Known to most Rockers in the Country as EDDIES, “Edwards No.8” was at the centre of Birmingham’s rock and goth scenes for over 20 years, and was Birmingham’s last remaining & true, rock venue until it tragically burnt down a little after 1am on November 12th 2006.
In the late 80’s it was the heart of a thriving Rock complex, which comprised two pubs/bars, a second club (“Edwards No.7”) located immediately beneath it, and another club named “Goldwyns” next door in an adjacent building.
In common with all clubs it had it’s ups and downs (particularly in the late 90’s), but unlike it’s competitors it survived and was all the stronger for it’s ordeal.
After the fire which took the original venue “Eddie’s” nights were briefly held at the “Gosta Green” pub (near Aston University). In early 2007 they moved to “The Newt” which was only 5 minutes walk from the original venue and were held every Saturday night from 10pm until 3am.
Towards the end of 2008 “Eddie’s” moved into it’s new, permanent home which is located on Gough Street, practically across the road from the old venue.
Since February 2009 Eddie’s has completely taken over the old BUSK venue and is now officially known as “EDDIES Rock Club”.
