Inseparable Anglophiles Robert Plaszczyk and Magnus Carlson (Weeping Willows) run the incredibly popular Bangers'n'Mash club together with former Ride guitarist and current Oasis bassist Andy Bell
Every second Saturday they get the dancefloor moving to the baggiest Madchester, singalong Britpop and ravetastic acid house for all the Stockholm geezers in need of more excitement in their lives.
They have also brought over a steady flow of celebrities from England, including previous guests Mani, Peter Hook, Carl Barat, Dot Allison and Ian McCulloch.
Andy Lewis leaves behind Paul Weller's bass to pay a visit to Sweden.

The hyper attractive Götgatan bar Bauer has made a major commitment to getting in great DJs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Large sections of the snazzy Stockholm elite are brought together in the large bar to play everything from hip hop, Baltimore club and disco to indie rock and electro.
Address: Knast, Upplandsgatan 7
9pm - 1am
Age: 18 and over
Down among the graffiti-covered stone walls, the candlelit darkness, thick dry ice, red leather sofas and curious images of skeletons and popes, Stockholm legend Tommie X opens the doors every Friday night to his wonderfully decadent club, Blondie.
The club is a coming together of the gays and the fag hags, the media old timers and the nineteen year old barflies, bewigged anorexic monsters and confused but happy indie poppers and fashionistas.
There is room for everybody here, whether you want to dance 'til you sweat to life-affirming eurodisco or sit and make out in the black sofas.
Address: Debaser Slussen, Karl Johans Torg 1

Fritz's Corner is one of the city's oldest and most popular rock clubs. Every Saturday sees an offering of wonderfully interesting live bands from Södermalm and abroad, as well as a busy dancefloor shaking to everything from electro pop to rock'n'roll.
Live: Wintersleep (Can), Sky Larkin (UK) and Johnny Foreigner (UK).
Address: Mosebacke, Mosebacke Torg 3

YES! is, in all likelihood, the best and most ambitious hip-hop club in town. At least once a month Mosebacke is filled to bursting with people dancing, breakdancing and listening to the very best of hip-hop, along with a generous helping of breakbeats, house, R&B and soul.
The residents here are Pure P, Flaite and Don Dada and the guests are often well-known foreign stars and promising Swedish talents, either playing DJ sets or performing live.
When summer comes around, the club spills out onto the big outdoor terrace with a phenomenal view out over the whole of Stockholm.
DJ Noize and Chris Read.
