The Mission: It's For You-Hoo!

Lloyd Bradley, Q, February 1990

IN A CRAMPED loft-conversion on the outskirts of Leeds, something of a party atmosphere prevails. Ring pulls are being pulled, Silk Cuts smoulder in ashtrays, in-jokes are being exchanged. Amid the thick Yorkshire banter several conversations go on at once, and The Mission are getting to know a couple of hundred of their fans.
