Crash Nightclub

Crash Nightclub
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, August 22, 2006 - 18:58

All this talk of house music has reminded me of a very special club that once thrived in Durban, and will always have a place in my heart. Yes, the one and only, it's Crash nightclub.

Situated in the Durban station, Crash was a pop-art themed progressive house club on the one side, and a semi-alternative pop-rock venue on the other. It was divided in two by a thin corridor in the middle, and the layout of each side was a mirror image of the other, with a dance floor, bar and chill-out area. Downstairs there was a snazzy VIP bar and another dance floor, which was more like a 'regulars' bar, as the bouncer used to let in many people that simply spent a lot of time at the club.

And what a jol it was! Crash owned Friday and Wednesday nights for years, and with top events happening all the time, it was not uncommon for Ministry Of Sound to pop in for a visit and throw out a few shirts as they mixed tracks on the vinyls alongside the famous resident, DJ Mimi Kesaris.

“It's going to be a fine night tonight... it's going to be a fine day tomorrow...”

Who remembers that track? I still get all nostalgic when I hear it.

The place was seriously cheap to get into, as you can see on the flyer - it was R5 before 9pm for crying out loud! People would mill around in the one half of the club, the alternative rock side, and only at midnight would the other house side open. The tunes were infamous for their progressive nature, always dipping down before building up to a spectacular climax, and sending the crowd into mass hysteria.

If you needed a break from the madness, there was always the take-away restaurant in the Durban station, where the tables and chairs were filled with people chilling out, sometimes puking everywhere from too much alcohol and drugs, but generally having a good time!

Crash was one of the first clubs to have Playstations! There was the one game where you could shoot bubbles at the roof, and the other was a racing simulator if my memory serves me correct. What an amazing draw card that was, people would often crowd around the stations just to gawk at whoever was playing and comments would fly about the 'realistic' graphics!

The club itself was an absolute legacy. Everyone had the Crash stickers on their bumpers, and the Crash compilation CD was one of the most well known discs available at the time. If ever there was a peak of house music, Crash was the tip of the mountain, setting the standard for all other venues in the country.

Straight from the horse's mouth... Mimi Kesaris talks about how house is not what it once was:

"He admits that house music, in particular deep house, is not as popular as it was 10 years ago"

Oh wow...hearing those names and everyone elses memories makes me feel so energised and nostalgic.
The Rift was amazing...the Station meant the world to me. My twin sister and twin friends would lie to the folks and hitch hike from Hillcrest every Friday night ( very stupid as 15 year old girls!!)
amazing memories....the scene changed to a more 'housey' scene as we graduated to student status and we loooved Crash. Glad to share some memories...

Yeah the Rift was a legendary place. The best joll Durban ever had before house music really hit SA shores. Crash was great too owned by the same guy that owned The Rift. And of course there was Retros at the hotel which was Sol Kersners first hotel and funnily enough my ballies used to joll there when they were young.... Ahhhh those were the days.....

After the L.A. closed, that was pretty much it, then - downtown with your underage ass, to St Georges' Street, which back then was marginally more respectable than it is now, which is to say not very. Nevertheless, it was an epic club with dark and fierce tunes, HOT goth chicks and sick graf on the walls of superhero's and shit. It always seemed like you were way too young and there were some hardcore lurkers in the shadows glaring you down, but man, the tunes were rockin' and the party poppin'...we used to backdoor the joint by climbing over their back-alley fence, through some barbwire and up a drainpipe into the girls' toilet. That was funny. Or else, if you were feeling bravedrunk enough after drinking across the road at Gradwell's, your lily-white ass would saunter into the Belgica Hotel and make like you owned the place..and simply walk into the jol from the staff entrance. What we didn't know at the time (and thank feck our parents never knew) was that the ANC Youth League had their underground headquarters at the Belgica, which paints a good picture of how crazy this country is. Mind you, it was probably safe as houses for that reason...who would want to fuck with those o's back then? Anyway. Beers were R2, and entrance was R5. And that still seemed like it was steep. I remember one time my mate was thrown down the stairs because the bouncer thought he was too fucked...he'd fainted after smoking a thick'un...he bounced all the way down that looong flight of stairs. Funny as fuck.
Then it closed down, and Crash rose from its flames...before Crash...Sand Pebbles...The Bridge...Gatsby's...Monk's Inn...Cattleman...too many to rightly recall...were only there if you can't remember it...sounds about right.

The force is strong with this one...

