❚ CHRISTMAS APPEAL FROM RUSTY EGAN — The ex-Rich Kids and Visage drummer, and musical co-host at the original Blitz Club in Covent Garden in 1979 now enjoys an international reputation as a society deejay.
On Sunday December 11, he and Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman are inviting readers of Shapersofthe80s to help raise money for charity. Rusty says: “Please support our Vintage 80s night in a nice Mayfair pub this Xmas and join me and friends. I will DJ and I hope some friends from the 80s will show up for a pint or a cuppa. Please buy a ticket even if you are unable to attend.”
The two 80s popstars have reunited in a unique nightclub double act where deejay Rusty spins the discs while Steve improvises on sax. Proud of their clubbing credentials which reach back to the landmark Blitz Club, Steve and Rusty perform a live deejay set of the coolest tunes from the swinging decade. Every performance is unique and reminds us of their own bands’ legacies and of the abundance of new sounds the 80s bequeathed.
