  1. There is quite a lot of poor spelling and grammar on this site, including this thread.
  2. Okay so I know who you are now. Why does everyone need a pseudonym?
  3. You have a very good memory ducky! I do remember this now you've mentioned it. I also recognise the name Peter Tulley. Did you go to Forest Fields Grammar School? The shop on the corner of Berridge Road and Stanley Road belonged to the family of someone in my year.
  4. The Bohemian Coffee Bar, Fletcher Gate The Bohemian was slightly before my time but Spike Woods has posted about it on this site. I only vaguely knew Anne Briggs... I particularly remember her from a higgle at Blackmires Farm in Northants. She has a truly wonderful voice and took no shit! Someone told me once she used to live in Lenton Abbey, but she had left a good while before I met her. She lives in Scotland now.
  5. Gaffa are playing tonight at Nottm Contemporary
  6. isn't it town end of derby road where it meets parliament st and maid marion way?
  7. you're talking about the old miltons head of course. there was a dj called woody.
  8. I'm sorry for people losing jobs but someone used to put it on at work years ago and it drove me mad with adverts for double glazing. Long live BBC6Music!
  9. I've envied people moving to Bristol. what do you want from Nottingham? what music do you like?. which uni is your girlfriend going to? Lenton is good place to live for Nottingham Uni (between campus and town). Lots of things that were good about nottm have been destroyed by local council, but there's still plenty of music venues, sometimes markets in the square, the Lakeside theatre and gallery.
  10. I think that's it. Is there another Sherwood rise because I don't see how it has a number 600.
  11. definitely never a tesco on sherwood rise, but there is or was a mini one near the bottom of nottingham road (same road)
  12. yes, that was more like it. No-one was dancing!
  13. there definitely wasn't a disco on the nights I was there.
  14. I used to go to Colmans on Friday nights when I was 14, must have been 1966. Used to go the Palais sometimes around that time. I remember my boyfriend dragging me on to the stage to propose (there must have been a prize of some sort)
  15. I used to go in the fox at weekends 1970-1971, mainly in the big room at the back. I can't remember the landlord but I remember the landlady getting edgy when I was in there at over 9 months pregnant.
  16. Hello Jake I've just had a call from Chris Mee. He said you were at art college together and you've sent him a christmas card, so you know where he is!
  17. 'Just the Tonic' is an independent comedy club currently on every Sunday night at the Approach on Friar Lane. They always put a Christmas show on at the Royal Centre and it well worth going to! Also on the bill is Charlie Baker and Phil Nichol - well worth it!
  18. you might need to be a bit more specific, I don't think Chris's memory is any better than mine.
  19. hello I was last in touch with Chris Mee last christmas. Would you like me to pass on a message?
  20. I think they were also used at Fords when it was on the corner of exchange walk
  21. Do you remember 'cosmic Ray' who used to signal to the spaceships with his cigarettes?
