[A] frothy celebration of the pop mag's Eighties heyday. Mrs Thatcher interview included! ( OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY)
[SMASH HITS] was bright, funny, irreverent and never afraid to ask important questions such as, "If you were a domestic appliance, what would it be?" This pick of the best bits presses all the right nostalgic buttons ( Q)
A fitting tribute to its surreal genius ( TIME OUT)
Rest assured there's THE BEST OF SMASH HITS to help jog your memory. And what a handsome volume it is, too: 200 pages of classic features, lovingly recreated with some sample song lyrics and pullout posters thrown in for good measure. Edited by Mark Frit ( Paul Burston, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
Were you one of the many millions who grew up on SMASH HITS? Did you collect the stickers, pull out the posters, read the lyrics to La Bamba and suddenly realise it was a song about 'doing the goat'? (hmmm). If you remember catchphrases such as 'Uncle Disgusting' and 'sniiiip!', if you kissed your poster of Morten Harket before you went to bed or thrilled when a SMASH HITS journalist fearlessly asked David Bowie 'you're not very good at acting, are you?' - then this book is for you. In its heyday in the mid to late 1980s, SMASH HITS enjoyed a circulation of over one million passionate readers. THE BEST OF SMASH HITS is for all those readers: a glorious, full-colour celebration of all the best (and some of the worst) bits. Including all the best features (Morrissey and Pete Burns' legendary joint interview!); the weirdest cover stars (Strawberry Switchblade!), the strangest song lyrics, the best 'black type' letters and more, it will also include memories from those who worked on the magazine. Genuinely engrossing, a hugely entertaining jaunt back to a time when journalists asked irreverent questions and pop stars had to answer them.
