B-52s: Where Are They Now?

The+B52s++1980This week at Slacker we’re celebrating all things 80′s & New Wave while our Slacker countdown, the 101 Greatest New Wave Songs cranks in the background. What can we say, we’re New Wave fans! Some folks here (like myself) would even argue it was the greatest period ever in the storied history of Rock music. The hair, the synthesizers, the androgynous edge, the elevation of punk ethos and pop excess straight into outer space- what’s not to love?!

So in the spirit of celebration, we’re taking a rewind/fast forward look at some stand out New Wave artists to get a sense of what exactly they’ve been up to since their New Wave peak and where they are now. Today: the B-52s!

First up, let’s get one thing clear: the apostrophe in “B-52’s” went away in 2008; it’s just one of the many mysteries surrounding this band. The Athens, Georgia combo were both ridiculously innovative and innovatively ridiculous for their time. It’s hard to imagine now how truly odd they seemed back in the late ‘70s, with beehive hairdos, a thrift store aesthetic, and gay members who aren’t afraid to be a bit camp on stage. This was Georgia, people!

The release of “Rock Lobster” in 1978 catapulted the band to international fame. It reached the Top 10 in Ireland and Canada and eventually inspired John Lennon to return to making music. While founding member Ricky Wilson’s tragic and untimely death from AIDS in 1985 sidelined the band for a few years, they were to go on to even greater success, with “Love Shack” and “Roam” both peaking at #3 in the US.

b522The band laid low for an even longer period after 1992’s Good Stuff, and didn’t release a new album until 2008’s Funplex, which received strong reviews. While the band continued to be a successful concert act, playing around 50 shows a year, in 2012 founding drummer and multi-instrumentalist Keith Strickland announced he would no longer tour with the band. Currently, Kate Pierson is reportedly working on a solo album. While there are no tour dates or releases planned for the band at the moment, you never know what to expect with the B-52s, one of the strangest and most groundbreaking acts to ever grace the charts.

Bow Wow Wow: Where Are They Now?

Bow+Wow+Wow+Bow_Wow_WowThis week at Slacker we’re celebrating all things 80’s & New Wave while our Slacker countdown, the 101 Greatest New Wave Songs cranks in the background. What can we say, we’re New Wave fans! Some folks here would even argue it was the greatest period ever in the storied history of Rock music. The hair, the synthesizers, the androgynous edge, the elevation of punk ethos and pop excess straight into outer space- what’s not to love?!

So in the spirit of celebration, we’re taking a rewind/fast forward look at some stand out New Wave artists to get a sense of what exactly they’ve been up to since their New Wave peak and where they are now. Today– Bow Wow Wow!

I imagine this to be what happens at every marketing meeting on earth- a brand or product is conceived, market research is studied, the “Four P’s” are discussed… and then you hire a 13 year old Anglo-Burmese girl you found working at a laundry mat and build a band around her to really sell it. Right?

Worked for Bow Wow Wow, the British New Wave band created in 1980 by Malcolm McLaren to promote his and Vivienne Westwood’s New Romantic fashion line. In fact, McLaren’s pitch was so persuasive, he managed to poach guitarist Matthew Ashman, bassist Leigh Gorman and drummer David Barbarossa away from Adam And The Ants, (leaving poor Adam in a lurch to find new bugs). Once McLaren landed a lead singer in the form of 13-year-old Annabella Lwin, the master plan was complete!

However the band quickly found themselves at the center of controversies related to their album artwork and the content of some of their singles. The band was only allowed to tour outside of the UK once McLaren had assured British authorities he wouldn’t promote Lwin as a “Sex Kitten” as a result of the album cover for See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah. City All Over! Go Ape Crazy, and EMI famously refused to promote their single “C-30 C-60 C-90 Go” because it allegedly promoted home taping as the Side B of the release was blank. Totally reasonable.

In fact, the band’s biggest hit, “I Want Candy” was the only single released from their EP The Last Of The Mohicans and barely scrapped the Top 50 at the time, but has since become an enduring New Wave classic.

Fast forward to 2014 and you’ll find Bow Wow Wow has since gathered a roster of interesting admirers including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, Sofia Coppola, (who says she drew inspiration from Annabella Lwin as she crafted the style of her film Marie Antoinette), and the band Pretty Girls Make Graves, who covered “C-30 C-60 C-90 Go”. There are also two iterations of Bow Wow Wow playing today- one fronted by Annabella Lwin and the other under the guidance of bassist Leigh Gorman.

