November 17th 1985

From 1985 until 1993 Jo Bartlett and Danny Hagan put bands on in Surrey and Hampshire (and once in London) as The Buzz Club. This poster is from the first ever one - That Petrol Emotion and The Mighty Lemon Drops at The Agincourt in Camberley, Surrey November 1985.

Jo and Danny were in Go! Service and Bluetrain who released 12"s on Dan Treacy’s (of The TV Personalities) Dreamworld label. Often playing gigs at Dan’s Room At The Top club, above The Enterprise pub in Chalk Farm, London. These gigs proved to be an inspiration to start The Buzz Club. The first one featured label mates The Mighty Lemon Drops and Geoff Travis from Rough Trade was in the audience to see them. That Petrol Emotion headlined the show, Go! Service had supported them a few months before at The Room At The Top.

He Is….Majestic and our Penance; A Review of Ghost’s Meliora

Ghost are not strangers to the bombastic theatricality of Hollywood Satanism made popular by movies such as Rosemary’s Baby and The Omen back in the ’70’s and ’80’s. It’s what made them rocket from a mild buzz band playing in clubs, to selling out bigger and bigger concert venues with each passing year. And Meliora is a testament to this. Meliora is Latin for “better” and better it is, and I…

He likes quiet places sometimes despite the fact that he is loud most of the time, walks through crowded streets, goes into buzzing clubs and keeps that cycle a thing of his own. Calm and quiet are opposites to what he is or what he does on a daily basis. Most of the times, he doesn’t think it suits him but his head is kind of fuzzy and he might have drunk a little too much the night before and sleeping in on those days usually does more harm than good.

The chair he pulls after ordering his tea screeches a little against the marble floor, making whoever is sitting on the table next to his to give him a strange look. It’s quick and Ilhoon almost doesn’t notice. His head doesn’t hurt but he knows he wouldn’t be able to run his eyes through a newspaper or even focus on a TV screen for long. No TV means he needs to get himself entertained with something else and people usually come in handy at times like those.

He looks for the number in his contact list that has gotten so long that makes him think he needs to sort it out again. There are so many people he doesn’t even talk to anymore and some others who are not even around - some of them, actually gone as in dead. It was something he had grown strangely used to. He kept the numbers he could have - the ones that no one would care for if he was ever unlucky enough to be caught doing something he shouldn’t. He wouldn’t want to be the link they needed to those he cared for so he went through the trouble of memorizing the ones he couldn’t risk having recorded.

One finger swipes through the screen, selects the number and taps at the ‘call’ icon. The waitress comes over, places the large tea cup in front of him, tells him to enjoy and leaves while he waits to hear someone else’s voice. It comes after a long while and he wonders if she was busy or just wondering if she should pick up or not. “Took you a while noona. It’s too early to be busy.” He says, chuckling after. It’s 9 AM, he can see it on the clock hanging on the wall in front of him and he kind of expects her to ask him why he is up. He is never up before noon anyway.

“Did I wake you up?” He picks up his cup, takes a sip as he waits for her reply along with her curiosity over his morning endeavor. “Do you want to buy me lunch today?” It’s only 9AM, but he is pretty sure he can stuff himself if someone is willing to treat him.

Mega City Four were a local band, hailing from Farnborough, just down the road from The West End Centre, where we ran The Buzz Club. Brothers Danny and Wiz had originally been in a band called Capricorn, who I’m fairly sure we also put on.

Mega City Four were formed in 1987 and when Steve Lamacq started championing them in the‘N.M.E’ and John Peel started playing ‘Miles Apart’ on Radio 1, we knew we had an exciting local band at last!

They played The Buzz Club when their debut album ‘Tranzophobia‘ was released. Support that night came from another band very much from the same scene, The Senseless Things.

Mega City Four went on to release seven albums before splitting up in early 1996.

I bumped into Wiz at the Reading Festival in the late ’90s and he told me his favourite tee shirt was his Buzz Club one. He said he’d been offered money for it in Canada and refused to sell it!

It was incredibly sad and shocking to hear that Wiz collapsed in a rehearsal for his band Ipanema and died the next day in December 2006.

This is from their appearance on The Word in 1992, performing ‘Stop’
