Marjane, you fucking go girl.
1981 Fan Club X-mas Party Flyer
The Danse Society, the Sisters, fellow Leeds drum machine band the Three Johns as well as the Expelaires (featuring Craig Adams of the Sisters until Jan 1980 and David Wolfenden of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry) playing in the Merrion Centre with Eldritch’s Claire DJing. Vena Cava sound pretty groovy too. The start of Leeds’ goth scene? I think it might be.
The Three Johns - Teenage Nightingales to Wax (Live on The Tube,1985)
The Leeds drum machine band that time forgot. It’s a real shame this video has under 400 views: the performance is absolutely ace but it’s worth watching for the intro alone:
"We’ll have a lot more smoke. We’re a gothic band and this is called Banana Voodoo Temple Doom."
And then at the end:
"Welcome to Alternative Blue Peter!"
Andrew, you super cool.
THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE MAN. I’ve never seen this one before, THANK YOU!
What a dude. Light of my life, fire of my loins.
I actually got it at a workshop with Indian fusion dancer Colleena Shakti. I recommend looking on etsy for similar ones though - you can get really beautiful handmade ones on there. I really love this one, for example.
darkpupa said: wtf? no! Guess i’ll have to go write MAC to stop testing on animals. Did they get acquired by another company that tests?
Yeah, it’s really shitty. Earlier this year Mac started selling in China, and China requires by law that all cosmetics sold over there are tested. Now MAC’s standing on animal testing goes like this:
MAC is against animal testing.*
*except where required by law
Bastards. Actually a lot of companies that used to be cruelty-free have backtracked this year in order to sell in China, it’s awful. Some of them are being very sneaky about it by selling through third parties so they can act as though nothing’s changed, but if you can find out that their stuff is being sold in China, then it’s being tested.
On the bright side, I actually found a really nice face powder in Illamasqua today (maybe they changed their formula?) so I’m really pleased about that.
