Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was just watching tv when i got hit whith a blast from the past.
    Cheekie petes night club ( its spelt right ).
    Anyone else been there? I know its a business bldg with some flats now.
    It bought back memories of having to battle skinheads on the bridge to get to thd mod night in the club.

    I hate growing old.

  5. They were also one of the first to open its doors to disco after saturday night feves exploded across the country. Dancing competitions etc etc.

  6. I loved Cheekee Pete's with DJ Steve Allen (now LBC) and the Beer Keller with various accordionists including Alan Young - Arthur Young and John Leslie. My friend John Cumiskey was a doorman at Cheekee Pete's. Happy Days!
  7. I'm doing a bit of a personal interest project on Blues and R&B live venues in London during the 60s.

    The Richmond area was well served. The Crawdaddy Club at the Station Hotel, Richmond (later relocated to Richmond Athletic Ground) and the Eel Pie Island Hotel at Twickenham. Some very big names from home and abroad appeared at these places.

    All these local places have gone now.
  8. Another necrothread revived. What's going on?

    Sent from my iPhone via crappatalk because the CO's are binning the ARRSE App (bit dusty in here now etc)
