Once upon a time, back in the days when tremendously successful ladies in the hit parade didn’t have to twerk naked 24 hours a day on MTV, there was a rock/pop star who looked like this-
Admittedly, this was in the 1970s, when the parents of younger Buglers had barely even been born yet, themselves the offspring of all-nights-in-the-Cavern chucking-knickers-at-the-Stones if-you-can-remember-the-Sixties-you-weren’t-there baby boomers, who despite the wild abandon of their own tender years, frustratingly decided their own kids would never be allowed to stay up late, go out, or – especially – have friends from Over The Lines.
The rockster’s name is Suzi Quatro – clickety click here if you want to know more – and she inadvertently started something on our wild west of Wirral, first of all in That Place Down The Road With Better Shops.
Buglers with balding heads or necessarily dyed hair will recall that in That Place Down The Road With Better Shops there used to be a first floor nightclub that went by the name of Quattros.
Quattros came first, but it wasn’t entirely dissimilar to this place that once existed here in our very own hallowed village of cup cake emporiums-
-albeit it was a lot, lot, shitter. With even worse haircuts.
It was where men-childs donning sparse moustaches and bad mullets would try to pick up what are today’s pretend respectable adult ladies - quite possibly your own mothers, Buglers – in, of course, their crap Audi Quattros like this-
And now, twenty or thirty years on, Suzi’s legacy is to be bestowed upon yet another generation, via this-
Welcome to Hoylake’s new venue – Studio 4 Quattro, or Studio Quattro 4, or Quattro 4 Studio. It’s hard to tell.
What isn’t hard to tell is that it isn’t hard to spot, looking as it does like there was a ma-hoos-ive sale on at the garish red, black and white paint shop.
It’s like B&Q its very self just chundered up in Market Street.
But then they wouldn’t be the first ones to do that would they Buglers………………………?
