Peter Millington…..I played as a member of The Confederates in both. The Nest Club was at the very end of Trinity St. and is still a coffee house although the music in the Nest Club days was downstairs. The Contenental College had live music for the students (to keep them in rather than mix with the dodgy locals I think) every Sunday afternoon/evening. That would have been in 1962/3- great fun for us starting out with our ambitions to become a big group ha ha

Caz Simpson… Witchdoctor, I’ll never tire is seeing this.

Mick O’Dowd… Remember it Well.

Jane Hartley… was too young, did go to a Christmas party with my mum, Cobweb I think!

Colin Norton… Amazing place! Great atmosphere and crowd!

  1. Interesting find. Don’t remember The Hi-Fi Club but i’m sure I would have frequented it if i’d known about it. Where about was it situated Andre?
