ELECT .ONCA NUMBERS Ad Lib, Glasgow, Fri 23 Jan

Numbers is one of those clubs you suspect will spawn a dozen other nights. For one there is an almost absurdly high ratio of DJs to punters. And then there’s the music itself, arrestingly distinct from almost everything else you’ll hear in Glasgow, but pulling in several familiar


This month, local act Marcia Blaine School for Girls take over proceedings, with various factions of the threesome also appearing in such other guises as the Production Unit and the Village Orchestra. Richard Chater , one of Numbers’ co-founders, says the club has its roots in Paisley’s Club 69 where many of the night’s rotating residents discovered their shared enthusiasm for electronica.

And Electronica, in all its glory, is indeed the common thread, but along with that you can expect to hear ragga, hip hop, techno, rave and a battery of other genres. ‘lt’s not just abstract electronica. We tend to mash it up,’ says Richard. ‘You might hear Autechre, Detroit techno, even some old Prince records. We just try to put a lot of stuff together and consciously keep it different.’ (Kenny Hodgart)
