    Nope, I got to 45 seconds by sheer strength of will. That was truly awful. I will never get those 45 seconds back.

    Yes, they could cover the Velvet Underground



    They were a Guild group, but if I keep looking, I bet a Gretsch pops up!

    HAHAHAHA I knew some girls who loved them. I totally got it and the fashion! Wow, but the point is as much as I complain about modern music there were some real winners, sarcasm for the uninitiated into to midwestern slang, in the past as well. I did listen to them when they popped on and didn't switch channels but I never bought any of it.

    I made it to 1:27. Do I get a prize, or at least therapy?

    I didn't love it but didn't hate it, either. Better than Death Metal at least.

    Am I missing something?
    This is actually a bit of all right.
    I’ll take this over a lot of the stuff posted here.

    It isn't bad but not purchase-worthy for me. I was more hit by the fashion and such that was so '80s. Just a crazy flashback.

    Um... go back a bit further-- like 1967... With Ed King (later of Lynyrd Skynyrd).

    And I never had a problem with Strawberry Switchblade... I've heard much worse "music" made since then.

    I was more of Lene Lovich guy back then.



    Everybody thought she was from Czechoslovakia or something. No internet back then. Turns out she was from Michigan. Ha! She had a string of "almost" hits up thru about '87 or so. Sorry the video cuts off the end - wtf!

    I know Rosee MacDowell from collaborations with Current 93 and Death in June. Quite different to the synth pop of Strawberry Switchblade. :D
