Parkside Social Club – Bramhall

Midland Road, Bramhall, Stockport. SK7 3DT

Turn right.

Turn right into a right to buy road, past passed by, sub sub Lutyens semis, to the sublime, sub prime suburban worlds, teetering on the brink of prosperity.

Set back, set against a greying gun metal sky, sits Parkside Social Club.

So there it’s not there.

A chilling ambivalence that merely suggests occupation, a last grasp gasp.

Tattered flag picnics, burnt out embers, paint peels for want of anything better to do.

The world’s first un-social social club,

Where Roland Rat dances alone,

Every night, forever.

It’s not funny anymore.
