Monday, November 30, 2009     This reunion really was The Limit - especially if you had a T-shirt     Members of Sheffield bands Pulp, Human League, Vice Versa/ABC, Artery, Stunt Kites, The Extras and The Push made up a crowd of over 700 that celebrated the launch of Neil Anderson's 'Take It To The Limit' book this weekend.     A packed Casbah on Wellington Street wound the clock back to the 13 years the legendary Limit club reined supreme on West Street (from 1978 to 1991).     Paul Unwin, the DJ that provided the sounds for ten years from the day the venue opened in 1978, returned to the decks for the reunion to end all reunions.     Neil Anderson said: "The event was truly awesome - a queue had formed before the doors even opened at 9pm and one couple had travelled all the way from Spain to be there.     "The place was still full at 3am, nobody wanted to go home...     "But the most popular item of the night turned out to be The Limit T-shirts we had specially made for the bar staff with the venue's original logo. Many of them ended up selling them at the end of the night - one member of staff got £100 for hers!     "We're now planning to sell a small number of them."     Everyone from Joanne Catherall of Human League to Emmerdale star Ray Ashcroft - former frontman of Sheffield band The Push - was in the audience for the book launch.     'Take It To The Limit' is one of the top selling books in Waterstones in Sheffield.     The Limit T-shirt can be obtained at
