Stratus - memories

I went to Stratus from 1987-1989 though I'm not sure of the exact opening / closing dates. we possibly even went towards the end of 1986 though I can't recall for sure. we were in grade 12 in 1987 and one of my friends had a car so we would go there Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturday nights. sometimes even Thursdays. Tuesdays we'd generally catch the train in to go to Terminus in the Valley (it was opposite the train station on Brunswick St back then). looking back now the music was quite commercial as many of the songs were also in the Australian charts in the late '80s and didn't have the dark, bassy, acid sounds that I was to hear at parties later, but it was part of my progression through the clubs and music.

DJ Angus - 1997 Substance Magazine profile

from Substance Magazine's 1997 Brisbane article

DJ ANGUS
If you haven't heard of DJ Angus, the scratchmaster from Brisbane, then you've either been into Rock 'n Roll for the past eight years, or you've just hit legal age. Aside from being well respected for his mixing abilities, such is the class of Angus' scratching skills that they've captured the likes of John Digweed latest venture 'Intoxication' on Jackpot Records, a track which debuted at no. 1 in Mixmag. It's doing well across Australia at the moment as Digweed and Angus remain in close association with future production ventures on the horizon.

Angus' is currently resident at The Tube Nightclub, playing kickin' Hard House on Fridays @ Cheeky and Saturdays @ S.L.A.M.. You can also catch him on 4ZZZ's Crucial Cutz on Saturday evenings.

DJ Les Smith - profile 01/07/2001

:::::: DJ Les Smith ::::::

My first night as a DJ was in 1982 when I was asked to fill in a night at the Terminus Cabaret in Brisbane when the resident DJ was tragically killed in a plane crash. I enjoyed the experience so much that I stayed as a resident DJ at that club for 13 years. From there I played at all of Brisbane gay clubs until 3 years ago taking a residency at the Wickham Hotel where I am still in residence today. I am only aware of one other DJ in Brisbane who has been spinning in the clubs for as long as I have been. During all these years I have noticed a marked change in the style and direction of dance music.

My style of music has traveled down many roads over the years from disco to hard house. I currently present an eclectic style that encompasses house, trance and commercial dance. As I firmly believe that a DJ is present in a club to entertain the punters and not themselves I tend to play a diverse range of music to satisfy the various styles of dance music that my clientele demands.

I have played at numerous gay dance parties in Northern N.S.W as well as numerous parties from the Sunshine Coast to Cairns as well as on some of the Great Barrier Reef islands. I have also played at Queensland:s Sleaze Ball for the last 6 years as well as the Queens Birthday Ball for the last 17 years. The Queens Birthday Ball is the longest running gay party in the world having just presented its 40th party several weeks ago.

You can catch me at the Wickham Hotel on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

initial questions for the dance party people

some initial questions to ask the dance party people for submissions to this site. I'm out of practice with interviews so these might progress as I think of more / get replies

short version :
I'd like to speak with people and record / document their memories about the people, places, music, fashion and other aspects of the community that they can recall. how it started - how it developed - where it is now. those sorts of things. take a look at the sections / lists @ http://www.brisbanedancepartiesarchive.com/book and record any memories about these things, as well as suggestions for these lists on what I've missed or haven't got to yet.

long version :

thanks

MDMA - Manchester District Music Archive

Dennis Remmer mentioned a couple of years ago when I contacted him about his DVD project that the MDMA - Manchester District Music Archive would be a useful model site for a Brisbane archive. I've just taken another look now. it's great! I think we can do this using drupal. I'll take a look at the different content types.
