    A reminder for you - MozMicDawn at the Lion at Basford this Friday
  2. If anyone is intersted, the next gig for MozMicDawn is on Friday May 31st at the Lion at Basford. Poster attached
  3. Yes, probably was Nonsuch - I remember the name, but can't remember the shop at all.
  4. I've always worn Paul Smith clothes - must have known Paul back in the old days. They used to have warehouse sales where you could buy their clothes very cheap. I also shopped at Birdcage - I remember Chris working there it seems forever, can't remember his surname. I'll Leave It was owned by the parents of someone called Mandy I believe and I knew Justin and Julia who worked in there. Micky did a lot of her shopping at Bus Stop - 2 who worked in there were called Jane and Mary, who now run a good guest house in Whitby, where we stay whenever we go up there. I remember a shop in the Bridlesmith/Byard Lane area that sold amongst other things afghan coats but can't remember it's name.
  5. For your information, there is a new local internet radio station called Radio Rosie, playing mainly music by local artists, 24 hours a day. It is in it's infancy and only has a few artists on at the moment, but does have songs written by my wife and I (as MozMic Frolic) and some of my instrumental stuff (Maurice Moore). If any of you out there write & record your own music, get in touch with me & I'll sort out getting it loaded. Have a listen -
  6. Seeing the topic on Joanne Lovatt, I thought I'd start one to post Nottingham talent - maybe young, maybe old, some you may have heard of, some you may not. I'll start with a 16 year old singer-songwriter from Wollaton - Frankie Rudolph
  7. Middlebrook Garage own Keith Moon's lilac Rolls Royce
  8. Yes I liked Julie Driscoll as well and Brian Auger - used to play the album Open all the time. How may other gigs were we both at? Did we know each other? I'll try to find an old photo sometime.
  9. It was the Penny Farthing, but I don't remember what it was called when A & M were there. They then move on to a new Ariba on St James Street. Going back to memories of Long John Baldry - I saw him a couple of times, once at the Dungeon in about 66 when he was with Steampacket (with Rod Stewart, Julie Driscoll & the Brian Auger Trinity) and once, probably 67 at the Sherwood Rooms when he was in Bluesology with Elton John. Was anyone at this gig? I can remember Jimmy James & the Vagabonds and top of the bill the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but cannot remember who else was on the bill and I'm sure there were several more acts. Any ideas?

    RIP Kenny Ball

    Another one leaves us
  11. I went to Digby College a few times and may have seen the Jaybirds - I did see the Mockingbirds (Graham Gouldman and Kevin Godley, later 10cc) and the Toggery Five. My band, Salty Dogs also played there.
  12. Back in the 60's, after school, I used to go into the Kardomah on Market Street. We used to sit upstairs & chat and sometimes Alvin Lee would come in with his guitar & give us a few tunes or show us how to play something. I remember seeing him play with the Jaybirds at the Elizabethan Rooms as support to Dave Berry & the Cruisers - I may have seen the Jaybirds more than once. RIP Alvin Lee.
  13. What about - Cherie Lunghi, actress Andrea Lowe, actress Elton Dean, saxophonist Ian Paice, drummer (Deep Purple) Bruce Dickinson, singer (Iron Maiden) Natalie Duncan, singer
  14. My main toys were - a Bayco set Triang train set (which I've still got) lots of Brittain's soldiers, cowboys & indians and a fort lots of Dinky's cars, trucks, army trucks & others
  15. Thanks for coming to the Victoria last night. I hope you enjoyed it even though the sound was not so good there and there was no room for you to show off your dancing skills, maybe next time. By the way, if anyone has any suggestions of songs to add to our repertoire, please feel free. We would like to play what our audience wants to hear. If you're interested, we have a website and a page on Facebook. Note: Life of a Rock Star - 1) on stage, did you notice me trip over a wire and fall into a radiator - good job we don't have any immediate gigs as I've done some damage to my hand and shoulder; 2) after we had loaded my car with all the equipment, It wouldn't start. I had to wait for 2 hours, getting more & more cold, before the man from the AA came & got me started. It seemed to take me ages to thaw out when I got home. I wonder if Rihanna has this problem?
  16. My Grandmother always told me it was bad luck to cut your finger nails on a Friday.
  17. Thanks to everyone who came to see MozMicDawn at the Lion last night. We really enjoyed playing and it looked to us like the audience enjoyed it as well - much singing and dancing. I'm only sorry than I couldn't spend more time talking. I will let you know about future gigs.
  18. Saturday 9th February - Lion at Basford Sunday 17th February - Victoria at Beeston
  19. 60s music has a timeless element. I play in a 60s cover band, MozMicDawn, because I grew up in the 60s and still love the music, but also people of all ages like the music. We get compliments about the songs from the very young as well as the very old. And also lots of the songs are known because they're used on so many adverts. If you're interested, here's some of the songs we play: (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone - The Monkees Baby Please Don't Go - Them Be My Baby - Ronettes Dancing In The Street - Martha & the Vandellas For Your Love - Yardbirds Gloria/Save Me - Them/Aretha Franklin Green Onions - Booker T & the MG's Hit The Road Jack - Ray Charles I Can't Help Myself - Four Tops Keep On Running - Spencer Davis Group Knock On Wood - Eddie Floyd Louie Louie/Wild Thing - Kingsmen/Troggs Natural Woman - Aretha Franklin Nowhere To Run - Martha & the Vandellas Piece Of My Heart - Janis Joplin/Erma Franklin The Letter - Box Tops The Locomotion - Little Eva These Boots Are Made For Walking - Nancy Sinatra White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane Will You Love Me Tomorrow? - Shirelles I can let you know of our gigs if interested.

