"A group we used to follow, mainly around Blackrod, Horwich and Bolton were Blue Arcade from Horwich. The line up being Mark, Pat and Laddie. They played a residency at The Black Dog Pub in Horwich which was on the traffic lights crossing Winter Hey Lane near Horwich Loco' Works. The pub has been numerous things since like a snooker club once owned by Tony Knowles the snooker player and his father and is now an apartment block."
