Turnmills RIP

If you're not there already, tonight Farringdon club Turnmills is closing it's doors for the last time. I haven't a clue why it's closing (I heard about it on George Lambs show earlier in the week), but it's always been a club I've had a right laugh in, even if I haven't been for about 5 years. Turnmills was one of those clubs I used to read about in Mixmag when I was a lad in the West Midlands. When I moved to London (about 10 years ago) it was one of the first places I headed for, where I could be found dancing to the sound of the Heavenly Social (later Jukebox) and Headstart. I even stuck around a couple of times for gay night Trade, once the straight nights had finished. While it wasn't the tidiest of clubs, it's heart was in the right place, and they've played host to many a dance music luminary, including the Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Underworld, Faithless and various DFA'ers. It's a shame to know it won't be there anymore, so if you're off there tonight, have a dance for me too, OK?
