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…..????

Vintage


i havent put much on this blog under the category “vintage” since that would be pretty much the whole blog.

i kind of wonder if i should´nt have though, to attract the “right” crowd (or rather their attention).

more or less everything on the blog ranges from the 1700´s to 1980´s and includes highland wear, punk, flappers, swing, victorian and edwardian clothes.

Adam & The Ants – Stand And Deliver


I’m the dandy highwayman who you’re too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention
the devil take your stereo and your record collection!
the way you look you’ll qualify for next year’s old age pension!

Stand and deliver your money or your life!
try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!

I’m the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion
the clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so dashing
so what’s the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking?
it’s kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake he’s making

Stand and deliver your money or your life!
try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!

and even though you fool your souls
your conscience will be mine
all mine

We’re the dandy highwaymen so tired of excuses
of deep meaning philosophies where only showbiz loses
we’re the dandy highwaymen and here’s our invitation
“throw your safety overboard and join our insect nation”

Stand and deliver your money or your life!
try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife!

and even though you fool your souls
your conscience will be mine, all mine

da diddley qa qa da diddley qa qa

Stand and deliver your money or your life!
Stand and deliver your money or your life!…
