Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
The club which Maggie & I ran at the Old Fort in Precott St was actually called the "PUNCA" club as it was originally a gathering of local poets before we got involved. The late Tony Rosenbrook coined the name as his poetry was described by one of his school teachers as Peurile Uncouth Neurotic Childish Art" = PUNCA. We had some great nights there and we remember having to remove the hosts of snails which invaded the room which was only used once a week by us. We are still involved in the local scene in darkest Hampshire and are part of the Old Trout Band which gets about a bit now and then. Furthest gig so far was in Northern Germany but thats a tale for another time.
Best wishes to all our old friends
Pete (and Maggie)
