Welcome to the Pleasuredome by Frankie Goes to Hollywood

“It's thirty -- 30! -- years since Welcome to the Pleasuredome came out. There really has never been a pop band quite like them since. I so wanted one of those "Relax" t-shirts as a kid. However, my mum thought they were too expensive and so did the "obvious" thing and made me one. By embroidering "Relax" onto a string vest.”

Hadn't heard this for ages, until it was played on the radio yesterday. This is a BIG song, even this 'radio version' but if you've never heard the 13 minute long 12", it's worth a listen too.

This wonderfully, preposterously, ridiculously, gloriously excessive album is 30 years old this month! Frankie says...

"Who, after all, is Paul Virilio anyway? Even the name sounds as if it belongs to a B movie actor, a member of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, a contestant in a body-building competition. I know that 'he' writes books but does such a person actually exist?" –Dick Hebdige
