I was one of the DJ's at the Swamp and used to work for the Boilerhouse Boys later
I sold Paul an Indian(not a red one) I never liked him as he was quite simply to annoying.I was also there with his manager when he got busted with 2 million quids worth of cocaine which I knew nothing about(I was banging his daughter)
All those rockin clubs were brilliant in the 70s and 80s. My old mate Rohan used to do a good night in Tottenham court road called Fortisimo.I still carried on going to Northern soul clubs but Wigan and The Highland room had closed so only the capital soul club and the 100 club.
I still do a bit of clubbing but I now look like someone's dad checking up on his kids or CID
Re gripper, I remember giving him a good hiding after he glassed some bloke and he nearly bled to death. I think that's what he went inside for. I can't remember his nice side. He was always up for a fight and as the old rockabilly song goes "I'm a lover not a fighter"
I started a thread called what y'all listening to could someone put up either The cat rod willis or the stoltz brothers rock n roll riot
They are two of my all time favourites
Re the weekender i used to go to Caister but the best one i ever went to was Perrin Sands in Cornwall. It was me, Mousie, Dave and Andy from Red hot and blue and all the usual suspects.It was a teds weekender but I had a spot on the decks and played Sunset Blues, That certain female and by the time i'd stuck on shake your moneymaker by Elmore James I'd been punched twice. I'd only been there about two hours and had a broken jaw. I don't remember what i was taking but that was on friday night and i was still partying on the monday. I couldn't even think about doing that now
HI DJ Neil
Not sure if you are still after the tracks The cat rod willis or the stoltz brothers rock n roll riot but if you are i've typed to links below where you can download them straight into your itunes (if you use itunes) or you can right click and save to your computer. I was actually drawn to this blog for research purposes. My name is Gino I was the main DJ at the Swamp in Croydon once Robert (the guy who ran the night) started to take a back seat. Anyway I saw your request and thought I'd give you the tip. Although it was three years ago when you posted this. all the best G
