No, there have been 9 cinemas in Paisley, you've posted pictures of them all now.

Aye...  enjoyed going to them all - except the Bug Hut.  I went there - seldom.

Think the BH showed the same stuff as was on in the Alex and West End (for which I was lucky to have freebies twice a week - and the programmes changed twice a week, too) so I'd little need to wander as far as Lawn Street.

Right, now he's to start on pictures of every pub that has ever existed in Paisley. :D

Some pictures must be watercolours (or maybe neolithic etchings) as hunners o' mullyins o' Paisley pubs must have closed before cameras were invented.

The Cove Club to the right - that bloke is just passing it.

Used to enjoy The Sabres in there occasionally.  Great taste in music (ok - Blues, same as me)

 

The Mavericks were surprising regulars (from perhaps flawed memory... as they seemed to do the Church Halls circuit in the main.)

 

Best nights were with The Beatstalkers.  A brilliant, tight awfy cool band...

Lots of good bands around: at the time - living through it - we didn't appreciate how fortunate that was...

 

I went to Glasgow a lot, but knew it wasn't all that much better than in Paisley.

From that collage I saw Psychedelic Furs, Defiant Pose and Altered Images at the Bungalow. I'm pretty sure I also saw E&TBM but not 100%.

Also saw The Skids, Orange Juice and many others. Me, @herman_munster and @Brian1877 used to go several times a week until it all went tits up in 1981.

The riots in England caused a lot of chaos regarding pub venues in 1981 with so called "Oi" bands being associated with the racism that abounded at that time, even though there was very little civil disturbance in Scotland.

Cue loads of local authorities revoking entertainment licences. By the time everything had calmed down The Bungalow had new owners, had changed to The Stag's Head and they had no interest in hosting a music venue.

Sadly I'm too young to have frequented The Bungalow in its heyday.

I liked The Stag's Head though.

It had a video juke box, which used to get a lot of plays of J.Geils band , "Angel in the centre fold", and ZZ Top, "She's got legs", for some reason.:rolleyes:

It was also quite handy for a lunchtime pint when on day release at Reid Kerr😀

More so a bit later for a quick pint or two after finishing dayshift at gx superbowl.

I remember going in there, in a completely shattered state, after the dreaded team that will not be named beginning with "H" game. A lot of expletives were being uttered by myself, when some Saints, fans who had been in when we arrived, said that we should think ourselves lucky that we still got through.

Turns out they had left early.................................................................................

I really did hate to be the bringer of bad news on that occasion.

It's also where me and the mates went post-match. We also stayed to the end and got to see the reaction of those who left early.

Simply Minds and Big Country play there.     A lot of the bands used to player between the Bungalow and the Square Peg in Glasgow.

Not sure about BC. As I said bands stopped playing in 81 and The Skids were still going then. I saw BC at Strathclyde Uni in 1982 on their first headline tour.

No, just the ST. It says "Silver Thread" on the ticket behind his head. The collage is a mixture of different Paisley venues.

Note to self.........have a right good look before commenting 🥺
