78'l‘he List 7 20 December 1990


- Top Five Fave Haves chosen by Tam



Coyle oi Glasgow's Hypnotonic Soundtrack.

1. Temptation: New Order (greatest song lrom Britain's greatest band. Also released two of the best album oi the 80s in ‘Power Corruption and Lies' and ‘Technique’).

2. White Lines: Grandmaster Flash

(still as relevant today, perhaps more so, than when it was released. It still mystilles me why drugs are seen as glamorous in certain circles).

3. 1 Feel Love: Donna Summer (probably the most obvious selection lrom her work with Giorgio Moroder. However classics were what I was to list, and this track certainly qualities as that).

4. Pull Up To The Bumper: Grace Jones (so many memories 01 Bennets when I started clubbing in the early 80s - Roxy Music, Bowie, Divine, and at course Grace ‘Sock It To Me’ Jones).

5. Homosapien: Pete Shelley (Classic track from Maestros in the early 80s, along with any James Brown, “Follow

- the Leader' by Killing Joke, ‘Bela

Lugosi’ by Bauhaus, ‘Tainted Love’ by

Soit Cell. Maybe I’m getting nostalgic, but to my mind no present-day club has the atmosphere that Maestros had).

reportedly v busy. playing the usual obscure and fashionable house and techno. with ‘all kinds‘ ofother musictoo. they tell me.

I Helter Skelter at the Mayfair. 10.30pm--3.30am. £2. The Skelters are planning a few Christmas extravaganzas in the forthcoming weeks. which raises the bizarre prospect of its goths and rockers in full festive clobbcr - all black with tinsel round their necks?
