Most Scary Allnighter back in the 70s

Take the flame inside you burn, burn below, fire feed and fire the seed and make the baby grow.

We live in West Cornwall where it's by no means unusual to see people dancing naked through fire, after all, it's much too dangerous with your clothes on! 

🔥

I have walked on hot coals, though I gave up jumping through hoops for anyone many moons ago.

En route to Wigan by train looking out the window and seeing a giant bonfire with people dancing around it naked in the Warrington area, that was kind of scary, in that I hadn't taken anything that night that would induce hallucinations, well not that early.

Strange people them wire' folk. Unfortunately  I had to go Warrington bank quay station to get the train to the casino.  Widnes and warrington didn't mix very well at the time due to rugby league rivalries . Lots of really good friends from there now. How times change. Soul music really does bring people together

To be honest, I am now more interested in the identity of Tattoo Dave's Warrington Wiccans and Kegsy's Matlock Marauders than Dogsbody's mystery gang.

To be honest I'm not sure if they were Matlock or Mandrax Marauders.

I used to be very good friends with old Mandy. A capricious bitch with a kick like a mule sometimes though. Had to be careful with her. 😂 😂 😂 Her daughter, Moggy, was far softer.

And compared to Sammy Seconal, Terry Tuinol was an absolute c**t. Put me in Salford Infirmary for an overnight stay once. Scary days back then.

Nancy Nembutol could be a bit tricky too.

Aah, little Nancy. Only went out with her the once. Bit lightweight for me back then, but I'm sure she'd floor me today 😂😂😂

My ‘evil’ mother-in-law ran that ward at Salford Infirmary, Joey. You’ll know her...Sister Kathleen Flanningan.

Lol. I can't remember even speaking to anyone. Just wanted to get out of there as soon as I woke up and saw that my bed had bars!!!!!! Guy called Brian Hassan carried me in there apparently, after two all nighters, two all dayers, half a ton of gear, and then two Tuinol at 9pm on the Sunday. Stupidity of youth. Second time I OD'd, and the very last time I ever played with barbs. Dealt with the come downs "au naturele" after that.

Only ever used to do one tuinol after a incident on the train from Wigan wallgate station . Got two from one of the girls who had hid them in her knickers because of the squad,  the caps had started to melt because of the heat and moisture. Without  thinking I necked them only for them to stick to the roof of my rather dry gear mouth. No drink or toilet on the train to wash them down. Man it was the worst thing I have ever tasted.  Away with the fairies later and didn't give a flying fcuk.  So I only ever had one after that.

You tell 'em mate. The way some of these people carry on you'd think it was a W.I. circular!

 

I think you are picturing things a little on the skew. These guys didn't see themselves as "hard men" and they didn't just pick "young lads" as their victims. Anyone was fair game. You have to remember most people don't want  to spend the night in A&E getting their back / front / face sewn up just 'cos they didn't hand over a few measly blues or a couple of quid. They were predators who mostly used an area not too far from their home town to ply their trade. And they worked by using their reputation and,or outnumbering their  victims. When you say you wouldn't have come across them, even if you never went for a pee all night and never carried gear, chances are you would have come across them.They didn't hand out calling cards at the start of the evening!

Mm, a few measly blues. What wouldn't I do for a ......................................

Anyone remember that female DJ, Stella (behind the) Dex  ?????? (Or is that a tad TOO subtle for some?). Ponder(ax) that one for a minute or two, then Fil(on)e it under WTF. 🙂

Nice try, but no cigar!!! 🙂 Have to go on the downers if you want to sleep on it though. Try asking Val and Libby, they used to help enormously.

Lol, forgot them/that. Never liked 'em that much. After a deep and meaningful relationship with old Mandy, everything else paled into insignificance really.

I'd like to run this one past the older readers out there.

What was the most scary club anybody went to that was well known back in the early days? (I don't mean some bar in a village that nobody has heard of). Now this place can also be a place you really dug, or it can be a place you really hated. One of the reasons for this question is that in my era there was a gang (everybody knew about them) that made life a real pain for some people, yet some were never bothered by them, but they are never mentioned in these forums, as if the didn't exist. If you know who I mean put in your reply. If you don't, fine.Just put your reasons for your reply.

When we walked from macclesfield to Stafford, with a odd lift in the process, me and my mate went to the top of the world in Stafford, the feeling inside wasnt friendly and top it off two bouncers came over and wanted to know what drugs we had on us. We left not long after and never went back.

