CMU reports the following news about a proposed reunion of that seminal English pop group F.G.T.H.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood are due to reform for a charity tribute concert for their producer Trevor Horn – but don’t get too excited, because it looks likely all but ,a href=”http://www.hollyjohnson.com/largeFrameset.html”>Holly Johnson will take part in the show, which kinda defeats the point. According to the Sun, Johnson is refusing to take part because he still bears a grudge over past money disputes with Horn.

Other artists signed up for the show, due to take place at Wembley Arena on 11 Nov in aid of the Princes Trust, are Lisa Stansfield, Simple Minds and the Pet Shop Boys.

What is the point of a reunion without Johnson? Bands can get away with it if their frontman is dead but this would be a bit much to take.

    When I heard the Muzak version of “Relax” at the Safeway I burst out laughing. A great song for those little old ladies to listen to while buying their cucumbers and bananas…
