male rockers were meant to be potent. this guy looked like he'd faint if you touched him .. or he might stab you with a pen.

I really liked the Talking Heads nervous look, but it was Patti's confrontational sexuality that knocked me for a loop. Up so close I could smell her.
Avatar 6:40pm UncleMarty:

TTC has been sampled so much they bought beach houses ..... LoL
Avatar 6:40pm Linda Lee:

if i remember right it was sort of all Punk for a while, domestically. New Wave was the Stiff people.. the Brits .. then we had No Wave in new york.
Avatar 6:41pm Linda Lee:

Patti was extremely confident & quite butch.
  6:41pm phat:

@Therese very true. On another note, sometimes I think Cowgirl in the Sand is the greatest sounding record ever made. Holy. Hell.

i distinctly remember some wise-ass kid bringing 'never mind the bollocks' to class (high school, senior year) & lending it around so we could hear it. no radio play yet.

I never read Biographies but someone gave me #1 of Patty's Bio -- well worth reading... Could she really not have knwn that Mapplethorpe was Bi-Gay???

Avatar 6:50pm Linda Lee:

i realized i was bisexual in the mid 70s at school, but there was no descriptive languagee for my feelings. i just did what i did, felt what i felt. finally, in about 85, the word 'bisexual' came into consciousness. people found it a fascinating concept.

@Linda Lee Do we know each other? Have we hung out together? Were you a big fan of The Senders?
Avatar 6:52pm Linda Lee:

a girl i knew was deeply in love with someone who identified to her as bisexual. i had to explain to her what was going on in his head. as if i knew! :-)
Jett, i'm not sure! can't say i remember The Senders now.

Devos were @ Kent State for the shootings - formative for views.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Seen Devo for the first time in 1977 on a bill with Blondie,Weirdos and others, it struck me how advanced and committed they were. Bands are always more memorable if they are put into contrast with other bands.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm coelacanth∅:

anarchy in the uk and god save the queen got play on wnew, but it didn't do much for me. just mediocre rock and roll songs with snarly singing! i was already into the clash by then and saw them as a beautiful day dawning, compared to being banished to live in a filthy bathroom!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Franco Twinkie:

I remember when Pretty Vacant came out as a 45 on Warner Brothers it got a lot of airplay on a short lived AM station in L.A. with a lot of high energy DJ screaming. I clearly remember hearing it driving down the Pasadena Freeway, and that car DID NOT have a FM radio.
  7:02pm P-90:

WABC is what everyone switched to when WMCA switched to talk radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm coelacanth∅:

...and sexpistols didn't last long enough to be turned to shit by producer glyn johns. they surely would have, but instead went out with the rock n roll swindle - true to form and in my opinion more respectable than the combat rock abomination.
  7:03pm phat:

Avatar 7:03pm Linda Lee:

that sounds lovely, Franco. :-)

WABC musicradio 77 was good but a lot of commercials, so later years it was 97 WWDJ for me and eventually WABC - FM and WOR-FM.

Coel, I liven down the street from KROQ. My neighbors brother was a DJ and we were allowed in the studio while he was doing his show, just as long as we didn't open our mouths. They had a green room with some furniture that looked like it was 'borrowed' from the hotel across the street. One particular end table had a pile of promo records free for the taking.

Last I heard the revived Holiday Cocktail Lounge on St. Marks was still thriving (if that’s a word one could ever apply to that place), but that was before The Lockdown...

oh my. the Holiday.

TR3 many times, never saw the Slits there, but saw them in many other places. I loved hanging out at Irving Plaza, my home, away from home. I felt like I owned that place.

Therese, 1st time listener in Hotlanta. Was sooooooo excited when I heard Follow Your Bliss as the music bed. I used it on my college show back in the late 90's.
YES! (with fist pump)
Avatar 7:25pm Linda Lee:

Therese, for books by female rockers i'd recommend June Millington's memoir "Land Of A Thousand Bridges". just an amazing story. she & her sister Jean were the core of Fanny, the first all female band to secure a major label album deal. just phenomenal musicians. fascinating tales.

NYC was such a cool place during that period @Linda Lee

Thank you for reminding me, Linda! That's been on my list.

was King Tut's after hours? for a while there we had some very nice after hours clubs on the LES. the names, of course..

Tired rehashed historically flat content. Try allot harder. I've been listening for 30 years and this show is profoundly mediocre.

I was very involved in the music biz, and had been doing a regular radio show on WHBI-FM at the time, well into the early eighties. For a short time Rocks In Your Head record store and NY Rocker sponsored my radio show.
Avatar 7:30pm RobinSays:

I'm pretty sure King Tut's was open regular bar hours. I remember Save The Robots on Avenue B as an after-hours place...
Avatar 7:30pm Linda Lee:

after the bars closed you'd just head over to the after hours places & hang out til 8 or 9 AM..

Coel, the sleeve, which has a very funny type written screed says Submission. But the actual record which is a radio station copy has Pretty Vacant on both sides. Stereo and mono.

So I showed up to work one morning in bk about 7 years ago, midway thru some mushrooms. I let my one friend know, the one who would get me thru this situation I'd created. He immediately went to the radio and put Jump Into The Fire on. Everything was okay from there on out that day..
