Firming

To celebrate 20 000 visitors in the last month, here’s another Worst of Perth classic for yous all. This would be somewhere around 20 years ago at The Firm nightclub, which was upstairs at The Old Melbourne Hotel on the corner of Milligan and Hay Streets West Perth. I can’t remember why I took this. Probably drink related. I’m not sure if it was some special event. I think everyone is just standing around waiting for texting to be invented.

    After seeing this photo, people under the age of 25 could be forgiven for thinking that during the 80s everyone walked around looking like Morrissey or Ian Curtis. Wrong. The men looked like David Boone, the women looked like Billy Ray Cyrus. If they happened to see anyone who DID look like Mozzer – usually outside Dadas or a DSS office (ask your dad) – they’d kick the living shit out of them.

    I think that’s me in the hat
    I’ve still got that leather jacket
    though sadly, not that waistline

    I remember the Firm very well, the dancefloor used to bounce like crazy and it felt like the joists might give way at any minute. The stairs were also lethal – very steep and very tricky to negotiate after a few overpriced warm tinnies of VB. I still have a scar on my shin from those ruddy stairs.

      Hi Skink,
      there’s not many hats like that, and I recall yours at Mecannos as one of the regular features.

      Funny, I recognise all of the recognisable people and would have talked to all of them several times a week (For the young folk, it really was a club – drop in any night it was open and you’d find the same crowd there) Not that I knew all the names then (let alone remember them now)

    Hmmm … Lake Street you say, TLA ? Presuming you mean north of the tracks, the obvious ones were Eagle One on the corner of James St, and The Underground on the corner of Newcastle St. Something tells me I’m probably completely wrong, but the real monstrosity was I think named Hannibal’s. I’m not sure about the wall carpet as I never actually ventured inside. It was next door to a pizza place called Uncle Vince’s ( Vincent’s ), which did the best chilli mussels anywhere, and directly opposite an Italian store which featured some choice lamps and statues in the window.

    While I’m here, I might as well ask. I always thought the best venue for a club would have been the circular carpark directly opposite the Ent Cent on Lake Street. What ever happened to that place ?

    Indeed it was the Re store, rhubarbwine. Thanks for putting a name to the place. Uncle Vince’s chilli mussels with crusty, ( in a good way ), garlic bread, were so deservedly and famously popular I don’t know why they bothered with the rest of the menu … nobody ever ordered anything else.

    As I previously mentioned, I never actually saw inside Hannibal’s, but now strangely, I wish I had … just once. I’m still unable to forget, however, the long queues outside of, it has to be said, southern European punters … all mullets and stonewash denim for the guys, big hair and shocking frocks for the gals.

    Hi Guys!

    I have employed a younger person to process about a thousand photo negs circa early to mid-80’s, taken mainly at Red Parrot, Wizbah and Milliways/Meccano/Firm. We are using a gizmo that turns negatives into positives and uploads to a computer.

    Question: WTF do I do with them? Can I upload thumbnails? To a homepage? And what are the privacy implications of publishing a person’s image without a formal release?

    These negs have been time-capsuled for a generation. I’m sure a lot of you would find them as fascinating as I would.

    Fantastic blog and comments! Does Reg Mifflin have any more photos of Meccano’s? I recognise a few faces in those photos but can’t remember the names. If you have Reg’s email I would like to ask him personally about more photos. I am probably in one of them! I was very much a baby then… just a teenager, and hanging around those nightclubs at that age probably wasn’t a good idea.
    Although the fashion was really, really cool and the music great. Ken Shaw was an awesome DJ.
    I think quite a few people who went to Meccano’s and the Parrot on a regular basis abused drugs and probably quite a few ended up having their lives ruined by it in the end. Sadly.

      Oh…more info here…my step brother Andrew was the owner of Hannibals at one point and he and my mother co-owned and started EagleOne. As a little boy I remember being in there during construction – LOTS of chrome, mirrors and black carpet. And mum having #1 or #2 of the membership discs in a drawer at home. She also had the niteclub (Lake st. ?) heading to the ent.cent. down from Fast Eddies.

    This topic is getting so protracted that it’s getting to be like an RSL bar on Anzac Day with all the reminiscing.

    Looking for people who remember Beethovens back in 1975? My mum used to go there a lot and i’m hoping to make some connections with people who either worked there or were regulars. Also if anyone has any photos it would be great to see these please email me mishears@gmail.com
