    Tones On Tail gets my vote for best Bauhaus-associated band.


    Not particularly obscure, Foo. Their most popular song hit no. 3 on the Billboard charts.

    Also, can someone define ConTrad for me?

    If you have to ask, you are probably ConTrad.

    I will admit to doing the 80's white man dance to Ball of Confusion on multiple occasions as a teenager.

    I'm sad you'd all rather talk about old people music than bespoke rugs made by little old women in mountain villages.

    I tried to talk about ConTrad, but you dissed me (or, so I gather...)

    I thought it was just me. That's reassuring, I guess.


    Huh? The 80s is the 60's of the new millennium. Plus, they play all this music in department stores and elevators and stuff.

    I dunno about this. When I was growing up, Korean families who clawed their way up to middle class status (or higher) often furnished their homes with bizarre fake rococo furniture that was ostensibly made in Italy. That stuff was neither con nor trad.

    Foo wins again. I can't stand kilims. They always seem ostentatiously 8-bit

    Don't worry about it too much. ConTrad is a label for "Contemporary Traditional" that Foo made up trying to ape Manton's CBD threak, except for interior design. He's got a thread about it.

    There is one key difference between Manton's CBD thread and this one.
