“Does anyone know who was the dj in the Roxy room in the early 70's?”

“Was Bowie the first individual (rather than group), that people tried to re-create and exact image of?”

“Placemate 7 had lots of guises, but I rember going in the early 70's when it still had a stone dancefloor and "wagon wheels" in the walls from it's days as the Twisted Wheel. I seem to rememeber it had a "sister" club in Nantwich? It was more straight ahead than Pips, and didn't have a Roxy room. A pretty good club all the same, but not in the same class as Pips.”

“I think what was great about Pips was the mix of people. It's hard to see such an eclectic mix working today, although the boundaries have been blurred, and it's a bit easier being a "non-conformist. And remember, you could hear Sailor played in the the Roxy room too!”

“Fond memories of early Pips. All the different rooms. Used to go with school mates and members of what became Joy Division. Always started off in the Manchester Arms watching the strippers!”
