Macho Men

What is that about, I asked R. Dressed up as the Village People, was his reply. Later we found out Village People were in town that weekend and performing so I guess these really were the Village People. Our tram was coming, so we did not hang around to see them.


  1. Disco!!
    God the late 70's were great - dancing on the table at The Love Machine. Teddy Pendergrass - woot woot!
    Then Punk happened.
    No punk in the Village People.
    damn right.
    *goes off singing "she works hard for the money, so hard for it honey."

  2. Were you going west, young man?? Sorry ... but take that as payback for quoting AB Paterson at me!!

    Happy Travels!!

    You and R should have danced the YMCA for them.......:)

    God they must be all 60years of age or more by now?

  4. everything about them was JOYOUS, and yes Anon, the original members would be 56, 58, 59, 60, and 63 - nearly as old as Mick Jagger and Cliff Richard (who has just done SRO shows).

  5. Seventies, disco. That is all that matters Ann.

    East actually RNO. I like Pet Shop Boys version of Go West better.

    Anon, the only dance like that I learnt was Nutbush City Limits.

    Ha Em Stacks, older than me!

    Maybe they should rename themselves to The Village Geriatrics.

    70's disco was great though.

  7. Perhaps Anon. They still sell out concerts.


Before you change something, find out why it is the way it is in the first place - unknown.
