    Just thinking to myself. Back in the day, when everybody was smoking (often indoors) you would have thought there would have been more big hair band explosions.
    Heh.. I was torn between the sold out of hairspray joke and "nobody light a match!"

    FTR, I never had new wave hair, but did have punk rock hair for years. Black, almost white, yellow, orange, and briefly red. There are a few pics somewhere, but they predate digital.

    I had never heard this track and find it way cooler than what they are best known for, causing me to think that perhaps they have some interesting deep cuts on their early albums...
    Their name came from a Stranglers song, so they couldn't have been all bad.

    We went to the Wailers at the Belly Up Sunday. Only one original member, more or less a cover band.
    Still had a good time!

    I met a girl who was really excited that I knew Merzbow and had seen Boris sorry before meeting her. That was a sign
