The concept is simple, Morgan's Spiced have teamed up with Glasgow's Sub Club to create a variety of parties outwith the basement of Jamacia Street. Following the debut event where the new year was brought in by Lil' Louis, Harri and Domenic, the discovery series continues with an early evening party within a former fashion house loft, followed by an afterparty at the Sub Club.
Eric D and Thomas met at a party in Los Angeles, through a mutual friend working at a clothing and disco unit called 'Sarcastic'. Random chance and coincidence soon found the two of them together on the other side of the continent, pumping beats into the heart of New York City's underground scene. Despite NYC commercialism staring them in the eyes and singing it sweet siren song, Eric and Thomas, with good mates and cheap drinks in hand, kept their feet firmly planted in the fertile underground and sauntered on with a laugh. A friend's acquisition of a Chinese Rub N Tug massage-palace-cum-loft-space sparked a series of raucous parties where rooms were torn down, both literally and figuratively, as up to 400 people shuffled to their wild disco mashups. It seems only natural that out of the seedy, risqué, hell-bent indulgence, Rub N Tug was born. Next up were their lock-ins on the rammed disco floors of Passerby, now notoriously and fondly recalled as Campfire, where house music poured out of sweaty speakers 'til the after-after-hours.
Shortly after their first mix CD for aNYthing clothing company came a boisterous compilation from Eskimo called Campfire, a stylish capturing of their debauched nights/mornings at Passerby, and Rub N Tug found they’d quickly transformed from NYC scene-sters to globetrotting party starters.
Thunder Disco Club began at Virginia Place’s long neglected Lite Club. The collective hosted an array of parties in some of Glasgow’s favourite venues, including the Art School, Sub Club & the Studio Warehouse (SWG3) to name but a few, but also snapped up guest slots with RPZ, Melting Pot and the Supermaxx Disco Ballroom at The Wee Chill festival.
Thunder Disco Club seek to provide a bimonthly aphrodisiac to Glasgow’s brimming clubbing calendar and although heavily influenced by disco, they are very much about throwing a party: so if it looks good with clothes on, it will look better with clothes off. The nomadic collective strongly believe in experimenting with new concepts that give each party its own identity, spinning this out through its own brand of audio-visual ‘disco-xploitation’ as an ode to Cult Cinema and ‘Betamax inspired sleaze'.
