Get's a touch hazy looking back to 1970s Birkenhead, maybe it was the cigarette smoke that filled the buses in those days, or too much brown over bitter in pubs long gone the way of clearance...have though vague memories of a nighclub circa 1975, around the area of, the then newish flyover? Was it called Digby's? Anyone have any recollections of that spot? Seem to remember it had a small bar downstairs, with two rooms upstairs, both with dance floors and stages for live bands, rock bands as I recall. Oh and serving chicken in the basket too smile

Thanks for that, what a line up, do you think it was up and running before the punk era?

Missed out Birkenhead's Mutants. No idea what is was before, it later became one of the Fun Clubs (can't remember name) then a gym I think.

Loc: Wallasey
My schoolmates dad owned Mr Digbys & I remember The Jam playing there but didn't see that but I DID see Motorhead. I got so pist on the no 10 bus from Wallasey on a bottle of Blue Nun that I puked up on Lemmy's boots while he was givin it loads! Got booted off the stage by a roadie for tryin to nick Phil Taylor's drum sticks off his kit at the end of the gig & staggered back to Wallasey at about 4 in the morning! Oh happy days!
P.S. I did apologise to Lem when they played at The Asmosphere a few months later & he was kool as could be I even got a broken string off his bass!
