Anyone remember UPTJ back in the day?  I celebrated my 21st before moving to the U.S. 2 days later--Still here!!  LOVED that place--so MANY, MANY Happy memories.  Good friends, good music, good drinks, and the list goes on and on!!  Miss my hometown from SO long ago.  Everything changes I suppose.  Been so long now, I cannot hardly remember the names of the good folks that used to accompany me--except Rosemary, my dearest and best friend who passed away 20 years ago--MISS YOU ROSIE!!

Yes Linda....I do remember it...esp when it 'alternated' Allnighters with the 'Torch'........always a fave place of mine...great sounds....and a killa atmosphere.

 

There will be a few on here who have fond memories of the place I.m sure. Nice to know you still remember the 'old place' even from the US AND after all these years

Was only talking about UPTJ this very weekend. I think it only did niters for a short while,before that it was Crewe,s regular nightclub.Saw people like The Fantastics,Slade,Fleetwood Mac,The Drifters etc,.Down to the Dirty Duck first then onto UPTJ.One summer,1970 or 71,Ithink,UPTJ ran a Disco Train from Crewe to Scarborough,seriously,disco and dancing in the parcel van,music piped to all the carriages,5 hours in Scarborough,music all the way back,then finished off at UPTJ for an hour or so! Think it was a Sunday,happy days indeed.

Top place, go past it quite often, just looks the same as it did all them years ago, as Sammy states, a great atmosphere, quite a few Yorkshire people attended.

Do I remember the junction I sure do won a dance competition there one sat night Ok I do shuffle a bit but between me and you I think It was fixed. Ha ha. I was one of a Stoke crowd that frequented the place and I'm sure I saw Edwin Starr there on the very small stage. I still go there playing snooker and yes you can still make out the layout as It was then.It would be If It was to start up again which I very much doubt It, the only complete original set up surpassing the so called Wheel. Fond memories from a great venue It was the most under rated venue of It's time. Thanks Linda Gold for bringing this memory up.