Jislaaik. Early daze. I remember my mates Dave, Dom and The Lappies and I painted Gatsby's - mad acid faces and flames and tribal stuff and wierd song lyrics. I think we got paid, like, 200 bucks for the whole jol. Whoohoo, big spender. Probably got spent round the corner at Monk's or the Balmoral's 60's Bar...back when wetties were like 2 rand a drink. And they had Happy Hour two-for-the-price-of-one...eish, that's just asking for trouble. Wonder why they don't do that nowadays? Hmmm.

Subject:  Good old Club Scene
Author:  jeggerjay
Date:  18 March, 2007 - 19:39

I find it hard to explain to the younger generation of Durbanites just how good the selection and atmosphere of the clubs were in Durban abt 13 years ago. There was a huge selection, and they generally were all packed.

I remember the following weekly routine, when I was 16/17/18:
Monday - Banana Joes (Berea Rd)
Tuesday - The Med
Wednesday - Callico's
Thursday - The Med again
Friday - Always Callico's, then Stars Cafe (although it didn't last too long), then the best ever Sand Pebbles (until it closed down), then Retros, then back to Callico's.
Saturday - usually a repeat of Friday
Sunday - Joe Kools.

Then we had good old Red Dog (town one) and Harleys. Wicked places! Crash. The Station. Berea Inn Hotel. Chaos, Bourbon Street, Nightfever. etc etc.

It is a little sad how the club scene has deteriorated in Durban, I think a good few of us should invest and re-create the Durban that once was!

Does anybody have any pics that they have scanned of the clubs (inside and out) of those days?

Thanks

Haha, can't believe people still remember! I used to DJ at all three clubs: The Station, then Crash, then Extreme Breaks. My mate Rich used to spin at Retros, along with Kevin.

The Station has some of my best memories. Eish, I went to The Station religiously every Friday and Saturday, even before I started working there! Still have the old dog tags they issued for club membership ... anyone else still remember the tunnel connecting the front to the back?

I remember working with Trevor (owner of the Station) and Lewis (one of the other DJs) and a couple other guys and the architects smashing down walls and decorating the entire place for the Crash launch. Man, we were still painting when the doors opened, hehe. Was bummed when the Station closed though, Crash just wasn't the same for me.

If I remember right Crash was launched by Gary and Trevor in a partnership, and Gary owned Retros and eventually closed it down. By that time I'd gone completely triphop, bigbeat, nuskool and breaks ... Toine, myself and Rich hooked up and started playing gigs together all over the place (basically anywhere that would have us hehe).

Doubt anyone here remembers Roxies where we first started upstairs with Hen and Jess. Hen and Jess went on and launched Bedlam (trance) where Retros used to be, and we played in the back room.

Still, highlight for me was Extreme Breaks in the downstairs area where Crash VIP bar used to be. Ah man, greatest time of my life. Had some real benders there. Great people, great tunes (ok, I'm biased there hehe). Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Sheesh, yeesh and eish...the memories...
I remember one KS jol at Virginia beach, and then a couple at Wilson's Wharf, which now hosts...a strip of semi-kak restaurants and a really kak flea market. Quite a posse of nutters - Hen, Jess, Pete, Kieth H, and me too, part-time. I drew a design for the Moonburn flyer, ekshualleh. Then those anarkohippies took over and tried to make a go of it as a waterside permaculture jol..which went down like a sack of sinkers when the landie found out that them thar ippies wuz growin the erb. Arr, me hearties, and that was that, then.
It was shortly after the end of KS that Bedlam became a feature. Which was great, cos it was both breaks and trance and nutjobs from far and wide across the city had a new home.

Gotta agree with you on the Xtreme speech, Skekrou - they were hands down some of my favourite gigs ever. Even though I had a broken leg for a while, the tunes were so kick-ass hot that I still gave it jiggy on the side! Thick, thick basslines, snake-crazy percussion and an...ermm...'uplifted'..state o mind, all made for ye olde traditional dancefloor thickage!

WOW> - I started a face book group. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6142706907

I had dog tag number 11 I think. I remember it cost me R10.00. IT was the best investment I ever made. I made so many friends there. I remember a chick called Crystal who was the HOTTEST chick I ever "Grabbed". Yes thats right we used to try to Grab chicks in those days. I would park off on the stage and weave my drunken magic.

If anyone remembers I had a T Shirt with the words, "ELVIS IS DEAD" on the back, and some others too.

