The Greyhound - London RIP

The Greyhound

"Who remembers this relic of the pub rock scene?"

The Greyhound: pub rock relic

The Greyhound on Fulham Palace Road was a relic of the pub rock scene and was a big, grotty room behind the Greyhound pub. I went to see the Specials there at the start of their career when they were a major buzz in the music press. Because of the clamour for tickets there was a queue around the block and in a moment of super heroism I scaled the wall and tore apart a Perspex window advertising the products of Fuller’s breweries and jumped into the venue to see a fantastic gig. The Greyhound site is now occupied by a generic trendy bar.

We want your venues!
