FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD
Liverpool (ZTT)

Here it is! The ‘many drinks in the making’ second album. Unlike the double meaning-cluttered ‘Pleasuredome’, ‘Liverpool’ is… Noisier! Meaner! Leaner! A pure metal bash. Frankie fill the gaps left by the unsatisfying, fake rock posing of Billy Idol and his cronies.

The brilliant, windswept ‘Warriors Of The Wasteland’ (new single) opens the package and the noise doesn’t let up. You can ‘Rage Hard’, ‘Kill The Pain’ and achieve ‘Maximum Joy’ all in one raucous session. “We don’t wanna die, we wanna party,” say the laddies on the sleeve.

You can dies partying to ‘Liverpool’.
