“I remember Black Sedan, they had loads of boots which you didn't see anywhere else. They had a Garrard 401 deck which I used to drool over and they were always burning joss sticks.!!!! You went upstairs to the shop straight off the street, then they moved to near the Pheonix.”

“sounds about right for waves!!we used to wait in the car in yhe alley for the beer wagon to arrive.we would get a couple of pints off the boss for carrying the lager and bitter barrels upstairs to the top bar.i remember once i dropped the barrel at the top,and it went flying down and demolished the cloakroom wall!!! one of the bands i can remember introducing were called gyro,all of their gear and themselves was too big for the tiny dance floor to hold,but they were brilliant.i next saw them on telly,and i think they had become sad cafe.happy days!!!”
