It was the Leeds nightspot which catered for punks, goths, rockers and other fans of alternative music.

Tucked away at the bottom of a staircase inside the Merrion Centre, Le Phonographique opened in 1979 and was must for thousands of revellers until it closed in 2005.

Now former regulars at the nightspot – also known as the Phono – have got the chance to turn back the clock to its rough and ready heyday.

Leeds’s Wire club is staging a special Phono night on Saturday, June 23, featuring some of the DJs who kept the crowds entertained down those infamous steps at the Merrion Centre during the 1980s and 1990s.
