Will Art Brut be on?
there is some Pat Sharp involved
Jimmy Saville is hosting with Fearne Cotton.
The chemistry will be ELECTRIC!
what time is it on?
of UTTER SHITE
AH man, I can't believe I missed it! Where will I get my fix of over-the-hill pop stars performing songs I was bored with before they even came out now?
...they were just showing videos of old performances. There were no bands playing "live" on the show.
"No Top of the Pops would be complete without some hard progressive rock."
My thoughts exactly, haha
I laughed at that, too. If that were true, it wouldn't be cancelled.
Muse weren't shown.
that TOTP? if it was so great as they all said it was, why was it cancelled eh? I certainly havent watched it for about the last 10 years. And why, why on gods earth, did they select jamiroqua (?) as one of the nineties tunes?????
And why didnt they play the interesting stuff that happened (though they did have Kurt singing funny!) like the eels playing toy instruments and stuff, or people playing eggs? Thats what made TOTP interesting, not having the spice girls on or whatever, tunes are allways going to be big, TOTP had its own certain place which the final show seemed to completely ignore.
And also, i sooo wish i had seen John Peel presenting, that clip with him on about Orville the duck....great!
that was cool
was the 70s montage. The Who kicking seven shades out of Won't Get Fooled Again, Tiger Feet by Mud with their roadies doing that thumbs in the belt loops dance, John Lennon doing Instant Karma with Yoko sitting in the background with a blindfold on. At least they showed Starman in full, seeing as how most of the British punk (and post-punk) scene said that that performance was a life changing moment for them.
i want bbc4 to do an alternative version with all the actually brilliant bits...like symposium crowd surf, pulp 'i hate wet wet wet', sebadoh flame...things that made it good!!!!!
was on the french news today !
