So, I came across this poster today while I was trekking to Walgreen's to refill my crazypill prescription:
INFORMATION SOCIETY -- ORIGINAL LINEUP!!
Remember them? They sang that riotous 1988 pop sensation What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy).
Until this moment I sort of regarded the band as a one-hit wonder -- however, according to Wikipedia, they are huge with the Latinos:
Well, and the Japanese. And let's face it, they're just an easy target when it comes to pop culture.
Regardless, the band stands out in my mind, because my fourteen-year-old self always thought the spiky-haired, skinny mod lead singer looked like a dead ringer for my cousin Jonathan. (Jonathan, can I not find a picture of you on the Internets? Only your very distinguished-sounding bio. Shame on me for having none on my Flickr page. I will remedy that situation this weekend.)
I look now and see no resemblance, honestly.
But now I totally have that song in my head.
