The now defunct South London club has been honoured with one of ‘Below The River’ Magazine’s guerrilla blue plaques.
The recent demise of Cable nightclub was met with shock and sadness by the electronic community. Housed in the railway arches of London Bridge, historically the heartland of the South London rave scene, the venue had carved a niche for itself as one of the premier spots for bass music in the UK, home to nights such as We Fear Silence, Chew The Fat! and Butterz. Activity at Cable came to a sudden halt in early May, when the club’s landlords Network Rail dramatically seized control of the building via bailiffs and angle grinders, forcing its closure and the loss of 70 jobs in the process. It joined a list of well established clubs based in the SE1 railway arches that have met a similar fate.
In a mark of respect for Cable and to acknowledge its four year contribution to dance music, South London mag ‘Below The River’ has given the club one of its guerrilla blue plaques. Designed by artist Alban Lowe, the plaques are an honour the magazine has been bestowing upon ‘London’s lost nightclubs’.
