Highland Club Culture

Blam Blam

1990 - 1998

The Club night was called Blam Blam and was deep house and Dark Techno.

We had our own Black Widow sound system.

Our resident DJ was George T from Tribal Function one of the biggest nights in Edinburgh for over 15 years.

The club started in the Cameron Club then went on to the Ice rink in Inverness.

Every night we would transform the club with parachutes nets which became the norm and the art work and animatronics (dancing robots) film loops, projections was created by Wreckage from The Mutoid Waste company who was also signed to Wall of Sound records.

The Mutoids started the dance scene in London with the first warehouses parties.

We only had one security person and his name was Big John...guitarist for Nirvana..Yeah that one!

The first big name to play was Darren Emerson at the Cameron Club with Craig Walsh. After that in no particular order..Justin Robertson, Twitch and Brainstorm from the legendary PURE Club from Edinburgh, Digit and Rasoul from San Francisco who were on Freshly Squeezed and Strictly Rhythm Records, Dave Angel and others.

The club night had 800 Members.

When I left Inverness to move to Edinburgh..I took the club with me and ran it out of Studio 24 the first and second club night in Edinburgh I had 2 x bus loads of Sneckers coming to party and got over 1000 party people a night.
