“Proper club for proper people....underground as hell. All Dave Haslam has to say about this place in his book is 'Thunderdome: cheaper drugs,nasty people'. Amen to that! Stick your Hac up yer arse!”

“konspiracykid is mischief making with this totally made up quote! If you're interested, then you'll be pleased to know my book mentions the Thunderdome at least five times, bigs up Steve Williams and Jay Wearden and mentions some of its problems and some of it's top tunes, including 'Acid Rock'. Lots of great clubs, lots of great tunes. Lots of great memories.”
