The sixties night scene underwent some of the most radical changes imaginable as the post-war austerity years paled into insignificance and teenage pop and fashion culture came to prominence like never before.

The 'Dirty Stop Out's Guide to 1960s Sheffield' brings the era back to life with rare memories and photos; interviews with the stars and fans and a foreword by Peter Stringfellow, owner of Sheffield's legendary King Mojo club that ran from spring 1964 until December 1967.

It was a period that saw the start of a Sheffield influence that would eventually be felt right around the globe with the rise of Peter and Geoff Stringfellow, Joe Cocker, Dave Berry and scores of other home-grown talent.

The fox-trot, tango and waltz of the fifties dance halls went head-to-head with a new breed of blues, jazz, beat, R&B and rock'n'roll and lost hands down in 1960s Britain.

Sheffield teenagers signed up to the alcohol-free world of the Esquire and King Mojo venues; enjoyed a city littered with cutting edge coffee bars and record shops and caught anyone from Jimi Hendrix to The Kinks playing some of their earliest UK gigs.

Whether you were loved up with flower power; preaching counter culture with the beatniks; fighting it out with the mods and rockers; lounging it up in cabaret land's Cavendish or winkle-picking your way down the West Street run, sixties Sheffield grew to become one of the UK's most revered and varied after dark destinations in Northern England.

This guide book will be the perfect gift for anyone that remembers this amazing era.
