The Styng-Rites: Baby's Got a Brand New Brain (Snarfle). Two good discs so far in this bunch, this being the debut from Greenock’s favourite band of psychobillythrashers.

0 Spotted in a club in Liverpool was Pete Wylie of Wah! looking extremely thin and engaged in deep conversation with Frankie Goes to Hollywood‘s Paul Buthertord. Paul says that now he has got rid of his moustache, the next thing to go is the band‘s involvement with ace producer Trevor Horn. The new Frankie album, which the band are writing at this very moment will not be produced by the man who got most of the credit for making them a success in the first place—strange huh? Stranger still is the fact that the exotic location for the recording of their new material is taking place in star-studded Jersey. .
