There's a LP still around the traps
Bazz Plus Pilko
Day Trip To Victor
Made in 1980

The tracks are

Youve lost that lovin feelin
Volcano
Crash bang wallop
Little white cloud
The great pretender
Falling in love

Crying
Mandy
Some girls
No more smoking
Born to be alive
Day trip to bangor [victor]

Not a bad album

Can anyone remember this band in the 80's that did great cover songs ?
They did the Adelaide circuit a fair bit in the 70-80's
They were named The Boys
Used to like going to wherever they performed

Here's one that Bayman will vouch for
Circa Bay Disco 1980s

I would approach young girls with dark hair and ask :
" Are you from Lebanon?"
" No,why?'
" Its just that you look like a Beirut girl."

if you can somehow organize a trip to Adelaide i would think you'd love it, only going on the basis that Glenelg had a couple of ''Bay Disco'' nights in the last few years, they sold out quickly & everyone seemed to be having a great night out, perhaps a few sore heads the next day though

Well Bayman- you were right- it was an awesome night- lots of old players there including Steve Jacquier, Des O'Dwyer, Romano Negri, Ian Dettmann, John Roberts, John Cummins, Garry Haylock to name a few. Music was good and the atmosphere was great- the club is thinking of having another one in the future. Also spoke with a guy called Tim, who used to play guitar in the band The Streets. Suffice to say I had fun!!

30/4/1965
A list of Adelaide cinemas and Theatres
Including address
Including the movie shown

GLOBE 
42 Rundle Street
Not Tonite Henry

MAJESTIC 
104 King William Street
The Carpetbaggers

METRO
88 Hindley Street
36 Hours

NEW CURZON
Goodwood
Two Lives

PLAZA
Sturt Arcade Lane
Tom Jones [the movie not the singer]

STATE
39 Hindley Street
Marnie

STURT
25 Rundle Street
The Truth About Spring

WESTS 
91 Hindley Street
The Fall Of The Roman Empire

REGENT
101 Rundle Street
Goldfinger

ARTS THEATRE
Angas Street
Oaklahoma [presented by the Metropolitan Light Opera Company


The PLAZA was the interesting one
I had not known there was a theatre in the Sturt Arcade

Interesting to know how these cinemas got thier names
Heres an opinion of sorts on some of them

GLOBE someone saw Lee batting ?
MAJESTIC someone saw me batting in the backyard ?
STURT in 1965 someone knew about the 5 flags in a row 66-70
WESTS after Lee and Blacky ?

I would imagine those places would have been heavily attended in 1965 ?
Cinemas are ebbing south these days with low attendances[well the ones Ive been to in recent years]
TV + Videos a reason for the lowering of patrons
