Eighties wasteland: big hair and pre-shell suit Friday chippy teas treat. Note the apathetic looks and general malaise. The girls were prettier then; and knew how to carry their femininity. The boys? Despondent and suspicious. The guy dancing seems to be taunting them....Not the best way to enjoy Friday night after a hard week's slog on the production lines...Next!

According to Jarvo, the 80's were no good neither were the 70's at the Alnighters, when was there a good time?

Depends where you were. The seventies were varied; but one avoided the Soul Night tackle; it wasn't conducive to good vibes or feeling good at all. That said, the disco scene was good for pulling the birds. But NOT the pretend elitist scene of the damp all nighters. The eighties? Some good music around and the women dressed like women. You avoided the places like Clowns and HA'S because they did nothing for your self esteem. Early eighties were promising but tailed off after Live Aid. I now think that Queen were quite appalling...

Ah' where is Barry now? ( and did he pass down those lovely legs to any of his female offspring?)

Queen, appalling, you're living on another planet mate.

Couldn't agree more about Queen,over-rated theatrical rubbish. They went downhill after 'Seven Seas of Rye'

Watch Live Aid again, Queen smashed it

There's more blokes watching him than women.

Interesting photo and great legs for a bloke, shame about the negative comments. I always thought Wigan area was a great place for music and entertainment.
