* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dome_(band) Dome]], the ([[IHaveManyNames main]]) side project of Music/{{Wire}}'s Gilbert and Lewis, gained a small degree of notoriety for their outlandish stage costumes, particularly [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dome_band.jpg their enormous]] [[http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=135665 tubular hats.]] Also double as {{Cool Mask}}s.
