There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Hello,

After all's said and done with this album, would an MTV/80's pop board have a different track listing? This used to be a Clash board. No Joan Jett, No Suzi Quatro, no Interrupters, no Bow Wow Wow, no Pretenders, no Selecter, no Slits (I'm missing a few here as well) but Donna Summer is here. No offense to Donna Summer but her place shouldn't be here.
Pretenders are on board. I don't agree that Donna Summer shouldn't be here. As a Clash board they were a band that embraced all styles and this comp reflects that.
Yep, pretty sure Joe and Mick were soaking up the vibe at Studio 54 before writing Mag 7, Radio Clash 12" and Overpowered by Funk.
Exactly mate.
... and Topper being on the floor at fifty-four.
Hello,

I'm late to the party again but as probably tone of the few old enough to have been around Studio 54 (full transparency - I never got in; I only tried to go twice but I guess I didn't have the look - New York had plenty of clubs with better music in my admittedly biased opinion), no one really went to Studio 54 for the music. Most people I knew that went actually went to be seen, see someone, get drugs, or get laid. Studio 54 has gotten a better reputation with nostalgia. Did anyone else here try to go?

I got no pun, my babe, no pun.

No not where I come from. ;) I suppose here it would've been the Blitz club in the 80s London. I did go there once but it was full of poseurs but that was very much the point of the New Romantics. Boy George was the cloakroom attendant back then and a nice guy.

Interesting, never got to NYC until much later. London early 80s for me, Camden Palace and the Wag Club a couple of times, would get turned away more often than get in. We'd have fun but plenty of poseurs.

Was in the Wag once, late 80s, only cos my friend at the time was related to the manager. Only remaining memories are that it was wall to wall poserville, seeing Jonathan Ross looking utterly bored and using our free drink tickets on these obscenely gorgeous girls who then got up and walked away when they learned we didn't have any drugs.

Lightning doesn't bother me. It only strikes in old New York.

It's immediately obvious
Anybody star-guilt
Would have left this club
Way before it was built
This strikes ya' so late
As the guy with the broom
Sweeps you and the bottles
Right out of the room...

Went to Le Beat Route club a few times. I can remember "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" from that time.

Hello,

I knew you wouldn't let me down, Marky.

I'm kind of surprised - but I'm older than I thought!

There was CBGB's (tough to get into for a good band), the Mudd Club, Palladium, the Ritz (great for music - saw a lot of good bands there and the bars were easy to get to), Area, the Lonestar (James Brown, Chuck Berry, Billy Bragg), the Zebra Lounge (kind of scary but fun) and a bunch of others. I'm just reminiscing out loud for the hell of it, I guess.

I still got no pun.
