Brian Tappert is co-owner of the Fort Lauderdale-based house label Soulfuric Recordings and one-half of the remix team Jazz-N-Groove Productions (with partner Mark Pomeroy). He tackles the question that has haunted music for decades: What fashion trend should never come back?
"Well, I recently saw some pictures of myself in the '80s, and I had on these horrible pants with Capezios [the white dance shoes that were popular shortly after Flashdance came out], and a leather jacket with shoulder pads. Very tacky. As for the fashion trend that should never come back -- I'm thinking parachute pants."
Good call, Brian. Runners up: bolo ties, white jeans, stirrup pants, spandex, and carrying a live animal on your shoulder. -- Audra Schroeder
