has closed and will re-open in Feb as a dance/house venue.
No more Unskinny Bop :(
dance/house? what is this, 1992? or something.
though glad the local BNP haven't taken it over.
an appropriate sort of place for dance and house. Aren't these places usually big multifloor extravagagaganzas rather than stinky darkrooms?
I have lived just round the corner from it for a year and a half now, and have only ever once poked my nose in there once on a free night.
you must live near chunty!
There's a bit of unused space between the hoover, the strimmer, and the bag of tiny children's shoes.
Nice, intimate place but didn't have a lot of zest.
sorry, the worst three shows ever there due to the soundman being on the same level as fred west and jonathan king. He took a dislike to me as I wasn't using the latest ableton or nuendo, the promoter asked us back twice and the same thing happened twice even though we had clear tracks and clear guitars. the second time the soundman cut us off as "you're making me look bad" he said. Cunt from hell.
I had a guitar at the time that wasn't amazing to be honest. I said to the soundman 'i'm sorry the guitar is not great to be honest' and he said 'well, you should buy a new one then!'. He was an arsehole as well, really unhelpful and bored.
loved the view obstructing pole in the middle of the stage as well.
It was a shit venue, good riddance.
Did you or any of your other band members give him a dig - verbally or physically?
though by the third time we started the last song with a reversed sample of us chanting "the soundman is a cunt" and played in a fit of giggles...!
only went for clubnights. I'm assuming that raised bit of floor was the "stage"
and on her own. One of her first gigs. Four people in the crowd. My friend Dan drooling over her. I bought two singles.
I am devastated.
though wasn't it?
deserving of bombing.
I hated that place to play. Awful sound and there was a crazy bitch behind the bar trying to start a fight with me.
fucking horrible. the promoter wouldn't help me carry my gear upstairs, cause "then all the other bands would be asking!"
bunch of wankers.
were usually enjoyable. I remember one with Forward Russia, Redjetson, iLiKETRAiNS, Peace Burial At Sea, Tired Irie and a couple of others. Math/post-rock galore.
