Unfortunately this was the last listenable Rats album. Peppi became a more "sensitive" songwriter after FRTR.

where was the "fox"
i remember "zaffy's" (sp)
Avatar Wed. 2/17/16 9:18pm slugluv1313:

and Zaffy's too!
Red Fox Inn was on the outskirts of New Brunswick -- Somerset/North Brunswick?

Dog show set tonight?
Avatar Wed. 2/17/16 9:19pm chris_in_space:

Ok this version of Cracked Actor is off the hook. Never heard TS sound like this before.

Duh. It's a Twisted Sister themed show. Ugh. I gotta read the fine print.

  Wed. 2/17/16 9:20pm Hackensack Slim:

@tonyb The Red Fox was on Rte 27 a little west (south?) of downtown New Brunswick. Zaffy's was in Piscataway.

yes, Red Fox Inn was on Route 27! (had been there many times but a loooooong time ago!)
AND apparently founded by a . . . HUNGARIAN! www.legacy.com...

thanks, folks!
forgive a bit of memory lane.

@slugluv Thanks for the Red Fox origins info. RIP William "Bela" Revesz

I remember Rat Race Choir. They opened for John Entwistle when he played The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie. Maybe they were his backing band; memory not clear about that.
Avatar Wed. 2/17/16 9:41pm Loretta:

I remember Rat Race Choir from a small club in Yonkers, NY...... very early 70's, I think.

@ Hackensacl Slim -- cannot seem to find much of anything on the Red Fox Inn on Route 27 -- an abandoned building by the same name in Wayne, NJ -- but thought for sure there would be more!

There is a screening of the film in my town tonight that I couldn't make it to, nice to hear the interview and some tunes instead.

fine point!

drinking age > 21 was huge
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/17/16 10:08pm JakeGould:

@tonyb: Also, the way NYC “cabaret” laws changed under Giuliani. All of the small clubs just couldn’t exist.
Avatar Wed. 2/17/16 10:10pm geezerette:

Yes, forgot about Giuliani!

NO DANCING!
or something more?

I saw Twisted Sister open for the Ra
Avatar Wed. 2/17/16 10:19pm tonyb:

whole lot of rosie/sin city/she's got the jack.
all pretty good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/17/16 10:22pm JakeGould:

@tonyb: Drinking age was 18 before 1982. Then became 19 in 1982. And then in 1985 it became 21. Then Giuliani discovered the whole cabaret law nonsense and became a jerk about it. Good details here. gawker.com...

Also, I turned 17 in 1985 so I get to hear all this great music and heard about all these great bars and clubs and then… Bam… It’s all fading before my eyes.
  Wed. 2/17/16 10:22pm Todd:

I saw Twisted Sister open for the Ramones at Hammerheads in the 70s
  Wed. 2/17/16 10:23pm Hackensack Slim:

@Todd Sun Ra? Quite an eclectic bill.
  Wed. 2/17/16 10:31pm Todd:

Todd, Don't freak out, but check out 34 across.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/17/16 10:38pm efd:

Todd, what's the clue?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/17/16 10:39pm JakeGould:

@tonyb: It’s also why there are no cool cafes anymore. Bleecker Street was filled with them even in the early 1980s. Then it became just cover bands and NYU blues bros. Now it’s nothing.
  Wed. 2/17/16 10:43pm Todd:

___ Snyder (Dee in the grid)

@efd: I heard Jeb Bush posted a 45 with a matrix code that said, “America.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/17/16 10:53pm Stevel:

I like Dark Blue, and I like them at 45 rpm.
  Wed. 2/17/16 10:56pm Todd:

Great show btw. I grew up on LI, and I saw all those bands at the megaclubs with my brother when I was home from college on breaks

You know, I bet Paul Bellini’s ears are really ringing right now. When was the last time he got this much airplay in the U.S. Kudos to the unknown “Kid in the Hall.”

@JakeGould - Since this is SoundExchange week, he'll notice a significant uptick in his next royalty check.
