Young Limbs Rise Again: The Story of the Batcave Nightclub 1982-1985

£34.99

Released: 24th February 2023. London 1982. As the new romantic youthquake of 1981/1982 faded, and after what felt like a lifetime since punk's last gasp, a tiny nightclub opened its doors in London's Soho. Drawing to it a new generation of misfits and miscreants with a penchant for polysexual hedonism, for dressing up and showing out, The Batcave became the dark heart of alternative club culture, just like The Roxy and The Blitz before it. This 20-track collection captures both the fun and freedom of The Batcave and a revolutionary moment in time. It's also the first to reflect the musical influences on the scene and how that scene pointed forwards. Above everything else, it's a fascinating evocation of what you'd have actually heard had you stumbled into that sweaty, energetic dive between '82 and '84. With its very strong tracklisting, 'Young Limbs Rise Again' includes music from just about everybody that mattered - from The Cure to The Sisters of Mercy to The Birthday Party.
