Clearly if I had the needs and funding I would surely invest here and become the change Detroit needs.

They look like the Detroit Beastie Boys.

I was going to say they look like they were doing a photo shoot for an album of some sorts. And yes, people dressed like that. I myself was starting my cam-o phase in '82.

But only when you were hunting, right?

Right?

No. Hat and shirt and vest. Never had the pants. The Clash were very influential.

(I never had the hat with the face covering, though. Wish I did. That would have gotten me kicked out of school)

Basically, I believe you have to do what you love, learning as a loan wolf, before you can join a pack.

I hate to admit that during those years I walked around Milwaukee, and Chicago, with a bandana around my neck.
Now we need a shot of someone with their walkman listening to The Jam, Clash, Buzzcocks, Gang Of Four (by the way they have a new album coming out), or whatever.

At least it wasn't hanging out of your back or front pocket...

And when I say "at least" it is a value neutral term used as a distinguiher and not as a judger.

The coverall-wearing guy looks like a reject from Dexy's Midnight Runners.
