A new exhibition at Staten Island’s Snug Harbor Cultural Center will focus on memorabilia from the borough’s musical history.
DNAInfo says the show, called “Island Sounds,” will focus on not only Wu-Tang Clan and the New York Dolls, by far the most famous of Staten Island residents to reach musical fame, but also the metal band Living Color (you remember them from the single “Cult of Personality,” which has a pretty bonkers music video), the 19th-century harpist Maud Morgan (duh), the doo-wop group The Elegants and, uh, Buster Pointdexter, the alter-ego of the New York Dolls’ David Johansen and singer of the atrocious “Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot,” which will now be stuck in everyone’s head for the rest of the day (sorry).
Of the objects included in the exhibition, the keyboard RZA used when Wu-Tang Clan was recording their first album, 36 Chambers, sounds like the most exciting.
Alright, fine. We’ll watch the video for Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.”
