    Fun to hear Jancie spoiling the charts there... "oh no, it's not a new number one, it's Nick Berry"

    I have no memory of this at all...seemed to be rocking a Bowie c.72 hairdo, brave in 1986. Was this from a TV show or something?

    Oh God, Catherine Stock just standing there looking awkward during the guitar solo :D . All the stage presence of a CUPBOARD.

    The song was written by "Les Vandyke", a not-exactly subtle alias for her husband John Worsley. He also wrote for Marty Wilde. and his missus was on the same programme as Kim Wilde.

    SPOOKY

    Never realised how close Status Quo got to being #1 with "In The Army Now". Just as well, it was utter shit.

    Oh fuck off Bon Jovi - the start of decades of fucking torture. One of the worst records in the history of everything ever.

    I'm ashamed to admit I really liked this Red Box tune at the time. And I understand why, I'm just glad I've changed a lot since then.

    John Peel's utter disdain for them was hilarious.

    With that and Janice's increasing penchant for a stinging dig, it just makes it more of a shame that there can't be many episodes with them both left.

    "Notorious" is OK. It's no "Election Day" but it's OK.

    I like Duran Duran, but I fucking LOVE the "Notorious" album itself. It's BRILLIANT!

    And "Skin Trade" is the highlight, true...

    Yeah, "Skin Trade" is better than "Notorious" for sure...

    "The Final Countdown" really is as camp as Amanda Lear's tits, isn't it?

    Did we know Catherine Stock is the sister of "Who's Leaving Who" hitmaker Mike Stock, by the way?

    "Simple Minds with the most exciting video I've seen since...ooh...teatime. Mind you I had a late tea".

    God bless you John Peel.

    Oh, they all hated each other...they took 18 months to make a really mediocre record and it sold poorly, thus finishing them.

    I have a wee softspot for "Watching The Wildlife" tho'

    His dancing style was certainly very crotch leading.

    Still, he did later manage to come up with the evergreen I Promised Myself, so good on him for that.

    Janice and Steve Wright can't stand each other.
