Fab journo Katherine Feeney has written an article based around footage that she saw filmed at Tracks nightclub in the 80′s. She also interviewed me about Clubbed Out and going out in the 80′s. Great footage of the club and fashion too. This project is keen for any footage, photos or memorabilia and of course your stories. Lots of people have commented how they would take photos before going out, but no one would take their cameras out with them. Cameras were expensive and a lot of them were bulky. As for video or film, any that we’ve found (very little so far) was done by the venue operators.
Since the article has been up, I’ve received a lot of comments and feedback about the project so thank you all. If you haven’t already seen it take a look, it’s worth a gander and yes the podium dancers are included!
I’ll be posting more of your recollections as well. If you have some interesting stories and recollections you can leave a comment or go to contribute and fill out a survey form.
