    Missed that. it was a bit of an old rockers/ stoners pub when I know it - I actually worked behind the bar in there for a bit in 89, as the landlord was sympathetic to us squatters. At the time they put on bands at the weekend but tbf yeah the place was a total dump, the beer was watered down piss and there was a always a lingering smell of rank soapbar hash hanging in the air.
    After my mates were evicted from upstairs at the end of 1990 i had no more reason to go there.

    One nice memory of the place though was us all meeting up in there after the poll tax riot.

    :D

    God The Roebuck :) I'm sure I saw dumpy's rusty Nuts in there one weekend.. or someone similar and let's face it there were a lot of similar at the time.

    Yes Lewisham ODEON was definitely classier than Catford ABC, however we knew somebody who would open the fire escape at Catford ABC so that won hands down... I have strong memories of smoking a pipe in there when I was about 10 God knows why?
    I can't remember ever going to studio six or seven , but always thought they looked quite elegant in an odd way, like a pastel painted couple of middle aged ladies.

    Yeah that sounds about right for the place in the late 80's. I know the technician that mixed their gigs. he was a regular in there.
    6&7 was a weird place. They always seemed to have a strange choice of American B type trash films. Stuff like Smokie and the Bandit :oops:
    and those neon lights like a broken Miami landmark transplanted into downtown Lewisham.

    Oh yes I had forgotten about the neon sign , you are right it was out of place ... those buildings did look like they were just visiting and dropped in from another country.

    Tomorrow night there is free screening of a long form skate film called City of Rats at the deptford film festival. It's a skate film that documents the (mainly) London skate scene, it's trick heavy, street skating film.
    I've seen it, it's good and there's a Q&A with the film maker and a professional skateboarder as well.

    Must be caused by them messing about with the river! No wonder the DLR wasn't going between Lewisham and Deptford this morning! :facepalm:

    came up on a Flickr account I follow



    (for those new-ish to the patch, that's what was where the police station is now. i'd say the photo is somewhere between 1933 - when Tower House was built - and the 1939 war)

    and another -



    this bit is now the pedestrianised bit for the market. most of the shops on the left were flattened by bombing in WW2, and the clock tower is now a bit further south (it got moved a few years back)

    Lewisham People's Day today: Lewisham Council - People's Day

    Misty in Roots are playing.

    Just be aware that they are very strict about not allowing you to bring alcohol, or other liquids on site.

    People's day was good fun. Met up with a number of mates including r0bb0, saw the Pangaea Steel Band who were very good and Misty in Roots who were brilliant. Things looked a bit hairy at the end, with teenagers running around and forming a big scrum, I don't know if it was a fight.

    A group of people have come together and have been hosting cake mornings (my favourite) to help build and strengthen community relations under the punderful banner of Peace of Cake.
    They are a lovely, sincere and friendly bunch.
    The next one is Monday 26th September,
    Please check the video and pop along and support them if you're free.
