30th April

Slightly different look from now on - instead of attempting to cram everything into a fluid paragraph of text it'll just be year, name, link, comment, onto the next one. Cleaner, clearer and most importantly less work for me. OK?

- The Human League debut the girls, prepare for the hits
- An unfortunately straightforward The Teardrop Explodes
- A pleasingly non-straightforward Tenpole Tudor with the audience catching on eventually
- The Beat finally getting all those people at the back to move in their own times
- Legs & Co's callback to the infamous "most expensive Pan's People outfit ever" for Quincy Jones

- The Jesus & Mary Chain, Jim Reid off in his own world
- Level 42's Mark King keeps forgetting he's got a bass on that requires thrumming

- Launching "Britain's favourite musical mission", Marc Almond, a string quartet and mass clapping completely off the beat
- Sisters Of Mercy, Ofra Haza and heavy laser strobing

- Chicane rope in Tom Jones to add inappropriate big-lunged vocals and dad dancing
- Jamie Cullum and his impromptu jazz percussion falling victim to a lack of miking
- Red Hot Chili Peppers outside TV Centre in the rain. Those people weren't all supposed to be there, one thinks.

Whoa K, where's the Pan's People routine where they're wearing outfits similar to those Legs & Co. are sporting in their treatment of "Ai No Corrida"? As someone in the U.S., I'm a bit amazed at what standards&practices let TOTP get away with. Thanks!
