  1. I got mine made to measure in 1977 from spencers, 38 inch bottoms and remember they had a couple of the patches in tartan ( no idea why ) and different coloured material at the bottom to make them flares, I must have looked a proper Charlie in them, I think they cost me £22 Inc postage. I wish I still had them just to show the grandkids
  2. Brilliant night at the Parklands club tonight, great dance floor, good beer prices, and excellent music. not sure who the guest lady D J was but she was excellent and kept the floor filled with her playlist. you really should try this event

    What are the times for collecting the wristbands today ? Please ignore, Times are at top of the post !!
  4. I have 2 tickets for the Blackpool weekender at the end of April but due to circumstances we can't attend the event. Happy to let the 2 tickets go for £30.00 for the pair. ( half price ) If interested, PM me, or e-mail to nealspencer61@gmail.com Regards Neal.
  5. Another cracking night at the parklands, great music and a good crowd, the perfect blend. You really should try it out !! Neal.
    A brilliant night at the Parklands, great music and terrific dancefloor, well attended which made for a fantastic atmosphere. We will be there again on the 26th March Neal & Sharon.
  6. Good night at the Parklands again, a few more through the door would have helped the atmosphere but I enjoyed the music yet again.
  7. The most expensive pair I bought from Spencer's I designed myself , 42inch bottoms, 5 pleats down the side & 6 small pockets on the back ( well I was only 17 ) cost me £50 ( was earning £26 a week ) and first time I wore them was to a mates wedding , ran for the bus and caught my foot in them, took the knee clean out of them and never wore them again . Absolutely gutted my mates still remind me of it when were out !
  8. I remember the Spencer bags, and had 3 or 4 pairs made to measure around 1976 _ 1978 including a pair of 40 inch patchwork denim. Never saw another pair ( unsurprisingly when I think of it ) but wasn't that the point, we just wanted to be different !!!

    Hi Rob, do you have any updates from your meeting ? I know things are still uncertain but do you think the weekender will go ahead as planned. ? Cheers, Neal.
  10. I've no idea if my Sassy copy was part of those 500/800/1000 ? from Neil rushton, bought mine from a lad from London in approx 1978/79 for a fiver. I still have it and it's always been one of my top five .
  11. It would be my Sassy copy, Frankie Beverly " if that's what you wanted" , bought it for a fiver in 1977 at Lilleshall ( where the England football team used to train) and it's still my favourite !!! it would definitely be last man standing Neal.
  12. Star wars theme , Meco, played over & over cos people were dancing to it in circa 1977/78.
  13. Sold mine 2 years ago ( Vinyl in ex condition but some writing on A side ) for £600 , I have owned it since it came out. wasn't a big fan of either side so happy to move it on to someone who liked it. ! Neal.
  14. Parklands in donny, just brilliant. Can't wait to get back on it sometime !!!! Neal.
