Agony and Ecstasy of ABC

Karen Schlosberg, Creem, June 1984

ALL EDUCATION begins with ABCs. This particular education is of the musical sort, concerning one Sheffield-based trio (formerly quartet) that took its alphabetical beliefs and translated them into a clever pop pastiche that won the hearts and dancing feet of music fans the world over. 'The Look Of Love'! 'Poison Arrow'! 'All Of My Heart'! Was The Lexicon Of Love far from your turntable in 1982? It certainly wasn't in this house.
