all photos (c) 1985 -89 Heather Harris
Proffered: a smidgen of my '80's studio shots. Having written that the 1980's were my most productive photographic period, I'll expand that I quantitatively had more work as there just were more local bands, with more variety than now: punk, metal, hair metal, "pretty in pink" new wave, rap, hardcore et al. These shots sample L.A. locals, above: Hans Naughty, photographed in the proverbial dark alley at night, singer Danny Jazz upper right.
Below, I've forgotten whom but the lead singer looked like Rob Lowe/Matt Dillon; Black Cactus Stampede, a terrific live band see HERE;
Below, Daddy Ray, a comedic band a la Cheap Trick, meaning fine as well as witty musicians, with the photo's caption being "How big is it?"; and The Wild Hairs, a Gogo-ish cross between Johnny Thunders and T-Rex!
More 80's L.A. locals below: Bardeux; I've forgotten whom; I've forgotten whom but she was once a lead singer for the Wild Hairs until last spotted careening off with Billy Idol on the back of his motorcycle after a Hairs gig (true story.)
