Anyone remember the Amnesia club? - it was on the corner of Boar Lane by the station. It went on to be the Observatory and then Flares. I think it was the Amnesia for only a short time - remember seeing Mark Almond (Soft Cell) in there once. Not sure but before being the Amnesia I think it was called Bistro 5 more of a coffee bar.Other places we used to go at the time were, Valentinos a bar down stairs from the precinct area off Briggate and Jacomellies which was a bar above the Bernie Inns restaurant.

Heh. I thought the title was a joke too.
There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.

Loved Amnesia, used to go in there on a very regular basis in the early 80's and yep, met Marc Almond in there also , very happy days Also used to go into Valentinos as well.Out of Leeds centre it was Foxes and Sedans in Seacroft me and my mates used to go to, or some of the blues clubs in Chapeltown Road.Sorry jabbering off the subject tut

I remember Amnesia quite well ,can't say I ever saw Marc Almond in there though.Used to go to Foxes ? a lot ,next door to the Mexborough ( now 3 Hullats ) on Harrogate Rd.Madisons in town was probably my favourite though
