Wonder Stories: Crushed Velvet and Eyeliner
“Dracula’s at the front door, and he’s brought Robin Hood with him”. My dad spoke with bemused solemnity, his head poked around my bedroom door. He was signaling the arrival of my two band mates in Wonder Stories-Doncaster’s very own New Romantic pop group. Dennis, in his black cloak, was the vampire in question and Nick, butcher by day, foppish Sherwood Forrester by night.
Letter from Sounds Journalist Betty Page, an early supporter of the New Romantic scene and of Wonder Stories.
