I'm looking for more info on the Spiders Web clothes shop which sold skinhead gear in the 1970s/1980s on Middle Abbey St.

Where exactly was the shop?
Who ran it?
When did it open? When did it close?
What did it sell?

Pictures, memories and any other information all welcome.

It sold metal stuff in the 80 and early 90s i think, studded belts, wristbands etc. I used to go in every time I was in Dublin. It was towards the O'Connell bridge end of the street- roughly where that souvenir shop is...if memory serves

Spiders web was on the cusp of upper upper abbey street around the corner from the old dolphin discs shop on Liffey Street, The building would not be far from the luas stop/jervis street. It had a huge mural of a spiders web covering the front of the shop. It sold parallel trousers, triple waist baggy trousers, harrington jackets, doc martens, monkey boots, crombies, cheese cloth shirts, braces etc. I dont remember when it closed.

cheers

I have a Reading '83 tshirt from FM for the last 30 years... really dodgy picture of Philo & Ian Gillan ( with Sabbath at the time ) arm wrestling on the front. Great line-up on the back... will dig it out and take a couple of pics in a bit...

Re: FM tracks & Threads

... well... a little short of 30 years... you know you're in trouble when you automatically round things off to the nearest decade!!!... anyway.... I give you archeology....
