The Blue Meanie named after the band.. And this song is about industrial crap getting in the water. So it seemed apt. And yes they are from the eighties.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSvCCMVzJzo Made from wire from a set of broken ear buds. There is a dark blue wire with a white core. I removed the core so it would wrap flat. It is made up of lots of very small wires. Smaller than the xtra small UTC. There are also a red and a light copper wire in them that are the same stuff. I used some black flash for the rib and coated it with hard as nails for durability. Dubbing found laying around my vise.
