Uncle Jam’s Army: Mobile Disco Dances To A Different Beat

Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 30 October 1983

A GROUP OF MODS, coats festooned with badges of their favorite bands and likenesses of the "Two-Tone" man, snake around the perimeter of the dance floor. Some young break dancers have cordoned off a corner to allow one of their number enough room to drop to the flow and run through a dizzyingly acrobatic routine. Another couple bump and grind against each other in the free-form style that’s been appropriately dubbed "The Nasty."
