A point is all that you can score

Kicking off our Saturday night retro with a trip back to 1984. Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Two Tribes", possibly was one of my most played records of that decade.

In the beginning, I hated the Frankies and thought they were just irritating attention seekers. Until of course they released "Relax" and "Two Tribes" and "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" all touched by the mighty production hand of Trevor Horn, and things would never be the same again.

"Two Tribes" boasted a memorable video which saw then Cold War enemies 'Reagan' and 'Chernenko' have a good old fight with each other in the ring. Maybe the world's enemies should try that method today, rather than invading countries unnecessarily or blowing everyone to pieces. We can dream can't we...!
