Brechin by Jon B (Member 10101762) on 25-Jul-2003
I strongly suspect that the creators of the movie 'Deliverance' must have passed through Brechin and upon seeing the townspeople, got the idea for the 'banjo player' and his kin.   
  • Re: Brechin by peter drahony (Member 10102092) on 5-Oct-2003
    yes, if you go down to the dennies behind the abitiour, you can hear frantic banjo playing above the roar of scrambler motorbikes!

    Hi,
    I was the DJ at Flicks during most of the busy days. Myself and Jamie Hawke ran the light show at 10.00pm every opening night. The light show music consisted of a mix of star wars and superman theme music and we came out of the light show with the track Menergy by Sylvester.
    A lot of clubgoers today would be amazed that the venue was always full in these days from 9.00pm and we had to start... more >>

  • Re: East Mill Hall/Coventry dances by peter drahony (Member 10102092) on 5-Oct-2003
    i have remembered dancing to anything in my entire life because of my state of drunkeness at the time, and i think that dixie land might be beyond my range!

  • Re: East Mill Hall/Coventry dances by peter drahony (Member 10102092) on 5-Oct-2003
    i forgot the word not before dancing!

  • Re: East Mill Hall/Coventry dances by zulu (Member 10018187) on 30-Oct-2003
