Hottest Young Rock n Roll Band in Britain… Shock

“In my teens Record Mirror was an established UK music paper like NME and Sounds but in the 1980s changed format to glossy colour magazine that was more Smash Hits and pop orientated. It did look to have “serious” bands too and we made it on to the cover here in 1987 under the heading “Hottest Young Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in Britain... Shock”.
Was it a shock? Who were the competition amongst “hot” rock UK bands in 1987... answers on a postcard to the usual address haha”