So what’s the lesson here? If you’ve got a got a New Romantic fashion line you’d like to launch- go build a band to sell it. You’ll make waves and be remembered. And puffy shirts the world over will rejoice.

Dead Or Alive: Where Are They Now?

DeadOrAliveThis week at Slacker we’re celebrating all things 80’s & New Wave while our Slacker countdown, the 101 Greatest New Wave Songs cranks in the background. What can we say, we’re New Wave fans! Some folks here would even argue it was the greatest period ever in the storied history of Rock music. The hair, the synthesizers, the androgynous edge, the elevation of punk ethos and pop excess straight into outer space- what’s not to love?!

So in the spirit of celebration, we’re taking a rewind/fast forward look at some stand out New Wave artists to get a sense of what exactly they’ve been up to since their New Wave peak and where they are now. Today– Dead Or Alive!

Holy moly let’s just get this part out of the way- Pete Burns, founder and lead singer of British New Wave band Dead Or Alive, looks pretty wild. Pretty much always has.

blog210910_pete2

 

Burns is often considered the poster child of New Wave androgyny and has pushed the boundaries of style, sex and art throughout his career. In fact, Dead or Alive was the product of two previous bands founded by Burns; The Mystery Girls and Nightmares In Wax, which both positioned Burns’ appearance as the primary “Wow Factor” it seems. Rumor has it the catalyst for Burns deciding to morph Nightmares In Wax into Dead Or Alive was pressure from local British music promoters to really “commit” to his outrageous appearance. Thanks British music promoters.

The result was a band that found loads of success on the British charts in the 1980’s- seven Top 40 UK singles and three Top 30 UK albums. Their biggest hit, “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)” went to #1 on the UK singles chart, #1 in Canada and crossed the pond to peak at #11 in the US, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. What followed was a string of additional singles and albums that flirted with success on the charts, but drove the band further into controversy- videos banned from MTV, retailers complaining about album covers and gothic/horror movie overtones seeping into the mix.

So fast forward- Dead Or Alive never really broke up, but was pared down to Pete Burns and drummer Steve Coy throughout most of the 2000’s and the band continued to release albums comprised of new material, remixes and covers. Pete Burns also managed to solidify himself as a fixture of British reality television, appearing in Celebrity Big Brother, Celebrity Wife Swap & Pete’s PA as well as several TV specials where he recounted his experiences with plastic surgery and of course… he had his arm twisted into performing “You Spin Me Round” on just about all of them.

We’re glad Pete Burns is still with us and we’re glad Dead Or Alive happened; besides the fact that we love the music, he sure makes the folks chasing youth and vanity in Hollywood look like a bunch of cowards!

A Flock Of Seagulls: Where Are They Now?

A-Flock-of-Seagulls-2069522This week at Slacker we’re celebrating all things 80’s & New Wave while our Slacker countdown, the 101 Greatest New Wave Songs cranks in the background. What can we say, we’re New Wave fans! Some folks here would even argue it was the greatest period ever in the storied history of Rock music. The hair, the synthesizers, the androgynous edge, the elevation of punk ethos and pop excess straight into outer space- what’s not to love?!

So in the spirit of celebration, we’re taking a rewind/fast forward look at some stand out New Wave artists to get a sense of what exactly they’ve been up to since their New Wave peak and where they are now. Today – A Flock Of Seagulls!

It’s hard not to immediately give a nod to THE standout New Wave haircut from the era – Mike Score’s gravity defying “Flock Of Seagulls Hairdo“, (some speculate the hairdo to be the true author of their single biggest hit “I Ran So Far Away“). The hairdo was intended to resemble an actual seagull and must’ve had only enough juice to fuel their self-titled hit first record, A Flock Of Seagulls – a concept album about the alien invasion of earth, with tracks about an alien abduction following a sequential story line. Sadly, subsequent albums like Listen and The Story Of A Young Heart failed to stir listeners or the charts and the band broke up soon after.

So fast forward- in 2002 their hit single “I Ran So Far Away” was featured in the hit video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice Citythe band played their final show with the original lineup in 2003 for  VH1’s “Bands Reunited” and as of 2013, Mike Score was continuing to play shows under the “A Flock Of Seagulls” banner, but as the only original member in the group. Whether a fan or a critic, it’s hard to classify the legacy of “A Flock Of Seagulls”-  are they relegated to being remembered as a joke band? Were they New Wave pioneers? Do modern listeners only grant them ironic appreciation?

Who cares?! We’re just glad A Flock Of Seagulls is a part of the New Wave story, because the story wouldn’t be the same without them. Oh yeah… and Mike Score is now bald. So there’s that.
