Hi Ged welcome to the mad world of Nottstalgia. As you can see in previous posts I have put my recollections of the Dungeon / Beachcomber / Brit etc.

I went to a Brit reunion just before Christmas and a few old faces there. I still see Mondo from time to time and his ex April. They had a Palais reunion as well at Christmas so plenty of nostalgia still going on.

Maurice Moore ( Moz) is a member on this site and a few more who will probably contact you direct.

Thanks for the welcome ...I've just finished reading the 34 pages ..very entertaining and makes the toes curl remembering the music and the atmosphere.

Hopefully there will be few out there who remember me?

Cheers

Ged

Have to post to thank Nottstalgia!! A very old friend who I hadn't seen for around 40 years left me a personal message and since then we have met up and spent a very pleasant couple of hours talking of the old times and getting to know each other again. Geoff was one of the lads I used to go to the Dungeon with so I thought it appropriate to use this thread.

Thanks once again to all on Nottstalgia!!!

Stu used to live just around the corner from me on Cardale Road I must have been about 12 or 13 and at the time stu was leader of the trent end a group of us used to wait outside his house for him to come out to go to the match.As we walked down the dale more and more would join us.it was amazing singing all the forest songs till we got in the famous city ground. Unfortunately lost contact with him when i joined the forces. Heard alot about him since,I.e how he ran pritty windows(peggers) where it used to be open at 4 in the morning packed solid with market traders and night shift workers. Would love to know if he is still about hear so many rumours. ie that he has retired to Spain.That he ended up in a wheel chair and is now dead. Stu was a massive part of the history of Notts and was a great bloke. Love to know the truth of what happened to him

If you want to find out what Mick Parker is up to these days and share some memories of the Dungeon days, make sure you're listening to BBC Radio Nottingham this morning (Sunday 4th Sepetmber)... Mick is guest of John Holmes just after 11am... 103.8FM or online www.bbc.co.uk/nottingham

Just been listening: properly took me back to that era- I was too young to go but older family members were regulars and often talk of those days.

Listened to John Holmes interview with Mick Parker, enjoyed it but wish they'd have spoken more about the Dungeon.  

 

Why is this thread being locked in 3 months time?  

The Dungeon Club is what I googled several years ago and that search brought me to Nottstalgia ........ my life has never been the same again! 

Great times, great groups and music and the very best time to be a teenager in Nottingham.

Well, it was worth getting up today because I've learned something new.

 

The thread was set to auto-lock in 3 months time. I didn't know such a feature existed, and I don't know who would've been able to do that (presumably Craig Strongman - who started it - or someone else).

 

But I've removed the timer, so it will be continue to be here for as long as - or longer than - any of us.

I have set up a website for the Dungeon Club and it is more or less ready, therefore I thought I'd let you guys have a look. I need input - photos, stories, etc, so please help if you can.

Any feedback, good or bad, welcome. So please have a look.

Brilliant Moz, it kept me fascinated for almost an entire afternoon.

Having read this, and other Dungeon related topics, I just wonder how many of us members were unbeknowingly at gigs together 50 or so years ago, and are now established NS members. I know for a fact that at least one other member has memories of the Martha & the Vandellas show, and others, Stevie Wonder, John Mayall and Rod Stewart nights. Great nights indeed, and can never be repeated I'm afraid. Now where's that bleddy time machine?

I agree , I went fairly regularly to the Dungeon but only ever mixed with our own "gang" from Gedling School or Digby College, never really mixed with anyone else . Must have seen lots of bands there (none on your list though) but the only one I actually remember was The Yardbirds .

Well talking of the Dungeon ..... went to a reunion this afternoon at the Bell.  A room full of folk who thankfully haven't yet got the onset of dementia, looking back 50 years to those good old days and evenings, and sometimes all nights listening to Motown, Soul and rock.  Amazing how many of us were in that Stanford Street basement at the same time, watching the likes of Wilson Pickett, Stevie Wonder, Charlie and Inez Fox, Martha and the Vandellas, Small Faces, the Who, etc.  The list and memories are endless.  Three or four other Nottstalgians were also there, don't think the bar staff knew what had hit them, we filled that right hand side bar!
