Wet Wet Wet: Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow

William Shaw, Smash Hits, 29 June 1988

And there, swishing nobly in amongst the crowd are the St John's Ambulance Johnnies whisking out the limp bodies who've come over all feeble. What's going on? Is the dazzling gleam from Marti's grin just too much for any human to bear? Er... no. Not really.
