ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

So Frankie Goes To Hollywoods new single is about any two tribes—e.g. men and women or any other opposites you can think of. So said Holly Johnson (or was it the other one) on Peter ‘Im so trendy Powells show. Why then should the group make a video showing the violent clash between the two super-powers and advertise the song by printing the horrendous statistics of a nuclear war? It may be a good thing to publicise these facts but for a pop group to try and make a profit by doing so is wrong.

Frankie are trying to cash in on teenagers anti-American/Thatcher/cruise opinions/feelings. This aint doing any good at all. Frankie should stop sensation-seeking and also realize that CND are not a trend but a dedicated peace-seeking organization. Am I making sense? I hope so.

In case you print this (!) Id like to say—a) Im not trying to provoke an argument by being ridiculous/thick/stupid on purpose; and b) its my opinion and Ill stick by it.
