    I remember the ones in Peel Square in the 60s and 70s, you went down some steps and, if I remember rightly, they were very well maintained.
    Are they still there? Bet they're a shambles now.

    Yes - did most of my boozing in the Thurnscoe / Goldthorpe / Bolton area back then.
    Yer could nearly guarantee that if any of these bands were on that the balloon would go up during the time they were on stage.
    All pile on.

    I know you know your tunes. I just like the original mod stuff mainly, or the obvious Jam / 2 Tone stuff, if it comes to that stuff. This is decent, but I just don't really feel it. Each to their own.
