Monday Photo Blog: Herbert Mooij and some blasts from the past!


November 5th, 2012 by

We’re setting the way way back machine to the late 1980s and heading to Holland this time for the Monday Photo Blog. Herbert Mooij is providing the visual inspiration this time. Marvel at Gorilla Biscuits, a young Henry Rollins, Negazione (despite all the nostalgia for the 80s, I have yet to see anyone have the guts today to rock the type of pants these guys are wearing in these photos), and the mighty Lärm.

Total Euro-pants on Negazione! The continent was full of kids wearing bright strides at the time. Can you imagine it??

Awesome pics! In the 80’s those pants were the shit! LOL I remember my sister wearing some Vision Skateboards pants with crazy prints during shows. I had like this short with like fluorescent X’s print. Hahaha, long time ago.
Negazione blew me out of my socks the first time I saw them, I will never forget.
Lärm thought me about straight edge that made my life changing in a certain direction.
Thanks for the pics, brings back a lot of memories.
