2011 ➤ Life? Tough? At the Blitz reunion, Rusty delivers a message to today’s 20-year-olds

❚ HERE’S THE ITEM FROM London Tonight, ITV’s six o’clock news magazine, reporting on the Return to the Blitz party hosted on Saturday by Steve Strange, Rusty Egan and Rose Turner on the site of the original Blitz club in Covent Garden. [Choose 360p for better quality video.] They’re celebrating the launch of their official website The Blitz Club and a load of moist-eyed old New Romantics from 1979 find themselves mingling with a sprinkling of floral Neo Romantics from 2011 who seem to have been let out of Shoreditch for a reality check. Featuring King of the Posers Steve Strange, Krautrock’s biggest fan, the deejay Rusty Egan and Spandau’s Martin Kemp (kept in hand by the wife, Shirlie) — you wouldn’t have been at all surprised to see Michael Aspel appear with his big red TIYL book.
