Help me think who this chick is

She was in an early 80s band; she may have been Irish (if not she was British or Australian), and she painted a slash/lightning bolt on her cheek.

The girl from Thompson Twins?

Adam Ant?

No, it wasn't the girl from the Thompson Twins. She wasn't so outlandish--she was more like a sexy Sheena Easton type, but it wasn't Sheena Easton.

Toyah Wilcox?

If she did she was just copying Bowie.

It's not unusual

There was girl like that in the movie "Local Hero." The lightning bolt was green.

The Quarterflash singer? I'm thinking that's how she looked on their Album cover.

Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes?

Jordan from Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren's boutique, "Sex"? You see her in a lot of punk footage from the mid to late 1970s,

None of these is whom I'm thinking of (though I greatly appreciate the suggestions). It's the band that was famous; the woman in it was not famous on her own. And the band was absolutely from the early to mid 80s.

Siouxsie and the Banshees?

She didn't have tattoos but her makeup was like Bowie's in his glam rock phase.

The "I want candy" chick?

Stormer from The Misfits.

You're Welcome...

Oh ye gods, OP, how is Patty Smyth not famous on her own? Who remembers "Scandal" today? But Patty married John freaking McEnroe and lives like royalty. They've been married at least 15 years by now.

OP, check out my SCANDAL THE WARRIOR thread here on DL.

OP, you threw me with the British, Irish, Aussie angle. Patty Smythe is an American, and quite a bitch at that.
