Nasty Dirty Drama Don Ditches Beautiful People

Text by Jonty Skrufff (Skrufff.com)

Former Drama promoter Terry Hart chatted to Skrufff this week about his upcoming Nude party at Ministry Of Sound and revealed he's no longer targeting London's more flamboyant alternative clubbers.

"I would be a fool to ever promote a club again for just 'the beautiful people' like those that Drama supported and pioneered," Terry declared, "They never want to pay and they're always moaning 'it's not cool enough' to Jo and I. That's not what clubbing should be about; mix and match," he said.

"Nude is all about being equal so while we're encouraging people to dress up and express themselves, it's not the freak show that Drama used to be," he continued, "That whole electroclash era and scene doesn't exist anymore, in my eyes."

Nude's first party at Ministry features DJs including Smokin Jo (Terry's business partner), Mazzy Stah (Terry's protege) Secretsundaze' James Priestley (Terry's Go!zilla copromoter) and Dan Ghenacia, spinning mixed up styles from minimal to soul and electro; 'I hasten to add the electro part is not electroclash', Terry added.
