FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: The Power Of Love (ZTT) The new gods are horror and sex said Frankie in “Two Tribes”. I dont think they really mean it. Here they take a welcome break from the cynical business of controversy-stirring to deliver a tender little love song: all acoustic guitars and Holly Johnson busting a gut to sound achingly sincere. It might not sell as many t-shirts as “Relax” but the sharp moneys on Des OConnor doing a cover version within two years. A friend just back from New York tells me their new stage show is mediocrity dressed in dry ice but I shant be swayed. A sublime Single Of The Fortnight for all swinging lovers.
