Nuclear Beauty Parlor..."Want to look good for the arms race? At the Nuclear Beauty Parlor you can curl up & dye. Have an MX perm with B1 curls. You can be the envy of all the girls." This is some avant-garde weirdness from the early 80s that needs to be heard. It seems most appropriately at home at Digital Meltd0wn.
In the early 80s in San Francisco there were a group of art fags acting in performance art troupes like Monster Girls or Nuclear Beauty Parlor. This single is the second release from NBP. Both sides were written basically by Vicki Krohn. Re Styles of The Tubes fame sings the A-side while Vicki & some friends do the B-side. There are some other now famous musicians on this gem: Larry Batiste; Clayton (aka Claytoven) Richardson; & Will Kennedy. The cover illustration & design was done by Sub-Genii Paul Mavrides.
