Duran Duran/Talk Talk: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Neil Tennant, Smash Hits, 7 January 1982

A LOT OF headbands and scarves in the audience tonight: red silk scarves tied around bushy barnets; thin chiffon numbers screwed round youthful necks; Palestinian scarves tossed over leather jackets; a rather dodgy scarf tied round the head of support band Talk Talk bass player, making him look more like Hilda Ogden than Rudolph Valentino.

Total word count of piece: 409
