Bogus Slogan Poster Series

When Host Spittle was uncovered as Bogus Slogan’s punk alter ego, there was demand for additional concerts. Several of these additional shows were back in the areas where BS played as HS. The band wanted this particular venue because of the picture used in Bogus Slogan Poster #90.

Mott’s New York Loft, was a gentlemen’s club in Open City, Ohio. It had been redeveloped from a burlesque theater of the 1930’s. Seats had been removed and stored. The open floor had been recontoured with large ramps which connected new seating and dancing areas. A bar ran the entire length of the stage front. Girls, in their costumes used the stage as a warm up area. Stretches and squats and twists. Being seen at the bar was a popular social calling.

At the band’s concert, the girls danced. By personal choice, all tips went to charity. On the bill were The Isolationists. They had also been on the bill where Host Spittle’s true identity had been disguised. They had complained about having to follow the headliners playing “before” them. They said they had been practicing and were ready for a rematch.

Mr. Mott’s photo is a staircase with a wooden bannister and metal stanchions. A window on a lower floor accents the railing. Industrial plumbing adorns a lower wall. The dirt, rust and debris are the antithesis of the Mott’s New York Loft. And while the public building in the photo is abandoned, the gentlemen’s club was filled to capacity. 625 of the patrons took a Bogus Slogan Poster #90 home.

Host Spittle made a final EP, “Man Down!” A salute to the punk world. It sold quite well. The band will occasionally play a Host Spittle set at festivals. But the return to an evolving Bogus Slogan was always the plan.
