The Birth of London’s Batcave Club

On this Date in 1982: The club Batcave opened its doors for the first time at The Gargoyle, 69-70 Dean Street W1 in London. Batcave, which became the first Goth punk club, was founded by members of the band Specimen. While they were not big in the US, Specimen had a few great songs such as “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” and “The Beauty of Poison,” which are both on my iPod. If you, too, have fond memories of dancing to these songs in dark, smoky clubs, you can download them (and others) from iTunes.

Thanks to The P5 Blogspot for the Tip!
