The club was closed when it began to draw too many people for its modest capacity. Barrett and Kelly, along with Heavenly Records press officer Robin Turner and Chemical Brothers manager Nick Dewey launched further club nights at Turnmills and Smithfields in East London and at The Bomb in Barrett's home town of Nottingham. These club nights saw The Chemical Brothers grow from underground cult DJs to international rock stars, signing to Virgin Records and releasing a string of hit albums, many of them featuring guest vocals from recording artists they had encountered at The Heavenly Social - including Beth Orton, Tim Burgess (Tim Burgess (artist)) of The Charlatans and Noel Gallagher of Oasis. thumb A Sturmey Archer three speed AW gear, the most common kind of Sturmey Archer gear (Image:sturmeyarcher.jpg) '''Sturmey-Archer''' is a manufacturing company originally from Nottingham, England.
