PRETTY IN PINK
We play the best bits of the late 70s and the 80s, plus occasional surprises from other years, on two floors. Both floors are quite different, but you'll probably hear certain 'new wave' bands upstairs and downstairs, e.g.
DAVID BOWIE, SMITHS, CURE, BLONDIE, PSYCHEDELIC FURS, SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES, IGGY POP, JOY DIVISION / NEW ORDER, ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, SISTERS OF MERCY, SIMPLE MINDS, TALKING HEADS, PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED, ALTERED IMAGES, ASSOCIATES, etc
Downstairs in the basement, we mix these up with the best alternative/glam-friendly new romanticism, pop, dance and rock, such as...
DURAN DURAN, HUMAN LEAGUE, JAPAN, DEPECHE MODE, PET SHOP BOYS, MADONNA, PRINCE, SOFT CELL, CULT, GUNS N' ROSES, ADAM & THE ANTS, SPECIALS, SPARKS, DONNA SUMMER, CHIC, ABC, JAM, TRANSVISION VAMP, A-HA, VISAGE, OMD, BAUHAUS, ROXY MUSIC, etc
(Notice the deliberate lack of cheese!)
And upstairs on the ground floor, we throw in more alternative, indie, punk and post-punk, including the likes of...
PIXIES, FALL, MAGAZINE, RAMONES, SONIC YOUTH, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, WIRE, WEDDING PRESENT, ORANGE JUICE, GANG OF FOUR, PATTI SMITH, TELEVISION, GO-BETWEENS, DEXYS MIDNIGHT RUNNERS, REPLACEMENTS, NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, DEVO, etc
THE CANCER GARDEN
Guest Dj Slot with States Of Flux
Joan Of Arc Family
Remebrance of one of the best Record Company EVER existed.
That night will be a stroll down to memory lane from most .
Even if we didn't live those years ourselves (is because of we are too "young" or for any other reason), we still live under the influence of bands that were able to depict the steadfasteness of life in an industrial era dominated by greyness, boredom and social and political discontent.
A group of artists that have been able to stay alive through the years and through their genuine passion for the music they made.
