Frankie Goes To Hollywood: Shoot!
Warner Music Vision, 40 mins

In the wake of a re-issued Relax — was it really 10 years ago? — ZTT offer us this collection of all the Frankie Goes To Hollywood videos, and much fun it is too. From the world-leaders-duffing-each-other-up grufferama of Two Tribes to the oddly besuited disco rock of Warriors Of The Wasteland, these videos represent the smart end of 1980s promo culture; for once, the bands wit and sassiness is reflected in the accompanying films. Inevitably, there are bits of Paul Morley interviews, but these have aged charmingly. This compilation is that rare thing, exciting nostalgia. ☆☆☆☆