Got to say I'm really enjoying these drug tales of yore. It never gets tired.  I agree with BabyBoy/Lass that this thread now has much more potential yet seems to be dying early. Keep them coming. In particular I'd like to hear a few "white knuckle" escapades. For example, maybe you were hallucinating and almost killed a close family member with a kitchen knife. Or maybe you lost control of your bodily functions in a busy railway station concourse and then slipped over. You know the sort of thing - it was pretty horrendous at the time but you can laugh about it now 😀. I never took drugs but reading some of these comments I'm kind of  wishing I had dabbled a little. Although, given my slight OCD personality if I had I'm pretty sure I'd be an old crack-head today. But oh, what memories I'd have. (and paying the odd visit to Crystal METHhews no doubt (see what I did there?😉. ).

More please. it's always fresh

I’ve just read the book “the ascent” ( about the cycling careers of Stephen Roche and Sean Kelly ) absolutely nothing about the soul scene in there at all , but Christ the injecting of amphetamines was the absolute norm of the day for them guys ( in the 80s ) nobody batted an eyelid at it ! Funny how they never got raided at race meetings by the DS ! Now if it had been a soul event I think it would have been different, just couldn’t help make the comparable whilst reading the book, there seemed to be more serious abuse than at all nighters ! Especially injecting the shit.

Pussies the lot of you using downers to come down. We used other parties to come down alongside lsd. Horrors? We wanted the horrors and laughed in their face. Hospitals? My front room was a hospital till weds usually. 

These days ill admit I can’t handle more than 4 coronas and get upset at the thought of having to take a paracetamol.

Ok there's a theme to mine - just too much gear and staying awake too long

Casino 4th anniversary (I had been to Bisley all nighter the night before) I thought people need being stabbed as they had red marks on there t shirts - it was the drips of nicotine from the ceiling dripping down. Came back on the coach with a coat over my head. - 6 - 8 hours

Yate about 77- eating 8 strychnine blues first time thought my head was going to pop - people kept giving me sleeping pills all night to try and calm me down

Morecamebe pier all nighter early 80ts Been on gear two days solid - three of us sat by an air vent - I could hear hissing - I jumped up went to the bog flushed 15 wraps down the bog came back my mate said where you been , just flushed my gear DS are gassing the place can't you hear the hissing - he went off and flushed his gear - nothing happened all night and through the vents you could hear the sea - that was the hissing 

Traveling back from numerous all nighters  with no gear but thinking the DS were following - even when they pulled off the motorway another car would join and your convinced here comes the next DS car - we weren't stupid 

Stoke on Trent Tiff's 76-77 all dayer got searched on the way in - the bouncer confiscated my gear about 10 wraps in a tin even gave me a coat room ticket to collect later - when we left later that night old bill were in the foyer keeping warm so I had to leave it - another close shave

so funny looking back now

Remember getting stopped on the M6 by the motorway bobbies on the way to keele in a hire car. I hired it, banned mate driving . Two girls with us.  One crying because her husband away on oil rigs was gonna find out she was playing out.  Bobbies said do you know that you where speeding.  Laugh  kin el if only they knew. Had a ounce in £10 wraps. On way back to keele services Bobby shop they went from shirt pocket to pants pocket to stuffing down socks in every  combination you could name. Lucky for me at bobby station plod said you stay there as they nicked my mate . For driving without a licence and speeding 90 mph. Close call.

Was never scared at any all nighter. However, sitting in a cafe or motorway services was terrible. Paranoid as hell thinking everyone was looking at me and some of them were thew squad.

Would they nick you simply for being high back then? 

Must confess never had paranoia whilst high post event.

It was all part of the paranoia. Having said that, we were involved in a car crash travelling back to Mablethorpe from Clifton Hall in Rotherham. Unfortunately the other car was being driven by the Chief Constable of Lincolnshire police. It seemed like half of the police force attended the accident and whilst being put into two ambulances the old bill were of the belief that we were off our heads and tried to interrogate us about where we got drugs from. We were sent to hospital for check ups and the old bill nicked us - m,e and my mate were in a hospital bed at the time, but were made to get out and go down to the nick We were then interrogated and bullied for about four hours until my mates dad turned up. My mate ended up with a permanently damaged leg and still has a limp. He sued the police and won damages.  

He also got a new nick name - Raspberry Ripple, Raspberry for short - cripple.

Funny that.

Never had any problems from other nighter people (no good taking my jacket it would of never fitted them) see a few nasty things from local piss heads. Mexborough nighter drunks fighting amongst themselves with bats and god knows what else, lot of blood spilt I remember.

     Manchester one Friday night, punks putting the venues windows through with bats

     Regular bust ups on Yate car park

     Samanthas steps as the piss heads coming out and us lot waiting to get in. Stood behind those Derby and Notts big lads, some I knew and felt a lot safer being close by
