Venue Information


"A place so small it made those old red telephone boxes seem spacious."
Phil Lynott: The Rocker by Mark Putterford

-----------------------

This building is still standing,it's now a Casino that is run at present by The "GALA" company that also own many Bingo Halls etc

The Lafayette Club,Thornley Street/Whitmore Street,Wolverhampton,was where local disc jockeys such as Andy Archer and Barmy Barry,as well as bands such as The Montanas,Light Fantastic,The Jam,The Sex Pistols (as SPOTS),Glen Hughes with Trapeze, Dexys Midnight Runners (Mark 1),Ruby Turner,The Circles,Neon Hearts and many more had refined their live sets.The "Laff" as it was known was not too far a walk across town to the Soul Club ,"The Catacombs" (The Cat's) of Temple Street ,where a few northern soulscene DJ's had cut their teeth,I remember Stafford Street record shop dj "Crocker" & "Alan S" also "Blue Max" to name just three of the local ones.
Thanks to Stephen Elwell
