Rockwells was, I believe the pub better known as the Beehive. From 83 or so? Recognise any of these bands?
A series of limited edition artists prints recalling some of Sheffield’s long gone but well remembered record shops is now available. Names like Cann’s, Wilson Peck’s, Fon, Warp and Bradley’s (see below) are featured. You can see the full rage and read more about the artist’s thinking behind these images on the Easy On The Eye site. The artist’s studio gallery is also open to the public as part of the annual Open Up event on May 4th and 5th.
We’ve added the start of a Sheffield concert diary to the site. This will include all bands who played here, as well as local groups. Take a look and see if you can add anything. Also up is the first of our looks at important local music venues, with The Top Rank Suite (now the O2) – arguably the city’s best venue after the City Hall, despite years of closure and even use as a church for a time!
