@varicose veins,
It sounds a bit obsessed with vicarious, prurient puerility to me. Very lower-middle-class. Neurotic even. Carry On type snigger.

One thing it isn't is Punk.

@varicose veins,
Totally agree. Manchesters totally different today back then the city seemed to match the punk scene (grey, gritty and urban). All the regeneration has given it a more faceless european feel. Saturdays hanging around oasis or the roxy, or getting chased by perry boys, are definitely a thing of the past.

@ancient punk,
I love this thread. I was born too late for the original punk ... discovered all the good stuff from '77 only when I was a teen in the eighties and later on still. Keep up the stories..

@varicose veins,
Bloody hell the russel club. Now that was no place for the faint hearted.
Question. What was the name of the burger bar on deansgate? It was similar to mcdonalds but was there years before I'd ever heard of mcdonalds.
