Much underrated photobook of ‘The World’- A club that seemed to span the twilight years from the end of disco to the beginnings of house music. Run from a disused 1920’s dancehall, and attracting a diverse clientele of Banjees, Voguing houses, straights, fags, the staff of the Tunnel, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fag Bar crew, Larry Tee in a silk flared jumpsuit and a bunch of famous people (Keith Haring, Madonna, Brooke Shields, Prince, Stephen Sprouse etc.) So- the book- full of amazing images, few quotes at the front and back, and a killer colour section in the centre. Very atmospheric and cool as hell.
