5. Cocktail Of The Month!


To celebrate the launch of both the Spacific website, and the debut album by New Telepathics, we are returning to the venue where the Spacific project began on August 23rd 2001.

Doubtless very few of you have heard of New Telepathics, but hopefully some of you will have heard of the people behind it: Darryn Harkness, Sandy Mill and Julian Reid. Darryn and Sandy used to be in Spacesuit back in ’97, while Darryn and Julian used to be in Braintree. These days, Darryn plays guitar for the rock band Serafin, while Sandy sings for Gary Numan, Placebo, Basement Jaxx, Subware, Pitch Black and East West Connection.

History lessons aside, they have come together to create a marvelous melting pot of afro-beat, funk, soul, jazz and a little slice of house with their 8 piece band. We would dearly love your support to make their debut/launch a success and so are offering anyone whose name is on the mailing list £2 off the entry price. All you will need to do is give the email address to which this newsletter goes to to the person on the door, and they will give you a special pass.

DJs will be Miss Mill, Bill Scott and the Spacific All Stars

Entry: £5 on the door or £3 with valid email address

Doors open at 8pm and close at 1am. The band go onstage at 10pm.
Cargo is at Kingsland Viaduct, 83 Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3AY- the nearest tubes are Old St or Liverpool St and it’s website is

NEIGHBOURHOOD :: PITCH BLACK with special guest SANDY MILL :: 28/10/04

We have been cheekily describing them to the UK press as like “King Tubby meets Richie Hawtin down under” but that doesn’t really do them justice. Pioneers of the electronic music scene, veterans of the festival circuit and audio-visual demons, Pitch Black need little introduction. They return to the UK with a brand new album, “Ape to Angel”, which is an absolute corker – touches of breakbeat, house, ambient and lots of dub (of course!) all wrapped in that trademark Pitch Black sound. Sandy Mill, who sings on 2 tracks on the album, will be performing with them on the night.

DJs will be Reuben Sutherland (Ebb) and Operxist (Berlin).

Tickets are £8 in advance, or £10 on the door (or £5 after midnight)
Advance tickets can be bought from Ticketweb (08700 600 100) ~

DRINKS SPECIAL: Selected beers will be £2.50 from 8pm to 10pm
42 Below cocktails will be £5 all night
42 Below shots will be £2 all night

Doors swing open at 8pm and slam shut at 2am.
Neighbourhood is at 12 Acklam Road, London W10 5QZ ~ the nearest tubes are Ladbroke Grove or Westbourne Park and it’s website is

We promise not to give your contact details to any other promoters or companies, and hope to keep our mailouts to the absolute minimum. We will only email you mid month if radical changes occur or something spectacular comes up.
