September 1990 - Nightmares on Wax at Sonnys Blues club, Leeds


Boy Wonder, formerly of Nightmares on Wax, live DJ set from Sonnys Blues Club in Chapeltown, Leeds. The Friday and Saturday nights at this after-hours club in Leeds, in the late 80's and early 90's, were the stuff of legend. If the atmosphere, 70% proof Jamaican rum or the random electric shocks from the sweat covered walls didn't get you peaking like you've never peaked before, then the music would get you instead.

Sonnys was a blues terrace frequented late fridays and saturdays, nr Chapeltown in Leeds. Very proper "blues" in the strictest sense of the word, two chapeltown dollar to get in which you paid to Sonny - Who wore a full length leather raincoat and a wide brimmed hat, which said "dont f*k around in here.,"
Wax used to jock there after Joy etc in leeds...
Massive bassbins ,"Jungle Warriors", loud ,tunes, smoky ,dodgy....mustard.
