as for Strawberry Switchblade, their single
"since yesterday" was the biggest hit in Japan.
Those girls are Scottish, had a few hits in the UK, like Patsy, very "Smash Hits". They used to come into the fabric shop my girlfriend worked in as a teenager and buy cloth and ribbons for their silly outfits.
"From the ominous shadows of Goth suddenly appeared two young girls in polka-dot dresses, flaming red lipstick, and hair ribbons. Looking like the brides of Robert Smith, Strawberry Switchblade made a brief splash on the U.K. charts and then abruptly vanished in the mid '80s, leaving their fans with a handful of collectible singles and one LP of deceptively sweet-sounding dance pop."
