Have just come across a copy of ALTERNATIVE SOUNDS from late 79, when the city was full of good pubs and all types of music. If you didn't like the band you were watching, anywhere between Gosford St & Spon End, there would be plenty of places you could stick your head round the door. Here are two pages.

Nice one for finding that mag Genghis! There's some great stuff in there... how about Specials, Selector & Dexy's Midnight Runners all in one gig at Tiffany's on Thur 29th Nov! And I love Rich's rather frank comment about A.S. issue 7 in the 'Letters' column!!! That record stall in Intershop was always an aladin's cave for odd records too. I'd also forgotten that at one time we only used to have 5-digit 'phone numbers to remember in Coventry!

5-digit numbers were great Rob ;o) I've still got one of my mum's old phones with the 5-digit number print-out on. She still has the same number with the additional digits added! (never changed). I remember being concerned for Browns Comedy Club having to change from the 0203 Club.
