Carling academy looked great last night with the blue and pink lights shining on the front of the building, looks a bit grim today in the daylight though. Hopefully a great night out for the future.

Nice to know you liked the look of the lights - I hope the eased you aching feet - Believe human league may be playing here in a few weeks will check out details - been in the building before for many events in the 80's saw chrissie hinde and the pretenders and the world disco dancing championships in the 80's - would have been there on opening night but went to wok mania instead as you well know!

If you had said you wanted to go to the opening night we could have gone there instead. How do you fancy Hed Kandi? Human league doesnt sound to bad though. Might have to cut my hair like Phil Oakeys was, my parents wont tell me off this time. he helol he he

Never Heard of Hed Kandi - but the Human League -Now that's a defferent story - (may go on the 20th April if i can get some tickets - to celebrate getting my main pc back working and online - only took 121 days - and microsoft said it wasn't possible - the sooner we all buy macs the better) - and the reason i didn't mention the carling academy was i did not think anybody would now be seen in a night club with a oap like me - i meam i love this site - mentioned crazy daisys - ledgends -(i knew the pub at hillsbrough's name seemed familar - and after two years I now know why - they mentioned josephines (but strangley no mention of the topless barmaids ? - it's true honest) and also it went try to get in to josephines if not cario jaxs - and if not there the roxy was spot on. Even an old dj name i have worked with is mentioned on the site - Know how do i sign up for the brewery trip help please - will be on line at 22:00 ;-)

I have laughed out loud at this thread, brilliant memories of the Roxy, particularly 'the ramp of shame' where if all else failed, the Roxy was the place!! It was huge though, remember going to the under 16 nights in the seventies when it was probably the top rank. There were always teenagers making out under the stairs and sporadic fist fights everywhere! dont know if it would be allowed now. Glad to hear it is being used again, its an ugly building but loads of great memories inside....

I visited the 'Carling' last week. Sporadic fist fights still go on - but gladly it had nothing to do with me. I guess that is what happens when you charge 1.80 a pint.

Used to go to the Rock nights between 85-89. It started out as 1st monday in the month but proved so popular the 3rd monday was also added.

DJ was Radio Hallams colin slade and a mixture of Heavy rock was played. Particularly during the early days from

Glam metal Motley crue & Hanoi rocks to the excellent AOR Melodic rock tunes from the likes of White Sister, Dokken, Autograph ,Orion and many others. not forgetting mainstream Van Halen, Maiden etc.

I stopped going in late 89 when grunge took over Could never stand the New punk attitude of Nirvana and co.

Fantastic nights for 3 years Bring those days back as well as Bob Maltby era Rebels

It closed in 1996 It was used as a church by St. Thomas's they left it in a right mess inside when they left, then carling opened 11th April 2008. The building is rented by the carling academy, not owned by them.
