Just seen this thread i was into the Leeds Music Scene at this time and hit the Three Coins regularly,it was a brilliant place ,we saw The Merseybeats, Dave Berry,Wayne Fontana,The Nashville Teens,Victor Brox Blues Train, Four plus One,The Toggery Five(later to become Sad Cafe),the record that was played over and over was The Others "Oh Yeah" We were freindly with the drinks bar lady and got our drinks free ,it was Coca Cola back then. The seedy bit was the DJ Tony Teret who i beleive was Ray Teret ,also Jimmy Saville was a regular visitor he was involved with a group called The Dawnbreakers, The Bileu Gardenia was the other music venue we hit on The Outer Limits often appeared there and later became Christie, The Peel was Jazz music but there were always fighting there as was The Central Dance Hall near the Corn Exchange, as mods we often got jumped on by Greasers but we had some victories ,one night wed been attacked in the Old Mecca and managed to escape as ratio was about ten to one, came out into King Edward Street and there were the Greasers machines as they always parked there,so enough said.......

Regarding the 3 coins club and Tony Teret being the 'seedy' dj Ray Teret have to tell you they are two different people, Ray used to say Tony was his younger brother but Tony told us they weren't brothers at all it was just a gimmick, don't know what Tony does now but he was an okay guy - just saying!

Think the Dawnbreakers changed their name a few times, the lead guitarist was Jeff Christie who later went solo and then wrote and recorded "Yellow River" which was a hit more or less world wide.
