shuffling

Transparent Day - West Coast Pop Art Band, The Doors, Pixies, even Freak Scene by Dinosaur Jr were tracks I remember from those nights. And acid..... we used to go round the corner to Konspiracy as well.

This is the first night club I ever went too my mate Nicci had been going with her uncle - we were still at school i looked dead young but somehow managed to get in one saturday I told me mam I was going to the Davvy to watch hunt for red october. I can remember being in the queue and being so excited but also so embarrassed about my stockport market fake kickers but once i was in nobody gave a shit what I had on and I spent the entire night dancing. I remember I wanna be adored and everyone going mental to directing traffic by inspiral carpets it was mega in there !
