About the book:
Rebels had unlikely origins.
The revered venue that stood many storeys high above Dixon Lane actually owed a debt of thanks to Sheffield-born nightclub impresario Peter Stringfellow.
He – alongside his brother Geoff – opened its forerunner, the Penthouse, in 1969.
The club had morphed into a rock venue by the first half of the 1970s and staged one of the earliest gigs by a then-fledgling Def Leppard later the same decade.
A diehard rock community grew up around the club and put up an impressive fight when the management tried to ditch heavy metal.
They needn’t have worried – by the time Steve Baxendale took it on in the early 1980s it was throwing its weight behind the NWOBHM that was sweeping the country.
He re-named it Rebels and a Sheffield after dark legend was born. The venue’s reputation went before it and it was soon packing them in six nights a week.
When rock went overground in the late 1980s it was cleaning up. It went from a club for outsiders to the club to be seen in.
Tears were shed when it shut in the mid-1990s and many have never got over the loss.
This book tells the venue’s story from the opening of the Penthouse through to its halcyon years as Rebels. It includes ultra-rare photos, memories from DJs and clubbers alike and is a fascinating insight into the South Yorkshire rock scene of the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s.

Great book, great service.
Good delivery unable to comment on the product as it was bought for a Christmas present
Brilliant reminder of my weekends in the late 80s! Great to find out some of the history too. Only saw a photo of one person I know but just fabulous to take a trip down memory lane!
Another fantastic blast from the past book from dirty stop outs, rebels was my second home and the photos bring back some very fond memories from my misspent youth
Great book taking down memory Lane.
Great quality delivery as always was seamless
