Life After Dark: A History of British Nightclubs & Music Venues by Dave Haslam (August 13, 2015) Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book about the music scene, 1 Nov. 2015
Brilliant book about the music scene. I was enthralled reading about how the music scene and the night clubs across the country. How they have evolved over the last 70 years much to the announce of the establishment, is all detailed in this well researched book. The book brought home to me why we were all teenagers once with our different musical tastes and fashion. You will not be disappointed reading this book, no matter how old or young you are. I was not. keith.

4.0 out of 5 stars like the charade night club, 5 Nov. 2013
thoroughly enjoying the book. Went to listen to Richard Weight the other week at 'Of the Shelf' in Sheffield when he gave an excellent talk followed by a discussion on how this working class movement influenced fashion, music, architecture & the way we live today. The amount of depth & research that has gone into this book is amazing, even though the Torch was in Stoke & not Nottingham. The book made me realise that everywhere one looks today we can see or hear the Mod influence's from those early 60's. Parts of the book remind me of another underground book called 'the charade night club, the untold story' where one young mod describes holding all-night dances in a Brothel, after visiting the Catacombes in Wolverhampton. The mod culture & there attitude to authority is alive and thriving on the music scene in and around the North of England and this book brings back great memories from someone who was there.
