Clay and the Duran Duran guys. The Duran Duran guys (so named because
they performed the Duran Duran lip syncs, and did a bloody good job)
put on English accents. They were very good English accents and the
guys were never out of character while at Skyfeathers. They had the
clothes, the accents and the attitudes. If Duran Duran didn't already
exist, these guys could have been them!
Clay was another guy who put on an English accent. A very charming fellow, I only found out he wasn't from the UK because once he was really drunk at a party (outside of Skyfeathers) and his accent fell away - BUSTED! I also remember him requesting Scritti Politti (whom I had never heard of) and it soon became a favorite.
mohawk guy martial arts (Jason?), hung out with Pat Ward
Mohawk John (Etheridge) - John:"Do I stink?" Me:"Yes." John:"Good."
Ed, the bouncer. An incredibly big guy, always impeccably dressed. You couldn't move him out of the way with a backhoe, and he wasn't fat-big, he was wide-as-a-house-strong-big. One tough guy refused to leave when Buddy ordered him out and still didn't leave with the possible threat of Ed enforcing the order. A few moments later he found himself lying down in the parking lot, propelled from the building by an unstoppable force and these words - "Ed, get him outta here."
Deeanne (?) - manager. worked with Buddy before Skyfeathers. she worked behind the bar with me sometimes.
Stu - Very tall, helped with the finances (accounting and such I believe). Had an affinity for Talking Heads. I think he had a few pieces of electronic percussion at his house. Another very cool guy.
Cathy - of Stu and Cathy. also part of the administration end of Skyfeathers.
Ben was, among other things, the first DJ for the New Wave room. Ben was a very cool guy. He kinda reminded me of the lead singer of Big Country. Then at some point he was leaving. I never knew the reason, though there seemed to be some bad vibes. I think he also helped with some tech things, like hooking up the audio gear properly.
DJ/MC/Rapper main floor - I can't remember this guy's name [update: Buddy refreshed my memory - QG, as in "Quality Guaranteed"] but his trademark was that he could rap at breakneck speed, like a machine gun.
Karen and Rose. - Two lovely sisters who gave me my first bilevel haircut and bleach (like this).
