Spot the '80s Metal Wardrobe Essentials
Let's start off by ticking off the checklist of essential "metal" accoutrements we can spot in this picture:
• Torn T-shirt (shredded to look like fringe). Check.
• Fingerless gloves. Check.
• Scarf tied around head. Check.
• Bandana around neck. Check.
I'm sure there are more that we just can't see.
A couple of other things bother me about this picture, though. First, why does the guy on the right look so scared of his bandmate's armpit hair? And second, why is blondie grabbing his bandmate's hair from behind and smiling so broadly?
My guess is that these guys are European and probably had an album or two out on some long-gone French label. Anyone?
Update: I "accidentally" discovered what band this is, and I will be stunned if anyone else gets it. Suffice to say, my guess (above) was right on the money. Good luck!
