Seems very advanced for 1990
Sounds like 1992, nearly
Went to a rave club at the Astoria called Slime Time!, in early 92
Actually that flyer has jogged my memory - the night was called The Breakfast Club (started at 5 AM in the morning on Sunday!) and the promoter was Nut-Nut Promotions, who also did Slime Time!. The venue does appear to be the Astoria - same address, 157 Charing Cross Road - but at that time was called Busby's. (Later the venue reverted to being Astoria 2)
Yeah I remember the promise of "plate-shaking"sounds!
Also remember seeing this slogan somewhere or other (maybe the club listings page of iD)
When we went it was all bombastic Belgian style riffage and gaunt short-haired youths slicing the air with gun-fingers
The idea of something so ardkore being right in the centre of the West End seems somehow amazing in retrospect (but then a lot of the acid house kicked off from right in the centre of town)
Breakfast Club was also just round the corner - barely fifty yards I'd say - from the Mars Bar, where Speed would be based from late 94 - the West End location symbolising the return of the black sheep of rave into the fold of musicality and acceptance by the house-techno bods. To which, "gah!", yes... but it was a fab club it has to be admitted.
Fond memories of dancing to "Pulp Fiction" by A. Reese at Speed - in its own slick rollin way the B-line was just as much a plate-shaker as anything from three years earlier
Actually another hardcore nuum club right in the dead centre of London - a minute's walk from Centrepoint - was Thunder & Joy, every Sunday in this basement under the YMCA, a little ways up (and just off) Tottenham Court Road.
