    Interesting that raging gay Limahl with friends looks least ridiculous.

    The Turds rock! I think I saw them open for The Stones once (or was it the other way around?).

    I spotted Sorpions, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Manowar twice (classic awkward outfits) and the guy who sung the song for the “Neverending Story” movie. I think some look cool actually. Also Turd Of Misery is a great name for a band.

    There was so much more gender fluidity in the 70s than now!

    Judas Priest, Scorpions and Manowar rock, they do not belong in this gallery with the other schmucks. This was how you had to look back then.

    I believe that was actually Flock of Seagulls in there. I believe I remember that photo in the fan mags.

    To anyone with a gay comment here…I was in a band that dressed “the part” for the times. and the “manly dressed manly men” could only dream about the women I was…uh… associated with. Mostly because I wasn’t in the background hating, I was in the spotlight, surrounded by women one of whom was usually their girlfriend!

  45. Mossifer May 10, 2020

    Ya never name a band CHILD’S PLAY. never ever.

  46. Heytheregeorgygirl May 11, 2020

    Kajagoogoo and Flock of Seagulls in there, as well as Grandmaster Flash.
