Then and Now : Barbarella’s Birmingham

Barbarella’s night club was my second home in 1977-78, and I saw many great bands there. I wish I’d kept a record of which ones. It’s a bit hazy now, but definitely The Clash, Radio Stars, Wayne County & The Electric Chairs, and many other punk bands. I missed the Sex Pistols, AC/DC, Blondie and Dire Straits as I was living in Yorkshire at the time, for a year.

Great nights at Barbarella’s. Getting home at 3am via the late night chip shop and up for work 4 hours later. Those were the days.
