So I think I found someone (The Dude in the video) to compete with Gregg Allman for you ladies attention.

I also think it would be cool to see The ABB do this song at the Beacon.

I'm sure Warren could do a good cover of it.........

I actually remembered the "Parties" song from my "new wave years". I never knew who did it until I found it on youtube.

Cool man! This does sound like something I've heard before. I suppose I should not ask what Stiff is that the backup singer was also known for.

You beat me to A Flock of Seagulls Kenny; I really liked them and saw them at NYC's Peppermint Lounge in '81. That was a wild place, unlike 688, huge w/ many levels.

Kenny,

The kitchen is probably a good place at parties

Me and my cuz would always stake out a spot real close to the womens bathroom. We were guaranteed to see each girl at the place at least once....

BTW, wasn't this the motto of Stiff Records?

If it ain't Stiff it ain't worth a f**k

Stiff Records is a record label created in London in 1976 by entrepreneurs Dave Robinson and Andrew Jakeman (aka Jake Riviera), and active until 1985. It was reactivated in 2007.

Established at the outset of the punk rock boom, Stiff Records signed pub rock acts and marketed them as Punk and New Wave, including Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Ian Dury. The label's marketing and advertising was often provocative and witty. Stiff billed itself as "The World's Most Flexible Record Label". Other slogans were "We came. We saw. We left.", "If It Ain't Stiff, It Ain't Worth a F*ck", and "When You Kill Time, You Murder Success" (printed on promotional wall clocks). On the label of Stiff's sampler compilation Heroes & Cowards was printed: "In '78 everyone born in '45 will be 33-1/3". A very early Stiff sampler album, A Bunch of Stiff Records, introduced the slogan, "If they're dead, we'll sign them" and "Undertakers to the Industry".



Stiff also produced eccentric but highly effective promotional campaigns, such as the two package tours in 1977 and 1978, Stiffs Live, featuring most of the label's roster of artists performing at alternating times each night; Elvis Costello's "busking outside CBS Records" arrest and the 12 different wallpaper sleeves printed for Ian Dury's second album, Do It Yourself, with associated unscheduled makeovers of unsuspecting record shops.

Barney Bubbles was responsible for much of the graphic art associated with the early Stiff release

History

Robinson and Riviera were well-known London music business characters, Robinson having briefly worked for Jimi Hendrix in the late 1960s and also managed pub rock combo Brinsley Schwarz in the early 1970s, and Jakeman having been an early manager for another pub rock band, Dr. Feelgood, from Essex. The label was started with a loan of £400 from Lee Brilleaux of Dr. Feelgood.

Stiff found quick success. While its first (August, 1976) release (BUY 1) "So It Goes" c/w "Heart Of The City" by Nick Lowe didn't do so well, the follow up "Between The Lines" by perennially popular hippie outfit the Pink Fairies brought in enough funds to finance the release of what is generally accepted as the UK's first punk single "New Rose" by The Damned in November 1976 which was a veritable hit. Early in 1977 the label picked up speed, signing Wreckless Eric, Ian Dury, and Elvis Costello. Bigger sales followed, and a distribution deal with Island Records and EMI was set up. Each release was given individual attention, with inventive artwork, picture sleeves and a range of snappy slogans, often coupled with inventive marketing campaigns that achieved the label a great deal of notoriety, if not always huge profit margins.

Robinson and Riviera were a fiery management combination, and after a series of disagreements, Riviera left Stiff in early 1978 to form the short-lived Radar Records, taking Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Yachts with him as a settlement package. Riviera's departure coincided with the end of the "5 Live Stiffs Tour" which showcased emerging star Ian Dury, whose album New Boots & Panties had raced up the charts and kept the label in business over the following months. In 1979, Robinson signed Madness, whose considerable commercial success, both in Britain and abroad, would keep the label afloat for several years.

The next few years were the halcyon period for Stiff, with many Top 20 single chart placings (including the label's first No. 1 single: "Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick" by Ian Dury) and a number of big-selling albums. The label expanded rapidly and moved premises twice. It also continued to release dozens of totally obscure and often uncommercial releases (e.g., The Wit & Wisdom of Ronald Reagan--an LP that was completely silent on both sides, which actually had sales of over 30,000 copies - on Magic Records, with its own slogan: "If it sells, it must be Magic").

At the end of 1983, Island Records bought 50% of the label, with Robinson running both labels. Island was very short of money at the time and Robinson had to lend Island £1,000,000 to fund the share purchase and pay the Island payroll. Despite this, Island under Robinson had their best year ever with releases by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Legend by Bob Marley and U2's The Unforgettable Fire, among others. Stiff signed The Pogues, but Madness left Stiff under a cloud, the Island deal wasn't a success, and Dave Robinson regained control of the newly independent label in 1985. Hits by The Pogues and Furniture helped the label to survive another year and eight months but the reasons for the failure of the Island deal finally became too much of a burden on Stiff and the label was sold to ZTT. In 2007, ZTT and its parent company SPZ Group reactivated the label.

Although closely associated with punk rock and new wave, Stiff Records hosted a wide variety of players, including:

* The Adverts
* Any Trouble
* The Belle Stars
* The Bongos
* Joe "King" Carrasco & the Crowns
* Elvis Costello
* Devo; their single "Be Stiff" was later covered by several Stiff artists.
* The Damned
* Dr. Feelgood
* Ian Dury and the Blockheads
* Dave Edmunds
* Dirty Looks
* The Displacements
* The Enemy
* The Feelies
* Furniture
* Richard Hell and The Voidoids
* Mickey Jupp
* Jona Lewie
* Lene Lovich
* Nick Lowe, also Stiff's "in house" record producer
* Madness
* Kirsty MacColl
* Motörhead
* Graham Parker and The Rumour
* Pink Fairies
* Plasmatics
* The Pogues
* Rachel Sweet
* The Sports
* The Takeways
* Bobby Tench
* Tenpole Tudor
* Sean Tyla and the Tyla Gang
* Tracey Ullman
* The Undead
* Max Wall
* Larry Wallis
* Wreckless Eric
* Yachts
* Yello

I was trying to think of Rachel Sweet

thanks for the memory jog, kenny.

I loved the late Ian Dury and the Blockheads....Sex and dRugs and Rock and Roll, Sweet Gene Vincent.

I was living in UK during the mid/late 70's....punk then new wave....I saw siouxsie and the banshees in this grimy little pub. gotta love the punk energy and spitting abilities!!!

of course, the Sex Pistols!

some other favorites:

Stiff little fingers from Ireland -feargal sharkey's voice!
Stranglers' Rattus Norvegicus
clash

elvis costellos olivers army - when he was punk

Pogues - love them love them

Boomtown Rats, Geldoff.

Dexys Midnight Runners.

ahhhh the memories



U2 started out as a punk band in High schol, their first album, Boy really highlights the punk influence.

Ireland produces some incredibly talented artists

sorry I mixed the punk stuff in here, new wave quickly followed on the heels of punk.

I can't believe it, another Stranglers fan. I love em'.

I have almost completed my collection of their studio stuff, but only with Hugh Cornwell singing.

Punk is welcome, got to add that to the thread title.

I actually introduced many of these songs to the local college radio station I worked for from 83-85. WOXY. some of you may remember the scene in Rain Man where Dustin Hoffman kept repeating the line "97X....pow...the future of rock, and roll" That was us! Honestly though, I think I would have gone crazy if I listened to it all the time then. Thank God SRV came on the scene.
