  6. I see no mention of the 8 till 8 all-nighter at The Queens Hall in Leeds (a one of) back in 1973/4(ish) - Wigan was dead that night. Acts included Major Lance, JJ Barnes, Mel and Tim, Exciters, Impressions and GLSB all on the same night. Loads of talc used that night as it was a concrete dance floor (it being a converted tram station). Brilliant night though - amazed how many soulies put there hands in the air when Major Lance asked if anybody present was also at the Torch when he was there.

  8. Westfields Youth Centre in Cheltenham - friday night dances with Mickey Venn and Dave Coterill djing (Kaleidascope Discos) circa 69-70 - such sounds as Bobby Hebb, Fuller Bros, Al Kent, Major Lance, Showstoppers and even Repratta and the Delrons left me in a panic...

  10. Went there once on a coach from Gloucester arranged by Steve Smith - stopped at the Cats on the way up - DS pulled a few people off the coach and searched them. My biggest memory being Martin Ellis (and this one!) completely off his trolley and playing the Hawaii Five-0 soundtrack. Others on the coach were Roy Hyatt (RIP), Melv Clapton, Gibby, Daffy (Paul Daffern - not the duck), Barry Holton (RIP), Terry and Dave Chamberlain, Tony Midwinter, etc......

  11. I was there the night the police closed it. A coach full of us came up from Cheltenham and Gloucester and got stranded. The coach dropped us at 12 and then cleared off untill 8 the following morning. Spent a couple of hours walking the streets of Bolton being harassed by the police and finally ended up in the jamaican cafe where there were prostitutes upstairs and a bunch of huge jamaicans playing cards downstairs - I think the cafe was called the Soldier Blue

  12. Hopefully coming up from Cheltenham with Budgie - really looking forward to it. Note to Craig from Shrewsbury - if your going and you read this I would prefer you didn't stick a live light socket in my ear AGAIN when I'm all sweaty from the dance floor (they dangled from the ceiling where they'd taken some of the tables away from around the dance floor) It felt like I'd been whacked by a lump of 2 by 4.

  14. I was there, caught the train from Cheltenham. That was the night when a selection of artists were appearing Major Lance Mel & Tim JJ Barnes The Exciters GLSB and a couple more (can't remember who - funny I only usually suffer from short term memory loss these days) It was a converted tram station - the tracks were still there

  15. I can remember the 1st playing of Eddie Fosters "I never knew". My mate Phil Taylor taped it and was playing it back at the station when we were waiting to go home. Kev Roberts was there and was gutted that someone had a pressable recording and tried to bribe him with a Russ Monster tape
