The Music of Nicholas Taylor


Back to home
David McDermott travels in time to his ever beloved self in early 20th century. He would show up most nights in his impeccable suits and hats that did date from that era. He was another wonderful soul who made the Mudd Club what it was, a conglomoration of crazy characters that all had disfunctional problems and at the same time were geniuses in their way of life. All had inner problems of some sort. Insecure but great musicians or self indulgent but great artists or madly insane and androgyinous enough to be charismatic. So many combos of weak and strong characters made up the place every night. Watch mini-celebrities all over. Handsome, ugly, gorgeous or plain retarded looking, it didn't matter because faith that the person next was cool and perhaps could begin now in an adventure into the sordid side of downtown NYC.
