Kajagoogoo ‘Smash Hits’ Feature – February 1983
It’s been a while since KajaFax featured vintage magazine articles, so today we thought we would showcase some magazine scans for your enjoyment.
These scans have been brought to us via the wonderful Smash Hits blog http://www.likepunkneverhappened.blogspot.co.uk/ and KajaFax extends its gratitude to Brian from that site for his hard work in bringing this wonderful archive to the web and in doing so making it accessible to us.
Smash Hits magazine was Britain’s premier pop magazine of the 80’s and 90’s. First hitting the shelves to much excitement in 1978, the publication closed down in 2006 due to a decline in sales, probably the inevitable result of online media readership overtaking physical published products.
An unfortunate by-product of the internet…music downloaders take note!
A major player in its heyday, the magazine had many famous employees, with Neil Tennant (of the Pet Shop Boys), Kate Thornton, and NME editor and pop-press legend Nick Logan all on it’s payroll at one time or another.
This iconic magazine holds a very special place in the hearts of many a child of the 1980’s and is sadly missed.
Kajagoogoo featured many times in the magazine. Here is one such occasion – Enjoy!
