I’m working on another blog-related project at the moment and until that’s done in a few weeks (touch wood) I won’t have a lot of time to compose much in the way of lengthy blog posts. In the meantime I’m sure you won’t mind more videos and pics like this one of the luverly Valerie Leon.
The fact that the lead singers of Echo & The Bunnymen and The Smiths were on the cover of a glossy teen-pop weekly just shows you how bloody marvelous the music scene of the early 1980s was. Perhaps if he’d lived Ian Curtis would have made the cover of Smash Hits.
Though with that headline and the flowers it looks a bit as if they are “rivals” for some young girl’s affections and are both giving her their most soulful and smoldering looks. Maybe there was a photo romance story inside featuring Ian and Steven in a love triangle with Siouxsie Sioux.
