Waves, Dantzic Place, 1976. (c) Arnie at Manchester District Music Archive .
Waves was a basement rocker's bar on the corner of Dantzic Place and Dantzic Street. It is described as being "just a door on the corner of an old building and had a steep flight of stairs that descended to a large room with a small bar that resembled a damp, filthy vermin-infected dungeon (sounds like Fridays on Oldham Street)
. "It was just somewhere to get a pint of Boddies when everywhere else had shut. The bouncers would only let you in if you were a hippy, a biker or an Angel. It was a deplorable but great place ."
