Artefact

Membership Card
The Studio
1985

Sent in by Steve D.

Scans are of my battered 'membership' card, for which there was a 50p discount on the entrance fee.

The entrance to this place used to be used to be next to what was Halfords and is now Wetherspoons near the Garden Hotel in Piccadilly. It was underneath Halfords, and the stairs to it are now the same ones that you go down to the loos in Wetherspoons.
Played mostly dancey-chart stuff of the time, and I think it was only open for 2-3 years at the most around about 1985-87.

No idea what it was like during the day, or who the DJ was. Went in one Saturday night as usual to find a new DJ playing new fangled House music.

“I went here a few times. I remember it being a rather small dark basement. The music was ok but nothing ground breaking. I remember it being quite soul/dance orientated with the sounds of artists such as Deluxe.”

“Used to go here when we were skint, they had an American DJ called Al Rockwell, who used to play house music. Had some good times.”
