Having just completed our annual special report on World AIDS Day (WAD), this year we pressing home the message of support for the fight against this epidemic by the smallest of gesture, that being the wearing of a red ribbon with pride, our feature entitled “Red Ribbon Day” (well worth a read at http://discomatt.com/web/2011/11/reports-red-ribbon-day-world-aids-day-thursday-1st-december-special-reportreflection/) not just an informative based compilation, but our own personal reflection of living with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. But while we have marked the occasion with our report and will also be wearing our red ribbon with pride on World AIDS Day tomorrow (Thurs 1st Dec), scores of bars, clubs, businesses & organisations here in the capital will also being doing their bit for the cause, a whole raft of events on the day itself & into the weekend either raising awareness or, more importantly, raising funds for the wealth of charities that do incredible work in & around the complex yet diverse issues that both HIV & AIDS. So, with plenty of World AIDS Day pride circulating around the capitals clubbing circuit, we thought it appropriate to extend our red ribbon theme this “Red Ribbon Day Devotions” Extra Bites post and cover the places to be & be supporting not just on Thursday but across the weekend.
That said, naturally Thursday (1st Dec) is the main focus and Soho the focal point of activity, not least that the collection of venues behind “Pink Sunday” are extending the theme & idea to “Red Thursday”, the likes of Comptons, Rupert St, Village, Ku Bar, The Yard, Freedom, Profile, The Edge, Circa, G.A.Y. Bar & the Duke of Wellington joining forces in supporting charity The Food Chain, while the aim is also to raise awareness of the continual rise of HIV infections within the gay community. But the centre piece of “Red Thursday” is AIDS swish, a street carnival of remembrance, pride & community in the centre of Soho organised been scene stalwart & damn fine D.J. Stewart Who, he explaining that “…the idea is simple; as a community we dress up like we mean to party, the “SWISH” down Old Compton Street in colourful acknowledgement that we both enjoy & respect life…” Stewart going on to say “The AIDS Swish is an affirmation that we’re here and we care, not just about ourselves, but each other…”. But the aim of staging Swish is to boost awareness & support within the community for the allocation & erection of a permanent AIDS memorial in London. So, what’s the score with Swish? Well, it starts at 6 p.m. tonight (Thurs 1st Dec) at the junction of Moor St & Old Compton St (that’s Ed’s Diner end), the parade then making its way down Old Compton St with a post swish finish at Lo-Profile, where there will be a surprise performance, a keynote speaker & a celebratory drink (naturally!). Then at 8 p.m., to signify the completion of Swish, all the bars mentioned above will play Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”, a better way to celebrate life we cannot think of. Now, to join in all you need to do is turn up on time, while Stewart say’s “…you can dress as you like, in full drag (he probably will be) or your regular day or night wear, just be there! (that’s our line!). So, here’s your opportunity to show vocal & vivacious support for WAD.
As for the bars/clubs themselves tonight, picking out a couple of highlights, Profile & Lo-Profile play a pretty big, the latter putting on an extra special “Society” , the theme being “Strip-a-thon”, all funds raised on the night going to causes, the Terrence Higgins Trust, National AIDS Trust & The Food Chain, the team telling us simply that “…the more you give, the less the Profile team will wear!…” and judging by some of the gorge staff there, this will be something not to miss. But with D.J.’s Nathan 6 & Nick Evans on the decks also entering the spirit of things with scores of saucy & sexed up sounds, there will be also be not just one but two performances from PA’s Katherine Ellis & Amanda Wilson, hosts Irvina & martin making sure the whole evening the mercury certainly turns red on what should be an action packed & fun filled Thursday. Now, Lo-Profile open’s early for the Swish finale, although “Society” kicks off from 10 p.m., entry just £4 before midnight, while Profile upstairs will be in business early doors, D.J. Brent Nicholls spinning the sounds from 8.30 p.m., the bar sporting a superb & special World AIDS Day totaliser, so you can keep tabs on just how much is being raised, as well as how many clothes are being shed!, info on both venues available at http://profilesoho.com & http://loprofile.com.
