The connection between #StarTrek and the #B-52s

Sentimental as Anything

Did you see the  connection between the band the B-52s and Star Trek (the original TV show)?

I was a big fan of the B-52s and I must say, as well as enjoying the music, I loved the fashion sense – especially the costumes and hairstyles  that reminded me of Star Trek.

I first saw the groovy B-52s on Countdown.

and of course the high hair and short, groovy 60s looking skirts.

The B-52 took their name from the high hair style (aka Beehive because of the beehive shape) and seemed to love the exaggerated 60s culture.

I saw a great T-shirt that combined these two great things – the B-52s AND Star Trek and here it is…
