The B.P.I. Awards

Tom Hibbert, Smash Hits, 26 February 1986

While you were watching the awards ceremony on TV the other week, a select few music biz "nobs" were there in person at a big London hotel, nibbling bits of salmon, guzzling free booze, gossiping and picking up the odd award. People like Wham!, Tears For Fears, Phil Collins, Howard Jones, Go West, Alison Moyet, Tom Hibbert... Tom who? Oh, actually he's the one from Smash Hits in the Mr Byrite suit (£19.99), leather bowtie and Um Bongo-stained notebook chatting to Dracula. What?!
