Madness: 7-Up

Peter Silverton, Smash Hits, 15 October 1981

FRIDAY afternoon. The Smash Hits works outing pay a visit to the movies. They munch popcorn, they suck their sweet orange drinks and watch a preview of the Madness movie, Take It Or Leave It. Halfway through the performance, a lunatic in a skirt runs down one aisle, hops across the apron in front of the screen and rushes back to "her" seat.