For something alternative, we zoom across town to Shoreditch, finding East Bloc on City Rd who are very much doing their bit for WAD although in a characteristically different way, as their primary aim is to raise funds for the benefit of Chiva Africa, a charity relatively close to our heart, not least that it supports HIV positive people (specifically children) in South Africa, so a well worthy cause in our books, a whole load on info on Chiva available at http://chiva-africa.org/, the night down at East Bloc organised by tip top D.J./Producer Tom Stephan, who has teamed up with Dupe Den’s Mark-Ashley Dupe & Jayson Jack Frost who will host the night. However with a cast of D.J.’s that includes Tom (of course) along with Harvey Adam & Jay Jaymen in the main room, the second space sporting Matt Bogarde, Kartel Brown & Oliver Rant, with two special back-to-back sets including Mr Bogarde vs. Nutty Nyce & Miguel Dare vs. Fifi, there will also be a special performance by La Gosse to round off what will be a very special night for a very special cause. East Bloc’s doors open at 10 p.m. with the event running through till a planned 4 a.m. finish, more details on this Shoreditch spot available at http://eastbloc.co.uk.
A couple of quick other mentions for WAD go to Soho bar’s Ku & Rupert St (RS), the former holding their infamous WAD auction where you can bid for your chance to date one of the yummy scrummy staff, plenty of other lots on offer too, while over at RS, resident D.J. Alessandro pops up to spin a special “Red Thursday” set, while the team holding a raffle & throwing in a free party prize for ten people at RS, this prize including a bottle of spirit, prosseco & a finger buffet, that on top of special shots, all funds from sales going direct to The Food Chain. For more info on both venues, check http://ku-bar.co.uk & http://rupertstreet.com.
So that’s World AIDS Day itself, what about the rest of the weekend, well while scores of bars & clubs around the capital & beyond will be doing their bit, we pick out just two others that we consider top tree choices of where to be & be seen in supporting WAD. Firstly on Saturday (3rd Dec), state of the art venue Pulse in Southwark stages what is very much a welcome return to the annual WAD commemorations, as “The Remembrance Ball” returns, and with a bang, as headliners will be The Freemasons will centre-stage the main room, along with Cahill, while there will be special stage shows too. But the music extends to a Gaydar second space where Simon Le Vans will be joined by other Gaydar jocks on the decks, a third “remembrance” chill-out room where to team hope to project images of those lost to HIV/AIDS, organiser Mark telling us, “…we would like people to send in a photograph of someone they have lost so we can project an image onto one of the video walls in this remembrance room…” he adding that “…it’s almost like the patchwork quilts that are done in The US and while we want to celebrate life with this ball, it is also about remembrance, to those that are gone but not forgotten…”. Now, Pulse’s doors open on Saturday at 10 p.m., the event running through till a planned 6 a.m. finish, entry a hefty £15, although a sizable chunk of this will be donated to HIV charities Status & Mildmay, while more info on the venue (including exact locale) can be found at http://pulseclub.co.uk.
Then on Sunday (4th Dec), promoter Steven Sharp once again makes a wonderful WAD impression with his Orange “World AIDS Day Fundraiser, the primary benefactor being international charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, another charity that is very close to our hearts (Steven’s too). So, with a large proportion of the entry fees to Orange going direct to the charity, the team will also be collecting for this deserved cause on the night, so please dig deep into your pockets while D.J.’s The Oli, Fat Tony & the Sharp Boys will be digging deep into the record collections to bring you scores of brilliant beats in the main room at temporary home Factory, these seeing you deep into Monday morning. With deep also being the word, RAW resident Gonzalo Rivas will take up the musical mantle in room two, stripping you down with minimal beats & classic deep house that will be a set not to be missed. So, as we have hinted, Orange has moved to Factory, their temporary home for the next three weeks at 65 Goding St, doors opening on Sunday (4th Dec) earlier than usual at 10 p.m., the club closing similarly slightly earlier at 7 a.m., entry just £5 before 1 a.m. with a flyer &/or ad, while main prices are held at just £10. More information on the temporary switch of Orange from Fire to Factory can be found at http://fireclub.c.uk/news, while pop into Facebook events page for more info on this heavenly happening.
So, that’s our take of where to be & be seen supporting World AIDS Day this year, we hopefully dong our bit tonight at Swish from 6 p.m. & (if we have the legs after WE, Beyond & Gigolo) popping into Orange on Sunday. So, if you see us, do come say hi, but remember to wear your red ribbon with pride & make sure you “Go There! Be There!” (DISCO MATT)
In out clubbing exploits, particularly here in London, we tend to fall into the same old same old trap, the mecca that is Vauxhall more than often drawing us in, despite ideas otherwise, not that the brands on offer aren’t attractive, far from it, the likes of Lovechild, Beyond & Orange in amongst some of our favourites. Indeed when you look at the capital’s scene in general, there is so much on offer that whilst we find it difficult to spread ourselves sufficiently across its broad spectrum, we can never claim to be bored with the lot (and it is a lot) that we cover, so, like the age old saying goes, “…when you are tired of London, you are tired of life…” and we are far from being tired of the captivating city that we find ourselves currently based. But fr4om time to time, we do like a change of scenery, something to stimulate the senses a little differently, giving us the opportunity to let our hair down, have a laugh & a giggle, harp back to the good old days of pop and step out of our dancing shoes and in Gay City Rollers, that is exactly what we can do.
