Furr - Furr (1977)
The advent of KISS makeup was both a bane and a boon to the world of rock music. While KISS makeup has the tendency to make artists look unbelievably silly, it has the bonus effect of serving as a warning sign; just as poison dart frogs have bright colors to warn you not to eat them, Furr and other bands wear KISS makeup to warn you not to listen to them.
What the hell's with the knee-high leather boots? These guys seem to be going for a combination superhero/go-go dancer look. Maybe these guys were involved in some long-lost saturday morning cartoon pilot where they're dancer rockstar masked superheroes who fly around the universe in a rocketship powered by HOT GUITAR LIXX. Or maybe they're just stupid.
