FeedTheCollapse: it's Wire.


Ah. Gotcha.

Off topic: Your handle is my favorite Metric song.

Kate from the B-52's is still hittable.

Cindy, not so much.

People get old, and their looks fade. This and more with Ric Romero at 11.

I think FARK is caching images these days.

huh, it shows up for me when I view the source...

it's Wire.

They are still making music?  Good to know.

/the guy on the left?????


They've been active since 2002-ish or so, though Bruce Gilbert left after 1 album. All of the albums they've put out since (re)reuniting have been quite good.

the guy on the left is Matt Simms. He took over live guitar duties after Bruce left and became a full-time member on their most recent album.  IIRC, he has his own project, but I'm not familiar with it.


phenn: Off topic: Your handle is my favorite Metric song.


it's actually based off a Main song.

I've thought that Billy Idol's old hits hold up very well, even if his black studded leather style was outdated.  Looks like he's spent a decade sunning himself in the desert!

Bananarama, looking good.

The Go-Go's, WANT!

Confabulat: swahnhennessy: Kate Bush needs to stop trying to look like Robert Smith.

Robert Smith should stop trying to look like Robert Smith.


Oh, this. That picture just looks sad.

The bananarama duo, oh my. Also to Aimee Mann, even with the odd teeth.

I can say, Peter Murphy looks like he's spent zero years aging.

barneyfifesbullet: it looks like a Photoshop thread from the 80's.

Hey it has been 30 years. Time catches up to everybody. It will to those who were celebs in the internet age too.


Not to be cruel, but ...duh. That's the entire point of this exercise.

My second thought after the obvious "crap, I feel old" thought.

Aging gracefully as a rockstar is perhaps tougher than any other career. Except hooker I suppose.
 
2013-11-27 09:35:02 AM  
Simon LeBon went steam punk!

The Go Go's and Bananarama look awesome!

Sorry about Kate Bush.

Terri Nunn -- Wow!

Holly Johnson looks like a corporate executive. Relax.

Jonny Marr always looks like he's wearing a poorly fitting wig.

Danny Elfman was in Oingo Boingo?!
The B-52s look relatively unchanged.

GentlemanJ: I was shocked at Kate Bush. She's completely let herself go. Debbie Harry, on the other hand, looks very good--although I wonder how much of that is hair dye and makeup. I'd still like to wake up next to her. Glad to see Thomas Dolby still has some pep--and I wonder about the Japanese woman in his video, how has she aged? And above all, what the hell is her name? No one seems to have any idea. No, her real name, wiseguy...


Debbie Harry is a 68 year old woman, and there's no getting around it.  That photo was 'shooped.

Debbie Harry aka Blondie

No, Blondie was the name of the band; it's like saying "Darius Rucker aka Hootie".

Aimee Mann of Til Tuesday [Hush-hush]

"Voices Carry", dammit; is it that hard to look up the name of a 1-hit wonder's only hit?

As for Pete Burns, well, "more machine than man, etc. etc."

2013-11-27 10:31:06 AM  
I just saw Gary Numan last month with Nine Inch Nails.  He's not New Wave anymore--there's a reason he's touring with NIN, and his new stuff kicks ass (he did play "Cars" though).

Adam Ant looks like Dr. Demento.

You take it correctly. Plus, I'm sure EVERYONE knows Weiland was in The Wondergirls. And something else, can't put my finger on it.

Holeeeeecrap.  I thought he would have died under a pile of groupies before he would ever look like this.

Gulper Eel: suebhoney: Peter Gabriel may not look so great, but he still kicks ass in concert.

THIS.

Peter's dad lived to be 100, so I'm hoping for a lot more concerts...and looky here, Phil's thinking about coming out of retirement. We can haz old-school Genesis reunion after all?


I would LOVE that! Seeing Genesis in concert is on my bucket list. Although, it sucks that Phil's health prevents him from playing drums :(

And like someone said earlier, PHIL looks more like Bob Hoskins rather than Peter

They were always hot...

Didn't all of Bananarama get swapped out at least once?


In my fantasies, yes.  Many times.
 
2013-11-27 12:17:57 PM  
Ha, I remember when I first heard Danny Elfman was writing the soundtrack for Pee Wee's Big Adventure and thinking that was kinda weird and fun, Oingo Boingo fits well with Pee Wee.

Never thought one day that's all he'd be known for. Bring back Oingo Boingo, Danny!

True, and he's not too bad of a singer too (and kinda cute):

Everyone's does.  Women just get collagen implants to hide it.

3 Things

1) I saw Richard Butler (And his brother ) Live last month.  And while his singing is still really good.  He is the CREEPIEST looking guy IRL.  If I met him in a dark alley, I would RUN!

2)  Blondie looked better IRL than that picture.

3) Why is KRAFTWERK on this list?
