In the 60s, I started to go to the clubs of Nottingham, starting with the Dungeon, then the Beachcomber, the Boat Clubs (the Boat, Brit and Union) and then many of the others which sprang up. They started playing Mod and Soul music which I had heard covered by the many British bands being formed but these were the originals and had a huge impact on my life. I started playing some of this music on my podcasts on Mixcloud, an attempt to get across to the listener what life was like hearing loud music for the first time and dancing in those dark cellars or small rooms to those vibrant throbbing sounds. A very good example of some of the first music I heard at this iconic club is one entitled ‘Dungeon Days’.
