I have so many memories of the Doune Castle. They seemed to have an open door policy and you could always get in as long as you looked 16-ish. I played my very first gig there at the age of 16, we had only formed the week before and wrote most of the songs the night before.

Is this the Andreas who oversaw the demise of the Alhambra Inn?

I got in the door of the Doune Castle with I.D. that was typed up in Secretarial Studies in Bellarmine School !!!

How in God's name they thought it could possible be geniune I'll never know - I think I got in just for the cheek of presenting it.

I found this during a desk-clearing frenzy and can't remember where it came from. For the hard of sight,like me, the posters are for "Folk Boat 70" with the Humblebums and a barbeque with Beggar's Opera and Pram - can't make out the venue for this one.

More likely the home of The Bundoran Club where The Beings played every Saturday night. Kenny Hyslop on the drums.

Is that the place which "was run by a teacher from St. Aloysius."? :wink:

You've been googling again. You are forgiven but here's three decades of the rosary for your penance.

Talk of Martin Cotter, the Bain brothers and The Bachelor pad leads me inevitably to the Greek Taverna, haunt of many southside musos. Anyone got any memories of this. I was a bit of a hanger on, non musician but big fan of , among others, The Kissing bandits. Recently found a download link to some of their music, if I find it again I'll post it. Remember the Doune Castle and Burns Howf where the big band of the day in the early seventies were Chou Pahrot.

Nice! Been trying to find out about this band for a while, but an interweb search wasn't happening on account of not knowing the spelling. Within minutes had their live album on MP3 :D
