One notable exception to this festival of facial hair was the keysman for Marco Polio & the New Vaccines. While his bushy bandmate rolled and rushed, tore up textbooks and showed asscrack, the sedate synther held sway over by the keyboard, a clean-shaven, eyeliner-decorated Gary Numan look-alike, looking just as surprisingly smooth as old Numan must have in the beard-drenched late 1970s. (The only difference would be that, back then, the hairy dudes would've stomped all over anybody who looked like that. Savor the difference.)
Let's go to the photos, shall we? You decide.
