Dear Motherf**kers, !
I regret to announce the end to another era in clubland. Motherfucker, is no more. For the last year or so, relations between the 4 partners has been strained and finally it reached it's inevitable breaking point. We did not anticipate our exit to be so abrupt but alas, life throws curve balls at all of us when least expected.
We'd like to take a moment to thank some very special "family members". Starting with, our Mother, Chi Chi Valenti...Ms. Valenti green lighted our first party at Mother...and the rest, as they say is history.
Special thanks also goes to: Misstress Formika, Thomas Onorato, Brian Damage, Whitey, Andy Shaw, Peppermint Gummybear, Dave P, DJ Jess, Ted-E & Raffaele, Siouxz from Magnum & David Casey.
Of course, we'd like to thank all of our Hosts, Door staff, guest DJ's, go-go dancers, sponsors and all the incredible acts that graciously performed at our party...
The Cramps, NY Dolls, ESG, The Rapture, Bloc Party, !!!, The Bravery, The Faint, Morningwood, Radio 4, Theo & The Sky Scrapers &The Realistics.
We'd also like to thank all the fabulous Nightclub Icons who graced our stage; Amanda Lepore, Lady Bunny & The Incredible Willi Ninja and The House of Ninja.
Furthermore,we would not have had half of our inspiration had it not been for the parties that preceeded us and showed us the way: Greendoor, Squeezebox, Disco 2000, Tiswas & Jackie 60!
As all of you know, we were the "roving Rock n Roll holiday party" so a very big thanks goes out to all the clubs that hosted our event. In particular, The Roxy, Rebel [formerly Downtime], Spirit, Eugene, and for those who remember club Heaven...September 9th 2001...two days later NYC would be altered forever.
Last but not least, the three original clubs that housed the party, True, Meow Mix...long live Brooke Webster and of course Mother.
And finally, we'd like to thank all of you sick and crazy Motherfuckers who attended the party throughout the years, come rain, come shine, long lines outside, long lines for the bathrooms. The dedication that so many of you showed throughout the years is paramount and unmatched when it comes to "club loyalty". You never let us down...ever!
I don't know if there will ever be another Motherfucker. Perhaps... will all the stars be that aligned again...doubtful.
Lastly, I have to thank Ms. Diana Ross for releasing the fiercest song ever. Did MF give you the sweetest "Love Hangover"?.... OVAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the Motherfucker email list - this was announced a few days ago, I believe. Kudos to the kids for carrying on the Mother Legacy for so many years, and so well. It is so fitting that the night is breaking up like a rock band...
