T1.... total memory block there. I remember the others plus His Nibs, The Norsk, Corn Exchange and was it The Maggie???

Used to be grand on a Saturday night. Somewhere about 77/78 we were doing our best to still try and get get into town on the train as a half. From Charing Cross station we walked up to the Norsk where they were pretty cool with us downstairs for one or two pints and a SoCo (even sometimes asking us to go for a wee walk while they were checked by the police... on coming back our drinks were always returned to us!) then over to Shuffles trying to avoid smelling of drink to get in. Never got knocked back or anything, but then again never totally drunk or out of it.

Question is, does anyone else rememeber the "special" at shuffles, a skoosh of each flavour topped up with milk? Makes me wonder what we were playing at... from memory it was a sludgy gank colour, but it tasted oh so good!

Cant say I remember the Norsk or Shuffles - Terminal One was around 73/74 ( St Enochs Squ.) It was a great place. Hows about a bit on the Muscular Arms - had a wee part time job there on Fri/Sat nights - it was the place to be back then in the early 70s. rolleyes.gif

Dear No 64,

Are you hard of hearing? Was the Scotia bar not a drug den - that's what my mum told me. I much preferred the Wee Man (pub on corner of Clyde st and Stockwell St) as I used to work weekend at a car wash down the lane.

Regards

Ian

I went to Clouds nearly every week with my friend. Always had a great time. Remember Slik playing there. We just loved dancing. Spent ages doing our make-up and hair and then sorting out what we would wear. After all the dancing, we would leave in that tiny lift and come out into the cold then head off to George Square for the midnight bus. More often than not, we missed it.

The Late Night buses from George Square

Can anyone remember a wee 'special'* guy who would come on many of the buses (early 70's). He would have a tin can or mug which he would jingle about for tips walking up and down the bus aisle while playing the mouthorgan extremely badly.

One point for anyone who can remember this with a special bonus point for anyone who knew his name!

Regards

OK, no extra bonus points for me as I can't recall his name, but I do remember him well. A good wee bloke and yes, with Down's syndrome.
Used to see him doing do a similar wander through in the Dry Dock down in Scotstoun from time to time. I recall he also did a stint with a wee transister radio, but for the life of me I can't recall which was first, the radio or mouth organ... used to joke that the proceeds from one had paid for the other

Well done Kenomeat you get the full points for remembering the wee transistor.

His name (which you will know) was James (Jaimsie) Barr and I think he lived in Scotstoun on Dumbarton Rd (correction actually Kelso St, so Yoker).

Prize will be a slap up dinner in The Smugglers (NOT!)

Best regards

Ian

does anyone remember where Clouds Disco was. I spent many a happy night there - I have a feeling that Gary glitter and his band played there one Xmas in the early 70s- would I be right.

You are correct, I used to work at Clouds and Gary Glitter, Elton John, the Bay City Rollers and others all played there before they got famous!

Yes I knew the Clouds dance hall back in the 70s, great nights there, I built the inside of the hall in 3D,
and made up figures in a program called iClone Pro 6, made up some dance moves for my figures, hope it brings
back memories for some you,

Here is my link to the video.
