    Hilarious! Frankie were pretty much a kind of dance troupe and then a studio construct by Trevor Horn as he quickly found out they couldn't play anything (hence Howe). I think Holly Johnson was the only member on the first album!

      The sane practice doesn't stop people from liking Union....😉

      I love Welcome to the Pleasuredome and Liverpool. Both great albums.

        Yes. Plus something unique about Holly Johnson’s voice, to my ears anyway, he is both impressive and funny at the same time. Not sure if a serious reunion would be a good idea, though.

            The term “underrated” is thrown around and about, but Liverpool truly is. And I say this as a serious Trevor Horn fan.

              Pleasure Dome is a fine, fine album. Not your average synth pop thing. But to this day, I still don't have Liverpool and have forgotten whatever I may have heard from it. Any good?

                Johnson and second vocalist Paul Rutherford are both on the first album. Horn has subsequently regretted excluding the instrumentalists. Peter Gill and Mark O'Toole, the rhythm section, were central to the writing of most of the classic Frankie tunes like "Relax" and "Two Tribes".

                    I’m fantasizing about an upcoming FGtH US tour with special guests the Buggles ft. Downes & Horn.

                    Regardless of whether Horn and Frankie are currently on speaking terms.
