Very Metal Flashback: The Plasmatics on Fridays in 1981…

1981 was a good year for The Plasmatics (as long as you omit the Milwaukee incident of 1981). In addition to their performance on the short lived ABC show, Fridays (above in all it’s nine-plus minute glory), the band also blew Andy Gibb’s mind on Solid Gold, rocked out with John Candy on SCTV, and Wendy O. gave her  infamous interview with Tom Snyder.

The band also released two records in 1981, their second with Stiff, Beyond the Valley of 1984, and the EP, Metal Priestess. And you thought the 80′s was all big hair and bullshit…
