Neville shop is open until 9.00,Monday-Sunday.Often a life saver.And they sell lovely home made curries too...
On the club topic,one 'club' i remember was Cleopatras in Malling Street.I was too young to go in but my big brother used to go there.Was a lively place by all accounts.

I find the people in the Nevill shop open till 9 rude and arrogant.
Often they just bark how much you owe them, no banter or anything.
If they are chatting on the phone when you go in they don't even acknowledge your there and sometime keep you waiting while they finish their chat.
Best Avoid. If you do need anything then Ziggy next door is much nicer. Opens till 8.

I remember Cleopatras on Malling Street too, although I don't think I was old enough, or maybe it was when we all used to hang out in the Rainbow (and the Lamb) which was the meeting place for all the young locals. Is the rainbow still lively or more sedate now? Anyone out there that used to frequent the two pubs in the 70's?

Yep, was regular in the Lamb in the late 70's, and sometimes the Rainbow back bar. I used to like the Lamb cos they had live bands some nights on a little stage and it was always packed. The Piranhas spring to mind.

The Rainbow has changed a lot,back bar now gone,and the front has been done out like a lot of pubs have here now.Trendier,walls knocked down,looks like a wine bar,although ive only been once recently.To me it has lost all its old charm...The Lamb is the same to look at,but i dont know what its like to drink in.Think its my age....Im a Gardners girlie,Lewes Arms sometimes.
O,and Mick Miles died about 5 years ago.

No, The Lamboretors(?) was his band. Not sure if he was lead singer either.

I think "poison ivy" was by the lambrettas.
The lead singer of the Piranhas (Big hit with Tom Hark) was "boring Bob Grover" who used to drink in the London Unity pub in Brighton

"boring Bob Grover" drinks in the Greys, Southover Street, Hanover, Brighton and always has, almost every night for 20 years.
He's not as boring as people make out. He just talks slowly... very slowly.

It's all coming back now. You're right, Jez Bird was the lead singer of the Lambrettas, formerly known as Jeremy at Malling Primary School.

Southern Ryder were quite good too. There was plenty of dross there as well though. Jez Bird still performs around the pubs. I'm sure I've seen him advertised at the Pelham Arms recently.

For those of you who may be interested Boring Bob Grover of The Piranhas is playing with a new band called DATES. It's a mixed age line-up and they play what their myspace page describes as odball-pop! Recently had the priveledge of seeing them play at The Albert near Brighton station and they were brilliant... all original songs with a nod in the direction of 1982 but mainly a new crunchy upbeat sound. Funniest thing is that Boring Bob looks exactly the same as he did way back when. Have a look at www.myspace.com/datesmusic
