“I promise this will be the last Leeds comment... First gig I ever went to was Ferry solo at the Grand Theatre. I've had a thing for girls in seamed stockings ever since...”

“Aaah, The F Club, Roots, The Fav. Better be careful, too much talk of Leeds in here could be painful”

“I was moved from Manchester when I was 8 to be brought up in Leeds. The first live show I ever saw, a age 14, was Bryan Ferry solo at Leeds Grand Theatre. From then on I sucked in my cheekbones and headed to the 2 or 4 pubs and clubs that hosted the Bowie/Roxy scene in Leeds. From 75/76 coaches were hired and regular trips, well 3 or 4 , were made over the Pennines to Pips where we headed for the Bowie/Roxy room.

I would say the Bowie/Roxie scene in Leeds, Manchester and elsewhere was where punk sprang from, yet it's almost entirely undocumented... Anyone want to start a blog?”
