Edwards rest in peace

Although never a regular at Edwards No8, it was the first club I went into when I arrived in Birmingham, so its with a sense of sadness that it burnt down on Saturday night. It wasn't quite my cup of tea, the music being a bit too heavy metal. As it happened we were at what has become my main indie club of choice, Snobs.
The fact that no one was seriously injured in the fire should be a testament to the skills and training of the door staff. Trying to move 500 pissed people out of a building at 1.30am is not the easiest thing in the world...

I was sorry to hear this.

It was good venue.

I'm struggling with the concept of 'too heavy metal' though ;-)

My tastes have mellowed with age. Once I would have relished an evening of earbashing by rock giants like Metallica.
But I'm currently happier with more melodic indie tunes.
I can't see my tastes ever mellowing towards C&W though.
