  2. Mine caught me and I only saw her home after the dance. A hound should be able to run better than that, but I guess I wanted to get caught. Went to the pictures next night. Ritz Carlton. I was living high. Lousy film but neither of us cared. Felt like the Beagle that caught the Rabbit.

  3. Welcome SteveP! I spent a lot of time at The Dungeon, Beachcomber and Boat Clubs. Too much time really, I should have been at home revising for exams but n’er mind, I did OK anyway. My younger brother saw Black Sabbath at Arnold High School Youth Club in the late 60s, before they became big. It’s amazing to think how these performers who really make it big-time just start out in little local venues, the Jaybirds being a prime example!

  4. Also saw ground hogs at Nottm uni plus Roxy Music,T Rex,Sha Na Na Black Sabbath at tha Albert Hall,pretty sure Mott the Hoople wrecked the dressing rooms and that was that!. Don’t forget the boat club,saw some great bands there,one of the best was a band called Wild Turkey. A bit further afield,the great live band ever SAHB at the demons fort and AC/DC,Ian Dury and the blockheads at Derby Assembly Rooms. Fantastic nights

  5. Tap shoes. I'll bet there are loads of them in Bulwell! When we were children, dad put metal segs in our sensible shoes. This made them almost like tap shoes or, as my sister put it, made her sound like a carthorse clip clopping down the road. She hated the sensible shoes dad always bought us as children. She wanted fashionable footwear. As dad said, 'When you're paying for your own shoes, you can have what you like!'

  7. Didn't there used to be a song with the words, 'A man chases a girl, until she catches him!' Might have been inspired by Ben!

  8. Wow! You made me sign in, Ben. Good post. 1963 Was a great year. Met the first Mrs. L at the YMCA Monday night dance. Married for 33 great years. I'd be married to her yet if she'd lived. Enjoyed Nottingham in the 60s.

  9. I adored them! Despite performing as a sort of comedy group....sending up the 1920s/early 30s UK jazz scene..they were all very good musicians. The lead singer 'Whispering' Paul Mc Dowell..continued in acting and other artistic pursuits until he died in 2016. I loved the way that McDowell would stand aside, often leaning casually on a jardiniere or somesuch and smoking a cigar..until it was his turn to sing.. then I'd be worried that he wouldn't get to the mic in time.. He always did. And of course there were 9 of them. When interview
