Rehearsal Room, central N’cle (off Westgate Road) available for 3, possibly 4 piece band.  Attic room, so lots of steps, probably not suitable for gigging band (though Vendetta have used it for years). Suitable for ‘starting out’ band, preferably rock or metal—but with potential.   Room is insulated but basic.  May be able to supply a PA.  Suit ‘responsible—if there be such!’ student band, as other activities take place in this large building.  Weekly rent would be low and by negotiation for young band who intend to apply themselves.   Call Rick at Turboventure,  0191 232 5872.
