FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: ‘Rage Hard’ (ZTT) With a fanfare of media attention and a roll on the music biz drums, the prodigals stomp back. I think, in their position, it might have been as well to make it a slightly less auspicious occasion. Not a bad song, but by no means a great one, and certainly not a musical landmark to rival either ‘Relax’ or ‘Two Tribes’. There’s the unmistakable Holly vocals, backed by some manly chanting of the title and the lavish production that has become synonymous with ZTT product. On, and the statutory cover version on the B-side of the 12 inch is a rather over ambitious attempt to copy ‘Suffragette City’.
