    Here's a bit about the history of some of the buildings.

    The Venue, Green Lane, Tuebrook.
    Originally built in the 1960s as a bowling alley next door to the Carlton/ABC cinema.

    The Paradox.
    Originally built as Vernons Football Pools.

    The State, Dale Street.
    Originally built 1905 as the State Restaurant as part of the State Insurance Building.
    Same architect (W. Aubrey Thomas) as the Liver Building.

    When I started going out in the late 80s I remember particularly Flintlocks (Fleet St), McMillans (Concert St) and Four Seasons (Bold St)

    Isn't it sad now that there's nowhere really to go if you just want to lose yourself in the music. I had a fantastic time in the 90's when you would finish work for the weekend, head in to town and go to either Cream (or the Conti - showing my age) and just let the music be your drug?

    Everything was forgotten, the only worry what the next tune was and whether to spend your cab fair on a last Red Bull.

    Now, all of those clubs went from gangland violence and drugs and kids with knives - is there nowhere to go anymore to just dance your knackers off?

    Thanks Ged - that list of clubs consists mostly of young pretenders as far as I'm concerned!

    Anyone intersted in Eric's try this link to the Everyman theater.

    Eric's

    Eric's
    19 September - 11 October at 19:30 pm

    Joe?s in trouble. It?s not his time but the clock is ticking. You?ve got to be ready; ready to battle, ready to clash, ready to fight.

    The troops he rallies are from his past, in particular Mathew Street and the passion of his
    youth; the rebellious and creative fire of a small Liverpool club. A club which sparked a cultural
    revolution and inspired a generation of musicians, artists and writers.

    Award-winning Liverpool writer Mark Davies Markham follows up the hit musical Taboo with this new musical specially commissioned for the European Capital of Culture. The story of one man?s fight for survival as he draws on the defiant spirit of Eric?s; do it yourself: and do it your way.

    My brother in laws brother (if you can follow that) used to manage Eric's, some of his Eric's memorabilia is in the Beat Goes On exhibition at the museum. The premises became the Cave when I went there (early 80's). There was also a club called Freewheelers (I think) near the bottom of Wood Street and The Wilsons..... memories of my head banging days ......
