Introducing…

FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD

(a zang tuum tumb phantasy)

Let’s go down the hall to the disciplining room…

Chapter One

Holly Johnson: one voice, flames, secrets.

Paul Rutherford: two voice, desire to be repeated as often as desired.

Mark O’Toole: bass, greed, speed, twist.

Peter Gill: drum, anxiety, immoderation.

Brian Nash: guitar, judging eye.

Chapter Two

“Get down there and lick that shit off my shoes!” Frankie demanded. Excited and half terrified, Peta began to lick the shit from his shoes.

Chapter Three

(spaces of ecstasy)… where can we come… BETWEEN razor AND revolver… BETWEEN hammer AND anvil… BETWEEN doors… BETWEEN currents…

1. RELAX (Sex Mix)
2. FERRY ACROSS THE MERSEY
3. RELAX

Chapter Four

In fact, in no sphere of behaviour does the character of a person show more clearly than in the sexual act—possibly because it is the least ‘learned’ and patterned behaviour. A person’s love, his tenderness, his sadism, or masochism, his greed, his narcissism, his anxieties—indeed his every character trait—is expressed in his sexual behaviour.[1]

Chapter Five

TREVOR HORN produced Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s first twelve inches.

Chapter Six

Frankie was a monster. No one could imagine what he demanded of his nephew.[2]

Chapter Seven

Further information about Frankie Goes To Hollywood, and information about all Zang Tuum Tumb fantasies, is available from ZTT Records, The ZTT Building, 8-10 Basing St. London W.11. Enclose s.a.e.

This, in company with the seven inches has been number one in Zang Tuum Tumb’s bold ACTION SERIES.

‘from dry to moist, from soft to hard.’

Chapter Eight

And it is the incision and tumescence and new intensive points, pain-pleasure points, that first extends the erotogenic extension.[3]

Chapter Nine

This is the end of the non-story we wanted to tell, and we hope that you won’t believe a word of what we have not said.
