Paul Young: Too Much, Too Young

Dave Rimmer, The Face, January 1985

CLOSE YOUR EYES and picture the man who is talking. Chances are you imagine him looking well turned-out in a sharp and quite possibly shiny suit. And although he's appeared in suits before and since, most likely that image derives from the cover of No Parlez, on which Paul Young sat, hands clasped a little awkwardly, in £400's worth of Antony Price tailoring.
