Dale Bozzio has chops. She worked with Frank Zappa on “Joe’s Garage” and “Thing-Fish.” And, as much as anyone, she and her band Missing Persons defined the 80’s music landscape.
She fashioned tuxedos from packing plastic and Scotch tape, she made outerwear bras from moss growers and aquarium tubing and filled them with water and live goldfish, and wore skirts that looked like solar panels. Records, translucent vinyl–there was little Bozzio couldn’t upcycle into a head-turning look.
