Strip club is denied the right to play music

November 17, 2017 by norman lebrecht


A so-called adult venue in Newcastle has been penalised at the High Court in London for playing recorded music without a performing right licence.

So what happens now?

Probably the young women put their clothes on and learn to play an instrument.


Not like this.

    Or hire Simone Kermes or that gimmicky violinist whose name escapes me. Or the pianist with the notoriously beautiful hair (the only good quality one notices) whose name also escapes me.

      Perhaps you mean Linda Lampenius? At times she actually seems to be a pretty good violinist. I wonder whether she *could* have been a very good violinist had she focused on her serious musical career, instead of allowing herself to be distracted by sidelines in modelling and crossover. In a way she seems to be the complete opposite of Katherine Jenkins: Katherine Jenkins has no musical talent but is clearly a canny businesswoman with sufficient awareness of her limitations to forge a hugely successful career as a crossover artist, model, actress, tv presenter, and professional celebrity, whereas Linda Lampenius seems to have been a genuinely talented violinist who gave up a potentially successful career as a serious musician in order to further more frivolous pursuits.

    DJs in lap dance and pole dance clubs in Newcastle all have licences! No girl is going to waste time with a fiddle, sure they only have a g string on for your tenner tip!

    Newcastle lap dance and pole dance clubs have DJs all licenced, the girls would not waste time with fiddles, sure they only have g strings to hold your tenner tip!

    I think you’ll find they all play ‘an instrument’ extremely well.
