The 2-Tone ska band Madness skanked down Yohji Yamamoto’s runway during the Fall ’04 shows. British GQ has pictures of the entire collection, but no acknowledgement of the band at all; he just shoots the clothes. Clearly, a magazine for New Ro poseurs.
On the other hand, the Times has the full band, including frontman Suggs, but Cathy Horyn doesn’t even mention Yohji or Madness in her report. Poseur.
Buy Madness’s One Step Beyond or Ultravox’s The Collection (Poseur). [Obviously, I have them both.]
