  1. I just stumbled across the 1971 High Storrs photo and can see myself, Richard Sutton, in it plus many old friends that I have not seen for 40 years. Phil Beasley, Dave Greensmith, Rick Barnes plus others who I knew like Phil Royston-Bishop and his girlfriend who I think was called Linda, plus many others whose I knew but can't really remember as the photo is too low resolution. Great memories. Richard
  2. What about the Buccaneer - Leopold Street I think. We didn't go anywhere else between about 1970 and 1972. There was a pub on the opposite side which felt like it had no roof as if you were standing outside - the Whetstone I think! Towards the end of that period and up to the mid-70s we went to the Wapentake because it wasn't quite as dark as the Buccaneer and you could see who you were talking to! Richard
  3. I think the band were called "McCloskeys Apocalypse" and they were discussed on a different thread a few years ago. I saw them a couple of times in the late 60s / early 70s. Their bassist joined in the thread more recently and mentioned that they re-formed for a gig in 2001. They should definitely be on the list! Richard
  4. I also just decided to Google for McCloskeys Apocalypse as I suddenly remembered them during an exchange on Friends Reunited. I lived near the Minerva Tavern until I left home for Uni in 1971. I'm also sure that I once saw McCloskeys on stage at the Art College at the top of Psalter Lane as support to a band called the Pink Fairies (I think!). It's all very hazy now but that would have been 1970 or 1971. I can't really remember the performances but this was the same time as I was seeing the likes of Rory Gallagher and Led Zep in Sheffield and I certainly remember them! Anyone else at the McCloskeys / Pink Fairies gig? Richard
