nice one, first time that its appeared on youtube
I've never listened to this band - that was bloody great.
and the audio is out of synch with the visual.
the best totp performance ever. Quite why Flame didn't jump into the top 10 and the nation didn't clothe itself in lilac polo neck jumpers after that I'll never know.
That Gay Dad song thats after is fucking terrible!
Every piece of historical video footage ever has now been uploaded and anything added now is just a rolling archive of people's mobile phone clips from the past few days.
Glad it finally surfaced
The Offspring were number 1 that week and Melody Maker declared it "the week Top of the Pops went indie"
Or: it was January so there wasn't much new stuff out.
although it was performing Tequila...
All time classic episode of TOTP
I think I listened to this song about 16 times a day for about 6 months solid that year. Then bought the album and did the same with the EVEN LONGER version.
must be the most influential piece of music of all time.
Flame, that Shins song, the end of Love Will Tear Us Apart...
The guy who was in charge of TOTP being quoted in the NME that he wanted to put Mogwai on there & start featuring unsigned bands, I imagine that never happened...
And Menswear were the first band to appear without having released a record.
Gay Dad, with one of my band mates on guitar.
picture you checking youtube every day for this.
or at least having it as one of your 'google alerts'. :-)
I messaged them. No reply.
