Rare and Unusual Merchandise: Limahl Jigsaw

March 2, 2015

In a recent article we presented a great piece of vintage official memorabilia with the US manufactured Kajagoogoo jigsaw puzzle. Not to be beaten on the merchandising front, (unofficial) team Limahl responded with this really cool Limahl puzzle! At 300 pieces, it’s not a whopper, but nevertheless still a lot of fun to complete.  Here it is, completed (albeit with two missing pieces) and photographed.

As usual, click on each individual image for a bigger version to open:

Great news for lovers of Kajagoogoo’s very own spaceman Nick Beggs, as new album Please Come Home is released and in stores from today.

Lonely Robot - Please Come Home

We have had this on the KajaFax homepage for a while, which hopefully many of you will have noticed.

The album is a project headed by It Bites singer John Mitchell, and features Nik Kershaw, Go West’s Peter Cox, and Steve Hogarth from Marillion amongst others. The ‘Rocket Boy’ himself provides bass guitar on the album which in itself makes it an essential purchase.

Rare and Unusual Merchandise: Kajagoogoo Jigsaw

February 16, 2015

A few years ago, KajaFax posted an article on unusual band merchandise, which featured such things as patches, pens, fridge magnets, bottle openers and the legendary Gimpy Dak offices giant paperclip!  What we have now is something that until a few months ago, none of us here at team KajaFax knew existed.

Published in 1983 by Starmakers in the United States of America, we present this  550+ piece Kajagoogo jigsaw puzzle.  Officially licensed by the Concert Publishing Company and in collaboration with Gimpy Dak Ltd, the puzzle features Kajagoogoo in late 1983 – ‘Big Apple’ era.  Not ones to avoid a challenge, we have completed the puzzle which is all present and correct after over 30 years of storage.

Completed Jigsaw

In fact, the puzzle is in lovely condition and is a brilliant piece of band merchandise.

We think that there must be more of these things around, certainly from the White Feathers era, and needless to say if we find any we will share them with you.

If you yourself have anything like this, please let us know!

Kajagoogoo Vintage Concert Review – Derby 1983

January 23, 2015

Sometimes, a piece of merchandise or memorabilia comes your way that you will only ever see one of.  Newspaper clippings tend to fall into that category, as the papers they originate from are rarely kept – especially if they are local rather than national papers.  For our fourth article of 2015, we wanted to give you the opportunity to read this review of the eighteenth date of the White Feathers tour, which took place at the Derby Assembly Rooms on May 25th 1983.

White Feathers

So far as we know, there is no recorded audio of this performance in circulation, and we hold no ticket stubs or photographs from this particular show.  If you have any, or if you were there, please get in touch!

This is what the reporter of the Derby Evening Telegraph had to say all those years ago….

As usual, to open a large, easy to read version of this article, click on the image.
