For Those About To Awk


Ah, ’80s rock: the glam, the hair, the chlamydia.

Manowar (pics 3 & 4) we know, but can you name those other poodles?

From top: Tunnel Of Love; Vepri Suicida (Wild Boar’s Suicide) (thanks spudnik); Manowar (x2); Satan only knows (x2); Rhapsody Of Fire; Shotgun Messiah; Night Jamming Band and Stryper (thanks Cuilleog).

    You’ve GOT to tell us who some of these jokers are. Manowar I recognised, and the last ojnes might have been Stryper? What about the others?

      Ditto, millie. They always make me laugh, to the point whereby I question myself and the basic level of amusement I subject myself to – notwithstanding their brilliance, of course!

      More to the point, where are they now and what do they look like?

    is that “No Sweat” there
    5 down

    the good ol’ days

    when hair was proper

    none’ah this man bun or geometric carvings nonsense

      I had to do a double take on that one because they all look like they could have been me in my grad picture.

        It looks more like an evening out for No Sweat’s Ma’s. Especially 2nd from left. Is that a dress?

      Errr proper? There’s a hole in the ozone layer from the hairspray alone. And then the bloody poodle perms, and the backcombing, and more slap than Panti Bliss.

      He doesn’t actually……Charles was bassist for the band Assassin : factually correct story.

    I think the lads with the swords might be Helloween? There’s no way any of these pictures are “No Sweat” (they were very denim-friendly, not chaps or spandex)

    The odd ones out must surely be Stryper being a christian rock band. Their niche market in the day sealed them a fortune.
