Here's one of Doug Newby and me out of control at our rehearsal space (10' X 12' mini-storage).  Notice the flannel and wool!  We weren't necessarily trying to be trendsetters, it was just damned cold out there!!!  We ran the entire band out of one light socket.  I call this, The ORIGINAL GRUNGE ROCKERS... circa 1982.
