The ozone layer?These girls are responsible.Just look at their hair!!!
They had a love affair with polyester and fabulously exaggerated makeup,too.I reckon Divine would have enjoyed raiding their wardrobes.Ooo,they should have done a song with her!Imagine!
I used to have their album(I think they only did one??)and also a 12" of something that had the most incredible version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" on the b-side.It was bent,thoroughly bent.I loved it,I thrashed it for years,and would play it until G started grinding his teeth,and I eventually gave it to a lovely young friend,cos if I hadn't,G was gonna break it,and it was far too good to wind up in the rubbish!
Speaking of cover versions,I usually despise them,unless they show a certain amount of ingenuity.A fine example of a loser cover was the Bores(sorry,Corrs)version of "Dreams"Honestly.But a fine example of how brillantly one can be done,and even surpass the original,is Devo's version of "Satisfaction".Has anyone heard it??I freakin' love it;think it is far superior than the original,and would love to know if the Stones ever heard it and what they thought of it.
Anyhow,I think I have been on a bit of an 80's bender lately.I usually feel a bit embarrassed about being a teenager then,and frequently have the urge to apologise for tube skirts,fluro,Haircut 100,plastic earrings,buckle boots........but,the youth of today seem to think it's all rather cool,so who am I to argue??
