Cum Clubbing

The Garage, Vivid, 2009

Cum Clubbing was the first of a trilogy of parties that included Get Bent! and Bang! Bang!

Cum Clubbing was presented as part of Sleeve Notes, a residency at VIVID that examined the spaces where popular culture fraternises with the canonical world of art and the individuals who played a significant, often underground role in shaping the music, fashion, and club scenes in Birmingham during the late 70s and 1980s.

Cum Clubbing! For one night only VIVID hosts an art party inspired by the colourful club nights of Birmingham’s underground scenes in the 1980s.

VIVID’s project space will be taken over by live music, DJs and visual artists who’ll conspire to create an excitingly strange evening of camp disco!

DJs include 80s original John Lupton (aka ‘Gay John’), the brains behind Bradford Street’s outrageously lewd and notorious Cum Club; and Brian Duffy, award winning sound artist and creator of The Modified Toy Orchestra. Also at VIVID Jugend Klub’s John Napier and Tropical Hotdog’s Greg Haines will play an exotic selection of sexy 80s party tunes. Expect [insert artist], [insert artist] to name a few…
