Hairdressers of Musicians?

Aaahh!  Yes, music in the 1980s did sound how it looked.  This is a Flock of Seagulls.  They’re a band, not a gathering of hairdressers at a ‘crimp and tease’ seminar.  Musicians in the 1980s were distant and aloof.  They lounged around in up-turned collars and baggy high-pants, carelessly flicking tinted hair from their brows…..I can almost hear the conceited, phased, whine of the DX synth from here.
