Doesn't this just scream "80's trash"???

So today my mom and I biked into what is known as "The Art District" in our town. We stopped at this records store, Val's Halla, practically a landmark. I was browsing through the records and came across The Jets. I've never heard their music before, but their outfits were so, well, rad (you heard me.).
I ended up getting a Bob Dylan CD, a Blondie record (Debbie Harry adaptation outfit coming soon. I got a captain sailor hat at the theater thrift sale, just perfect) and a The Who record. But look at this album cover, and you just try to tell me you don't love what they're wearing:

All the bright colors! It reminds me of Saved By The Bell. Check out the guy in the red in the middle, he looks like Screech.
I think it's what drove me towards later buying a bright orange windbreaker at a thrift store. It's just so RAD.

How horrifying. It took an entire decade fo people to figure out their clothes were so unflattering? I do like the colours, though.

Meg said...

i was just going to say it reminded me exactly of saved by the bell.

I LOVE "screech's" outfit...I want that red cropped jacket/blue checked trouser combo NOW. What a brilliant find. Sadly here in London all the best vintage stores have now caught on to the fact that vintage is cool - so no cheapos for us! Loveing the blog...keep up the good work ;)

ruby said...

you should buy this album, the jets were really fun 80's pop, and most or all of them were siblings. Their big hit was a great song called "I've got a crush on you."

Angry Alice said...

I have this album! but no player. I can only appreciate the fashion and not the tunes unfortunately.

Carrie said...

omgosh, i remember these guys - when i was younger my piano teacher had their posters all over their house...i later learned these were her nieces and nephews.

I pretty much grew up singing and listening to their songs!
