Return to Gender

Shocky Horror Show: white lace, see through pants - for him and for her

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, men and women - is the musical motif for tonight's Podrophonic runout. Unisex, drugs and rock and Roll you could say

I'll be opening with this Jet/Beatles bootleg - but expect The Wolfmen and a mystery northern soul vocalist - along with the usual natter and banter from Piley and the other one. We're live from 9 at Chance Radio

If you missed last week's Leap Year Special, fill your booties below

Just saying... I wouldn't be seen dead in those trousers... And if by some bizarre fate I did fenture out in them I think I'd be dead in less than 20 seconds!

Love the fact that they only go up to 34" waist - people were thin in them days.

Mind you, it'd be a wise policy to repeat if they ever 'relaunch' 'em...imagine some of today's 'fuller figured' ladies and gents gamely squeezing themselves into see-through white lace. Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide indeed.

F-Ron - I don't think even the occasionally transparent trousered Iggy Pop would chance wearing these shockers out and about

ISB - how did they stay so slender then? There was no stodge awareness and the only low-fat foods were Special K and Nimble bread. Similar slim fits applied to Westwood and McLaren's Seditionairies clobber, 34 would have been the heavy end of the scale

West London glam merchants got the UK music press backs up right from the get go. Covering Kiss' Do Ya Love Me should have won them round. No such luck; they were made to feel like gatecrashers at their own party. Shame, cos if they'd emerged from the womb 10 years later the self same hacks would have lauded them.

It's a strange one, Mondo - I'm sure my diet as a kid was crammed with sugar and fat, but I was a beanpole. Maybe everyone was just secretly chowing down on 'Ayds'?? Or maybe it was when fast foods like Mackie D's really got going that everyone ballooned. In my day all we had was the odd Brown Derby for a treat...

Similar story for Hanoi Rocks J, who pre-dated G 'N' R, Motley Crue by several years. Funnily enough Girl singer Phil reminds me of someone from about a million years ago..

It must the lack of locomotion ISB, everyone's just so static now - all slumps to saturated stodge.

PS check your FB page for a Derby update

'Ayds' Hahaha ! Forgotten about those. Half the girls in 6th form had an Ayds toffee, black coffee and a Limmits digestive for lunch: 3 course meal. If you were pigging out you might have a tangerine as well.

THAT'S how you squeezed into your see-through lacy trews or tiny loon pants bought postally through an NME ad.

Not sitting on your posterior looking at Facebbook for hours on end after school may have had something to do with it too...and having to walk to school
