Whisper your name in an empty room



Whilst cleaning out our garden shed on Friday, I found a treasure trove of old band pix....
This selection is from 3 seperate gigs during 1991; the band I was in was The Babels....
OMG, so loooong ago!
The pix were taken by an older gent who liked to come along to all the local gigs and take pix of the girls, particularly....he wasn't really dodgy, but it was a little odd!
Enjoy!

What a great find! They're amazing photos (regardless of your 'photographer's' possible motives). Rock on!

Incredible pix - you were and are still a total rock star!!

pastcaring said...

O.M.F.G. How incredible do you look? NZ's answer to Siouxsie! Great photos, you look as hot as a hot rock star chick can be! Who wouldn't want to perv at you and take your picture?

BellaBean Vintage said...

Craziness!! You look incredible - but then you still do just different. I used to headbang in mosh pits to rock stars like you in the 90's! Maybe I was there! - I was the one in black with studs and chains and the biggest poodle perm you've ever seen - remember me?? We all looked a bit the same then. Must have been another life!

OP SHOP MAMA said...

Wahoo! 1991 doesn't SOUND that long ago - just seems like yesterday - but actually it's 21 years ago! Weird!!

Melanie said...

Helga, you're the real deal! You haven't changed a bit - you're still a total rock queen!! Today that guy would have micro video cameras on the toes of his shoes... Aaaa! I would love to see you on stage - not that the whole world isn't your stage, darling.

Maybe he was slightly dodgy but how brilliant are these photos? I thought the guitarist in one of them was G for a minute too. I love seeing people's old photos and these are great, maybe they can go in your biography one day. xx

Bohemian vanity said...

AMAZING pictures dear - you totally rock ! FANTASTIC !!!

c... said...

I really did enjoy these pic´s ! Such a rock star !! And you still are a star !

Frocktasia said...

I think 'Goth Helga' is sex on a sizzling stick...I'm not surprised you had a slightly odd man taking photos of you, probably had his entire flat wallpapered with your pics, and what the hell not, you looked like a sauce-pot extraordinaire. What can I say, the dude had impeccable taste!
Lot's of love, Jennie...xXx

Perdita said...

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Wow, what an incredibly hot rock chick you are.

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Delicious! I like your naughty stockings, and of course I understand that The Siouxsie and the Banshees was second.

Sheila said...

Wow, you look amazing! I love your wonderful Goth look. Still rockin' after all these years, Helga!

MistressCatgirl said...

You look so awesomely goth! I bet this brings back some great memories.

karensomethingorother said...

Rockstar Helga! Those photos are wonderful. You should have them framed, and put on a prominent wall in your house. Narcissism be damned! Hard to imagine a Helga without long, flame-coloured siren hair :)

Krista said...

I love seeing you like this! I would have followed you everywhere too! You are just as beautiful now as you were then, just a little brighter now. You are a FRIGGIN ROCK GODDESS! The last picture is gorgeous!

Dashfield Vintage said...

Look at you!!! My 15 year old self would have thought you were the coolest thing EVER (well actually so does my 30 year old self). What kind of music did you guys play? I did spot the drummer wearing a Joy Division t shirt, is that a clue?
