Club Integral

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



Club Integral is a music and performance club based in London and Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Club Integral began in 1990 in the South London area in order to provide an opportunity for performers at a time of closing venues and diminishing opportunities for live entertainment. (A situation that persists today).[1] It started in South London at Old White Horse in Brixton Road (now Jamm), and then at George IV on Brixton Hill (now a Tesco), Canterbury Arms in Brixton (now demolished), Grosvenor in Stockwell (no longer a venue),[2] Cambria in Loughborough Junction (now closed) and is currently based at Iklectik Arts Lab near Waterloo.

It has also operated around London in other venues, at The Others in Stoke Newington 2012 to 2017, and shorter stints at Southwark Playhouse, Cafe Oto, Whitechapel Gallery, Hackney Empire and The George in Stepney amongst others.

Outside London there was Club Integral Northern Branch at Millers Yard Gillygate York 2011 to 2012, and Club Integral Midlands Branch has been functioning for 4 years at The Edge in Digbeth, central Birmingham.[3]

Since 2008 the Club Integral Radio Show has been weekly on Resonance 104.4 FM,[4] presenting showcases of forthcoming concerts, live on-air performances and interviews with artists, including the long-running series ‘Devil’s Island Discs’, and other scripted sketch sequences.[5]

Club Integral has mainly focused on music but also has presented dance, film, spoken word, comedy, musical theatre and political debate. It has a policy of, where possible, putting newcomers on bills with more established acts, and notable performers over the years have included Harry Becket, Sun Zhuo, Fred Frith, Kazuko Hohki, David Thomas, Jeremy Hardy, Mica Levi (Micachu),[6] Daevid Allen, Cholmondleys, Shabaka Hutchings, Sarathy Korwar,[7] Mark Steel, Sean O Hagan, Acid Mothers Temple,[8] Eugene Chadbourne, Stewart Home and Michael Ray.

Club Integral has been sporadically funded over the years by The Arts Council and by The Performing Right Society and London Arts.[9]

A short film documentary on Club Integral was made in 2016.
