Unfortunately all, the clubnight will not happen until further notice. The bastard has us by the balls.
For the foreseable future the club will turn into a regular radio station and twice-monthly magazine. You can find the station at the link HERE, also playing a lot of stuff from beyond the dancefloor. We will go live with the clubnight from 9 o’clock each Saturday night – DES WAS A BOWIE FAN VIA RADIO
And, if you wish, you can subscribe to the magazine, old postal style, with delivery on the second and final Thursday of the month, at the link HERE
