Used to play at both these venues.

Always a bit seedy but such a good night. Our line up at the time included Bob Lang bass player with the Mindbenders. They where going through changes so Bob left and joined us for a while.

Our lead/rhythm guitarist was blind, he played with the guitar turned upside down, left handed and still Strung for right handed, so all bar chords where played upside down.
