My recollection is really hazy as it was only a couple of times.

Think I went upstairs and room was pretty narrow and not that big. Wasn't it next to that white cinema?

Also I think it was on a weekday. As you say mainly soul but odd pop record. Lot of Motown.

My mate took me on back of SX200 and I think there was this rockers cafe [Black Cat maybe - can't remember] just down the street and as we were going back to Hazel Grove we got a bit of hassle.

If I knew we were going to be talking about it 40 odd years down the line I woulda paid more attention!

Great venue. I first heard Chris Hamilton I've Got to Have Your Love and the Marvelettes Only Your Love Can Save Me there.

Would love to attend a reunion.
Anyone want to adopt a young soulie?

Oh to have been as avid a photo taker as I am now as I would definitely have some shots of everyone that's posted!! It did prompt me to look for anything 'soulie' at all and only managed to find one photo of myself taken in 1973...that badge took me ages to embroider by hand!

Although Browns in Levenshulme was my first introduction to any sort of club scene back in 1968 Pendulum will always be my favourite soul club.......first went to the one in Hardman Street....memorable for me as that was my maiden name but much preferred the scruffy basement, concrete floor? and swigging bottles of Newcastle Brown.....after way too much home brew!!

At the time most of the folk I knew were local from Manchester, Stockport, Bury, etc but strange to think that I've since met many of you guys posting on here in the last ten years or so!! One of my best friends married Dave White and can see her now sitting near the decks with him......both are now happily re-married........ another went out with Martyn Ellis for a while......in fact I spent my 18th birthday out in Manchester with them both then went to the Mecca the next night......having to pretend to be married to get in a B&B...how times have changed!

Lots of familiar names and loads of clubs mentioned that I used to frequent.......does anyone on here remember the Keystone...I think it was somewhere in a Salford precinct but never yet found anyone who went there or can remember who ran it..... happy days.......

I still have a Pendulum tee shirt that Barry gave me at the Birch in Ashton a few years ago...not quite sure why he had them done...... will always have very fond memories of Pendulum and the characters that used to go, so many of whom are sadly in the great soul club in the sky.................thanks for bringing back the memories.....Linda x

ME & MY SISTER ANGELA (THIS IS SHEILA BY THE WAY) USED TO GO TO THE KEYSTONE REGULARLY!
OUR MAIDEN NME WAS DAMER, IF ANYONE REMEMBERS US! WE ALWAYS HAD A GREAT TIME THERE, ALTHOUGH AS DERECK SAID,IT WASNT ALL SOUL MUSIC.
THE TWO RECORDS THAT HAVE STAYED IN MY MEMORY FROM THERE, WERE,"NEXT IN LINE " HOAGY LANDS &"OUT ON THE FLOOR" DOBIE GRAY.THERE USED TO BE A BLOKE THERE CALLED "JED" NEVER KNEW HIS SURNAME,
JUST REMEMBER HIM DANCING TO THOSE RECORDS SWINGING HIS "MULLET" HAIR & CLAPPING FURIOUSLY!
WE WERE FROM CRUMPSALL THEN, BUT USED TO FREQUENT SALFORD PUBS & CLUBS.
THE YOUTH CLUB WE WENT TO WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER "NORTH SALFORD YOUTH CLUB" WAS ONE OF OUR FIRST FORAYS INTO NORTHERN SOUL,"FUNKY STREET" "I SPY" & " NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK" OH! HAPPY DAYS!

There was a previous Pendulum at Hardman Street, off Deansgate - upstairs over the Victoria Pub. thats from the newspaper clipping. mark


does anyone on here remember the Keystone...I think it was somewhere in a Salford precinct ....Linda


Bloody Nora, I never thought I'd see the Keystone mentioned anywhere, very fond memories-even though I never went in. Tony


the keystone was a pub wasnt it


all from the comfort of your own keyboard...

Victoria, Hardman Street. © Frank Heaton/Neil Hardman

This 1968 photo from the Image Collection shows the Victoria Hotel on Hardman Street looking east towards Deansgate. Joddrell Street to the left and much of Hardman Street has been swallowed up by the huge Spinningfields development, and the Victoria Hotel has also made way. The Victoria was home to Old Fashioned Love Band, a Jazz/big band group and BBC Radio Manchester broadcast a show from the pub in 1972.

Keystone.jpg
Keystone, Market Way, Salford, 1990. © deltrems at flickr.

The Keystone was originally meant to be called "The Dollies" but owners Tetley decided to name this octagonal-shaped lock-up pub on Market Way on the Precinct. Over two floors it had roaring twenties dcor downstairs with keystone cops black and white films on screens. Up the spiral staircase took you to a disco area. By 1984 the decoration had changed to 1940s style. Burtonwood took the Keystone in 1992 but a couple of years later it was closed, and then demolished by 1998.

Derek,
I know Manchester in the 1968 was a bit black and white and well behind London but we did have Ford Cortinas and Anglias not Model T Fords and all walking around in DMob suits(well not all of us) .
The Victoria pub was a new building mid 60's just behind the evening news building. I think someone got stabbed on a night in there that's why it moved to the MSG.
Regards
Brian

most clubs n pubs in Salford played soul back then. The Keystone was great, but a tad fruity to say the least! The Cattle Market was even fruitier, with tales of the dj complete with dj box being launched down the stairs one nite! Even Salford Rugby club has Dougie James soul trian on a tues.

Hi Bernie, your name rings a distant bell, do you know the Warburtons-Walt & Ricky, lived on Newury st. before moving to Holcombe Close ??

Sammy Turnbull also rings a bell, pretty sure I was at St. Clements with Dave Silcock.

Some of the Salford Youth Clubs I remember
North Salford-pretty much opposite Broughton Baths
Peter Greens- was on Silk Street estate I think...
Whit Lane.
Cromwell road.

Can't remember Reggies-where was that ??

and of course, you must have done The Pembroke Halls :D

To me the the epitome of underground (literally) northern club culture.

Sweaty, cramped atmosphere characterised by walls dripping with condesation when it was at it's hottest. Bottles of Newcastle Brown behind the bar

First when in '72 and continued throughout until it closed.

Barry Tasker was certainly an underestimated DJ but Richard, in my opinion, enhanced the club's reputation when he joined.

For what ever reason I always specifically associate the Pendelum with Mr Flood's Party, Duke Browner and Christine Cooper.

Great times at a top venue.
