Video Flashback

It’s impossible to think of the influence of fashion in 80’s music without thinking of English pop group ABC. Led by Martin Frye, the group combined the sugar-coated look of the burgeoning music video revolution with the soul of Motown and the dramatic flair of Broadway-influenced pop to come up with something entirely new.

Though the band was short-lived in its original incarnation, their album The Lexicon of Love, featuring this single “Poison Arrow,” is always at the top of the list of best albums of the 80’s. Check out Martin’s costumes — we’d sell our grandmother into a Bangkok brothel to get our hands on that gold lamé suit.
