Chi Chi Valenti NYC 1979

Photo and music copywrite: Nicholas Taylor

Chi Chi was on the second floor of The Mudd Club and walking by. A lot of fun such cherished memories.. The action of interesting people coming and going was so swift because of the fashions. The different genres of attire such as Chi Chi's classic look, every night she is so exquisite. The Mudd Club had the Teddy Boys (hard core guys with attitudes and big Elvis coifs), Rasta's like Dirty Harry from the movie Rockers, New Wave, No Wave, Punk and the renagade Studio 54 crowd coming downtown. Small parties of these genres gathering around at their tables and would go back and forth to the bar. Some people and groups of people would meet at the same spot at the club each night. The Thrift Shop designer suit was in full swing and you could sometimes get 3 suits for $10! The dark cloud of a short lived Democratic President (Carter) would transform into the next era of Right Wing Reagonism, Aids and Hip Hop's influence ending the Mudd Club parties. Not to mention the owner tried to bribe an IRS agent and did a 10 year bid!
