Brother Cleve

 
last updated: 29 May, 1998 1:00 am
Please note the following changes in Brother Cleve's DJ schedule. Saturnalia  has been canceled and Futura Dreams has been rescheduled to Thursday nights. Swank remains on Wednesday nights. See the Swank listing for scheduled special events. (Swank is now sponsored by Camel Cigarettes and WFNX-FM!) 

How Cleve manages to keep all this hopping, score soundtracks for Cinemax,  while recording a new album with Combustible Edison (out in September!) is amazing to me. Well, as his beautiful wife Diane would explain it, "It's because he's Brother Cleve!" That's good enough for me.

Billing itself as an "erotic discotheque", 'Swank!' moves into the shadow of Fenway Park on Boston's famed nightclub row. Taking advantage of a full stage, great sound system, and multiple video monitors, 'Swank' will present something different every week: live bands that fit under the lounge umbrella, erotic fashion shows, art exhibits, and films, and will have continuous video presentations of everything from Scopitones, porno trailers, blaxploitation and kung fu films, and any other demi-monde items we deem fit. Surrounding all this will be a funky, Now Sound blend of mostly late 60's/70's go-go styles, along with today's electronic grooves.  
Dress for pleasure. Grand opening night, January 21st; featured performers, AstroSlut, who mix French Pop, Sound Gallery grooves and vintage synths under the gyrations of vocalist Lounge Laura

A very hip bistro/lounge in the heart of Boston's loft filled Leather District, Oskar's draws it crowd from the many artists who live in the area, along with neighboring South End bohos, and the stylish Euro crowd. Futura Dreams will feature Br. Cleve spinning the first 2 hours with down tempo, trip hop and loungecore.  
Mark Flynn will take over till closing with a more hardstep and techno sound. (Mark hosts a Monday night show on WZBC 90.3 FM) Mark and Cleve did radio together in the early 80's, co-hosting the infamous "Sports Palace" punk sports talk show, which centered on professional wrestling, roller derby, etc., all set to the soundtrack of Mark's exotica/ez records. One of the original champions of the music, he owned every Martin Denny record by 1983. His interest in electronic music began in the mid-80's, with the advent of Detroit techno. Enjoy fine cocktails, cigars from the humidor, and the jet set in this comfortable, attractive space.
