Zoë Blade's notebook


Megadog was a regular club night at The Rocket in London. It was formed in 1992, as a larger replacement for Club Dog. The music played at Club Dog had grown increasingly electronic in nature. By the time it had expanded to Megadog, it had basically become a monthly rave.

Megadog featured live gigs from various nascent electronic artists, including 808 State,[1] Aphex Twin,[2][3][4] Autechre,[1] Eat Static,[5][1] Fluke,[6][7][1] Meat Beat Manifesto,[8] Orbital,[5][9][10][1][11] Sabres of Paradise,[4] and Underworld.[4][6][7][1]

In 1993, Megadog went on the road, as the MIDI Circus.
