Welcome back to The Giddy Carousel of Pop! Hang on tight for a top pop ride.
In this episode writer, podcaster and former drummer with The Fall (1980-85) Paul Hanley joins us to peruse a ‘double A side’ issue of Smash Hits from 1981 and a whole lot more. Along the way we encounter Adam & The Ants, Stray Cats, Kim Wilde, Prince, Kraftwerk, Sparks, Stars On 45, Landscape, The Jam and Spandau Ballet among others, plus the usual Bitz, Letters and reviews. Paul also talks about his time with The Fall, who also happen to appear in the pages of this very issue of Ver Hits.
Read along with us.
