Yeah just follow the smell of paint if you wanna crash there, it'll still be wet then, as he seems to paint on a continuous basis Exclamation

well, its here, the 2-Tone Central Specials pre-gig party!

Saturday 29th october sees 3 live bands ( The Allskas / The Three (Silverton Hutchinson-ex cov automatics drummer band) / Ska-Waddy plus a unique DJ set from Neol Davies AKA The Selecter!

All of this takes place at The Spencer Club in Albany Road,Coventry and why not come along and take a guided tour of the 2-Tone Trail while youre in town

Its £8.00 for the gig and £2.0o for the 2-tone Trail, you can do either or just one, whatever you choose. The trails start 12.30, with gig kicking off at 2pm- 5pm then make your way across to the Ricoh for the mighty Specials.
All funds raised go to the 2TC museum/village project as you will be aware, we are ina tyransitional period at the moment as we move to newer and more impressive premises

Tickets on sale now through 2tonecentral.co.uk

The Spencer Club.

Is that where Neville and his band played when he returned from the usa or where roddy played a gig on his 50th? Hazy memory. (The two clubs are close by) Laughing

One of the club's is off the roundabout with a car park which seems the idea place, not to mention the huge pub opposite.

£8 in and the whole world's yours!

Are you paying attention Robbo? It could get confusing!

The Spencer Club is where Nev played his homecoming gig,
The Albany Club is where Roddy had is 50th bash and
The Albany Pub is the big pub opposite the Spencer Club you mentioned.







That Albany Pub/Club similarity has caught out many a Cov gig goer, me included. Complaining that you'd gone to see a mates band, to find them not there. Only in conversation finding out that they'd played the other venue instead that night........ Embarassed Laughing
