Nasher Says Relax
Offer Price £5.00
FRANKIE SAYS was the message and people listened. Now
Brian Nash recounts a behind the scenes story that magically
recreates the meteoric rise of Frankie Goes To Hollywood
– from the struggling days of obscurity playing local Liverpool
clubs to a record-breaking run of chart hits around the world.
Nobody could have possibly imagined the notoriety and fame
that Frankie would create. One of the biggest bands of the
1980s, they became only the second act in the history of the
UK charts to reach number one with their first three singles;
Relax, Two Tribes and Power of Love.
Nasher has been a musician for more than 40 years and his
memoirs reveal a life in rock and roll’s rollercoaster world.
It’s still going up . . . and down. He went to Hollywood and
came back – he remembers it all with sparkling anecdotes,
poignant and funny, but an eye and ear witness to what really
went on, because he was THERE. Holly Johnson was the
frontman, but there were other key players in the team.
Holly’s had his own book out – now it’s time for the flip-side.
Nasher says: “We all saw our own side of the story. In the
band we went from Granada TV to Saturday Night Live.
“From a club in Liverpool called The State to touring the
This is a true story charting the rise and fall
– and rise again – of Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Of tax
havens and tax men. From rock and roll to back on the Dole.
Contracts, lawyers and lawsuits from the men in suits.
Thirty years on . . . and some of us are still trying to get paid.”
Featuring a fantastic collection of unseen photographs from
Nasher’s own archive, as well as rare interviews and a catch up with the other band members, this is the book that no Frankie fan should be without. It’s the memoir of a guitarist in a global band for over 30 years and the truth about the record industry, inside and out.
The story is about to unfold all over again.
This is Frankie Goes to Hollywood and beyond.....
