Badge Friday: The Bangles

The Bangles - 1987
Here's another favourite band of mine from the 80s - The American all-girl group The Bangles consisting of Susannah Hoffs, Michael Steele and Debbie and Vicki Peterson.

I probably became aware of the group with their Prince penned hit Manic Monday and picked up their albums Different Light and All Over The Place shortly afterwards.

The cool thing about The Bangles (apart from Susannah Hoffs) was their Beatles / Byrds influenced style and their capability to play their own instruments. The band split in the late 80s following their UK Number One Eternal Flame but have reformed and recorded new tracks in recent times.

I picked up this badge around 1986/87 I think - fab!
