‘Take A bow ye pirates of sleaze! Your raping & pillaging ceased, bow before the hungry throngs who lap at your feet & cry for more!’
‘The Theatre Of Pain draws to a close, the fires subside & the bodies lay scattered amongst the ruins & carnage.’
The Sleaze Patrol Files offers up a video compilation of the band taking their bows before their rabid fans from 1984 to 1991.
The best example of the Motley exit would have to be the one director Wayne Isham filmed at the end of the ‘Home Sweet Home’ video. The band genuflects before their audience (we are watching them from behind) & each band member doubles back to exit backstage & signals a final good-bye to the camera. Nice stuff. [The official 1985-6 video is currently hard to find online. Here’s the best I could do for now but I’ll try to upload or link an HQ version]
