September 21, 1990 - Mike Knowler live at Quadrant Park, Liverpool

 

 

Liveset from the first resident DJ of Quadrant Park Mike Knowler. Mike Knowler first played at Quadrant Park on Thursday 21st December 1989 at a Christmas dance for the students of Hugh Baird College

In 1988 James Barton asked Mike and Andy Carroll to DJ at Liverpool's first regular acid house event called Daisy. The Monday nights in the State, were so popular that all nights in the State became house music oriented until it was forced to close in 1989.

After a brief stint at the Twilight Zone in Duke Street, the stage was set for Quadrant Park in Bootle. Mike first played at Quadrant Park . In 1990 he became resident DJ for the three main nights at the, with Andy Carroll sharing on Saturdays. The end of the year saw the start of the legendary Allnighters, when James Barton and John Kelly joined the team. The Quad Allnighter is fondly remembered by Scouse clubbers as the biggest thing to happen on their scene. And it was legal! The music was proper house, as opposed to techno or hardcore. A young man tragically died at the Quad, but that wasn’t why the club closed. Door prices went up, security went down and the venue needed a makeover. Punters voted with their feet and the house scene moved elsewhere. By early 1992 the Quadrant Park was no more.
