|The Mothers Club was the launchpad for many well known bands|
The venue also hosted gigs by The Move and The Idle Race in its previous incarnation as The Carlton Ballroom. The Mothers Club even hosted Pink Floyd as they recorded part of their album "Ummagumma" on 27th April 1969! Legendary DJ John Peel was a regular attendee and said this of The Mothers Club: "People are amazed to hear that for a few years the best club in Britain was in Erdington!"
|The Carlton Ballroom became The Mothers Club and the rest is history|
