“My old punk band Nervous Breakdown were due to play here with The Frantic Elevators. Myself and the bass player and singer went up there with the frantics in their mates VW van, but our drummer who was supposed to be meeting up with us there never turned up. so The frantic Elevators had to do it alone. I'm glad they did. half the Oldham Rugby team usurped the stage half way through their set and got a grip of mick and forced him to sing yellow Submarine with them. Poor lad was visibly shaking”

“The Electric Circus 2 was on Fennel street a few doors up from Pips. It was in a club that was was originally called Rowntrees. I know this for a fact because I played there. But it was a short lived venue and I think it reverted back to a disco afterwards.

I presume the ticket or flyer above was at a different venue that was only open for a short while. It couldn't have been open long otherwise I would have gone there.”

“Nervous Breakdown used this venue as a rehearsal room during the day. I think Micky the singer knew the owner”
