Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Berlin: G-Mex Centre, Manchester

Paul Mathur, Melody Maker, 17 January 1987

MR HOLLY Johnson is right, shooting stars never do stop, more's the pity. Instead they tumble entropically to the back of beyond, hollering, hooting and turning sparkly dreams into broken promises. Apt then that Berlin should be supporting, little comets burning up through the blackness, but at least looking upwards.
