Saw the cockney rejects at the new osbourne club and it was a scary night- west ham casuals outside the venue clashed with locals with baseball bats we ran all the way to piccadilly bus station to catch the night bus home- just your average manchester night out
If this is the club I'm thinking of, it was one, if not THE roughest place I've ever been in my life-I'm sure walking through modern-day Kabul would have nowt on a night out at the "New" (WTF did they do to the "Old Osbourne) Osbourne club. It was located in a delapidated shack, nestling in the middle of a primeval council estate. On the night in question, the gig had been cancelled and a small group of us got holed up in the club with a gang of racist thugs-average age 9 years old trying to kick the doors in. It was broad daylight and we had to get a -the indignity of it-police escort back to Piccadilly away from the baying feral urchins. I was glad to get back to the Factory/Russel Club which seemed sedate by comparison.
