Mai Tai: Le Beat Route, London

Chris Roberts, Sounds, 3 August 1985

FLINGING ON my best white suit and ballet shoes, I dived through the catflap and tricycled along to what could've been The Symbolic Death Of Soul if it hadn't been so funny. In the world's tackiest venue, Mai Tai sang (quite well) over backing tapes for about 14 minutes. As I've never been to Butlins I found it rather entertaining and educational.
