Well, denture teeth that is by Fantich&Young. I dig the bonus gold-toothed smile thing they’ve got going on.

But you have to sort of wonder if these puppies are loud as hell to walk on? They’d really do a number on hardwood floors, too.

Totally 80s: Haysi Fantayzee is Big Leggy

Quirky early 80s New Wave act Haysi Fantayzee consisted of co-lead singers Jeremy Healy and Kate Garner—who looked like Dickensian “Huckleberry Finn” white rasta versions of Raggedy Ann and Andy—and Garner’s boyfriend, producer/manager Paul Caplin, who had previously been in a New Romantic group called Animal Magnet, but detested performing and preferred to be thought of as the group’s behind the scenes “mastermind.”

They were known as a fashion/dance act and could roughly fit into a grouping of UK acts including Culture Club, Bananarama, Duck Rock-era Malcolm McClaren, Fun Boy Three and Bow Wow Wow, post post-punk pop performers at the dawn of the video age when the visual presentation was becoming as important as the music. Although Haysi Fantayzee will forever be thought of as a fluffy, lightweight “totally 80s” act, their music was actually quite innovative, and wholly original for the pop charts of the era, incorporating country, dance beats, cartoony sound effects, dub reggae and cheeky/childish double entendre sing-song lyrics about anal sex and “chizoola” (I don’t know what that is, but it sounds dirty). I loved them then, and I still think their records sound great.

I can vividly recall one day, just after Christmas of 1983, being in the Fiorucci store in London, on King’s Road—I was the only one browsing in what was a small store—and in walked Kate Garner and Marilyn, the “gender bender” “friend of Boy George” (for that is how he’s always described). Two things: One, they were just laughing hysterically and throwing things on the counter—piles of expensive stuff—without even bothering to try them on (obviously someone else was going to be picking up their tab) and 2.) OMFG was she HOT. If you’ve ever been suddenly confronted by an impossibly gorgeous creature at close range, unexpectedly, and your guts just FREEZE, well, this is what happened to my 18-year-old stomach that day when I made improbable, fleeting eye contact with the delicious Kate Garner. “Good times come to me now…”

Haysi Fantayzee only lasted a couple of years before they split up, leaving behind one album, Battle Hymns for Children Singing, four singles, b-sides and 12” mixes. Jeremy Healy went on to be a well-known producer, DJ and club promoter; Garner—who still looks great—became a top celebrity photographer and Paul Caplin is now the owner of Caplin Systems, a successful financial trading software company.

“John Wayne Is Big Leggy,” a paean to America’s wild west, racism and Greek sex:

At first I didn’t see it or even notice, but upon further inspection…yep, it’s a penis blouse all right!

The penis blouse, or as the company selling it likes to call it “ASOS Blouse With Contrast Piping,” is retailing for $52.77.

And if you’re curious: Yes, I would wear the hell out of the penis blouse.

‘Jeans that turn a dude into a stud’: Nick Nolte’s modeling career, 1972

According to my husband, it’s pretty well-known that Nick Nolte used to be a male model in 1960s and early 1970s. I have to admit, I did not know this and had a hearty LOL at h.i.s. jeans, the “jeans that turn a dude into a stud” advertisement from 1972.

The image below is of Nick Nolte and Sigourney Weaver modeling for Clairol’s “Summer Blonde.” Apparently the pair were also featured on the packaging.

Cave has always been fashionably cool, but in the video below he looks like he’s been caught in the middle of committing a crime at London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013.

Don’t worry Nick, your street cred is still intact. Punk is fashion and Pam Hogg is haute shit.
 

 

I kiss the hem of her skirt
We spend our live in a box full of dirt
I murder her dress till it hurts
I murder her dress and she loves it

 

Hogg wild.

I have no idea of the provenance of this image. Is it old? Is it new? Is it ‘shopped? In any case, it’s damned cool and I thought I’d share it.
