'80s music vids icon bases

These are from here: a treasure trove of '80s music vids both wonderful, scary and somewhere in between, of varying quality. (Thanks to killerweasel for the link!) I got all caught up (OMG! Shirtless Peter Murphy!!) and did a bunch of caps.

Also, is there a decent '80s music comm on LJ? All the ones I could find were exceedingly lame or pretty darn dead. So I think I might start my own. themoononastick and queenbtch, you in? ;-)
ETA: I did it. Shiny new comm: the_eighties. Please join!!

There's an 80's icon comm called 80s_icons (such an original name, right?). It's all about the 80s, people post movies, TV shows, commercials, music, and other random icons there. It's a pretty cool place.

After snagging the first Cocteau Twins icon, I decided to join your community as well :)

I would totally join.

I think I just had a squee!attack over the Chameleons caps. So underappreciated and overlooked, my boys.

Yaay! So true! I'd never actually seen a Chameleons vid, although I did see them live once! ;-)

Did you catch them on the reunion tour? Or did you see them in their heyday, in which case I will have to strangle you and cry? :P I saw them in DC on the reunion tour and it goes down as one of the most amazing live performances I have ever seen. And the crowd was insane. I flush just thinking about that night. Bloody fantastic.

I've got a couple of live DVDs/videos - none of them all that great, quality-wise. Maybe when I get them back from the person I lent them to, I'll see if I can't make you a copy.

"Don't Fall" will always hold a special place in my heart, though - opening track on Script of the Bridge, one of the greatest albums of the post-punk era, if not ever. I actually did a Friday DL on the Chams some months back, and people on my f'list still talk about it. They deserve a nee generation of fans.

*runs away to avoid strangling* Had to have been 1987 when I saw them. Wait, yes, I still have the ticket stub: March 14, 1987! No idea who the opening band was though. And look, it cost $12.50!

(Also found ticket stubs for Pogues, REM, William S. Burroughs, Jazz Butcher, Skinny Puppy & Severed Heads, & Mighty Lemondrops.)

It was an amazing show. So intense! And I had a friend who left early because he didn't really get the whole concert thing!! Damn rich boy! Script of the Bridge is one of those seminal albums like Head on the Door or Hatful of Hollow or Unknown Pleasures. And ooh, I'd love a copy of some DVDs & vids!!! *bounces*

Sorry I missed that post! All I have from them (digitally) is their greatest hits.

March 14, 1987!

*strangling motions* OMG. I could kill you right now - like, in the best way possible. Burrrrrrning with jealousy over here. Sometimes I honestly believe I was born 10 years too late. My soul belongs to that era of music. All the more reason for you to start a new comm!

Yeah, here's the post. (I wish I could find idolatrie's monstrous commentary on the songs - she absolutely fell in love and everything she wrote was dead-on.) I have a ton of Chams - the husband and I are hardcore. If you want anything, let me know and I'll get it up for you, okay?

*loves and adores*

And for the record, I also love "Soul in Isolation." I suppose you could say it runs the risk of being too dead on emo-goth-kid-alone-in-their-room but screw that!

"A Person Isn't Safe Anywhere These Days" has to be among my top favorites as well. That song is just SEX. Tormented, angsty sex, of course.

So, yeah, if you want to hook me up with more Chams, I'd be thrilled! ;) I should start that comm right now!!

Thanks! The quality wasn't that great on most of them, but by the time you get them down to icon size, they're not half bad!
