It is so easy to say the 80s were cool. Our peers will say the 80s were awesome because not only were we born in them, but it meant Degrassi High and gymp and fluorescent clothing and Polka Dot Door and New Kids on the Block.

But to us, the 80s say aerodynamic hair and androgyny and mirrored walls and geometric designs, emphasis on the tunes. We take this side of the 1980s very seriously, the side that made a lasting impression on the alternative culture we know today. Join if you know what this is all about, and only then.
