Students for Scarves and Charm
This week Students for Scarves and Charm is dedicated to that most maligned of decades: the 80's. It may be better remembered for its cultural detritus and moral bankruptcy rather than significant contributions to popular culture but we hope our mix of New Wave hits from the spikyness of XTC and Talking Heads to the proto-twee of Altered Images and The Cure will convince you that there was a world of joyously inventive pop beyond the synthetic pop sheen of Stock Aitken Waterman and that the 80's were a good time to be a teenager.
The topics of our deliriously sleep deprived (and ,this week, virus ridden) babbling include the evil genius of Malcolm McLaren, cow sound effects, Mairiclare's teenage Pipettes obsession and Bicola enlightens us about the racist undertones in Disney films.
Also, don't forget to check out this week's Unsigned Act, Rose Elinor Dougall at: http://www.myspace.com/roseelinordougallmusic.
All in all, another triumphant week from the show that some critics are calling "quite literally amazing"*.
Now we're off to watch Brat Pack films and sculpt our hair into amazing Flock of Seagullsesque structures.
Mairiclare and Bicola
