Re: Bold Street Working Man's Club in the 70's!

We were there in 2006. I don't believe I made it back when I came over later.

It was very special to go by his place at 12 Oswald Street then imagine him and my Aunt Maude (her with one leg) walking there and maybe stumbling home after dark!

In letters home he never mentioned which Pub he was frequenting. Probably cause my Mum was upset that "grampa Hall was going out drinking every night." I guess she didn't understand the Pub concept!

Hi JC4LAB (if your still around) I remember Abre (did they have a song called "The Devil is calling" or was that a lyric?) well they had some good songs but funny thing is I can't find anything by them on You Tube or mention of them on Google, they have vanished. I think they were from Northumberland or Newcastle saw them a few times. Nor can I find mention of Strife either.

Yep Scorpions played there twice I think once when they had first LP out and again when their second one came out. I remember the guy who ran it was Jack Bradshaw - I think he booked the bands and ran the music nights his wife worked down the Job Center.

Re: Bold Street Working Man's Club in the 70's!

6 or seven of us used to travel over to Bold Steet Workers every Sunday from 1972 onwards and enjoyed some great nights watching bands. Many of the names have ben erased by the passing of time but I do recall a duo from Sarf London called Burlesque. They consisted of a saxophonist and a brilliant guitarist called Billy Jenkins who went on to become a very well respected jazz guitarist.

Very fond memories now of a great night out in a small, friendly venue.

Always had to rush out at the end of a set to catch the last bus to Waterfoot.

The only band I can definitely remember (I think!) seeing at Bold St WMC were The Strawbs. Didn't see much of them though as I recall it was heaving upstairs.

I can't remember Strawbs but I can remember Stray or was it Strife? Stray and Strife I think both played there many times.
