About this project

Dummy of what the book will look like
Dummy of what the book will look like

The idea of this book started life, like a lot of things, down the pub. We were four mates and regular gig goers, moaning about the prospect of yet another music venue being forced to close. 

And then it came to us. Two of us - Darren Russell and Kingsley Davis are regular photographers at the 100 Club. Stephen Dowling is a music writer, and Neil Pond is a publishing project manager. That meant we had an archive of photographs taken at London's most iconic venue, spanning four decades, and writing and design experience as well. The 100 Club's 75th anniversary was approaching, so we saw the opportunity to create a high-quality photographic book that would not only celebrate this wonderful venue, but also include the voices of the people who help make the 100 Club what it is.

Have a look at the pledges to see how you can still include a personal memory in the book.

What we are creating is a high-quality coffee table photography book. It is the first of its kind – a photographic record celebrating Oxford Street's 100 Club and the place it has in the hearts and minds of generations of music fans all over the world.

'One Hundred Nights at The 100 Club' features photographs from Kingsley and Darren's 100 favourite gigs at the venue, most of which have never been published before.

The book also includes interviews with many of the featured acts, audience members, 100 Club staff and Roger, Richard and Jeff Horton, who between them have been running the club since the mid-1960s , Jeff still runs the club today.

Have a look through the pledges to see how you can include a personal memory in the book.

We aim to self-publish the book by Autumn 2017.

THE BOOK

The book will be 240 pages, hardcover with a dust jacket, printed on high quality silk art paper and 285×240mm in size.

REWARDS

All books and prints will be wrapped in protective sleeving and be delivered in a cardboard corrugated postal box. (Postage and packaging charges apply).

THE 100 CLUB

What's so special about 100 Club? Ask the generations of music fans who've queued rain, shine or Oxford Street Christmas crowds to get in. Over the past 75 years it has been a staple of London's nightlife, playing host to comedians, magicians, anti-apartheid fundraisers and the longest-running Northern Soul club night in the world.

But it is music – from almost any genre you care to name – that has made the 100 Club known across the globe. The stage has played host to everyone from The White Stripes to Guru's Jazzmatazz, Madness to the Kings of Leon and Chas & Dave and many more.
