Flashback Foto: Name That Band! Win A Prize!


It’s Thursday and we’re overworked, so instead of buckling down and getting the calendar done, we’re posting a random photo from the vast and hallowed Nippertown archives.

But to make it even more fun, we’re offering a free pair of passes to the Spectrum 8 Theatres to the 20th commenter who correctly identifies this band. To make it fair, comments on this post won’t show up until we announce the winner tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. One comment per person, please, and be sure to leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck!.

Kinda interesting how many people got it wrong, as well as how many people got it right. Congratulations to our ticket winner, Tim!

    Well, that, there, that, yes indeed, that, that right there is that Lethal Lipstick band, yep, yep, yesiree, albeit in a later configuration sans them Messrs. Gori, Hammer and Haskins, right-o.

    Seems to me, if’n I ‘member correctly, that that there Mr, Nippertown fellow, the gent with the tousled gray hair, introduced the rockin’ lil’ combo at their first gig-a-reno at the Queen Elizabeth 2 place, albeit when his mane was a mite darker.

    Telephone is ringing, indeed!
