Face '83: Was (Not Was)

1983's version of Out Come The Freaks was the second of a none-more-Douglas-Adams four-part trilogy. It came two years after the original, but was the first of the sequence to reach the UK chart. Although only 41.

Whether you think this was a wise choice for The Face or not depends entirely on how you feel about Was (Not Was). Personally, I think they tended to produce work that you'd expect would be better for all that over-thinking, but I guess that that is why I'd probably never be invited to write for i-D or Blitz. A narrow victory to The Face, I think.

10 - 6.
