Review – Bat Out Of Hell The Musical

This was our first outing into a social gathering setting since, well, y’know, the global apocalypse, and man alive I was excited! Even the walk up to The Opera House became exciting. As we approached, 30 Harley Davidsons drifted their way around the corner and formed a troupe in front of the Theatre. They sat […]

Bat Out Of Hell The Musical

Opening in Manchester on the 11th September, Jim Steinman’s spectacular musical Bat Out of Hell hits the highway on a 2021 UK tour. Bringing to life the legendary anthems of Jim Steinman & Meat Loaf, this critically-acclaimed production uniquely combines the magic and excitement of a musical with the immense energy of rock ‘n’ roll. […]

An Evening With John Cleese

For people like me who enjoy Comiccons, 80s conventions and live events, lockdown has been a nightmare. When I first heard that John Cleese was coming to Manchester for An Evening With John Cleese, I was overjoyed. Skeptical, I will admit, but also overjoyed. I hadn’t been in a room with many people for over […]

John flippin Cleese!

An Evening With John Cleese in Manchester

John Cleese is coming to Manchester on 19th July, to perform his one-man show An Evening With John Cleese at the BEC Arena. The list of his Film and TV credits, as both a writer and as a performer, is immense! Co-creator of Monty Pythons Flying Circus, writer and actor in A Fish Called Wanda, […]

On Safari

Safari? So Goodie! When I was young I never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day […]

Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums

I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The […]

Ashens and the Polybius Heist

Remember the 80s? Of course you do! That’s why you’re here, at an 80s site! And do you remember 80s arcade machines? (That’s a rhetorical question – there is no need to keep answering out loud from now on.) If your favourite film genre is “80s retro gaming heists”, then you will certainly be adding […]

Purple People Eater

This was a game in which you had to remove little plastic people from the mouth of a gelatinous purple people eater. It worked in much the same way as Operation, in that you used metal pliers to extract people from the monsters metal-lined mouth. In a way this is most 80s boys dream, getting […]
