Well we’ve all had one. Think back to that first time you walked into the world of night clubs in Brisbane. Was it Rumours, Patches, Tracks, Transformers, Pips, Chequers, Whispers, Manhattans,The Move or even Grand Orbit, Super Deluxe, Mary Street, Mass or Alice’s Rock Cafe? Or somewhere else (or even Someplace Else!).
Thinking back I do recall upstairs at the Cockatoo Bar at the Beat early 80′s celebrating my 17th birthday. We then went on to Trinity Place (does anyone remember the Bruce Lee fluro painting on the dancefloor?). That was a big night alright. I teased the hair up and wore a shirt I made that I had painted lots of banana’s with top hats on. I teamed it with a pair of op shop tuxedo pants and pointy flats. Classy.
Can you remember where you went, what you wore and what you danced to?
