Take 2

A venue based in Attercliffe run by professional trombonist(!) Marcus Reynolds. They were a busy and popular venue at the foot of Staniforth road often hosting 4/5 gigs a week. It was a key venue on the psychobilly & punk circuit as well as a variety of left-field rock bands, including the only gig by the Comsat Angels under their “Headhunters” name. It closed in 1990 and left a gaping hole that hasn’t really been filled in the Sheffield scene. Marcus is still extolling the joys of trombones, but sadly has absolutely nothing to say about Take 2 and no memorabila from the times. I suspect he simply wasn’t ruthless enough to run a business like this where everyone would have tried to take advantage of him.

Please share any memorabilia about this venue and add any missing gigs.
