It's Blast-from-the-Past Tuesday here at the Picnic



OK Picnickers, you guys have been so good, I'm gonna play DJ and expand your musical consciousnesses, with an all-80s, all-day festival of your 20s...


Music you thought you'd forgotten all about from the days when your pink jeans were so tight around your ankles you had to have little zippers to get your feet into them; when you wouldn't be caught dead going outside without your pink hair teased and hairsprayed up two feet above your eyebrows...


Bet you still know all the words...


Go ahead, dance. No one's looking...




Did you wear parachute pants?





OK, now we calm down a bit and go out east

Stan.

I never wore parachute pants but my jeans were so tight that I had to lie down and use a coat hanger to pull the zipper up.

Love the music, but you forgot some Joan Jett.

Um, for a boy from the same era an alternative list might include:
AC/DC
Van Halen
Rush

My 18-year old self's opinions about the bands you name, would get me kicked out of this comments box. Came to like Bahaus later on, tho'.

Horses for courses?

Didn't do 80s hair-rock, which was strictly for the hard-of-thinking, jutting-brow types.

New Wave was our millieu, boys and girls.

That it was, Hilary, that it was. I was quite the fan of the Thompson Twins in my time. But a surprising omission is OMD – local heroes in these parts! Who can forget their classic smash, ‘Sealand’ from their third album Architecture and Morality?
