Frankie Goes To Hollywood – The Artists

Frankie Goes to Hollywood were a British band formed in Liverpool, England in the 1980s. The group was fronted by Holly Johnson (vocals), with Paul Rutherford (vocals), Peter Gill (drums, percussion), Mark O’Toole (bass guitar), and Brian Nash (guitar).The group’s 1983 debut single “Relax” was banned by the BBC in 1984 while at number six in the charts and subsequently topped the UK Singles Chart for five consecutive weeks, going on to enjoy prolonged chart success throughout that year and ultimately becoming the seventh best-selling UK single of all time. It also won the 1985 Brit Award for Best British Single. Their debut album, Welcome to the Pleasuredome, reached number one in the UK in 1984 with advanced sales of over one million. After the follow-up success of “Two Tribes” and “The Power of Love”, the group became only the second act in the history of the UK charts to reach number one with their first three singles; the first being fellow Liverpudlians Gerry and the Pacemakers from the 1960s.

Watching The Wildlife – The Song

‘Watching The Wildlife’  is the seventh and last single by British pop band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Released in 1987, it is taken from the album Liverpool. Of the three singles culled from Liverpool, “Watching the Wildlife” was the most radio friendly, lacking the rocky sound of “Rage Hard” and “Warriors of the Wasteland”. It is the only one of the three Liverpool singles not to have a CD single release at that time and the mix used on the 7″ vinyl single has never appeared on a UK issued compact disc. The 7” packaging made reference to animals, with a panda and dolphin on the sleeve.

The Giant Panda – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the head of a Giant Panda as featured on the records sleeve. The giant panda also known as the panda bear or simply the panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is characterised by large, black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Though it belongs to the order Carnivora, the giant panda is a folivore, with bamboo shoots and leaves making up more than 99% of its diet. Giant pandas in the wild will occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the form of birds, rodents, or carrion. The giant panda lives in a few mountain ranges in central China, mainly in Sichuan, but also in neighbouring Shaanxi and Gansu. As a result of farming, deforestation, and other development, the giant panda has been driven out of the lowland areas where it once lived, and it is a conservation-reliant vulnerable species. It is the symbol for the World Wild Fund For Nature. (WWF). The WWF is an international non-governmental organisation founded in 1961, working in the field of wilderness preservation, and the reduction of human impact on the environment. It was formerly named the World Wildlife Fund, which remains its official name in Canada and the United States.
