Summary

Part one of two. Gareth Jones explores the histories and legacies of famous north Wales music venues, beginning with the Dixieland Showbar on Colwyn Bay pier. Although today it's dilapidated and falling into the sea, during its heyday in the 1970s and early '80s it hosted bands including Motorhead, the Damned, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Elvis Costello, the Specials and Madness.