So, when news of the return of this very different dance club landed in our inbox, we simply had to make it a date, although it hardly seemed a year since we found ourselves spinning around the skating ring at The Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall, on that occasion, celebrating the 1st birthday of Gay City Rollers (GCR), the roller skating disco brought to the London clubbing scene by Lovechild’s tip top promoter, Alex Erfan. After taking a natural break, this partly due to promoter plans & also due to venue commitments we were thrilled to hear of its resurrection and, despite having walked away with an injured back last time, were every bit as enthusiastic & excited about making the return trip, especially as we would be in the company of D.J. & SeenQueen big cheese Brent Nicholls, plus Industri & clubbing companion Stephen (aka Miss Cougar). With its revised Sunday slot, it also appealed a little more too, although with so much else going on across the weekend, the new niche that GCR found itself in would likely to be a tricky one to attract the numbers, the questions remaining, how did it fare? , what did we think of our second skating soiree? and did we walk away unscathed?
With a brilliant Beyond under our belt, a short reprieve found us heading back to Vauxhall and a liaison with Industri & clubbing cougar pal Stephen, a watering hole stop at Barcode ensuing while our other companion for our roller disco rampage, Brent Nicholls, got his proverbial skates on to meet us on route to The Renaissance rooms. With much hilarity already ensuing (more than a hint of what was to come), we arrived at GCR’s doors not long before 8 p.m., giving us still plenty of time to indulge in an extensive skate spinning session, even though the event had been going a good two hours already. With entrance formalities over, our excited anticipation quickly over spilled within seconds of exchanging our Adidas high risers for the four wheeled skating boots that were set to dominate our ability to balance upright for the next handful of hours, as we didn’t even make it as far as the refreshments bar before heading for another bar, in this case the closest one of the safety variety, as our balance was already compromised by the tiny wheels underneath our feet.
With Stephen in a similar plight, we both made it to the safety of our destination, Brent soon joining us along with GCR’s main man Alex Erfan, both preferring to stay in regular shoes, at least for the moment, incumbent D.J. Stewart Who also exchanging his wheeled boots for the flatter variety, remarking to us as we exchanged greetings, “… I can’t perform behind the decks in these…”, he show style sets involving lots of movements of both hands & body, a true spectacular sight to behold and one we used to enjoy so much in the halcyon days of Barcode Soho in his heavenly hands. With drinks sorted and Brent in close call with his camera, the scene was set for the skating spills to commence, a reasonable crowd already occupying the rink, while our less than confident skating was confining us to stumbling around the outer seating area, Mr Nicholls never far away with his lens pointed in our direction as the wheels underneath us played tricks with our vertical status, sending us to the floor on more than one occasion, the safety bars our only savour from falling flat on our dignity. With The Very Miss Dusty O revving up the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s rhythms, including a fab ABBA medley, it was our slips, trips & falls that causing as much entertainment and hilarity, both to us & the camera happy Brent, it coming as no surprise that one such acrobatic adventure was going to get caught for video posterity, Mr Nicholls, splitting his sides with laughter as we found our legs well & truly split.
With his camera clicking done, our lovely laughing liege also changed from flat to four wheels, virtually instantly zooming round to join us as we gingerly went up and down the outside space around the main rink, still trying to gain a little speed & forward thrust without falling over. But with Brent being far more dextrous with his disco dancing skating feet, we were keen to keep up, although this in itself caused calamity as well as collisions with the walls, the rails, the seats and, obviously, the floor, Mr Erfan not helping our stability cause one little bit, the inevitable pile up finding us in a very compromising position, our dignity well and truly lost this time (twice in two weeks) and our “hot pants” split right up the back!! However, despite our tumbling’s & crash landings, we were determined to master the art, a couple of helpful guys giving out tips and with quite a few on the advanced rink giving us ideas as we watched in amazement, our determination was to pay dividends, as, along with lots of Brent encouragement amidst the hilarity, we soon got the hang of the gliding & rolling, gaining momentum by the minute.
