In the late 70's early 80's,theJubilee on the Headrow was a happening place.This was a big pub with a cellar bar(folk on fridays....hot pot belly band regulars),a large wooden floored ballroom type room upstairs which turned into a nightclub later in the evening.I remember around the time of the ripper trial at Crown Court,all the daily national newspaper reporters used the building as their second home.In fact there was a huge display all about the y.ripper trial all up one wall(grisly to say least).It was a great place to meet and have the craic tho...sadly missed.

Additionally,Guildford was a favourite.You went into the front of what looked like a tardis only for it to open out massively at the rear with a fair few pool tables in the big room at the back.Happy times,Heady Days......

Brilliant memories and like any self respecting Leeds lad, been to most night spots mentioned in the 80s and 90s. Early forays involved starting off in NELLIES bar, maybe having a 2 pint stein (or 3) . Anyone remember the DJ used to play "The Wanderer" which went down well. Kept out of the way of the bouncer who had national health glasses and was terrifying when called into action. Buzzing after a few sniffs of poppers, we'd go to ROCKIES or the RICHMOND. Pretty rough places but great when you were a regular.
Moved on to the WAREHOUSE by the mid 80s and can still remember that feeling when, after queing for an hour, you managed to get in, if the door men liked the look of you. Happy days.. !
Born Hunslet then brought up Rothwell

I remember the hot pot belly band from the Haddon Hall, they dida good rendition of maxwells silver hammer.
Is it me or has Leeds gone mad

Ah yes, The Hot Pot Belly Band. Those were the days when R&B was something other than Plan B, Rihanna et al.

I believe the band called it a day a few months ago.

Aye ...thats when R&B was Rythm and Blues and not some concoction created on a computer that is trying to take away the pleasure of seeing real live musicians doing their stuff with the warmth and feel that is not available from a laptop...we should get something going to bring it on home to me/us !! I'm game if anybody else fancy's to join in..just need a venue and a decent PA !!!

Couldn't agree more Ray.

Well I've got the PA and something of a voice left, you assemble the rest of the gang and let's make it so!!

That sounds like a plan Phil !! Ity'll take a bit of getting together cos my drummer (who is awesome) is playing in Poland at the minute..leave it to me and see if you can bring someone in as well..Do you know Dave Gordon from Leeds ?? Very talented man and good guitar..he's my cousin.
How can I send you my fone number on here ? I'm getting so old/knackered we'd need to get it moving.. Is the FForde Grene still a place to do it?

Hi Ray

The Fforde Grene closed and became a supermarket a few years back now. One of the many pubs in Leeds that have gone in recent years.

I was a regular at the Warehouse from the day it opened for a few of years, then my musical taste took a turn and I stopped going for a couple of years. Got back on track and tried the Warehouse again only to be told 'Regulars only'. Managed to get one of the doorstaff to check with Blanche (ticket booth and Mike's, the owner, mother) and was welcomed with open arms and FREE entry. Happy days!!
Sit thissen dahn an' tell us abaht it.

Hi Ray,

We had these conversations back in Feb/March when you and I were threatening to set the world (back) on fire!! I've not seen or heard from any of my old partners in crime since then really. Our vocalist Dave's 60th birthday reunion now looks like it probably won't happen as they are moving house, possibly to Portugal.

I just content myself nowadays with the odd disco/karaoke do's for parties and the like. One coming up on the 6th October for my son-in-law's thirtieth birthday bash. They like to have a bit of karaoke more so than your usual disco type of racket, so Joe Soap here got volunteered for the job. Quite looking forward to it actually. Usually these type of do's end up with me doing most of the singing anyway (bighead). The downside of course is humping all the PA gear now that I'm at least 32. Must get rid of those 18" speakers.

I have a friend, Steve, who joined The Chasing Dark earlier this year. They play occasionally at The New Roscoe and The Cockpit. You can hear some of their stuff on their website. Unfortunately I haven't had chance to see them yet.

I had a drive round my old stamping ground recently and was saddened to see the closure of some of my old haunts;

The Albion, The Golden Lion and The Nelson Inn have all joined The Rose & Crown on Armley Road; The Queen Hotel on Burley Road; The Rising Sun on Kirkstall Road; The New Inn and The White Lion on Tong Road. Some of these may have been closed for some time as it's a while since I was last in the area. All wonderful old ale houses with many a story to tell I'm sure.

Going to see my old friend Sir Jim's resting place this weekend. I'm looking forward but not looking forward to it, if you know what I mean. I'll blub like a big kid, I just know it.

We could still squash it in fella.. I'm getting too old now not to take the chance of a 'bit of a bash'... I can't organise Leeds but I can in my area..Teesside. I remember Sir Jim in the 60's when we used to go to the 24hr open Georges Cafe (Leeds Bridge) and the one on the corner just across the road from it (can't remember the name) and the 2 Tomato Dips. Kirkstall Rd and Hunslet. He was always around late on (After Midnight... haha. Good song as well !!) of an evening..sometimes in a bad mood but usually a laugh. Aye those were the days eh.

Anybody please, I seem to remember dancing with the flirtations in
Hernandos club Harehills would have been 1967/68. I seem to remember Mike Brash encouraging the lads there to get up on the dance floor, anybody else
remember this. Maybe they were playing somewhere else in the city
at that time. Or is it one of those dreams we have, if it is its a 47 year old one.

Sorry Its been a long time since my last post.
