Just the job for Frankie

CHART-TOPPING band Frankie Goes To Hollywood have come a long way from the days when they were on the dole.

Just nine months ago, they were picking up £22 a week each. Today theyre on top of the pop world.


Their smash hit record, Relax, is still riding high in the charts at Number Five, despite being banned by the BBC because of its lyrics about sexual freedom.

And their new single, Two Tribes — a chilling anti-war message — went straight into the Number One slot.

The boys from Liverpool are thrilled by their success, but still have strong sympathies with Britains jobless youngsters.

Lead singer Holly Johnson, 23, said: “Were here to uplift the kids who are still standing in the dole queue.”

The band can now laugh at the Beebs ban on Relax which has sold 1,300,000 copies in Britain alone.

Hollys co-singer Paul Rutherford, 24, said: “Its a classic pop single — and a total embarrassment to the BBC.”
