Only five years? There are times when it seems as if the Body­tonic crew have been around since the dawn of time. The busiest club run­ners the cap­i­tal has ever known have put on bang­ing club nights, helmed stages at fes­ti­vals, run a boozer, launched an art gallery, taken the Body­tonic gospel to for­eign parts and set up a cou­ple of la­bels. This week­end, they go back to where it all be­gan with a se­ries of very spe­cial club nights.

Tonight’s Stereotonic fea­tures a pa­rade of smash­ing housers with Jori Hulkko­nen, Charles Web­ster’s new Ver­sion project, At­jazz, Greg Wil­son plus lo­cal lu­mi­nar­ies.

Satur­day night’s Pogo sees techno king­pin Andy Weatherall (be­low) get in the ring with The Red­set­taz in the main room, while long-stand­ing Pogo-er Nic James is in the Pub and Donal Di­neen takes charge of the live room. For those still stand­ing, Sun­day means the Twelve all-dayer in the Bernard Shaw. JIM CAR­ROLL Can’T See ThaT? CaTch This Sex Pis­tol Glen Mat­lock hooks up with Sassy Sue (Dublin, Fri­day) and funk big gun Sweet Charles hits town (Dublin, Satur­day)
