Dear Get Smart!,
Please please please can you find out what’s happening with Frankie Goes To Hollywood? Will they get back together to record the third LP as ZTT said they would? Also, are there any plans for any live stuff to be released?

Frankie Goes To Hollywood won’t ever be getting back together, according to a “spokesperson” at their management office. Mark, Ped and Nasher have narrowed the shortlist of singers they’ve been auditioning down to five —
Holly Johnson meanwhile is in court trying to get off ZTT Records and will be writing songs soon for his solo career. Paul Rutherford is also going solo —
As for live recordings, yes, they do have a lot of concerts recorded and they probably will release some of them eventually, but not for a year or so. There is also apparently a Greatest Hits LP being released before Christmas presumably without the group’s consent as their management “spokesperson” confessed he knew “nothing about it”.
