    Lots of photos on Flickr.

    I've got lots of good memories of that place, sad to see it burn.

    No offence, but from my experience there are.
    Personally I wasn't bothered, but the clear majority of peple I know and have encountered over the last few days feel that it is a loss in one way or another. Don't blame them, I understand where the sentiment is coming from, I just don't share it.

    Was really weird being able to see the smoke from our house though.

    Well, the people that I know ain't that disappointed. It was a bit of a dive, tbh. But, yanno, different strokes for different folks and all that :)

    The smoke was really impressive. It could be seen from the far north of Sheffield. It was quite mad.

    It was good when I went a fair few years ago when gatecrasher had just moved there from the Adelphi and stuff, but who knows what it was like now.

    RIP Gatecrasher. I had a lot of amazing times there, met some amazing people.

    Love the Adelphi. Was gutted when Uprising left!

    Cream (Nation, Liverpool) and Gatecrasher (Republic, Sheffield) were two places that I didn't get to go to. Hopefully the 'Crasher will rise again, although I believe that they do hold once-monthly gigs at the Birmingham Works? Personally, my biggest loss was when DNA (Birmingham) got taken over by Spearmint Rhino in 2002, which explains my avatar.
