25 TEARS FOR FEARS, The Adventures, Chippenham Golddiggers, Thursday 21 March 1985

Took the coach down on my own! Got a culture shock during The Adventures bright, excellent poppy set; their vocalist was none other than Terry Sharpe, former vocalist of my new wave powerpop faves The Starjets! Met and chatted to Adventures backing vocalist Eileen Gribben afterwards.

Tears For Fears played a professional set of their slightly angsty yet radio-friendly 80's synth pop, opening with "Mother's Talk", which they started to play from behind the safety curtain (!), and mainly based on new "Songs From The Big Chair" LP, with lengthy encore, the sing-along "Shout" a highlight.
