The Society of Cool!
If you're in Bristol, you could try these nights on for size...
'GoGo Children'. Monthly. Mix of R'nB, Ska and (although not really my bag) Northern stuff. Friendly crowd and good times a plenty... See ya on the dance floor!
Department S. Usually with live bands and the bristol DJ legend that is John the Mod serving up allsorts...
and if you're in town, also worth checking out John the Mod's vintage shop...
Also try visiting The Bristol Mods Scooter Club page. More about scooters really - but they do have an events page...
Haven't been here for a while, but have indulged in mod friendly cappuccino in the past...
Hope that helps. I'm afraid I don't know much about Chippenham, but it's not all about crunching carrots down here! Ohh-arr-ohh-arr!
Oh wow!! There's loads I need to check out then! Thanks so much for letting me know about them all, definitely be looking them all up. I doubt there is much on in Chippenham but I'm more than happy to go to Bath and Bristol when money allows :)
Haha! No there's cider drinking too! Ohh-arr!
I run a monthly Mod night in Bristol - 'Dirty Casino' at The Stag and Hounds in Old Market - live bands and 3 ace DJ's
My dates for rest of year:-
Friday 19th October - with Marmalade Sky
Saturday 24th November - with The All-Nighters (9 piece Northern Soul band)
Friday 14th December - with Daytona + Life On Six
Also, in Bath you have 'Lets Go Together' a monthly night at the St James Wine Vaults.
Plus The All-Nighters play in Chippenham (and other places nearby) regularly
Oh brilliant! Thanks so much for letting me know! I won't be down for the Oct 19th night but I will be for the other two so hopefully will be there!
I'm so happy they play in Chippenham, it means I can just stagger hope without worrying about having to get taxis, etc! Haha!
Thanks so much, hopefully see you at some of these events x
There's a guy called Derek "Del" Shepherd lives in Chipenham [or somewhere very close] he runs regular nights in the area [The older amongst us remember him from putting out Modzines like In The Crowd and Tailor Made in the 80's/90's]. There are also some members on here from Bristol / Swindon and surrounding areas. I'm in Somerset myself and not too far. Good luck with the move and hopefully see you around!
Oh wow!! He sounds like the right guy to know for the kind of nights I'm looking for! Thanks very much for letting me know!
I'll have to get in touch with some of the people on here then :) Oh brilliant, I'll probably see you around then. I'll be the loud drunk girl who looks about 13! Haha!
Thanks very much, it's going pretty smoothly so far... x
Treat the scrumpy with extreme caution. It's known as 'Swamp' in Frome and its addicts are known as 'Swamp Monsters'. Iggy and the Stooges did a song called ;Death Trip' which is all about Rich's Cider.
Haha! Swamp monsters! I'll have to remember that one, my cousins are fans of cider so I'll have to find an occasion I call call one of them a swamp monster. I'm not a fan of cider, I'm going to be the odd one out!
Oh really? I'll have to check that one out :) x
