Zap Club, Brighton
Zap Club July Listings
In July the Zap Club programme was dominated by acid music. In addition to the Coco Club on Saturdays, Frenzee was launched on Thursdays and the listing carried adverts for an acid house trip to Spectrum, the Heaven on Earth Acid House night at London’s Heaven Club and an acid house Bank Holiday spectacular at the Pink Coconut.
In contrast, there was a night of pure performance poetry from Ted Milton whose “contortions of mind, body, and voice add up to a serious grudge against existence” and lots of comedy from the likes of Patrick Marber, Sean Hughes, Olrod and Eddy, Brenda Gilhooly and John Hegley.
