A wonderful drawing of The Tower Club sent in by John Morrissey who used to frequent the venue in the 70s and 80s.
The club itself was a former Victorian church turned into a rock venue in the mid seventies, the address was Bower Street, off Shaw Rd, Oldham.The music was mainly rock/punk - I know The Fall recorded a live set there in 1978 that is still available on CD... I believe Iron Maiden played early gigs there also Rich Kids, Buzzcocks, stuff like that. I can't remember how long the club lasted but there was a fire and after standing empty for some years, the building was sadly demolished, sometime in the early nineties I think.
