— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

LOST NIGHTLIFE.

New York club culture, anyone with a passing interest in hedonism and classic disco will be very familiar with the names of the Paradise Garage, Danceteria and The Roxy (with a little bit of CBGB’s for fans of John Varvatos). It also happens that these clubs were embodied the rawness and edge that NYC was world famous for in the late 70’s/early 80’s. This youtube video of Jools Holland and Leslie Ash(???) presenting a Tube special on New York nightlife is packed full of amazing sights and sounds, and it captures the looseness, vibrancy and danger that made it such a unique and iconic time and place. Enjoy.
