Everybody Loves the Eighties:
It was a simpler time. No internet, no cell phones, no pagers. The top of the line computer couldn’t even balance a checkbook, and “Donkey Kong” was the latest and greatest in video game technology. “Dynasty” and “Magnum PI” ruled television and Calvin Klein and Members-Only jackets ruled the day’s fashion. The Eighties was a time of style-over-substance where looking good was the priority and excess was the rule.
Eighties music was all about “the party” with bands such as INXS, Duran Duran and Tears for Fears showing us the way. Music wasn’t about politics and drama; it was fun. English and American musicians were locked in a fierce international competition for the American hearts and mind, and MTV actually played videos and changed the way we saw the world.
Now the children of the Eighties are all grown-up. Rubik’s Cubes and parachute pants have been replaced by 2.2 kids and a dog. These “children” now have 401-Ks and mortgages. Staying up all night has given way to board meetings, carpools and “soccer moms”. “Pretty in Pink” and “St Elmo’s Fire” now defer to “Desperate Housewives” and “American Idol.”
But the spirit of the Eighties is alive and well and Suicide Blonde is now here to help the children of the greatest decade in history celebrate its passion.
Based out of Raleigh, NC, Suicide Blonde is comprised of “children of the 80s” who have united to bring back the spirit of this incredible decade. With its lineup of experienced musicians, this exciting band well remembers what it was like to wear a mullet, hop in the Trans-AM and drive to the blaring sounds of AC-DC, David Bowie or the Cure. With a wealth of experience in many genres of music, Suicide Blonde brings the required professionalism, musicianship and unmistakable love of the 80s to transport any club or private function back to this unforgettable time of fun and excess.
