If I Were A Gangster...

The Music of Nicholas Taylor and Nomi of Jessica 6


Back to home

East First Street in the East Village in the late 70's early eighties, very hot! The cast of wondering through on any given day has inspired through-out the years. Michael Holiman, Jean-Michel Basquiat Suzanne Mallouk, John Harris (all lived there) Justin Thyme, Vincent Gallo, David Bowes, George Condo, Dan Asher, Stuart Argabright, Danny Rosen, Arto Lindsay, Rene Ricard, Debi Mazar, Madonna, Viki Galves, Claudia Porcelli, Jorge Socarrás Phase 2, Fab Five Freddy, K-Rob, Timmy T, Ali, A-one, Toxic, Rock Steady Crew, New York City Breakers etc... many a night recordings would be made with some of this cast of characters and saved on cassette tapes, yet to be bootlegged...

With Jorge Socarrás pictured to the right, journeyed to SF and then on to Sydney in Summer of '79. Manly Beach of all places setting up a most beautiful pose!
