Mark Starkey recalls Scarborough's Tunnel


"The Tunnel Club was where it was at in

the nineties in Scarborough. DJ Mark

Starkey playing the choicest indie tunes


The club was the upstairs part of the

Underground nightclub and was a right

dive with an incredible atmosphere.

Upstairs comprised of a front bar with

quiet music, broken pool tables and god

knows why but thousands of arcade

machines! - again most of them broken!

The back room was known as the Tunnel

Club and that's where it all happened..

The bouncers never used to come

upstairs as there was never any trouble

and if you did open a fire door a pigeon

would fly in! Also when it rained the roof

used to leak through the three floors


After a good few years management

decided to renovate the place - worst

move ever. It then became known as the

Works and died a death within a few

months. I also made the worst DJ move

ever and started playing trendy music

when it reopened as Kings nightclub.

However to this day it is indie music that

flows through my viens.

On a recent night out I was badgered into

setting this group up with a view to

making a gig happen. Not once did I

expect all of this to come about... From

the bottom of my indie heart - thank you

The scene is set, the venue is set, the

tunes are set - now we need you!

Thanks again for all the kind words of

encouragement and the tales from days

gone by. Really looking forward to this

and to seeing as many of you as poss at

the reunion.
