Style/Music icons- Strawberry Switchblade

Remember Strawberry Switchblade?


Unfortunately, I don't.

They were originally punks from Glasgow who went on to have one pop hit in 1985, and then disappeared into obscurity.
But I think its about time we start giving some kudos for the incredible style they developed for themselves, yeah?
I mean, this shit is so rad I'm pretty sure I'm making one of these headpieces tomorrow. Tell me, AS IF you don't want these girls in your crew; to get drunk with at your local dive bar and play pool and dance to obscure pop music with. UGH. LOVE. I bet they know everything about squatting in abandoned bedsits, post new wave romanticism, stealing beer and and making their own clothes.