    Greetings everyone. I have made a few posts, but I suppose I ought to introduce myself properly. Lived in Nottingham all my life apart from a few short periods when I've worked away, I lived in Old Lenton and went to Dunkirk School, then to Mundella. Was a mod in the 60s, went to all the clubs, and played in the Salty Dogs, later I suppose I became a bit of a hippie and still went to all the pubs & clubs. Worked with computers all my life, at various place in Nottingham (eg Bairnswear, MHS (and later CCN & Experian), Woolston & Blunt, Pedigree Petfoods) and have worked in Coventry, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Peterborough, Holland, France. Lived in Carlton, the VIc Centre, West Bridgford, Wollaton. Played many sports during my life, several years playing golf at Edwalton, Cotgrave Place and Beestonfields. Now retired from computers, I write & play music & songs, play in a 60s cover band called MozMicDawn, take many photos (always have done) and am busy trying to write my memories so am interested in any old information & photos to fill in all those gaps I've forgotten about. By the way it was my birthday yesterday - January 28th. Hello to this world.
  21. More Dungeon songs - Wooly Bully - Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs She's About A Mover - Sir Douglas Quintet Let's Hang On - Four Seasons I Spy For The FBI - Jamo Thomas In The Midnight Hour - Wilson Pickett Shotgun Wedding - Roy C The following remind me more of the Beachcomber: Sock It 'Em JB - Rex Garvin & the Mighty Cravers Everything Is Gonna Be Alright - Willie Mitchell That Driving Beat - Willie Mitchell It's Gonna Work Out Fine - Ike & Tina Turner Wade In The Water - Ramsey Lewis Trio Hurt By Love - Inez & Charlie Foxx Last Night - Mar-Keys Philly Dog - Mar-Keys The Duck - Jackie Lee
  22. Records bring back memories of each club I went to, maybe they were played more, maybe they stood out to me. The ones for the Dungeon for me are: Upstairs on the jukebox - Soulful Dress - Sugar Pie Desanto Walk On The Wild Side - Jimmy Smith Downstairs on the dancefloor - Night Train - James Brown Open The Door To Your Heart - Darrell Banks The Entertainer - Tony Clarke Boogaloo Party - Flamingos Tightrope - Inex & Charlie Foxx High Heel Sneakers - Tommy Tucker The "in" Crowd - Dobie Gray Stop! In The Name Of Love - Supremes Behind A Painted Smile - Isley Brothers Tell It Like It Is - Aaron Neville Shotgun - Junior Walker & The All-Stars Maggie's Farm - Solomon Burke Barefootin' - Robert Parker These are the main ones, there are a few others.

  23. It was 1967 when we played with Junior Walker. I saw 'Little' Stevie Wonder at the Dungeon in 65/66.
  24. Hi everyone, just joined this site and not read everything yet. I'm looking for pictures and memories for my 'Memories' that I'm writing. I went to the Dungeon, Beachcomber, etc. I've always been different - my scooter was a big orange DKR Defiant. I played in the Salty Dogs - we supported Junior Walker & the All-Stars at the Sherwood Rooms. Was anyone there?
  25. I have 2 channels on YouTube - 'MozMicDawn' contains an assortment of live videos of the band playing. 'MozMoore' contains some songs/music written by my wife and I including one which has been recorded by Lauren Lovejoy.
