Quote of the day: Kate Pierson, The B-52’s on L.A. post-punk thrifting

The Go-Gos

“We were influenced by Diana Vreeland when she was the editor of Vogue in the ’60s. It was very futuristic and stylized. And I went from wearing no makeup at all to that black, punk, really heavy eyeliner. That cat eye. It was just a makeup extravaganza. Cheap, cheap make-up and Day-Glo clothes.”
Kate Pierson, The B-52’s, Harper’s Bazaar

I love this trip down memory lane of The B-52s’ Kate Pierson and The Go-Go’s Belinda Carlisle and Gina Schock reliving the vintage Schiaparelli and Miriam Haskell treasures they acquired on their early 80’s thrifting sprees.

Congratulations to The Go-Go’s, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last night. Drummer Gina Schock’s new book, Made in Hollywood is available here*.
