Glam Rock, New Wave, Visual Kei, Make Up And Frills


People having opinions about “Visual Kei” must have forgotten about the 70´s-80´s “Glam Rock, New Romance” and “New Wave” when the hairspray formed into a thick fog and mascara had a tendency to “disappear” from moms or girlfriends.

The 80´s “Sleeze Rock” also had its share of it.

Adam Ant (above) was/is my favorite!

David Bowie, Marc Bolan (T-Rex) and Hanoi Rocks, Mötley Crue….

Bands like Malice Mizer and Seremedy (below) are merely following a tradition as old as rock itself.

As a matter of fact, androgyny was even part of the 1920´s jazz scene……..so if it upsets you…..????

Bowie, Yohio, Rock And Androgyny


Having seen some reactions from the more primitive parts of the common peasantry about the fact that guitarist Yohio wears a dress.

THIS is the cover of David Bowies “The Man Who Sold The World”, released 1970. Seen by many as the start of “Glam Rock”.

Conclusion: NOTHING has happened among the troglodytes since the 70´s and Rock´N Roll can still upset the preconditoned mind.

Mission accomplished!
