Glory days of Spiders inspire new night at Hull's Fruit club
Grumpy old hipsters are dusting off their vinyl and hitting the city's Fruit venue for a new club night.
Anyone with the likes of Blondie and Sex Pistols in their beloved record collection will embrace the new event, aimed at an older crowd.
Organiser Mike Robinson said: "We'll be playing an eclectic mix of music harking back to the golden days of Spiders, Silhouette, Room and Welly.
"It's aimed at over 30s, but of course, we acknowledge that this kind of music is also of interest to younger music lovers.

"The emphasis is strictly on a genuine love of music, regardless of genre, as we mix together soul, indie, hip-hop, house classics, reggae, punk, new wave, classic rock and beyond.
"It's not aiming to be part of a 'scene', just lovingly created for people of a certain age who still want to have a great night out with a soundtrack from heaven to dance to."
Hull act Mono Life, an electronic musician set to release his debut EP the following night, will be taking to the stage, before DJs step up to the decks.
The musician, normally known as Mark Osborne, has been living in Hull for eight years.
Mike said: "He has a bit of a rising star, having been featured on BBC Introducing, Radio One, Six Music, and has done extensive DJ work in the city.
"The guy looks as if he has going places and I'm proud that he's using my night as an EP launch party.
"He'll be performing a live set and we also have DJs including Sizzle Sisters spinning tracks."
Mike said he's organised the event because he's been living in China for the past ten years.
He said: "I've been impressed with the flurry of creativity in the city since I've been back.
"I wanted to put on a night for like-minded people who spent their formative years in great Hull institutions but everyone is welcome.
"Since I've been back it's been a bit of a nostalgic merry-go-round, seeing The Stone Roses, Blur, The Cure and New Order.
"I did one back in December but I'm hoping to do this monthly or bi-monthly in the future."
Mike says he has the backing of the guys at Fruit, who are supporting his venture.
"Sizzle Sisters have a great collection of seven inch singles and they'll be exclusively playing vinyl," he said.
"The other DJs, myself included, will be using a mixture of CDs, vinyl and MP3s.
"Two feet in the past and one in the present.
"If people want to recreate their misspent youths, and dance like it's 1990, there's probably no place better to do it."
