The Spectrum DJs are back at the Trades Club, Hebden Bridge, on Friday, September 19, for another Stubbings School fundraiser.

After last years full house event they are all set for another night of classic and overlooked 80s tunes and will play music from right across the musical spectrum - old school electro and block party beats to synth-pop, goth, hair metal, C86 and new-romantic classics.

The Spectrum duo said: “The crowd we get along to the Trades are brilliant, they really know their 80s music and what we really like is that fact that they will get down to some of the huge 80s pop tunes that have stood the test of time as well as obscure tracks that won’t have got much further than the alternative discos of the time.

“When you know you can go from Planet Earth by Duran Duran to something by the Cramps without clearing the dancefloor you know you’ve got a great bunch of people in.”

The Spectrum duo are more than happy to play requests and you can contact them at www.clubspectrum.co.uk.

Tickets are just £6 and you can expect to hear everything from the Human League to Grandmaster Flash, Madonna to the Sisters of Mercy and Joan Jett to Kraftwerk. The night starts at 8.30pm with a free to enter 80s music/politics and TV pub quiz. Dressing up as B-boys and Buffalo Gals, goths, rockers, new romantics and indie kids most welcome!

l At the Trades this week is the monthly quiz and curry night tonight (8pm, £5) while tomorrow night, September 5, finds former Creation labelmates Pete Fij and Terry Bickers - the latter behind the bewitching early House Of Love guitar sound - joining forces (8pm, £7/£9). My Darling Clementine, brefly plugged last week as appearing on Sunday, September 6, have cancelled.
