  2. # 22 I thought nobody was going to mention Boston for a minute. Here's an obscure one but a great rock album if you can actually get hold of copy Grand Funk Lives by Grand Funk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. # 29 Amanda and Angela. Pete Swain, is that the name you were looking for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Perhaps we should have the irrelevant unit system where Land mass is always compared to Wales or Belgium, length is a number of double decker buses, height is the Eiffel Tower, distance is times round the earth or to the moon and back, small is how many on a pin head, explosive power is as you correctly say the number of Hiroshimas (not Nagasakis), light is number of times brighter than the sun and heat is the surface of the sun. Like we can all understand them!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I remember Becket School on Wilford Lane joined with Corpus Christi on Ruddington Lane in the mid 70's when the comprehensive system came in, I think Becket was the grammar school and corpus the secondary modern but the new system brought it all together is that correct?

  6. #28 Yes, as people have said earlier in this thread this was called Russells (after Jane Russell) in the 80's and run by Phil Holmes who said he was an ex-A&R man for CBS, didn't know if he was or not but he put a lot of bands on that windowsill you mention, the stage was squashed into the corner of the pub on the outside junction, curved wall. It's the Orange Tree now. The band I was in played there regularly in this time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. #7 I think it's turned into a thread about Stan Reid rather than Roland Green :-) I was there 75-80 in its first comprehensive days. The headmaster was affectionately known as "Yorick" due to his skeletal features, not that any of us had any idea about Shakespeare so we concluded it must have been an English teacher who had come up with this and the main culprit would have been mr Ray Chaplain, deputy head!

  8. Wasn't there a fruit and veg shop on long row in the council house building? Burtons rings a bell, anyone? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok from my era mid 1980's Clint Bestwood & the Mescal Marauders The Lipstick Killers Up! The Dinosaurs Sir Hendrix Deadboy & the Sick Boy Federation Tropical Blue (later Word Association) Boys Own Club Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I played cricket for Gedling Colliery, most pits had teams so after match drinks on a Saturday night were in these places, so been to quite a few in my time, used to be packed out and normally some entertainment on too until...... Well you know when! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. thanks for that, shame I think he played in the same band as me, the list sort of made sense
  12. I remember Stanley Reid very well I once won £1 off him for reading a thermometer correctly, yes he was pretty much a stickler though, he retired before my final year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I can tell you plenty about one of those bands, I've got a feeling you were in a few of them, am I right?
  14. The die hardship used to go picking them from their "secret" places, I was always told you couldn't cultivate them and they grew near or in. horses fields, blokes would bring them into pubs and sell them out of a brown paper bag on a Sunday lunch and they fetched a really good price to officionados, best recipe, fried together with egg, bread and lambs sweetbreads, what a breakfast that was!

  15. Anybody here go to Roland Green Comprehensive? Not a lot of noise about this school on the web but had a fair catchment area from The Meadows, Wilford, Silverdale and Clifton Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I think it was his left hand, just had the little finger and thumb, he was my geography teacher at Roland Green 75-80, really good guy and a good laugh Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
