  1. Jades -Nitelife

    IIRC There were some Yellow counterfeits/bootlegs done as issues knocking about in the very early 80s - Can anyone else confirm ?
  2. Bedford Soul Town

    Oi !....Don't forget us young whippersnapers who were hanging from you lots shirt tails ! lol........You fella's certainly provided us with an education (of sorts). I was one of the mid 70s Bedford disciples along with Gareth & Glyn, Mick Lewin, Kev York,...
  3. Mr M's Wigan

    Remember standing next to the phone booth with Tony Worat one night. Some random girl came up & said to me "can you give me 2p to phone a friend". Before I could answer Tony said "Here, take 4p & phone them all"......
  4. Pete, the Donald Austin - Crazy Legs LP is in that pile of LPs I left with you ! ....You want it you got it is on there
  5. Kings Hall Vid?

    I'd stopped wearing bags by mid 79 as had most. The people who I have personally encountered at soul nights wearing them seem to have a distorted view of the mid to late 70s scene full stop, which goes far beyond clothes...Which has made me wonder if they are...

  7. Mr M's Wigan

  8. Come On All You Collectors

    Hi Tone, John Vincent was quite candid in a PM about what used to occur in Kettering. No wonder you spent so long up there !!!
  9. Yate

    I remember it going off with some football mob, (Bristol Rovers ?)....Or am I thinking of the same incident. Loads of smarties scattered on the floor.I got handed a handful of Filon, so it wasn't all bad
  10. The Truth About Cover Ups

    Steve, wasn't Willie Hutch's 'The Duck' covered up ?
  11. Lynn Varnado

    Disagree, I remember it packing the floor with dancers. I love it - always have.
  12. Yate

    Just to concur with what others have said, Yate was totally different to other nighters, I can't think of any other venue I could compare it to if I were being asked by someone who never went what it was like.... I went to most if not all of them from mid 78 ...

    Wash your mouth out with soap Mr Smith ! Its a classic
  14. Yate

    Ahh, that's why I couldn't see it, I could see the Tesco...
  15. Yate

    Bored at work, so I decided to do a google walk around a few nighter venues I used to frequent.......Is Yate (the venue not the town !) still there ? I don't recognise the car park/shopping centre on google , has it been extended/re-developed ? .......Mind yo...
