Mmmmmm, I like the no tie.
Thirty years later, and it seems Peter still feels the phantom earring they made him take out for Danny in Local Hero.
The funniest thing to me though, is how he’s always talking about being all punk rock and wearing leather trousers (although the bow-tie pictures always had me slightly dubious on that front) and that Danny’s whole persona was just totally alien, but the new pictures show that aside from the hair and the earring, young Peter’s clothes that he presumably chose to wear himself, don’t appear to be a million miles away from Danny’s dressed-by-his-mum-in-his-dad’s-suits look.
I love these pictures from The Hellfire Club and not the least because they are yet another example of delightful baby PCAP material hiding in plain sight: they were posted on the Do You Remember The Hellfire Club Facebook several years ago!
Now let’s hope some moving footage; surely, one of these arty kids had a home movie camera or a video camera that were around in the early 1980s and took it to the club. There might be some technical limitations to the footage, but I would be happy with anything.
(That picture where they’re all standing in a row — always makes me do a double-take because the guy who is wearing a bow tie looks like he could have just stepped out of a certain TARDIS…)
I’d say he was going for a somewhat Mod look only… baggier, I guess.
80s Mod? Poorly-tailored Mod? Yes, let’s go with that.
(PS: Baby Craig Ferguson alert, as well!)
