great reading all these memories.I have been mod all my life.Originaly from clifton.Went down all the clubs that are mentioned,dungeon,beachcomber,room at the top on glasshouse street (white hart) santa fe in the meadows,the boat/union and the brit.Still run a sixties night at the brit every couple of month's.Have the 'union gap' on in febuary and 'the formost' in june.Still ride a lambretta for my sin's.Still mix with a lot of old orignals.Good to hear all the old stories.My name is Al Jukes if anyone out there remembers me.

Hi Al and welcome to Nottstalgia. I went to all the clubs you mentioned except the Santa Fe. If you are from Clifton you would remember Eric Lambert " Little Eric " baby face who all the girls liked to mother.

I can't remember you from then but I do know you from Saturday nights from The Dog And Partridge and also The Broad Oak in Strelley Village.

Hi nalasekuj and welcome,

I remember Eric Lambert from the Dungeon Club, very popular guy and always well turned out. Part of the 'in crowd' at the time. Did he have a brother called Steve who was a window cleaner? Could be wrong.

Eric still owes me for a pair of Levi jeans l bought off him.

Do you remember another Clifton lad John Wood? He was a regular in the Dog and Partridge and the Fountain.

Who was the old guy in the dinner jacket and bow tie who use to hang around the Poultry, Flying Horse area handing out free tickets for the Ad-Lib?

Hi nalasekuj, I remember the White Hart, the long room. Dj one end and opposite end the bar. Remember drinking bottles of Nut Brown, yuk. My mate and l stopped going when l got a good hiding from one of the regulars for chatting up his ex girlfriend, who l recall lived on Cliffe Road.

Didn't the place close down for a while after a gang of Skinheads turned the place over?

Never was a skinhead myself, never been aggressive but not through choice could pass for one today.

Hi Al if I remember Steve Lambert had red/ginger hair and I think he went into the Navy. I vaguely remember seeing him in town in his uniform when he was home on leave.

Regarding Eric I think he now resides in Beeston as mentioned in another thread re Dungeon Club.

Does anybody remember the big guy who was a bit unsteady on his pins that just wondered around the city? I think it would have been in the 80/90's.

He wore denims, his jacket had Hells Angels on the back. He had long unkempt hair and l think he wore a sweat band across on his head. I never saw him in any pubs just walking often muttering to himself.

I have no particular reason for asking but he was a regular in the city and I have not spotted him for years.

Hi benjamin, I am not sure about his height but he was tall, well over six foot. My mate told me once it took three coppers to arrest him because of his size.

I PM you to ask if you knew Johnnie Carrington the ex boxer, did you get it?

That would be him Robbie,......my mate with the shop always let him in about 7'45 am but did'nt really open until 8am,anyway my mate went on holiday and his brother took over the shop for him,and did'nt know about the early bit,the chap we on about turned up and started banging on the door but the brother would'nt open up (he dint know him from adam)

He started banging harder and shouting and swearing,it frightened him to death,in panic he rang for Police assistance,telling them 'come quick theres a f,,,,,g giant trying to break in...........so funny after the Police had been,he was arrested and de arrested,the big bloke came in the shop and apologised while i was there...............one minute he was ok the next he would fly off,but no real harm in him..............just a bit Barmy...lol

you type in johnny carrington on here rob and youll find theres a fair bit on him.I did'nt know him but knew some of his relatives.and no dint get a PM.

Hi Jan, I'm replying on behalf of Eddy Barry to say they meet on the last Thursday of each month, not Friday. So next one is 29th January. Wouldn't like you to be stood there on your own, especially on your birthday!
