What image do you think the guys should go with?
Vienna / Rage In Eden...(Which is virtually the same look!)

Quartet?

Lament?

Any idea where we could obtain the gear for this...we may be able to have most of it made to spec? laugh

Regards...

I'd go for the Rage In Eden look - Classical 30's clothes. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> A good starting point for these are your local charity shops or theatrical costumier's (bound to be spelt wrong).

Failing that go for a consistant monochrome look (Black Combat Trews or Chino's with white or black pilot's shirts). That'll get you started.

Tough question. I think I would go for the more "normal" look of the Lament-era. The question is: do You prefer long or short hair? wink

By the way: Mike, any chance that You'll have a grey Ibanez one day?

As for the grey Ibanez, yes it will happen....I just have to get the right guitar....I'm looking shock

This would probably work the best for the authentic "tribute band" look. Its the image that most people will remember Ultravox for (here in the UK anyway).

And it looked pretty snappy too. smile But really, I didn't like the high-waisted balloon trousers and all that. Rather tacky. I liked the more sophisticated image of 1980/81. smile

The Vienna / Rage in Eden look is wonderful, but the stuff can be hard to come by - believe me, I love it and look for it but rarely find it these days. Get it right and it looks superb, get it wrong and it looks like a second-rate school production of "Bugsy Malone". Years a-gone you could pick it up at any jumble sale for under 50p (literally: I got my coat and tails for 15p, inside it bears the legend "Tailors to the Egyptian Legation", real mid-century stuff). I've still got a decent pin-striped double-breasted demob-type suit, no labels, but for some reason the waist seems to have shrunk since I last wore it. I remember looking everywhere for a brown pin-striped suit of a similar age as Midge ahd one at the time, but never found one. The Quartet look might be easier and allow more interpretative leeway. Or how about the Pink Thing Era - just buy a twenty quid set of Argos hair clippers and wear your own clothes . . . I'll get me coat.

Hi chaps

Well, if you've the resources, you could change to suit your audience:

1980: Vienna album cover thin lapel'd suits (which always remind me of 'Shoestring' for some odd reason)...

1981: R•I•E plus-fours(...nahhhh, too Haircut 100...), Foxx Garden-era waistcoats and Victoriana shirts (?), Thin Wall video Casablanca chic, etc...

1982: Quartet...er....fashionzzzz? OK: For Quartet go with the Reap The Wild Wind ethic: WWI & WWII military clobber, but British only (you simply have to redress the whole Private Ryan / Band of Brothers historical singularity). Remember: any of you dress as squaddies and you'd better really blanco that webbing or there'll be hell to pay!...

1984: Lament...a bit up in the air really. How about the David Bailey group shot? You know: the one in black and white? Everybody happy and laughing...and black is sooo slimming ...

1986: repeat after me: "There was NO 1986!!!"

No, Cromwell, there was no 1986. Except for THE CULT: "Love", the album, excellent!!!

And, of course, THE SMITHS: "The Queen is Dead". Green vinyl.

And so on.

But NO - there was no 1986 for UUUUUUUULTRAVOX!

1986 was really when "The 80s" was ending, i.e most people's memory of it entails up to about '85. in the way that "the 60s" in people's minds is about 1965 to 69 at most {hippy era). Getting to the point, any look other than the longhaired one would get my vote. cheers Grant

I was putting a set together for an 80s gig in June and the vast majority of the songs date from 1980-85. arnie

Doesn't really matter which era you opt for, try Armstrongs in Edinburgh (in the grassmarket and South Clerk Street) they sell lots of vintage clothing and ex-milatary gear! Good luck!

Maybe there's a competition in here? "Design a Look for the Monument Boys", incorporating elements of looks gone by, a tip of the trilby to images we knew plus a wee streak of something new (. . . and something sinful?), how evolution might have worked had not extinction supervened.

Just a thought.

Fantastic! That "late entry" at Number One looks like teh bastard offspring of Dr Seuss' Grinch and a badger after one alcopop too many. Ah, well, I suppose it's something for him to show his grandchildren.

Good luck with the outfitting, it sounds as if interesting things are afoot. In fact, reading the latest post, I had a pair of pin-stripe trousers of immaculate cut and 1930s vintage that someone "borrowed" to get a copy made. I never saw them again, but rumour has it that he wore them at his wedding, the cheeky sod. If I ever get them back you can have first refusal if the size is right! Mind you, you'll sweat like a pig ( no offence, CP ) if you wear them on stage, that 30s stuff was made before we had global warming.

Talking about "Monument Image"...

Well literaly, I have some cracking stuff you all out there might find interesting. In Crewe I used my small pocket camera (Canon Ixus 500) as a video mode to capture 1 gb of stuff. I used Final Cut Pro to mess around with that stuff, and the result....WOW! You all have to see.

I used Mikeīs recordings from Citrus Club as a sound, and spent hours after hours to adjust "lipsynch" to make these live videos enjoyable.
I made two videos; "Hymn" & "All Stood Still", plus I made one slide show as well; images from Citrus & Greenock plus images from Crewe with "Vienna". I also did exellent looking DVD-menu.

Please, sent me you add details and I will sent you a copy.

I hope you donīt mind Monument Boys! wink

Old friends also (paul, don, mike L....) please sent me your add details as well, īsince I change my internet operator while ago, my old posts have all been deleted.

You are going to like/love this DVD!!!! Believe me!!!!

Cheers for all, ari

P.S. Silence from my part few weeks is because my life has been harder than ever before... Tell you later. But this dvd I made gave me the reason to think totally something else and it was my pleasure to make it. First I thought I put these files (videos) on internet, but īcause they are such an amazing stuff (both quality and editing) I really wanted you all have these as a good quality copy, not as poor internet copy.
