THE CAT IN THE HAT.-
The Cat In The Hat Clubnight opened on Friday Sept. 6th, 1985 in the basement of The Comedy Store in Leicester Sq with selectors Barrie Sharpe & Lascelle.
The club attracted huge press coverage both in the UK and the US, with quotes such as 'ground breaking' and 'seminal'. ID Magazine quoted: “When THE CAT IN THE HAT sneezes, Clubland catches a cold”.
The Independent: “The term RARE GROOVE was coined around the Friday night’s at “THE CAT IN THE HAT” club.
Marco Cairns (Duffer). "The Cat In The Hat was known as “The Church” by the hardcore followers. What began as an underground scene eventually broke through the barriers of commerciality to become the mainstream”
Femi (Young Disciples) "Imagine a world without songs such as “Across The Tracks” by Maceo & The Macks, “Think About It” by Lyn Collins, Bobby Byrd's “I Know You Got Soul”, the forceful funk of the JB's, the quirky sweet arrangement of Foster Sylver’s “Misdemeanour”, or the chance to do it good to Charles Wright's “Express Yourself”. That was my world prior to religiously frequenting the Cat In The Hat on Friday nights circa '84-'85. There was an international cross section of the coolest in the capital, a self-acclaimed church of style, with an unorthodox soundtrack”
DJ’s such as Norman Jay, Trevor Nelson, the Soul II Soul Crew and many contemporaries & tastemakers frequented the club.
Fabio (Legendary Jungle DJ) "Mr. Sharpe You Are One Of My Heroes. I was a regular at The Cat In The Hat back in the day. You were probably my biggest inspiration of all, a stylish DJ and a man who could dance. I never missed a Friday night at The Cat In The Hat. Along with Lascelle you threw down the finest funk I had the pleasure to hear. The way you stuck to your guns at all times was inspirational; also your fashion contribution, with Duffer. You are a true living legend. ".
