Vince & Alf...

A copy of Smash Hits from May 1982.

Ex-Depeche Mode member, synth maestro Vince Clarke, was terrific alongside Alison "Alf" Moyet in Yazoo. Vince went on to form the Assembly and then partnered Andy Bell in Erasure. Alison went on to a successful solo career. Her terrific voice stopped my mother's moan of many years standing that "modern pop singers can't sing!"


"At This Moment, You Mean Everything..."

Here's a nice badge from my collection. What visit to 1982 would be complete without a quick burst of "tooh-rye-tooh-rye-ay"? Cheers to Dexy's Midnight Runners for Come On Eileen - undoubtedly one of the best songs ever written (or so it seems after I've had a few pints).
