P4F -- "Propaganda For Frankie" -- isn't really associated with anyone
from either of those two groups as far as I know.  They originated in
Italy, with their only domestic release I'm aware of being a 12"
called "P:Machinery medley with Relax", on Emergency Records (a New
York indie label), serial number EMDS 6562 12.  Don't have it but I've
heard it, and it's kind of fun . . . the two songs actually mesh
pretty well, and the people singing do a reasonable imitation of the
real thing . . .

Liverpool bombed horribly, and I guess that's not too surprising if
everyone expected Frankie to duplicate the sound and style of their
debut effort, but I think overall it's a lot stronger album overall
than Pleasuredome was.  I'm always recommending it to people
everywhere else, so I may as well mention it here.
