I have always enjoyed watching bands that dress up. There are some people that will say that Punk is an attitude and it doesnt matter what you look like. I think thats just laziness. We are in the entertainment business!
What's your style, Mod suits or t-shirts and jeans, Cavemen or Spacemen.
Bands who look great get my vote everytime. Who are the best dressed and the worst dressed bands? Do you even give a shit?
These last two pictures (No Tomorrow Boys and Suicide Notes (first off, how ironic is that?)) make me feel like there's a great episode of Happy Days (from the early days) that never did get to air.
Our look used to be white shirts, bootlace ties kind of gentlemanly cowboy look..because we didn't sound anything like that!ps. feel free to download the album: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rum4y6q3fzd4682
The Outsiders , Hell , yeah. They had a Garage band in the TV show (Fox , early 90's , me and 3 or 4 people in Utah and Rhode Island watched it.) based on the movie and book. They kicked the Soc's ass , again . This time , by playing "Devil With a Blue Dress On". Stay Gold. We're doin' this one for Johny.

The Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame won't take Paul Revere and The Raiders seriously , just because of their stage wear. GOD , WHO CARES ?! If WE are to take the Hall seriously , then The Raiders should have been in it before the 90's reared their ugly head.
I was at that taping with Hunx and His Punx. I might have been sitting in the audience when they went on. It's very tiring getting to the studio on the CTA , sometimes....
If Drinking,Women and Fighting are a theme then Hoodsnake has one....
My guitarist goes sweater vest no undershirt sometimes
We think outfits add to the excitement of live rock-n-roll. We recently saw a band we like and were very disappointed that they put absolutely no effort into their stage presence. They looked like they just got off the sofa after sitting in front of the TV all night. Musically, they were great but we'll think twice before shelling out cash to see them again.
yeah we dress up......if you're gonna be a band, then look like a band
