Eton Crop - You should see this

Band name Eton Crop - Josephine Baker PortraitDutch post punk band from Kudelstaart, North Holland.

Since its creation the quirky formation was mainly inspired by bands as The Fall and The Undertones, so much is clear; less clear is why Eton Crop was chosen as a band name - or it should be that the members of Eton Crop at the time wore their hair relatively short.

You see, the Eton Crop is a coiffure of a hundred years back, a style that takes its name from the hairstyle that is or was prevalent at the exclusive English boys school Eton (in full: King's College of Our Lady of Eton besides Wyndsor).

It is by the way a ladies' hair style - to which we must immediately add that especially masculine lesbians exposed a preference for it.
