FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: Warriors (Of The Wasteland) (ZTT)

Cant you just see Frankie donning their studded leather underpants, hopping into their chariots and rampaging across a desolate, decaying landscape? Hum! This sounds like it could be the theme to Mad Max 4 with Frankie still trying their best to “rage hard” when maybe theyd be better relaxing a little more. Somewhere along the way the Liverpool louts have lost their winning formula and “Warriors (Of The Wasteland)” has none of the tongue-in-cheek humour or honest-to-goodness sleaze of earlier efforts. In fact, it sounds like theyve been listening to too many Ver Maiden records. Dear oh Lor!