Now it was time for us to be brave, especially as Stewart was pulling some real classic 70’s & 80’s pop tunes out of his bountiful bag of beats, the record that swayed our decision to hit the rink proper being THE roller disco dance track to beat them all, “Xanadu” having been given the Wayne G pop-tastic treatment, sending Brent soaring around with his hands stretched high and us emulating him with ever growing confidence, our adopted name, Olivia, coming to the fore. Meanwhile poor old Miss Cougar was shuffling along at snail’s pace, Stephen just a little too nervous to let himself go, probably a wise thing given some of the dignity drops we had displayed, although his magical moment in the limelight was yet to come. So, with the bit between our teeth, it was into the rink, mixing it up with fellow novices & the more adept of this art, our wise move to start slowly and get into our stride working well until one guy spun past our inside, causing us to lose balance & kiss the floor with our bum although not before breaking our fall with our right hand, a move that we would come to regret the following day.
Injured & shaken, we took a moment to rest, Stephen having all but given up on skating of any sort, while Brent was still having a wail of a time spinning both on the rink and around the outside, the smiles & laughter moments a clear indication he was having one of the best times clubbing (well roller disco skating) in a long while. But, with the 11 a.m. finish drawing to a close, yet Stewart still playing to the crowd with his audacious antics as well as terrific tunes, Stephen’s moment was to come as a classic 80’s hip-hop pop track saw him effecting an impromptu body popping display, Brent on hand to witness Miss Cougar’s crafty dance moves on skates to its fullest & most hilarious extent, we sadly missing out on his glory making few minutes as we were switching back from high rise four wheels, to our Adidas high’s, our two pals soon following suit. So, with total balance restored, we waved farewell to the roller skating rink at The Renaissance rooms, to amble home, licking our now substantial right hand wound that would, 12 hours later, prove to be a bit more serious than we thought, a suspected fracture meaning a splint would need to be applied, not quite the end to what was, without doubt, one of the most entertaining evenings we had enjoyed in many a moon.
Concluding on the Gay City Rollers return is pretty easy really, as, despite the low turnout, it provided rip roaring fun & frivolity full of laughs & giggles from start to finish, we loving every minute, despite the tumbles & crash landings that saw us lose our dignity, rip our hot pants and eventually walk away with an injury. With both The Very Miss Dusty O & then Stewart Who providing the most brilliant backdrop of 70’s, 80’s & 90’s pop-tastic tunes, Stewart’s antics behind the decks adding to the enthralling entertainment, it goes without saying that we couldn’t recommend this cavorting clubbing night enough. With Wednesday’s being swapped for Sunday’s, if promoter Alex Erfan sticks with the new slot, we are sure that Gay City Rollers will grow on this 2nd birthday bash, back to the popularity it enjoyed when we celebrated its first. And with the next date already in the diary, a Royal Wedding special on 24th April when Kate & Wills will being “Doing The Xanadu” with Olivia & co, we will be back for more for sure and you should be too.

It hardly seems a year since we found ourselves spinning around the skating ring at The Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall, on that occasion, celebrating the 1st birthday of Gay City Rollers, the roller skating disco brought to the London clubbing scene by Lovechild’s tip top promoter, Alex Erfan. So, after a natural break, we were thrilled to hear of its resurrection and, despite having walked away with an injured back last time, were every bit as enthusiastic & excited about making the return trip, especially as we would be in the company of D.J. & SeenQueen big cheese Brent Nicholls, plus Industri & clubbing companion Stephen (aka Miss Cougar). So, arriving at the doors not long before 8 p.m., our excited anticipation over spilled within seconds of exchanging our Adidas high risers, for the four wheeled skating boots that were set to dominate our ability to balance upright for the next handful of hours, Stephen in a similar plight, although Brent far more dextrous with his disco dancing skating feet. Mind you, with heavenly hits from the 70,s, & 80’s played out by The Very Miss Dusty O & then Stewart Whoo, it was first an ABBA medley & then the perfect theme tune of the evening, Xanadu, that saw our adopted name come to the fore, Olivia, in quick succession overturning, coming a cropper, falling on her dignity and ripping her hot pants, all captured on video by Mr Nicholls, splitting his sides with laughter as we found our legs well & truly split. Topples aside, we soon got the hang of it and by the end of the evening were circulating the rink with muted confidence, our liege Brent the perfect incentive for us to master this four wheeled frenzy, although poor old Stephen could only muster a skating shuffle at the best. Having laughed & giggled our way from start to finish, this has to have been the most entertaining evening we have had in many a moon, so with so much more to say, it’s “ready, steady, go for the review”. (DISCO MATT)
