    Hey UK folks,
    I´m still working at my Metal Travel Guide: http://www.metal-travel-guide.com, where we are listing metal related places such as bars, pubs, clubs, discos and record stores from all over the world. At the moment we don´t have too much addresses from the UK. Anybody wants to help and send us some addresses where the scene is meeting in the UK?
    Thanks a lot!
    Britta

    Don't be silly Britta - its a neat site. In fact I've been intending to develop something very similar myself, but never quite got around to it, so I'm pleased to see the work you've already done.

    I travel a lot and its great to have a reference guide like yours.

    BTW, I can also supply you with some details for France.

    My guide to Metal stores in Paris

    The French version of 'Rock Hard' magazine has a section called 'Paradise City' and every two months they print a large article on a town in France - with details of all the stores, clubs, cool places etc. They have already covered, Lille, Lyon and Bordeaux (I think). If you'd like, I could extract the main details from the articles and email them to you.

    I also have some addresses for Holland (Eindhoven + Amsterdam) and for Belgium (Brussels)

    If you want to know more I can tell you. For now, I will say this: not for nothing is Plymouth a pariah for live metal :mad:

    Actually to make a confession I've seen 'Chas 'n Dave' :erk: but only 'cos they were on the same Knebworth bill as Led Zep - Fancy waking from a grotty night's sleepin a wet field and finding that coming through the speakers :yuk:

    @ Ayeka
    Thanks! I checked out their website and added the club to my guide. But feel free to tell me more!

    @ Charlie
    Ah, funny! I´m not the only person who had that idea! :)
    And yes, it would be great if you could send me that info from the French "Hard Rock" magazine. But unfortunately I dont speak any French at all... :err:
    For your guide to Metal stores I´ll send the link to my partner site which is dealing with Metals record stores all over the world (the link "Record Stores" in the menu at metal-travel-guide.com) so the guy can check it out if something is missing.
    And addresses from Holland and Belgium are always welcome, too! :)
    Thanks a lot for supporting me!

    OK Britta, I'll extract the main details from those articles and email them to you - it might take me a few days though :)

    If you have Excel, then I can send you a spreadsheet which contains the names and details of many venues and clubs across the UK (about 600). If you dont have excel, then maybe I can convert the information into a webpage or something you can use.
