7th November

1985: Another ostentatious long scarf from Steve Wright and another bunch of funny foreigners dropping in for a debut, A-ha. Mags seems to have either lost the use of one hand or can only use both if he needs Morten's help for a third part.

1991: In the midst of the KLF's success Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty revived the Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu name for something very un-Stadium House. Obviously being Drummond and Cauty they had to do something big for the TOTP appearance and so it was that, with Drummond given a peace offering of a keyboard, Cauty hooded with bass and a slogan blown up at the back, morris dancers filled in the gaps. Seems obvious, somehow.

1997: Imagine how much shredded paper went into building a set for Natalie Imbruglia. Jarvis Cocker famously tired of Britpop ubiquity, so when Pulp returned to the charts he began dressing as Frank Butcher.
