That's the Art School, m'dears. For tonight is the last ever party there by RECORD PLAYERZ.
R-P-Z was started at the Art School in 2002 by our good friend DJ Hushpuppy and the similarly kinky minded DJ Hifi Sean. Since then it has played host to countless great DJs and acts (Midnight Juggernauts, Avenue D, Findo Gask, Miami Horror, Van She) and hosted the Glasgow debut of some band called the Scissor Sisters, It's gone on to be the city's second biggest weekly club night (after you know who). God it really does feel like the end of a certain era, eh? Era of what I don't really know, but change is definitely in the air.

Well, Horse Meat Disco at Melting Pot last night was very busy, very hot, and very fun! HMD residents Jim Stanton and James Hillard came up to plug their new compilation (number two no less) and to bring their gay disco vibes to Glasgow's masses. Pictured above are Horse Meat DJ James Hillard, our pal David Barbarossa (Glasgow's top straight bear) and Menergy resident The Niallist. The new Horse Meat Disco compilation is available on June 21st on Strut Records, and if it's anywhere near as good as the first one, it will be a damn essential purchase for anyone who likes disco or dance music. Here's a little teaser trailer of what is in store:
This one is by the ferosh drag diva Sherry Vine, and concerns matters scatalogical.
And this one is by arch satirists Key Of Awesome - the Beyonce girl is super hot!
