Pistachio Durty Nellies Hull - closed (25) RE: Durty Nellies Hull - closed 10 Jul 09

I took a summer stroll round Hull Marina last Saturday evening with my hubby, saw The Green Bricks overspill, Pepis rubble, the boarded up Baltic Wharf(?), Minerva, (still advertising Sunday roast), the 'osswash', being used for an act of nature by a horde of junior females (DISGUSTING ARTICLES) who spilled out of a stretch 'wagon'.... then we ventured towards the old town .
I feel so sorry for some of this world's youth where it appears important (to them) to be seen in a complete mess, allegedly enjoying the deafening din pumped out at them... (you can tell me I'm getting old - I am now 51).
They'll never know what's been lost to their future. Unfortunately they'll probably not miss it but the original pubs, with their varied layouts and personalities, 'REAL live talented singers and musos being treated as little more than background noise. There's no attempt at 'Best of Order'to listen and appreciate the effort made.
I know, we don't all like the same stuff, and the recession is biting hard...(one last bitch coming up) but the amount of moneysquandered ( Hell, I'll stop now..) Suffice to say I'm hopeful the Sea Fever Festival will have some location available - maybe the space to the west of the minerva pier could be commandeered... and of course fingers and toes are crossed that Minerva will be returned to us... and Durty Nellies too. PS It was used as the opening night venue for SF last year.
