smells like 80s

She’s in Parties

Learning lines in the rain

Special effects by Loonatik and Drinks

The graveyard scene The golden years

She’s in parties It’s in the can (twice)

Freeze frame screen kiss

Hot heads under silent wigs

Fall guys tumble on the cutting room floor

Look-a-likes fall on the cutting room door

She’s in parties It’s in the can (twice)

Learning lines in the rain

Special effects by Loonatik and drinks

Freeze frame, screen kiss, hot heads, lights and power

It’s patently obvious

She’s in parties It’s in the can (twice)

Hot lines under a rain of drum

Cigarette props in action Dialogue dub, now heres the rub

She’s acting her reaction

She’s in parties It’s in the can

“In the can” is slang for something being finished – like a scene in a movie that has been deemed successful by a director and therefore is “in the can”….complete. According to an interview w/Peter Murphy, the song is about Marliyn Monroe (who happened to mix pills and alcohol on a regular basis) – I believe this song could refer to her death as being her last performance, and that it is actually her life that is “in the can”.

Surely, you will agree when i say that 80s have dramatically attacked the 21st century. The music and the fashion tendencies(elastic leggings!!! high west jeans!!!) have mixed with the contemporary interpretation of a modern child. 80s were not bad at all, with big political and technical changes, which have effected the 90s. 80s were a strange mix of bright coloured disco and a gloomy and dark deathrock scene.  Ice, Ice, baby . . .

The end is a new beginning.

Let us then create a new guild of craftsmen without the class distinctions that raise an arrogant barrier between craftsman and artist! Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will one day rise toward heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith. Walter Gropiu/ Bauhaus manifesto
