Marilyn had a decent hit with Calling Your Name and Baby You Left Me  is another memorable tune.  He also appeared on the Band Aid single Do They Know Its Christmas? When he visited Australia for a promotional tour in 1984 he was mobbed by fans.

Now he’s revealed some new music that’s been produced by Boy George. George’s has just posted a teaser video for Marilyn’s ska song Wrongun. The video features a comical clip of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump.
