10th February

1983: Depeche Mode were still trying to find their exact place in pop's scheme of things. Dave Gahan looks like a wide eyed Scottish post-punk graduate, Vince Clark like a My First Nick Rhodes. That set must have upped the lighting bill considerably for no good reason. You couldn't even scale it.

1994: Before they went on for their TOTP debut Steve Lamacq, co-owner of their label, told Elastica's Justine Frischmann to give the camera plenty of eye contact, which is why she spends part of the appearance looking quite psychotic. 2:11 - that can't be a coincidence.

Suede were on the same episode doing 'Stay Together' in a then-rare pre-release performance. Not sure how they arranged the dressing rooms.
