Just read around the anachronisms ‘cos we’re heading back to the glamour and decadence of prohibition-era New York.

Uncle Sam has clamped down on booze so you gotta be quick if you wanna get slick, and we’ve got just the joint for a sneaky gin or three.

Special guest: Rob J

28th May 2011, Kensal Green, London

Glitterball VII: Seventh Heaven

Residents Special

5th February 2011, Nomad, London

If I could pick one word to sum up Glitterball VII it would be FLESH. (That or BALLOONS).

Marcus’ oestrogen supplemented diet gave rise to some hideously aged breasts, Rhalou corralled some escaped bunnies from the Playboy mansion, and post-party UV lighting revealed suspicious ghost-like ectoplasm adorning the entire dancefloor…
