Clarence's - 15-17 Crown Street, Halifax, West Yorkshire

Gig list 1976
Between 1967 and 1980 Clarence's, Paul Mountain's superb little club in Halifax, played host, in its various guises, to some of the finest and hardest working musicians in the country. Many of these are still recording and performing live gigs today.
Joe Strummer, later of The Clash, was amongst those strutting his stuff on the Clarence's/Roxy stage in 1976.

The year was also a time for change of name. So, on December 11th 1976 our beloved Clarence's transformed itself into the 'Good Mood'. Not one of Paul's finer decisions but the music scene was rapidly changing as well with punk rearing its head, and new wave and Two Tone a glimmer on the horizon.
The gig lists for these years provide a fascinating diary and insight into the changing musical tastes during the period. Blank dates will be filled in as more information comes to light. Dates and listings have been compiled using press adverts, contracts, Paul's personal notes and memories from many helpful contributors. Bands and artists may have cancelled, pulled out, or even disbanded at the last minute so the listings may not be completely accurate. Some roadies did actually turn up, took a look at the fire escape they had to haul the gear up to the second floor and simply drove away again. Luckily they were very much in the minority.

If you can help, even with any little snippets of detail, reviews, press cuttings, memorabilia or just memories please contact Lily.
