The Numbers - Modern Song

They played this on the telly last night. Early 80s Oz band The Numbers doing Modern Song. I haven't seen it for years.
It spurred me on to look them up on the net and to my surprise they have a myspace page with this and a load of other videos.
Visit them here.


A Career in Ranking

Smash Hits brings us an excellent interview with The Beat from about 1981.
It covers their time with Two Tone records and the beginnings of their G0-Feet label.

Pogo in Togo!

A good bit of German punk for the weekend - The United Balls doing Pogo in Togo.
I remember seeing a film clip on Countdown with a couple of elephants dancing in the background many years ago.


Exploit Yourself

A scathing report on The Exploited, Anti Pasti and Vice Squad gig at The Lyceum back in 1981.

Special Irish Beat

The Specials and The Beat play three charity gigs in Ireland in aid of Carri Mello, The Anti-Nuke Campaign and local Charities.


Jimmy and the Boys Last 69'er

The Poster for the live gig at the Bondi Lifesavers Club read "Jimmy and the Boys Last 69'er"
Well it wasn't the Last 69'er after all (there were many more), but it did draw the crowds.

About 1981.

Fresh Punk and Rotting Vegetables

The Dead Kennedys release Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables in the U.K. way back in 1980 so The New Musical Express gives us a rundown on the band and the new wave of U.S. punk rock.
