Tears For Fears: "We're going to weird out like you wouldn't believe!"

Chris Heath, Smash Hits, 1 January 1986

1985 was quite a year for Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal. They had a number one single and album in America and massive hits just about everywhere else. They went round the world on a huge 144-date tour. They turned down the chance to play at the world's biggest pop concert. And Roland had a front page row with his dad. So what about 1986? More hits? More tours? More rows? No, actually. But, according to Roland... "we're going to weird out like you wouldn't believe!"
