Celebrating Birmingham's Popular Music History
Our aim to build a complete list of gigs at the Crown & Cushion Club. Here’s a start but we need your help!
The Herd 18/02/68
Plastic Penny 10/03/68
Penny Peeps 17/3/68
Way of Life 17/3/68 (including a drummer by the name of John Bonham!)
The Birmingham Evening Mail listed all of the gigs in Birmingham every day of the week on the second (inside front cover) page.
Is this the same venue that was in Perry Barr and used the name Gotham City?
The following are from the Birmingham Evening Mail:
29 January 1967
Way of Life played there with John Bonham on drums. Advert says Gotham City
21 July 1967
Wages of Sin and Second Thoughts. Advert says Gotham City (the old Crown and Cushion, Perry Barr)
8 October 1967
Yellow Rainbow (were Wages of Sin above and shortly after were picked up by Cat Stevens and became Zeus, his brief backing band). Advert says Crown and Cushion in Perry Barr
I remember going to the disco’s in the crown & cushion called Gotham City, I thought it was very grown up of me then
