“My friend I went to the 'Picc with is called Lynn we keep in touch, as we've known each other since we were 14! Do you also remember the 2Sues?”

“I went to the Piccadilly with my friend then, later, to Pips. Someone then reccomended (huh!!!!!) Placemate and we went to both places for a while, then just Placemate as she really loved it there - I always preferred Pips, but did'nt have the confidence to go on my own for ages. If we'd known you DJd there, I'm sure my friend would have agreed to go as she thought you were great! Anyway, (long story!) I started going to Pips again in 1980, and loved it more than ever, but you were not working there then! I loved the alternative, "weirdo" rooms and felt like I d come home - I'm 58 now and still go to alternative music clubs and events!
I worked in Sale for many years and sometimes bumped into your DJ collegue, Barry, including once on a work's do to Bugatti's.”

“I now live in Hulme, and the party is to have a nice event in mid-winter between Christmas and Spring. After everything that has happened lately, I will need it to cheer me up! Thanks for your kind words!
The party will, all being well, be on the 2nd saturday in March. Email me at for details!”

“Used to be a brilliant night at Tiger Lounge called Scary Monsters which really was an event where you could close your eyes and think you were in Pips, but that has unfortunately ended now. Shame!!!!!!!!! I am going to hold a party in the Yard Theatre where I live early March, which will play the stuff we loved at Pips and the odd other track which will evoke the era! Ara at Trinity Church (normally 4th friday of the month), plays some alternative '80s tracks as well as more recent alternative music. Recently I haven't been out much, as I had a bad cold and chest infection then my mum sadly died after a short illness, just a couple of months after her best friend. I'm currently there sorting everything out, popping bach home to check on things, like now. I will need the March party to cheer me up - will give you details soon.”

“I'm afraid I won't be able to make that one due to the death of a close family friend - there's only me and Mum to sort things out! But hopefully will make the next one! Some other friends are going to the Numan concert. I saw him there a couple of years ago, but I did'nt see you lot - although I bet you were there somewhere!”

“I sometimes bump into Billy, (he used to dress like Mick Karn from Japan,) and recently I met a guy called Mark whose friend, Alan, I had a massive crush on! Also Hannah. As well as a few others, and people who went to Legend, Thursdays, etc. I found out quite a few people I met since used to go to Pips, too, and a lot of my friends who were too young would have loved to. Your meet-ups sound fun!”
