Belfast Chat / Re: Ashers bakery, any thoughts.

You see tours,... the Bible says a lot of things about a lot of things, and I know that you find that impossible to separate from current social political and legal life and behaviour and issues,... so let me try to give you a small clue about why biblical teachings and belief are completely irrelevant to any of those topics.

Ohhh,... only 2%,... so that must automatically mean that no church of any denomination has either relinquished the moral high ground or the self appointed and assumed right to dictate to the entire secular populace about what should and shouldn't be regarded as being either moral or immoral or acceptable or unacceptable, based solely on their own religious dogma and beliefs.

Not sure about Jim Grimshaw but my sister Rose, (NJ) keeps in touch with Joe, his cousin (lived on Woodstock with the Granny and Jim).  Joe came to Jimmy's funeral and we were able to reconnect with him.  He married a girl from the Short Strand , don't quote me here, but I think her name is McGreevy from Anderson Street???  Any idea where in Canada that Brian Smith lives.?  Last I heard he was in London???   I have a few friends around the Toronto area, met them here through the Irish traditional music and dancing scene and we all get together during the winter months in Florida.


Merry Christmas.........

"The Harp Bar - Belfast's Premier Punk Venue '78 - '82"

"The Harp Bar, Hill Street, Belfast was a dingy, heavily fortified pub in a dimly lit, narrow, cobblestone street in a run down, dilapidated part of the city.

In April 1978, Victim, supported by The Androids, staged the first ever punk gig there, and from then on the Harp became THE No.1 punk venue in N. Ireland.

It was Belfast's equivalent of London's Roxy Club and New York's CBGB's.

Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, The Outcasts, Protex, The Tearjerkers, Victim, The Androids, Ex-Producers, Shock Treatment, Pretty Boy Floyd & The Gems, The Defects, The Moondogs are just some of the many local bands who played there. A number of bands from mainland Britain and ROI also came to visit - The Mekons, Raped, Monochrome Set, V2, The Shapes, Revolver - to name just a few - as well as legendary DJ John Peel. However, all good things must come to an end and in 1982 the Harp Bar closed its doors on punk."

"On 8th September 2012, a Harp Bar reunion gig took place at the Black Box, a newish venue just a few yards along Hill Street from where the Harp Bar once stood. Entertainment was provided by some of the Harp Bar's leading lights - Shock Treatment 21, Protex, The Androids, Henry Cluney (SLF), The Outcasts, Stage B, Brian Young (Rudi) and Terri Hooley. "
