It’s a double sided issue of Smash Hits this week, with Arcadia on the cover on one side, and The Cult on the other.

Keith Chegwin is the subject of a Q and A, where he reveals that he borrow’s Sarah Green’s make-up.

As you turn the magazine around, there is an interview with Echo and the Bunnymen, back after a year off, and all four members tell Smash Hits what they were up to.

Cover stars The Cult get a double page interview.

Paul King, lead singer of King and future VH1 presenter reviews the singles, giving his vote for Best Single to The Fall.

In album reviews, Blancmange get 8 out 10, while Simple Minds only managed 7 out of 10.
