don't forget fouberts discotheque!!!,before it became fouberts club in the 1980"s, fouberts discotheque was one of the best disco"s in the west end, I was the resident dj there from june 1976 to December 1979 for 4 nights a week,i took over the residency in 1976 from a great dj " al needles" (sadly no longer with us). on a Friday and Saturday night we used to get between 300 to 400 people jammed in side, the place was absolutely buzzin, it was constant dance music with a lot of American imports, r&b, jazz and funk, as the dicsotheque revolution took off in the late 1970"s, it was definitely the place to be, the club was open from 9pm to 3am, then when we finished working most of the staff and myself would go round the corner into kingley street to a private disco/club called the candy box until the sun came up the following morning....happy days.. simon perry.
