Keeping the Ku theme moving along this poster dates from 1990 and comes from the Ku Ibiza Best Years Facebook group 1978-1990. Like the way the designer spelled Rocky’s name wrong and also got the classic graffiti emblem the flying eyeball in there. There are some amazing photos and posters in the group if you want to see more.

This one came via Jolyon Green who discovered it on a Spanish forum. It sounds authentic – every so often someone says ‘KU’ on the mic. All it said on the file was KU 1984 Discoteca though the music dates it as more like ’85. One for the hardcore balearic heads.
Thanks to Jolyon.

Here’s a video I found on YouTube of a DJ (and later producer) Chicco Secci live at Ku in ’86. If you want to avoid ‘Holiday Rap’ (ha) then skip to 2 minutes. If you want to hear him play Prince ‘Mountains’ (a record I’ve always wanted to hear in a club) and then spin a 12″ on his finger skip to 4:20.
He must have enjoyed his times at Ku as he later made this in ’88 obviously inspired by his times there…
Anyway, Chicco Secci, if you’re out there give us a wave as I am sure you are sitting on tons of good tapes.

We posted this one before but it was terrible quality on YouTube so we’ve uploaded it again. This was the holy grail for many people and has been passed around on DVD for quite some time now. As many of you know it was a promotional video by the Ku nightclub in the mid 80s, has an amazing soundtrack (which may or may not have been an inspiration for one of Harvey’s most famous mixes), incredible scenery, great club shots and very balearic people.
Thanks to Phil Mison (originally) and Tim H on this one.
