Cluuuub Tamanguuuu

Book: Skagboys

Author: Irvine Welsh

Music: I Really Love You

Artist: The Tomangoes

It’s coincidental that yesterday’s post featured a Northern Soul classic that inspired a memory of a nightclub I attended in my teenage years in Ireland. This song by The Tomangoes sparks another Irish nightclub-related recollection. That was related to the late 80s but this one is from earlier, probably the 70s or very early 80s. RTE Radio ran ads for Club Tamango’ in Portmarnock in Dublin. The way the guy said it … “Cluuuub Tamanguuuuu,where the gang goes.” It all sounded impossibly exotic to someone for whom a small, rural market town was home.
