From the Archive: Last Ever Rock Night at The Tiv Pt:1

Recently it was National Nostalgia Week, and to keep the nostalgia going here’s a photo review of an event that marked the end of an era in North Wales, the closing of the Tiv as a rock venue and leaving north east Wales with no rock clubs at all.

The Last Ever Rock Night at The Tiv!!!!
[Saturday 29th May 1999]

Saturday Night at the Tiv, was the ONLY Rock event in the North East of Wales. But thanks to a new manager who believes Rock is dead, and that STEPS is the be-all and end-all of music, The Saturday Rock Night was replaced with the “Trendy-We-Love-Steps” Night. To mark the end of an era, that had spanned decades, The Tiv had a goodbye to rock party, where all the Rock-Regulars said goodbye with the style only Rockers and Goths can achieve……

I “Pendragon” and Andrew “Ax” decide to go say goodbye to the Tiv’s Rock Night with style. And since this was also the first time we had been out drinking together (and we had known each other for over 4 years) A lot of Alcohol was drunk.. A lot of Moshing was done.. And A lot of Flirting with rock-chicks was done..

I don’t know why the photo shows our hands covered with a strange blood red liquid, and it is a coincidence that the following night we were 100’s of miles away in another part of Wales..

PS: The Doctors say the new manager will be able to walk again soon….

Why is it, when there is a camera about It always seems to capture “iffy” Shots??. Take this one.. We had just met up with some old friends, John “kooper” and Gillian “NurseGrowl”. And look at the photo, it looks like Gill’s hand is heading for an interesting part of Ax’s anatomy, and Kooper does not look happy about it!!!

The Bit I cant work out is why Ax is doing an Igor pose?? with hunchback and gormless look ;0)

After asking a few discrete questions, Well as discrete as only a drunk bloke can be. Ax discovers Gill is single. And in a drunken moment of inspiration decides to kidnap her, and give her to Me as a present!!

Damn nice of him, don’t you think… And I didn’t get him anything…….

Kooper goes into total paralysing shock!!

But why?……..
…….Does he think the Camera will steal his soul??
…….Is he caught in a car’s headlights??
…….Is he to sober to deal with me and Ax??
…….Or is he annoyed at Ax’s Kidnapping of Gill??

I am totally unaware of Ax’s kidnapping of Gill, or Koopers paralysing shock… Like a kitten with a piece of string I am distracted, but in my case its by Vodka….

I did consider claiming I was drinking coke.. But after a quick survey of my friends opinions, I was shocked to discover that no one would believe me if I said I was Tea-Total…

Listening to my Friends you would swear I was an Alcoholic!!!!

I get my present from Ax. I really must thank him one of these days.. After all its not every day you get given a cute 18 year old blonde.. And the fishnet stockings and suspenders were a lovely bonus…

Mind you, my friends might have a point. I have another glass of vodka in my hand, and even the cute blonde can’t prise it off me!!!!!!

Kooper recovers from his shock, and starts to plan my death..

Just after this look to kill!! over a dozen unlucky people that were in his line of sight fell down dead…..

He still hasn’t forgiven me…

I get to grips with my present!!!

Actually this was a totally innocent pose, we were just dancing, and talking to each other… but the curse of the camera turns it into a shot that looks decidedly dodgy!!!!!

Look… Yet another glass of Vodka in my hand, and once again Gill was unable to separate me from my drink………

I’m safe… Kooper gets distracted as he is pulled by Dave.

Don’t they make a lovely looking couple??

PS: Is it just me, or does Dave look like a character from the Muppets or some such program, I just cant place which character……

Owwwwww how sweet.. ending with a Kiss!!!!!

Once again a totally innocent situation, that the curse of the camera makes to look dodgy….. You see, the club was playing VERY loud rock music. and Gill had asked me a question, and I was answering.. but due to the loudness of the music, I had to shout into her ear, and that’s what I am doing in the photo.. Honest!!!!!!
