This Disco Sucks



Did you go to Wesley?

Do you have a persistent rattle in your chest?

Passed by Old Wesley Rugby Club this morning and was sad to see it being dismantled. So many fond memories of teenage experimentation.
The workers were wearing face masks and were taking asbestos off the roof, nice to know we did The Boogaloo, The Camelwalk* and The Funky Chicken beneath such danger.

      Exactly – its the disturbing of it that causes most risk, hence the workers wearing masks, but not the erstwhile dancers.

      Asbestos is only dangerous in powder form. When in sheets like this for which was used for roofing, its fine….. Alot of hype of this stuff just a money spinner for removal of it….

        Apparently your sound auntie is called ‘the bantie’ and your sound uncle is called ‘the funcle’.

      i’d say the amount of knee-tremblers again them walls over the years caused significant structural damage.

    “fond memories of teenage experimentation”… some of the experimentation I heard about would make Coppers look tame.

      Quite! I first visited the Wesley disco on an away day or two to attend a U2 show in 1983. Yeah, it was in the Francis Xavier Hall, I’m just that bloody old. The Wes was an eye-opener for a relatively innocent young lad from the country. I’d seen and hung out* with girls before but there were GIRLS in this disco. No Monster Munch**was offered but I really got the sense that some of these young wans from the Shmoke were a fine, fine breed apart. True story. ***

    I dunno what ‘The Camelwalk’ is? ….anything related to a ‘camel-stubby-finger-of-the-foot’

    [ moderate that ! :) ]

    Don’t panic people. Wesley’s clubhouse is getting some renovations done. In the meantime, The Wezz disco continues at the other end of the donnybrook grounds in Bective Rugby Club
