Top of the pops………….in the 70's.
Very young would be Alvin Stardust, Mud, T.Rex, Sweet
Then when older and really into music Stranglers, Blondie, PIL, Department S, Martha and the Muffins, Smiths anytime when John Peel was hosting.
TOTP provided about one track a month I wanted to see it was essential viewing but now you realise it was awful 😆Posted 6 years ago
I really like Dr Feelgood now, but I don’t recall them as a kid, probably got them mixed up with Dr Hook. Like Pigface, I vaguely recall a period where Punk bands were charting, but you were lucky to see anything on TOTPs. I recall it being a bit special to see them, I was barely in my teens tho, so maybe wrong. I really miss all that.Posted 6 years ago
Indeed there was- an uncle bunt chop IIRC. i will google it
TJ, I had a quick look on youtube, but didn’t find anything. I thought it was ‘my gang’ which would be the obvious, but that track appears to be 1970, which would make me 3-4 yo and unlikely to recall. I’m thinking it was more like 73-74, when I was around 6 yo, unless ‘my gang’ was released or my memory is a bit confused.Posted 6 years ago
Bob is doing an OGWT series on R2, I listened to it last night. Was interesting to hear him talk on how they tried to get a balance (and stay relevant) in the late 70s, between old long haired hippies and new Punks. At some point they dropped the ‘Old Grey’ to try and stay relevant, but later accepted it was more than just in the title. They talk about The Tube and other stuff coming in and filling the gap.Posted 6 years ago
