Private party, greensboro, N.c., 1985

This gig was cursed from the start.

Bob Hair knew some people who rented out a former men's clothing store for a party and he talked them into getting T.B. to play, for good money. We had the cassette release "Tasty Cakes" floating around and our sound was heavily percussive.

What's the problem you might ask? To start with, Dlux had been pestering this influential Raleigh club owner and impresario, Harry something, for a show, and he finally relented. But it was the same night as the party. So the Raleigh show was cancelled and we never got in there.

The men's clothing store still had the wooden shelves up, and our sound was bouncing off the shelves and then the walls. But the crowd was open-minded and dancing; we had a dub-step sound before it existed. The show was going OK, until a fellow I will generously call a "local" came up after one song, perhaps "Permanent," and said something like this:

"I know what you are trying to do and I don't like your music. You suck and you should play something we know and like."

Bob got so offended that he immediately stopped the show, and we packed up and left.
