Anyone still wearing gloves?

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by gazman_res, Apr 16, 2005.


  1. Abit 80'ish, still flashy, but i was wondering if anyone still wears 'em when performing/jammin etc.. :hyper:
     
  2. Personally I've never found that wearing gloves while playing bass really works...seems like it inhibits your movement too much.
     
  3. i would never be albe to play with gloves, long sleeves bother me enough heh

    All the hardcore kids are wearing gloves these days. What once was considered 80s fashion crimes is now high fashion, and what once was considered womens clothing is now unisex.
     
  5. i find what charlie murphy said in the chappelles show prince skit to sum it all down "the guys who looked like the biggest bItch scored all the chicks"

    cough metro tight pink shirts cough

    please do not refer to these kids as hardcore kids. only gloves you should see a guy in a hardcore band wear while they are playing is like this.

    those are hardcore kids. the kids you are seeing at shows nowadays are fashioncore kids with the girl pants and tight shirts. they should not be looked at as hc kids.

    i edited this because it was kind of confusing.

    i worded it wrong.

    the picture is a picture of the 80's hardcore band warzone, singer raybeez used to wear work gloves at shows. kinda the 'blue collar hc" thing.

    the fasioncore kids, are defintely not like those dudes.

    also, i guess it is a genre thing, i just hate when these fruit baskets get put in the same category as people like me and my friend.

    honestly, if i had my choice of who i would like to be associated with, its a metro. for one, metro's dress really well, and have style.


    girl pants, tight shirts, and bad hair cuts is defintely worse. especially here.
     
  16. i still stick by the south park episode of the queer eye/metros....

    ive got nothing against them, one of my best mates is full into it....but i just find the clothing really funny, still, IMO dressing like a b*tch isnt really good fasion
