Mentors, "Police Hotel":
Listen everybody, you must understand
It's happening outside the Cathy DeGrande!
Beer's to expensive and you're poor
So head on down to the liquor store!

Life during wartime- Talking Heads

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
This ain't no fooling around
This ain't no mudd club, or C.B.G.B.
I ain't got time for that now

Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster


There's nothin' for us in Belfast
The Pound's old, and that's a pity
OK, so there's the Trident in Bangor




Saw a drummer friend of mine's band play in The Trident, which was more of a pub that put on bands than a dedicated music hall.

Wayne County & The Electric Chairs:


Alright, yeah, alright.
Take a tip from me and get ready for the big parade.
It's the place to be every night's a happy holiday.


The kids are jumping around, everybody's doing loop de loop.
Just a making the rounds like a speed freak in a telephone booth.
The downstairs is packed and the groupies are all dressed up.
Upstairs the New York Dolls are kickin' it out looking tough.
You've got a personality crisis baby.

Down at Max's.
All the boys are,
All the girls are,
All the kids are,
Down at Max's.

It seems to me to dream
Is something too wild
In Max's Kansas City
You a belladonna child
