Back in the ’80s, we had the Thompson Twins
Alannah was my idol, and we all had a crush on Tom Bailey.
Fast forward to 2012: Meet Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for “The Answer”) a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa who represent a fresh new style called ZEF.
According to Wiki, ZEF is a unique South African style that is modern and trashy and also includes out-of-date, discarded cultural and style elements. (???)
Composed of Yo-Landi (wearing black contacts and T-shirt dress), DJ Hi-Tek (in deformed face mask), and Ninja (in a orange jumpsuit), the trio performed their clubby single, “I Fink U Freeky,” on David Letterman.
That was painful to watch. I honestly can’t finish the clip.
Let’s bring back the Thompson Twins.
