Subject: RE: Left-wing folk club, London, mid-70's?
The Unity is the one I'm thinking of. I lived close by in Oakley Square for a while. I would have been noted by Jack Firestein as singing "Lonzo'n'Howard" there, late '74 (though not under my real name, as I lived in a squat and was also a member of the Republican Movement). I tried to encourage friends of mine to come along, but firstly we were all much younger (late teens to 20), than the clientele, and secondly the singers sang the same songs every week, so it got boring after a while. Still, I heard great songs and enjoyed it when I was there.
