(Very early 80's) The entrance was in Union Street and I remember going there on Sunday nights (electronic night for us young 'New Romantics') before making our way down to Manhatten'...

Re: Monster Spider.

I've noticed recently that nearly every morning I have spider's webs hanging between my car's wing mirrors and the doors but have yet to see a spider.

Are they living behind my mirrors 8O

I'm on the Gallowgate and I hate school holidays as it seems hundreds of kids come and play in our back gardens. Last year I was constantly moving them and asking them to be quiet (at midnight !) For my troubles I had "cow" scraped in 3 inch letters on my car. I was in constant contact wit...
