Frankie Goes To Hollywood: Overview


Frankie Goes To Hollywood: The usual explanation is given on the B side of 1983's Relax, called One September Monday.



"There was a band I was in, I was just learning. We needed a name quickly because we had to get a gig and there was a piece of the New Yorker magazine stuck to the wall in the rehearsal room and it said 'Frankie Goes To Hollywood' and showed a picture of Frank Sinatra getting mobbed by teenyboppers."



William Johnson, who gave this account, earlier changed his name to Holly (Holly Johnson), played with and formed a band punningly called Hollycaust. What he doesn't say is that the headline contained the magic word "Holly" - just as he was reforming the outfit with Paul Rutherford, ex-Opium Eaters.



Some pop trivia books have said the headline in question related to fellow veteran singer Frankie Laine's film plans or even British comedian Frankie Howerd. This is variously said to have appeared in Variety and a Liverpool newspaper. Variety is almost certainly correct; it indeed carried a piece on Sinatra moving from Las Vegas.



The band became informally known as "The Frankies" (The Hollies had already been done) and the remnants toyed with the name of The Lads after the departure of the two main front men. Cf Bonzo Goes To Washington. Spoof band: Paddy Goes To Holyhead.