The thing that held me to the station was not only the good times and hot under age chicks, but the sense that I felt safe there. Generally the place was a pretty laid back jol.

Once Crash arrived along with house music and the boozy grunge era finally faded away and E and C hit the scene, It all changed for me.

I was accused of snitching on the bouncers for dealing and got my ass kicked for it. Well after that I kept a low profile.

If anyone remembers me then join the facebook group or drop me a line.

Crystal, if youre out there, then HOWDIE babe!

got so many memories of crash.. getting asked for ID two days after turning 18 (so stoked!), playstation, going off to the nude girls (does anyone remember the two nights they played at crash on a monday and tuesday night?), the queue that went forever to get into the jol.. too many memories to mention...

does anyone remember the sunday sessions at the Java@Java internet cafe on marriot rd? I remember watching chris letcher and matthew vd want there... also funky's in the BAT centre was cool... decent band every weekend.. watched sugardrive play to about 10 people, also one insane nudies gig at funky's, and too many at the bat hall...

remember going to jamies in the first month it opened in pine street... including staff there were probably around 15 people there, myself and my mates still payed the cover (I think it was R5) and jolled there the whole night...

one thing I seriously miss is legends.. spiga just isn't legends, way too pretentious... started a few nights there, and ended off way more at old Leg End... even remember walking home from there, when I realised my mates I had gone there with had gone home, the mates who I bumped into there had gone, and the place was closing up and I was still talking shit with the waiters...

the playhouse raves also rocked... those times have changed... things just aren't the same anymore... but not all is lost... there are still the peeps organising parties, keeping things going... durban has always had its own underground scene that still thrives with a dedicated hardcore following... a lot of the people that made durban rock back in the day are still around... just older and with proper jobs... this town can still mix it with the best... it just doesn't do it as often anymore...

WoW, I remember the Station very well, Retros and Crash and Bedlam...although I think the Rift and Station were top of the Hit Parade (personally) followed by a gargantuan Johnni's Roti the size of a small baby......sigh......I remember also being very inventive with what I wore/hair/makeup etc that used to be so exciting, nowadays I'm so much more...hmm "toned down" I guess would be the right term.
Anyway, if anyone is interested I'll be playing some tunes at SNAP! next Friday (26th Oct) with the whole new and used indie vibe, so you can get your bobbisocks awn and listen to some good tunes like the oulde days (R10 cover charge and red square drinks promo). Its a small but cozy venue for those who haven't been before..

On the corner was Monk's, which was...seedy. Only reason anyone has good memories is because they were pissed as a raccoon on R5 jugs of piss-weak lager.
Round on Pine Street was The Med, with ye olde flashing disco floortiles and atrocious Italo-house tunes. Big Tits, 'He's Got a Big Red GTO', all that dire Hi-Energy stuff.

Jislaaik. Just remembering that has left me traumatised.

This can't be much worse than Flagons & Dragons up from that kakhole Billy the Arse, I ended up there a few months ago and sang karaoke with a black wig on (deleting much of my streetcred - I have since been regaining my superpowers slowly...), the freq's and idol-wannabes/sleazy greasy old-man things that hang out at that place are terrifying, I still am traumatised when relive this experience. However...I'm sure there was a reason why we were all so wasted and it seemed like a good idea at the time....

Used to live round the corner from this place...went there a couple of times, to my eternal regret. Surprising that such a cluster of lowlife could be found in the fairly upmarket Morningside area...dodgy geezers leaning into their beers, hookers hanging off each other and a rabble of breekers clustered round the pool table giving outsiders dark scowls...it was like the bar in Easy Rider when the hicks decide to give the longhairs a beating. Classy!
Mind you, the Willowvale is hardly the Hilton...went there Saturday to do a preconnaissance for this Saturday's NONONO!!!
The local hookers were hanging out on the balcony, chucking quart bottles around and threatening to stab each others' eyes out with their high heels.

Durban. It's full of surprises.

yes! yes! I remember the last gig at the Willowvale,there were these "bergie"-type hobos who were blatantly locals or part of the crack-hoor clientele, and thought this party was the best thing since sliced cheese. On one occasion i felt some hands around my waist pulling me around and thought it was a mate, and turned to face this wild-haired toothless reeking windowlicker who proceeded to follow myself and other poor female patrons around that night - it was a wee bit of a nightmare to be honest although I spose one can say they add to the "local" flavour of the jol ( just as long as theres no touchy-touchy!).
