Kajagoogoo Interview – ‘The Split’ – Melody Maker 1983

August 20, 2014

The subject of the Kajagoogoo split of 1983 is one that no fan enjoys to relive, but in nevertheless a major event in the history of the band.  Today, we publish scans of an interview piece originally printed on August 20th 1983, which is of course, exactly 31 years ago today.  The interview is with the remaining four members of Kajagoogoo and broaches the sensitive issue of what actually happened on that fateful day back in early August….

* Back in 1983, Melody Maker was published in a format similar to a modern day tabloid newspaper  – we have tried our best to scan the pages on a standard A4 scanner.  This was quite a tricky task, so please excuse any obvious joins, smears, or other blemishes *

    This is an interesting item for all Kajagoogoo fan! I love their music and songs; it’s a pity that they haven’t any gig or show together 😥 I can’t wait to read the article about Limahl!! 🙂

    Melody Maker is the English bible for musicians. Here Limahl posted his ad to find a band…right?
