Something that we have been meaning to showcase for some time is the work of Patrick Wray.
Patrick is a friend of KajaFax, and likewise, we at KajaFax are big fans of Patrick and his creative work.
For those who are new to it, here is his career résumé, lifted straight from www.patrickwray.com:
“Patrick Wray grew up in the North of England before leaving to study art and creative writing at Dartington College of Art. He is now based in London where he has exhibited work in several solo and group shows. His work has been featured in many publications including The Fader, The Pix, Decode and Times Education Supplement. He has also recorded and released three albums of lo-fi experimental pop. He made his first experiments in hand drawn t-shirt art about five years ago….”
Some time ago, Patrick was commissioned to design this fab Kajagoogoo shirt:
Fast forward a few months, more specifically to last week… Another ‘Goo fan and another bespoke order. Could this have been from a KajaFax reader? If so, please let us know!
This unique tee is something sure to interest our readership and one that we could not let pass by without a mention!
Clearly, nothing is ‘Too Much Trouble’ for Patrick…. (ahem!) ;)
You can also follow him via twitter @PatrickWray1.
There are many special editions of Kajagoogoo and Limahl hits out there, with many of the more interesting ones originating outside the UK. Our featured single today comes from Japan and is, we think, pretty scarce. If any Japanese readers can give us more information on the release or indeed translate the text written on it, please contact us as email@example.com. What we do know is that this particular chunk of vinyl has Only For Love on one side, Never Ending Story on the other, and has what we believe to be handling instructions stamped on the front in red ink.

Have you got any curious vinyl or memorabilia to share with other readers?
If so, please contact us to have it featured here on-site.
Thanks for visiting Kajafax, the only active Kajagoogoo community on the internet!
Scarce audio and video footage is something that we particularly enjoy here at KajaFax, and we know that you do too. What we bring to you now is pulled from the 1989 archives and features the sublime sounds of Simon Ellis, Nick Beggs and Austin Howard. Following their support slot on theT’Pau tour in the UK and over Europe, and fresh from their efforts at the San Remo Festival, Ellis Beggs and Howard hit the road in 1989 as a headlining act.
A year or so ago, KajaFax showcased a bootleg CD recording originally made at the Birmingham Goldwyns gig back in the February of 1989. For today’s feature, we thought it would be nice to share some more of that footage with you. If you missed our original article, you can find it HERE.
Recorded live in Birmingham, here are Ellis Beggs & Howard performing ‘Bad Times’
Thanks for visiting KajaFax – we will see you again soon!
KajaFax return with a gig reminder
Saturday 11th July 2015 – Chilfest Festival, Pendley Meadow, Tring, Hertfordshire
Music festivals in the UK are a great opportunity to see Limahl perform on the big stage in front of a big crowd. This weekend sees ‘Chilfest’, an event sure to be a real cracker! With great acts such as ABC, Billy Ocean, The Blow Monkeys and Bad Manners in the Saturday line-up, Chilfest is well worth the cost of admission! For ticketing information, click HERE.
Here’s hoping for some fine, sunny weather and a great performance by our man. Have a great time!
WDR 4 Summer Open Air Concert – ’80’s Disco Party’, Münster, Germany
To round off today’s news article, we have an update on the live Limahl show that took place in Munster, Germany on Friday night. The concert itself is scheduled to be broadcast on the radio on Tuesday 14th July at around 7pm UK time, and can be heard HERE. For now, here is a small section of video filmed and supplied courtesy of WDR4 Television. We also have some super photographs of Limahl on stage, taken at the event by Matthias Ahlke.
There are also some great pictures over at the German Limahl Fanclub site HERE.
Hello! Today we bring footage from last night’s Limahl performance. The Kajagoogoo frontman featured on the bill of the 80’s Superstar Festival, held at the Energylandia Amusement Park in Zator, Poland. If you were there, we hope you enjoyed the show!
One song always guaranteed to be in the set-list is Never Ending Story, and the clip we have for you now is of that very song, which Limahl uses to close his set.
Many thanks to Michael Jordan for filming and uploading this footage.
