The Lotus Eaters: from Max Headroom to Louise Brooks
Just stumbled upon this 1985 music video of "It Hurts," by the Lotus Eaters. It features Louise Brooks in some scenes from Pandora's Box.
The Lotus Eaters formed in Liverpool, England in 1982. Their debut single "The First Picture of You," from their debut album, No Sense of Sin (1984), became a hit in the UK and Europe. The band was mistakenly included in the New Romantic movement when they first appeared, as their sound was awash in '60s influences, namely the melancholic pop of the Zombies. "It Hurts" was the last single band released. They broke up in 1985.
[In 1991, the English band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) released a song called "Pandora's Box," which was subtitled "It's a Long, Long, Way." It' video also features clips of Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box. Sure seems as though those Brits love Brooks.]
