what's it like?
would i hate it?
I love the word 'hippodrome' though.
Is it new?
It was called Volts when I have been. It's fucking mental innit. Smart shoes, aftershave, threat of violence. I think you would love it.
your site is really helping me a lot today
(to make Ronco look silly)
I've not been, but if my brother gets in before I go out, I'll ask him. I imagine it would depend what night they had on.
I've only been to the first incantation but it was an absolute shithole in the mid 90s. Although the worst members of society probably go to Oceania now.
but i never went there either
i think i'm meant to be going there next friday for a birthday. I'm a bit scared it might be full of youngsters with haircuts though
Lionel Blair played 'Buttons'
this wasn't the information you were looking for
can't remember what it's like
but i did go there once
are you mental?
It was the Works while I was at uni and was vile but now Banquet Records in Kingston got hold of it and their New Slang nights are always great.
I don't go nearly enough.
perfectly fine venue really. narrow/long dancefloor, but otherwise fine for the band and only a mild sense that drunken townies were going to materialise and kick the shit out of us at any moment. would go again if there was a good band on.
the W on the neon sign was burnt out, so it just said THE ORKS
