There are some stories that never stop being told. If you'd taken a huff through one of Altern8's gas masks at Fantasia, or spat at someone at the Sex Pistols 100 Club gig, if you managed to get past Steve Strange at the doors to the Blitz Club, or remember seeing Sonic Youth on their first tour, people will ask you about it forever. They'll be buying you drinks, asking how tall Thurston Moore is in person, if the pills were really that strong then. You might even be asked to be a talking head on a documentary, reminiscing about how amazing it all was. You'll stare down the lens and say that when you entered the room, every stranger felt like your friend, and you'd never seen anything like it before.
Much like the New Romantics, it was a scene without a real sound, but with a definite look. It marked its territory with its visual identity, in the way kids were trying to out-do each other by looking more weird and ad-hoc and cartoony. At one point, my look was as follows: purple and yellow Air Force ones, red girls' jeans from H&M, a vest, a plaid shirt, and a lopsided haircut. It was perfect teenage experimentation, a way of finding a cohesive identity through sartorial competitiveness. Throughout the new rave years, a friend of mine was wearing an intact tea-pot around his neck. He's never really lived it down.
16. The girls are rehearsing \"Say You'll Be There\" and Mel is wearing a fucking winter coat for some reason She's the only one wearing a puffy jacket. Is this because black music artists wore a lot of puffy jackets in the '90s thanks to Diddy
53. The girls head back to the London countryside and they run out to use the bathroom in the woods. They can't get the toilets fixed on their bus Aren't they superstars I think Beyoncé could get the toilet on a tour bus fixed.
68. Ginger remembers when they were all aspiring musicians. Nicola is there and she turns on a stereo so the girls can sing and perform. Is the moral of this story that Nicola was just untalented Literally all of these girls are in a group and she's just the random friend.
86. The girls sing \"Spice Up Your Life\" at the concert. YASSSS QUEEEENSSSSSSS! I've forgotten about anything else that happened in the movie because they are slaying this stage and I wish I'd gotten to see a Spice Girls concert at some point in my life. 59ce067264
