Description
Title supplied by cataloger.; Photograph included in the Exhibit: From Pop to the Pit, The LAPL Photo Collection Celebrates the L.A. Music Scene, 1978-1989.
Influenced by L.A. 60s legends The Byrds and The Buffalo Springfield, The Bangles set themselves apart from other all-female bands of the era. Their blend of sixties-influenced folk rock and melodic vocal harmonies gained them major commercial and critical success with the songs, "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Manic Monday."
Photograph caption dated February 11, 1983 reads, "The Bangles don't appreciate comparisons to the Go-Go's. From left: Vicki Peterson, Annette Zilinskas, Susanna Hoffs and Debbi Peterson."