Having hinted to the video shot of our spill, we thought we would share with you the link, so you can see how unglamorous we were on four wheels, so much so that, not only did we rip our hot pants, but we have sustained an injury to our wrist, leaving our right hand in a splint (it could only happen to us!), our amiable aide Mr Nicholls commenting of our plight. “…How funny!, how camp! how you! Yes, after finding your dignity after F… Reunion, you promptly lost it again on the corner of glamour & trash where you suffered glitter-tastrophe at the hands of a pair of roller skates!…”, now wonder he was laughing so much in the video (it is hilarious), which you can check out at http://brentnicholls.tumblr.com/post/4507750571/it-was-the-night-disco-matt-side-kick-stephen-and
Despite launching close on two years ago now and to considerable fanfare at that, making it down to Gay City Rollers was always a challenge for us, not least as the Wednesday night timing was tricky given work commitments, although some would say that was a pretty lame excuse as it was never planned to be a late event, the 7 pm till midnight giving us plenty of opportunity to get home in time for work the following day. Indeed, Gay City Rollers (GCR) wasn’t & isn’t anything like the cavorting clubbing we are used to, the whole event being much more of a social gathering where the central theme of roller skating brings together a fun filled & cosmopolitan crowd that are all up the for same thing, socialising, fun and yes, roller skating, but to some of the best disco music around. And by jove did we have some fun when we hit host venue The Renaissance Rooms on Wednesday 3rd of March for GCR’s 1st Birthday Bash, we naturally putting review pen to paper which you can still catch via direct link http://discomatt.blogspot.com/2010/03/dancing-on-wheels-gay-city-rollers-1st.html, our reflection hopefully giving you a feel for the formula and an indication of just what a fun night out it is.
Now you may be asking, what happened after the 1st Birthday?, well due to commitments of the venue, The Renaissance Rooms and also GCR’s promoter, one Alex Erfan (of Lovechild, As One, Hustlaball etc, etc, etc fame!), unfortunately this Xanadu style night of roller disco was put into hibernation, although such was the following, admittedly a little niche, and such was the cries for GCR to return, that Mr Erfan entered into negations with the host venue to re-instigate the night. And in doing so, not only will Gay City Rollers return to what is undoubtedly THE best equipped venue to host this prolific party, but Alex has secured a Sunday evening for the event (yes we know it’s a school day the following day), a much better fit in our books, so as a result pretty much guaranteeing a resoundingly rapturous response. Plus, thirteen months since GCR was out to bed, this roller skating splendour will be taking the opportunity to celebrate its return in style, with a 2nd birthday bash with a splash.
So with the scene well and truly set, let’s delve into the detail of this kitsch & cult alternative clubbing night of “dancing on wheels” and first up is the music, which couldn’t be more disco tipped delight if you dreamt of it, as Alex has secured two of the best in the business to rev up the rhythms with old time classics intermixed with more modern movers, both The Very Miss Dusty O & Stewart Who, GCR favourites and the perfect duo to get you up on your four wheeled feet and spinning around (ooh isn’t that a Kylie song) The Renaissance Room’s specially prepared ring (is there a brown girl in?!?!) with disco dance crazy tunes right through the night. Then there is the Gaydar influence, probably the biggest brand in gaydome having joined forces with Alex to promote & support the event, so expect plenty of Gaydar giveaways on the night. Add to that the inclusion of the cute Ku-Bar Boys in their tight hot pants & leg warmers and the eye candy will be present for all to see, in true Gay City Rollers style of course.
Now to the all important info and Gay Coty Rollers “2nd Birthday” takes place this coming Sunday (10th April) at the Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall, the event kicking off at the revised starting time of 6 p.m. and running through to a workday friendly 11 p.m. Entrance before 7 p.m. is a mere £8, although rises to £12.50 thereafter, although both prices include a free drink & the roller skate hire with more info on the event & the venue available by going to either http://gaycityrollers.com or to http://alexerfan.com.
So, what better excuse for some roller disco delight could you want, we will certainly be there to report on it all, no, doubt like at the 1st Birthday bash, falling arse over tip in heavenly hilarity, meaning that a night of disco dancing on four wheels couldn’t be a better fit, leaving us to say…”Go There! Be There! (DISCO MATT)
