Longhairs With Bangs

Do these coiffs automatically qualify as mullets due to the bangs (fringe, I guess, in the UK) trimmed up to keep the hair out of their eyes? This was a very standard metal 'do in the Eighties, popularized most famously by Bruce Dickinson. Not a traditional mullet, which is short on the sides, as well, this is something of a hybrid.

These guys definitely look of an era and I'd imagine that their country of origin should at least be pretty easy. Since this is the only promo photo I've ever seen of the band, my guess is that someone else who's a regular here will recognize them at first glance.

Though I'm not entirely sure, I don't think that the dude in the lower right is wearing his own band shirt, so don't bother looking there for clues. Gotta love the flannel, though.
