Altered Images: Night Of The Living Dead Pop Stars

Dave McCullough, Sounds, 11 April 1981

THIS IS a musical box. The figure at the top is a pretty girl called Claire. She does a spinning entrancing dance. It's an old dance; it mightn't last very long. How long do we give it? Fifteen, or maybe more minutes? Not a life-time surely! But it's a long way away from the dead pop stars she sings about. Isn't it?
