If you remember anything about the summer of 1982, then you will definitely have memories of Madness being at No.1 with "House Of Fun". This fun ska-revival pop tune was actually the band's only No.1 in the UK, and it's certainly one of the British public's favourite songs from the 1980s.

The original version of the song had the unusual title of "Chemist Facade", and the song didn't even have the "Welcome to the house of fun" chorus. We're all very grateful that this was soon changed!

The popular white T-shirt above is an officially licensed design, and it's available in sizes from small to XX-large at Amazon UK.

There is also another listing for the same House Of Fun T-shirt, so you may also want to check this to get the best price, although they were exactly the same as I write this post!

I recommend the first supplier, which has been a very popular choice through my Simply Eighties website for some years now. It's also receiving very positive feedback on Amazon.

Another very popular choice with my customers is this Madness band members photo T-shirt, which features the message "Entertaining the British public since 1979". It comes in any colour, as long as it's black! Well, black's a good choice, at least! It's a great design and comes in sizes from small to XXL for adults. It's also receiving very positive reviews and ratings.

A Madness T-shirt is the perfect choice for showing your love the Ska and 2 Tone music, the band itself, and/or the 1980s. It's also ideal for wearing to 80s festivals, concerts and events. But it can, of course, just be worn as a summer tee at home or while out and about.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we
