I've never lived in England. I never went clubbing in the 80's. And, as far as I know, this club, the Xclusiv, in Batley, West Yorkshire is not especially well-known. But when I came across this hokey, poorly-produced, 2-hour promotional video for the Xclusiv club, I watched it end-to-end, nonstop, and was utterly transported.
It starts with a short, super-dry introduction to the town ("the unemployment resulted in extra leisure time, henceforth the development of many new leisure industries"?!) and the club, and then the rest of it is just candid footage of people filtering into the club, socializing and dancing, punctuated now and then by comically dry interviews with workers and attendees which epitomize culture shock. It's pure gold.
Let me set the time frame for you: they were playing "new sort-of alternative music like Echo & the Bunnymen, Siouxsie & the Banshees". Exquisite, exquisite nostalgia. #Batley #Goth #80s
