"By and large I don't think that there's any music venue that has lasted longer than the 100 Club". 75 years on from its initial debut as the Feldman Swing Club in 1942, this iconic Oxford Street basement club has seen an astonishing number of bands pass through its doors. '100 Club Stories' published by Ditto Press captures this history anecdotally from some of the inhabitants and players that graced its stage and floor. It is a glorious scrapbook of memories, photographs and club ephemera from a venue that welcomed all through its doors, be it soul boys, skinheads, punks, rockers or jazz lovers.
With narrators that include Ian MacKaye, Noel Gallagher, Jah Wobble, Chris Barber, Gaye Advert, Terry Rawlings and Alan McGee - this beautifully published book paints a vibrant picture of a vitally important venue.
the foreword by one time owner Roger Horton tells us that increasing rents and rates are placing the club under threat - let's hope it doesn't just become one more memory.
