|Lovelies And Uglies!! (According to 808 State)|
23rd February 1991
808 STATE are bounding their way up the charts with 'In Yer Face'. Why the interest in faces pondered Number One's Sara Lawrence? So she asked MARTIN, GRAHAM, DARREN and ANDY of 808 State to tell us who they thought were lovely looking people, and who were, erm, not so lovely.
DEMI MOORE (Actress who starred in Ghost.)
Darren: She's alright she is. And she's a dab hand at the old pottery (?!)!
MARVIN GAYE (Singer/ songwriter who had huge hits with such classics as 'I Heard It Through The
Graham: I like Marvin Gaye.
DOWN SYNDROME KIDS
Darren: I tell you what really took me aback was them two Downs Syndrome ballet dancers on Going Live!. No lies, it was the best thing I've ever seen on television. They were doing Phantom Of The Opera. It was really beautiful. They were perfect and it was brilliant to see.
THE WALTONS (Everybody's favourite TV family.)
Graham: All the Waltons family! They're beautiful! They're just so perfect.
Martin: Rod, Jane and Freddy are beautiful. Remember that song they sang, 'we've got a handful of songs to sing you'. That was brilliant!
Darren: She's a gorgeous woman with a beautiful voice. her voice just takes me away! She's saying funkiness !(?)
Darren: She reminds me of my nan something chronic. All those heavy blonde streaks and the fact she can't be bothered cooking and all that. She's brilliant!
Darren: Mothers around the world. Every mother's beautiful to their own son!
THE BABY JESUS
Martin: He's beautiful, and he's got the Colgate ring of confidence!
MC TUNES (Fellow collaborator with 808 State.)
Darren: There are loads of very unbeautiful people around.
Tunes, now he's an very
Martin: Now George Bush is a very unbeautiful person. He's just a fibber!
Darren: He's sad because he's white and he tries not to be. Martin: He's sad because he's told loads of lies about himself, and the nearest he got to a gang fight was when a girl slashed his botty with a comb or something like that! That's what really happened. Musically he's an abortion!
TERRY CHRISTIAN (Presenter of The Word.)
Darren: Top of the range tosser. He's the worst northener!
AMANDA DE CADENET (Fellow presenter of The Word.)
Darren: Put her in as well. She's a top tart.
YVETTE FIELDING (Blue Peter presenter.)
Martin: That square presenter from Blue Peter, Yvette Fielding, who wears crochet jumpers. She looks like one of your mom's mates who you wouldn't bother with! It's just too wholesome! I hate telly like that!
Darren: He's not nice. He's basically a 'nana. We don't like him and we don't like his attitdue to everything!
That 'Flash Back Jack', I could have screamed when I heard that. He's a mummy's boy with loads of dosh!
