I would like to hear guys memories who use to go Croft Club in Leicestershire on Monday nights during the early seventies when they had a band on + a Disco.I feel lucky to have experienced it saw many bands before they became famous.I heard different kinds of music: Rock; Folk; Pop; Country&Western.It was a wicked night out that was incredible value for money.Raymond Froggatt was quite a regular he must have been cheap haha.Seriously he was liked by the locals but many bands we saw went on to be stars like Whitesnake; Saxon; Hawkwind; Edison lighthouse; Lonestar; there were many new bands who played there and went on to be stars.I liked that Monday night because it was different kinds of bands each week then they had a decent Disco to which I also enjoyed.I think even Aker Bilk of Jazz even did a couple of gigs too. Songs are a good memory link when I hear a song on the radio I remember where I liked hearing it.I think guys will enjoy chatting about where we went in our early 20s.
I was a teenager in the 70s and while the music was incredible-Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, Elton John etc etc etc the state of Britain at that time was dire. I was a student in London in the mid seventies and it was dirty, boring and if you wanted a sandwich you risked food poisoning. There seemed to be strikes all the time (about what?). No Technology at all-seems amazing that we also had no mobile phones, computers etc etc. How on earth did we function. Life was a lot simpler and slower. TV-Minder was all I can remember. I think its a much better world now especially in the UK
