Dingwalls is one of the legendary venues in London. It was key in the punk period and key in early days of the Manchester takeover- I saw some really important gigs there, like the Smiths in 1984 and all those Roses and Happy Mondays gigs at the venue when they were unknowns. My band at the time, the Membranes, played a show there with Pulp supporting us in 1989.
Since 1973 an eclectic array of talents including The Strokes, Coldplay, The Drifters,Â Gilles Peterson, The Stranglers, Gallows, Ellie Goulding and most recently Noel Gallagher, Foo Fighters and Mumford & Sons have also graced the Dingwalls stage. Bands like Blondie, The Clash and The Sex Pistols have all played and hung out there, and are part of the firmament.
