Nuclear Beauty Parlor
To mess with people by laughing at something you feel totally serious about, usually improvised by a group of female friends. The original Nuclear Beauty Parlor was group of Art Punk chicks in San Francisco back in the eighties. They started out getting arrested protesting nuclear weapons and then did street theater dressed in pink beauty parlor smocks and looking good so they wouldn’t get beat up by cops. Then music producer Bill Graham liked the lyrics to their theme song and funded the 45 vinyl single recorded by members of The Tubes because the Nuclear Beauty Parlor was not a band. The record is archived at Swarthmore College as an artifact of the nuclear freeze movement. The lyrics to the Nuclear Beauty Parlor song are sweet, look them up.
Naaw.. this a Nuclear Beauty Parlor, right?
