They were still largely unknown in America when this was broadcast, but hyped in the U.K.

we talked talked about this coming on for a week and totally delivered.

'Kramer' from Seinfield (Micheal Richards) came out of this show, it featured a lot of music acts that you never really heard about outside of Creem magazine and the like.

This, the Clash (snl and Fridays), Billy Idol showing up on American Bandstand after Gen X broke up and the EP came out and PIL on American Bandstand are some really great memorable moments.

American TV was Lionel Richie at the time, anything out of the ordinary was big deal (like the punk episode of Quincy.....)

You run an amazing blog and thank you for doing it!
