Fraid you wont get much joy here TranceFixxed. There are only about 2 or 3 of us into dance/club stuff. The last club most folk here went to was probably The Cavern when some whippersnappers called The Quarrymen were starting out ;0).

Way to go Boris!

The continued existence of MOS club at least adds a jewel to the London scene in an area where it is richly needed.

As a member of the Cavern Club generation, my heart is lifted by the news that a famous music venue has been saved from the clutches of greedy property developers. I'm highly unlikely ever to cross the threshold, but I can still be glad on behalf of lovers of dance/club/whatever. I'd be surprised if Boris intervened out of the goodness of his heart, mind you.

I say that's great news......

It's been an iconic landmark of the London Scene for too long for it to vanish now..........

( Despite the music not being my thing........)

It's possibly already a listed building. Especially if it's got a phone!! And I think you merit an autobiography. But if they're 'auto', you should just sit back, and wait for it to be in the shop(s)!!!!!

Fantastic news and good for Boris, idiot to the rest of Britain but honest, hardworking and productive mayor for many, many Londoners and gaining new fans all the time.

That's the MoS and the 100 club saved. Let's campaign for The Marquee's return. The only question...mark 1, mark 2 or mark 3?

I can't agree with you Splodge, the whole area is about to be modernised/homogenised and gentrified. Hundreds of residents already sent packing. The area around the South Bank Uni and Keyworth Centre might be the only vestige of the Elephant/Borough left untouched. A bit of grit and lowlife just adds to the atmos. We don't need another Camden Town.

Never been there but my daughter has and says it is a very well run club. I am pleased it has survived even though I do not like the music played there, too many iconic music venues are being shut down and the more that are saved, regardless of what music is played there, the better.

Where would you put it Splodge? In my opinion, it's going to be nearly impossible logistically, right now you have very easy access to the tube, buses, night buses, cabs and trains. You could even stagger into Central London if you had to. Placing it along the Woolworth or Old Kent Roads means you are then reliant on buses and mini cabs, no tube or mainlines. Going East you have Bermondsey Tube but it's becoming very expensive, property wise. Same story going towards Waterloo and the Oval.
A good compromise might be the industrial estates between Brixton and Loughborough Junction but Dom Madden just spent a cool 1 million on refurbishing the Electric (formally The Fridge) Brixton, although the crowd are a bit older than MoS.
I think that the probable outcome will be that it will stay where it is, mainly because big private property developments in London have to include a percentage of 'affordable accommodation' these will be bunged right around the MoS, leaving them free to cash in on the 'luxury' apartments further/higher up.
