The Aesthetic of the Dum Dum Girls.
















Above concert photos credited to horsemeatpie

I really love the Dum Dum Girls dark driving beats, ghostly megaphone harmonies and their distorted tales of teen girl group woes.  Aside from their music, they also have great style thanks to lead Dum Dum Dee Dee's Shangri-las-esque Sweetheart-Gone-Badgirl chic.  She found her signature striped stockings on a trip in NYC, and that's all she wrote, she's been donning them ever since.   I also have a serious soft-spot for redheads, bangs, Asian girls in rock bands (ie Shonen Knife), girl drummers, short boots, all black lace, all of which the Dum Dum girls satisfies.

I was so excited to see your posts on the Dum Dum Girls. I had just discovered them myself a few months ago and fell in love with both their fashion and their music!!!
