Twisted Wheel, Brazennose Street

These days the location for the famous Twisted Wheel club is at Legends, the old Placemate 7 on Whitworth Street, near Piccadilly Station.  However, the original Twisted Wheel was here on Brazennose Street from 1963 to 1965/66 [1].  The club was famously run by legendary DJ, Roger Eagle, 'The Godfather of British Soul' and often had bands playing, such as the Cymerons, as seen below in 1963 [2].  Twisted Wheel was at number 26 Brazennose Street which in the mid 1850s was George Daniels' surgery (quite apt considering the pills that would have been popped in the club in the swinging 1960s).  The club was known as the Left Wing Club or Coffee Bar before the Twisted Wheel [3].
