Jerry Lewis

The Music of Nicholas Taylor


Back to home
Michael Holman was a driving force at the Mudd Club. His Soul Parties were the most interesting parties of the club's era. The second floor was transformed into a big soul brother's pad complete with thick fake fur carpets and a bed that only the smoothest of soul brother could have. He had black lights and cool posters from that era as well. For a week or two he took over the club. Michael was also (and still is) a great dancer. In the pic to the right he is in the middle of his Jerry Lewis dance and he could also do James Brown steps extremely well! He in the band, Michael is a true genius that is non stop on high adrenaline, out to change the world into one hip place. He was the first man to use the term "Hip Hop" in writing in an article in the East Village Eye as early as 1982. His influence as an original player in the early Hip Hop days is vastly underrated.
