Air Hair Lair

May 16, 2007

Cafe Del Nightmare very kindly gave me a book called Hair Metal the other day – it’s most amusing and I shall be posting up the utter worst of what lurks within it’s pages over the next few weeks – but for now – here are Manowar in all their glory. Nice boots. Baby oil anyone?

    Long live the poodle perm.<br/><br/>But not on me, I hasten to add.

    Ister – I inflicted a poodle perm on myself once in 1984. Horrendous. I ran to the nearest phone box and cried down the phone to my best friend to come and get me as I couldn’t face going home on the bus alone with everyone laughing at me. All my friends called me ‘poodlehead’ for at least a month. It was humiliating in the extreme. But bloody funny in hindsight.<br/><br/>Firsty – you WILL keep mentioning tits won’t you? Didn’t you learn your lesson after the ‘incident’ and mentions of soapytitwanks on your blog last week? Hmmm? Huh? Hey? XX

    we called them <i>hollywood curls</i> don’t ask…*shuddering*

  5. Jimmy Page's Trousers permalink

    You gotta love (definitely not gay) Manowar. So taken was I with this inspirational album cover, that I popped over to Their biog, in particular, makes for excellent reading. It begins with the following quote from Joey DeMaio himself: <br/><br/>"I believe in the fans. I believe in metal more than anybody you’ve ever met. And another thing, I’m prepared to die for metal. Are you?"<br/><br/>Strong words, I’m sure you’ll agree.

  6. Slippery looking bunch. Don’t fancy yours much.

    We want to see your poodlehead pictures. Don’t say you haven’t got any, ‘cos we won’t believe ya.

    Manowar are so homoerotic they are untrue!

  9. Arabella permalink

    Is he holding a glove puppet?

    Savmarshmama – ugh – ugh and more ugh<br/>and lots of hairspray no doubt!<br/><br/>Jimmy Pages Troosers – their website is also hilarious – especially the fan tattoo and drawings section. I want to make a film about Manowar fans one day.<br/><br/><br/>Dickley – yep – bit sticky. Wouldn’t touch yours with a barge-pole!<br/><br/>Ister – I’m sure they have all been destroyed but I will have a trawl. Terms and Conditions: I’ll swap for a Space 1999 suit picture.<br/><br/>Llewtrah – have they always been like that or do you think they are little more relaxed about it now?<br/><br/>Arabella – yes – I believe it’s Sweep – their official mascot. Matthew must be turning in his grave!

  11. Istvanski permalink

    I didn’t know Matthew was dead! When did he die? That’s terrible. I’ve lost track of all time because of blogging.<br/><br/>Photoswap – done, give me some time to find ’em. Those other terms and conditions include posting them up on the blog for everyone to see. OK?

  12. rockmother permalink

    Ister – bellisimo, capiche. You go first as I need to trawl my mum’s archives to find afore-mentioned incriminating and shameful photo – although I do remember destroying as many as I could find some time ago.

  13. Junk Thief permalink

    They sure look like the dancers at my cousin Ginger’s bachelorette party at the Playgirl Club in Fargo back in 1986.

  14. rockmother permalink

    Junk Thief – hello and welcome to Romoworld. Wow – that sounds good – I’d liked to have seen that. Perhaps they WERE the dancers!

    Just checked out the book on Amazon. It says it’s American Hair Metal which reduces its appeal for me. I’m waiting for the new book on Black Metal culture, it’s due out soon!

  16. rockmother permalink

    Llewtrah – oh it’s worth a look – but I can lend it to you – it’s HILARIOUS. I’m sure the black metal book will be much more interesting. What exactly IS Black Metal – is that earbleed music?

  17. llewtrah permalink

    I think Manowar are just as camp looking as they always were!<br/><br/>I’ve just ordered the Extreme Metal Culture book πŸ™‚
