The Que Club
Saturday 24 February 2001
Worth the wait!!
It's been nearly 3 months since the last Flashback and well it
was worth the wait after all. I've not been raving since New Years
Eve so I was eager to down on the yellow jacket and me ravin shoes
and head off to the Que club.
Heard that flashback sold out on Monday all 2500 tickets gone,
so if your planning for the next one get 'em early !!! And if
you missed don't read on otherwise you'll be in tears.
Queuing didn't take that long as they opened on time bout 9:30
rather than half hour late like last time.
Got in cloakroom max time bout 2 mins and off I headed to get
me glow sticks and into the main arena.
Wow! Inside the main arena now the production was amazing the
sound system was just booming I mean BOOMING. The inflatable's
for this was wicked you had these black balls with day glow spike
pointing out of them. On the stage you had some amazing décor
as well the dance floor had some wicked platform like the one
in the birthday rave bout 4 months ago.
First up Mr. Pilgrim, quality oldskool set some anthems mixed
up with the proper underground stuff from bout early 1990-91'ish.
Not many people raving' on dance floor so we headed off to the
jungle room this room was bouncing and it was only bout 10 or
was 10:30 there was a jungle tune the remix of the horn track
which is heavy !! Who was djing don't have a clue !!
Back into the main arena and pilgrim started to get some quality
tune such as me fave quadraphiona then next up Mistress Mo. Really enjoyed her set lots of wicked tunes, Long John was on the mic for the first half before Lenni took over !
During the end off her set who did I see wandering round mc LIVLEE
were was Charlie b ? I belive that live lee goes better off with
Dougal, would have liked to see Charlie Bbut never mind think
he was stuk in manchester at Skelter.
Next up the reason I was here DOUGAL yes
the great one Dougal started off with oldskool anthems but finished
off happy live lee just rocking the mike with the fave rhyme my
name is mc livelee
and 2nd chance. Who ever thought they
would here forever together and steam train in the Que club???
I thought I would never here that the crowd loved it especially
people my age-group coz that my oldskool the ladies loved cause
it was happy . Dougal finished off with steamtrain whcih saw the place explode with livelee goin crazy on the mic !!!
Next up was ratty was djin' not really a fave of that dark side
apart from tango and ratty's final conflict which I could hear
up in the chill out room!! Inside the chill out room Mr. Will
"the camera man" Chown cheers for coolin' me down with
We were just chillin up on the balcony could see people ravin
on top of the lighting box that's was cool just hope no-one fell
off. But just sittin up there and the man micky finn just turned
up and he played just one wicked tune I think it was reservoir
dogs.J ust had to get back in front off the stage for some jungle
Wicked tunes including pulp fiction, ready or not?, no diggity
ah man the man played a stompin' set cause black-market didn't
turn up he was on for a good 2-3 hours no GQ as well disappointed
in GQ didn't turn up last flashback and the prosession event a
week before maybe he don't like Birmingham ?? But instead you
had Lenni, Long john and Spyda, Spyda is wicked, this was one
of my fave sets off the evening.
Last but not least SL2 yes the boys are back in town wicked guys
respects due to lime, Slipmatt and jay j. Played some slowly old
hardcore to start and then it got mental in the middle with tunes
like ragga tip, way in ma brain also charly not forgettin the
crowds favourite OUTTA SPACE. Finished the set with some jungle
like champion sound and breaking free. Spoke to lime and slipmat
durin the sets and they are really top geezers asked them to sign
an album sleeve from united dance anthems. They couldn't stop
laughing bout there old hair cuts from back in the day. Respect
due been doin the circuit for what 13 years and still drawing
in the crowd and sounds!!
All in all a wicked nite shouts to me mates the 4-d and ed, Rob
"can't find square peg got lost" Learner. Also not forgettin
all the other nutters inside who I don't know your names but know
