The social club was a couple of terraced houses knocked into one and only a street away from Bradford City football ground. I had seen singer/wordsmith Robert Lloyd and the weaving, wandering guitars and rumble of drums of the wonderful Nightingales in triumphal form the previous night in Leeds. But they were up against ....
