AT LEAST IM NOT POSTING DRUG ADDICTS AND MEN WEARING MAKE-UP.

BEYOURSELF!

 

You left out murderers! :D I know it's not most peoples cup of tea but a lot of writers went to those clubs

It's not graffiti related but anyone from the city before a certain year bumped heads with these people or at least went to one of the many legendary haunts. The outlaws were just a way to gather people to go back to the clubs once the police showed up.

 

Check out the movie the guy who made Cocaine Cowboys just made and you'll see the importance:

"The Grifters are always down for a good adventure. They recently snapped some photos of their recent exploration of the tunnels underneath Paris, known as the catacombs. The catacombs are tunnels beneath the Parisian city, that houses the bones from the deceased during the dark ages. The bodies were disposed in these tunnels, due to a lack of space for burial ground in the city. Despite the catacombs being a tourist destination; there are still sections of the tunnel that are not available for tour viewing. This leads to the more adventurous crowd finding more obscure and less traveled areas. In this section of the tunnel The Grifters visited we see Nov york, and Sacer tags in the cut. Always a cool sight to see local New York dudes, hitting extremely cutty spots overseas."

true - -

 

I have access to a complete series on VHS of a nyc public access show called Krash Boom TV about club kids

 

" I presented the best club related events at the beginning of

each program (from Limelight, Tunnel, Club USA and numerous other

locations) with 'openings', 'outlaw' and 'theme' parties, mostly featuring

Alig, Desi Monster, Kabuki, Astro Earl, Olympia, Richie Rich, Angel, Sofia,

Walt Paper, Kenny Kenny and dozens of others, some unrecognizable under the

fabulous make-up and costumes. At celebrity dinners and publicity events I

gladly filmed Grace Jones or Quentin Crisp and other cool creative people..."

 

have yet to digitize it but it must have some cool history in there --

Forreal. That club era in NYC is as much of a part of NY as any of the graffiti. That Limelight documentary was DOPE. So much old great footage.

RIP NELSON! yes I have seen them all and I posted some of his footage a page or two ago. Anyone interested in Clayton Patterson or anything downtown NY NEEDS to look at everything Nelson Sullivan ever did. Clayton picked up his first camera from Nelson supposedly.
