More 80s pop stars spotted in New Zealand



Following my extremely successful recent post on the whereabouts of Pepsi, I can now bring you reports on two more 80s pop stars who fled to New Zealand. Alannah Currie of the Thompson Twins is now a mother against genetic engineering, and produced a billboard featuring this multi-breasted woman to make a point which is not entirely clear. Meanwhile, Roland Gift, former Fine Young Cannibal has become a gravel-voiced bank spokesman who appears in moody and stark TV commercials.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I detest Roland Gift. But I'll try; I hate him very very much in deed and his voice is very silly or at least it was very silly, God knows what it's like now.

And more to the point what are all these people doing in New Zealand? Is there enough space for all of them?

Contrary to popular opinion (timbo's), I really like Roland Gift, particularly the bit in Scandal where he had the black polo neck on, screaming at Christine from the pavement. Classy. His singing was rubbish though. And the dancing truly hideous.

New Zealand is empty. I've been. I've seen it. It's gorgeous but there is absolutely NOTHING to buy apart from hideous knitted cardi's, nylon slacks and All Blacks kits.

I wonder if Pepsi gets her clothes off the internet, like my friend in Christchurch. Could someone try and find out? She can't wear a sofa.

Timbo - so he drives you crazy, does he?
Miggins - you are not Mrs Miggins you are my friend Donna.

Blimey. I hope my boyf doesn't see that poster - he's likely to become a PRO-GM campaigner!

Just a note, bought the book after reading all of your blog. After all, you're worth it:-)

I adored Roland Gift. I still recall hearing "Johnny come home" for the first time. I thought it was the coolest track ever. In fact I have just had to you tube it, and it is still great. The "what is wrong in my life..." part is fab. I don't think he lived up to his potential. Le sigh. It's a hard thing to do.
