♠ ♠ --- ♠ ♠ --- ♠ ♠ --- ♠ ♠ --- ♠ ♠ --- ♠ Web Fact, Blitz Kids: The Blitz Kids were a short- lived
group of then-unknown people who frequented the Blitz nightclub in Covent Garden,
London in the very early 1980s. Among their number were Steve Strange, Boy George
and his friend Marilyn, Perri Lister, Princess Julia, Philip Sallon, Carl Teper and Martin
Degville (later to be the frontman of Tony James' Sigue Sigue Sputnik). The club was
known for its outrageous style of clothes and make-up for both sexes, while it was also a
birth place of several pop groups. After beginning at Billy's nightclub in the late 1970s,
the Blitz Kids had found themselves bored with the whole punk genre. Billy's had taken
to having regular Roxy Music and David Bowie nights and, in an effort to find something
new, the denizens took to wearing bizarre home-made costumes and clothing and
excessive amounts of make-up, presenting a highly androgynous appearance. As the
group moved on from Billy's to the more elitest "Blitz" club, this was widely considered
to be the birth of the New Romantic movement. Soon after, Steve Strange and Boy
George became famous in their own right with their musical outings Visage and Culture
Club respectively, as did vocalist Marilyn. Carl Teper went on to become a distinguished
British Judge. .
