Shakin’ Stevens on the cover of Bravo of 2 December 1982.
That week Germany’s youth read about Bravo reporting from ABBA’s performance on the TV programme Show Express (one of their very last), what dreams mean, why Yazoo are the new Laurel & Hardy (not joking; these assholes actually said that, in reference to the members’ body shapes), a look-back at West Side Story, rock band BAP’s favourite bar, Madness and Depeche Mode on tour in Germany, a new film called E.T.
Oh, and remember the My Melody perfume ad with the girl in the paper boat from 1979, which ran a couple of days ago. She’s still floating around in the issue from three years later, like a good-smelling Flying Dutchman. And if she has not been rescued, she’s still floating on her paper boat.
