Ben Thompson, MOJO, November 1997
THE RICKETY HAMMERSMITH RESIDENCE WHICH houses TFI Fridays dressing rooms is an alarming place to find yourself, and not just because theres a chance of bumping into Chris Evans wearing only a towel. The sense of artifice in action is almost overwhelming. Stylists confer on make-up dos and donts "This on the brow and this on the lid, the look will be classic" and bands sulphuric egos seep out from under closed doors like poison gas. On a white wall hangs Björks empty dress: an elaborate creation made out of ancient sofa-coverings from a deserted stately home.
