Thanks for these. Though I do disagree with one thing that is said in the article. It says that Terry has protested that he's never worn makeup in his life, but I've seen a picture of Terry putting on eyeliner and Terry wore make-up in the Fun Boy Three and Colourfield days.

I agree regarding the eyeliner I have that photo but I doubt if he wore Make up During The Colourfield or Fun Boy Three. I know he wore Make up in Things could be beutiful video but he was only having a laugh Smile

Simon Price was the journalist who helped break the Manic Street Preachers. He dressed in a slightly more over the top way than Richey Manic and was very into quoting from charcters like Quentin Crisp. The other Melody Maker journalists were excited about the return of Paul Weller and there was a split between journalists who liked "Dad rock" and journalists like Simon who liked art school bands who wore lots of make-up.
Simon tried to start a movement called Romo which was a sort of revival of the New Romantics. None of the bands he tried to hype got in the charts. (But) It's kind of interesting that Boy George has been saying that Culture Club are about to reform and that he'll be out doing Lady Ga Ga and that now there are less bands like Cast and young trendy people in Hoxton Square are dressing up bit more.
I've always loved More Specials. Roddy said once it was their Sgt Pepper and I agree.

True. I'm almost sure he wore make-up (well, eyeliner at least) in the Fun Boy Three days Very Happy.
