The mid-90s band Make-Up didn’t actually wear makeup, at least not overt KISS-style facepaint. They did, however, wear matching suits from time to time. Either way, I’m a fan. Think punk meets soul.

My favorite song: “Born on the Floor” from my favorite album I Want Some. To sample the goods, check out the Make-Up on Pandora

Tidbit: Apart from playing on a slew of other albums with several other seminal D.C. bands (like Nation of Ulysses), Make-Up lead singer Ian Svenonius is also the host of Vice Magazine’s “Soft Focus.”

Here he is chatting up Andrew W.K. at the Guggenheim in NY (yes, really):

    There is a beautifully geometric love song titled ‘I Am Pentagon’ on the ‘Save Yourself’ LP. Highly recommend it.
