    Anyone have a favorite? Allow me to introduce you to Malice Mizer. (these are all men, mind you) [​IMG] The Moz looks good of late, as well. [​IMG]

    Hmmm.. not sure I dig the goth look. Ever. Morrisey is looking quite dapper, however. It seems the best musicians are always wearing torn up t-shirts and ill-fitting jeans with nike sneakers. Those who pay close attention to style (the Killers, every other pseudo-indie band) tend to suck. There are exceptions of course (Phoenix, who are personally outfitted by Hedi Slimane - he also designed their album cover). Interpol and Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips) are also exceptions.

    I love the fact that they don't even remotely resemble human beings. Their music ruled, too. They didn't always look that dark. They switched it up quite a bit, actually. [​IMG]

    Their exaggerations are kind of neat. I'll definitely give you that.

    Not particularly well-dressed, but so damn iconic looking. [​IMG]

    Cedric, huh? He was a much better dresser during the ATDI days, I would say he was a major participant in the indie 70s-revival. Now he's just a dork.

    Keith is my hero. Have you ever been to a Stones concert? He doesn't even know he's alive but damn can he play [​IMG] He puts on really weird clothes etc. But somehow it just belongs to him.

    I don't know about that -- I've got a ton of their live videos, various appearances, etc. and he was almost constantly wearing this one T-shirt... Something about a "bull" on it, if I recall correctly. It had to have been filthy. The fact that he yanked at it like crazy all the time couldn't have helped, either.

    Crazy, orbitingio, I posted the same pic back in September. I saw Moz in concert last fall, he rocked a really cool shawl collar velvet jacket... Brian SD, it's hard to beat Phoenix for style, those guys are suave. Shame their single reminds me of that awful Maroon 5 song. It's true the Killers suck - I gave them some credit at some point, but that was a mistake. They are Slimane-clad on the latest cover of Spin, maybe? Weird War have a certain je nes cest qoi (sp?), and Ian Sevonius is a pedigreed indie rock name, so they've got that going for them, which is nice... Not that it's a real break from the indie-rock norm... Also, Split Enz were creative back in the day... [​IMG]

    He looks like he's eating the mic. Who is that? Dan
