Simple by name and – hey, whaddya know? – simple by nature, Wahalla's sessions in the backroom of the muchloved Oxford institution The Bully are the stuff of clubland legend ... residents Em Williams and James Weston – both highly regarded purveyors of dirty, bass-laden house music to this most noble of parishes.
- John Mitchell writing in The Guardian about Inland Knights and their set at Simple v. Wahalla, February 2009

when you think of Oxford you think of bicycles, not mini-raves!  Simple has to be one of the best kept secrets in the country, a dark 'n' dingy club, with a riotous atmosphere to suit.  Hopefully I'll be back for some Simple action next year.  Although next time I'll be sure to bring my glowsticks!
- Mark of the Trophy Twins after his set at Simple, November 2007

Thanks a lot for having us down, we had a good night.  We were really well looked after by Nick and everyone.  It's always great to play to different types of crowds and Simple seem to get a really up-for-it mixed bag.  We look forward to coming back soon!

Thanks... It was top!
- Justin Robertson after his set at Simple, February 2006

We’ve been to quite a few nights over the last month in Brighton, Plymouth, Manchester and Oxford.... your night was the best. And I ain’t just saying that, it was (as your name suggests) Simple - but highly effective. Quality venue, quality sound system, quality beats and quality people. We’ll definitely be down again soon as it’s easy to drive back home on the night... I’ll bring a load of mates down too.
- IDJ Reviewer and Photographer at Annie Mac’s gig for Simple, December 2005.

I had a really good time, The Bully went right off!

Top 5 clubs in the South:  ‘Funk fuelled sexy sick house music for the generation with twisted melons!’  If they can knock out music policy statements like that imagine how good the actual night is.  They shouldn’t disappoint this month as DJ Touché touches down at The Bully.

A proper crowd up for proper house music
- Groove Armada's Tom Findlay after his set at Simple, February 2005 top House nights in Oxford.
- Marcus on Mac Chat, BBC Radio 1 website

Top 5 clubs in the South:  [Simple.] As the name suggests this really is going down in the backroom of a pub but with Mutiny on the decks who gives a fuck.  Terms including roadblock, hands in the air and frenzy don’t come close.  You’d best just visit!
