Hooters are good! Starting listening to them a long time ago, got back into them the same time as Big Head Todd and the Monsters first appeared (along with Blues Traveler, DMB, Crash Test Dummies and Smashing Pumpkins), right about when The Division Bell came out...

The Hooters were a fun band. Most of their songs were so catchy and singable.

They performed at my High School in 1986. Lots of energy. Everyone was dancing.

The Hooters toiled away for years before they hit. A guy I work with used to do their lights back when they were playing schools and churches.

Decent band, great live.

Holy shit, I didn't think anyone remembered The Kings! I had the 45 of "This Beat Goes On/Switchin' to Glide".

Stick with me Cail! I have ALL of that stuff!

Wink

That music is FUN...Donny Iris, The Kings, Hooters, etc., but not the sort of thing I'd just put on every day, ya know?

Jesus, Donny Iris......

Man I loved that '80s faux-rock pop stuff.

Most 80's bands were hairspray and nothing else.

The Hooters were actual musicians, as well.

PS Thanks Null, I enjoyed the "As We Danced" clip a great deal.

Au contraire mon frère. There was certainly a lot of hairspray back then, but there was also quite a bit of substance and some damn fine musicians.

I did say most.

There was a lot of pure unadulterated tripe as well, brought to us by any fool with a synthesiser on which they had half-wittedly constituted some amateurish maudlin riff.

Sarge and I used to have fun with the idea on this thread:

http://kevinswatch.ihugny.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=10335

Edit: On looking back through it I see you visited, Cail.

Actually, "All You Zombies" might have worked for the seige of Revelstone. Cool

Roxy Music
Joe Jackson
Donny Iris
Marshall Crenshaw
Elvis Costello
Hooters
The Kings
Utopia
Joe Jackson
The Cars
...and perhaps the best 80'2 band EVER..... BIG COUNTRY!

These were some kick ass bands.

I overstated the hairspray point. Pretty much all '80s music was better than modern R&B.

Bizarre that you mentioned Big Country, Guns, this discussion had only just encouraged me to pull out their "The Crossing" album that I bought second-hand 15-20 years ago and have listened to maybe once (apart from "In a Big Country" which gets a spin every 2-3 years).

Big Country is a good one. There are a number of good songs on their first 2 records. BTW, the Lead killed himself a few years back.

Nice ones. Might I add Crowded House/Neil Finn to that bunch as well as Nick Lowe?

Speaking of the Kings, check out their website. Looks like they're releasing some new stuff: http://www.thekingsarehere.com/



Null: The Hooters, prior to the national release of Nervous Night, were still playing local clubs in the Philly area when I was in high school. To promote the band, a local radio station (WMMR) held a contest for all local high schools. The school that submitted the most post cards (the hand written name of your highschool on the card) would win a free Hooters concert. I think my school had about 2000 students, so we had a pretty good advantage from the start. Other than that, high school sucked!
