    I also recall the last days of the Irish Centre around 96/97, a beautiful building, the owners had very kindly let us rehearse in the cellar,every day it opened to the public around 10.am and served the best breakfast you could find,including white pudding,which id never come across, to mainly students and the local community,a great mish mash of people who really appreciated its place in the community. We were even lucky enough to watch Peter Green soundcheck, as well as acts including the Real People and many others in its fine auditorium.At the time we were unaware of the financial plight they were under and when we turned up one morning to rehearse, the whole place was locked up and boarded with all the owners assets inside and of course, our gear in the cellar. Straight away,Kevin ,the main owner staged a roof top protest/presence and he was there on that roof for months,battling to get everything out of the building,including our gear.In the winter months,we would all turn up with food, blankets etc, people from right across the board ,showing solidarity.....eventually they released everything from the building and Kevin came down from the roof but the building has never recovered,we often think about Kev, be great if he read this forum and hes got his feet up in a nice warm place.Let us know mate x.

    Was down Regent rd way, today,and took a couple of pic's of the gradually disintegrating "Norseman" club! Never went there myself,but heard plenty of tales!Does anyone know when it closed? You can see the effect of the partial road closure,a few years back,as there are several other closed premises,such as the "Langton Castle" pub,nearby.

    Does anyone remember the name of the club, I think it was in Fraser Street off London Road. It was quite a trendy place in the 80s. I remember going one night and Ultravox came in after they'd played in the Empire.

    I used to go the State which was the best club ever. Before that we used to go to Tuxedos, in between the Conti and Snobs on Wolstenholme Square. A great gang of people used to go to Tuxedos the bouncers even used to arrange days out for the clubgoers!

    The club in Fraser Street was Mr Pickwicks. (my first visit there was for the very first Beatles convention over the weekend of John Lennon's birthday 9th/10th October 1977 - what a good way to remember) and I then went there throughout the following years before it was later renamed Heaven.

    Thanks Ged. No it wasn't Pickwicks - I went there once and never forgotten! I was racking my brains and remembered in the middle of the night it was Cagneys. Maybe it wasnt in Fraser Street.

    I was gonna say Cagney's! Not a usual haunt,but they had a run of mainly local bands on there,around then,but the only one I can remember is Dalek I,with Alan Gill,who also played with the Teardrop Explodes!

    Perhaps he should go into our Scouser hall of fame ... well he was quite well known in L'pool.


    The club Rios. We used to go there a lot.
    Very disappointed when it turned into a rave club. it used to cater for average age 30s and upwards with a few younger ones mixed in. It was great for somewhere for the older clubbers to go. Then they changed it to a rave scene for 18 to 25s age group - so the regulars had to stop going.

    There is hardly anywhere for older ones to go to. If you like to dance and don't like sitting in an alehouse all night there is very little else to choose from.
    I remember Terry O Neil also being a bouncer on the door at Mr Digby's in Birkenhead. I seem to recall him working at the nightclub within the Adelphi Hotel ( during Supercharges heyday), and I think he later on opened a fitness club on the outskirts of Liverpool. Winning the Mr Universe competition might be another of his claims to fame.
    Regards,
    Chas

    The Banyan Tree is right, I don't know about the owner of the gym but I do recall one at the top of London Road. It was owned by the Fitsmaurice family in the '80's, one of the brothers, Neil, played a major role in " Phoenix Nights" on Channel 4, and has appeared in many Merseyside related films.
