One of favourite CMP moments was in a recent ep when they were discussing the unfitness of old school footballers. Al mentions he met either the Scotland squad manager or a player and asked him if ever thought the team had a chance of getting to the finals. It’s the way Al recounts the brutally candid and matter of fact reply.

 “No.”

(new page chirpy chirpy cheep cheep by the jay boys)

david stubbs mentioned a reggae version of slade's cum on feel the noize on that last ep - al got as excited as i did at the prospect of it -i've tried googling, no luck, it's not on the video playlist - anyone know what he was talking about or was it misremembered bollocks?

There is a reggae cover of 'Mama We're All Crazee Now' by Denzil Dennis, maybe it was that?

Watching BBC coverage of the Super Bowl.  They have something called the 'Romo Report'.

All quiet on the CM front - is this the longest gap between episodes yet?  Hope all is well at Al Towers.

Keep refreshing the Twitter to see if Bates is flying past on his broomstick to no avail.  Maybe this post will tempt fate...

I think January is usually a fallow month as December contains two.  I was re-listening to the Christmas epic until a couple of weeks ago so it doesn't seem long since we heard from them.

Both Al and Pricey have alluded to it coming soon when asked on Twitter, so I would expect the next one to come in a week or two's time

Al's linked to the Legs & Co routine to 'Hooked On Classics' on Facebook today so I'm gonna guess that episode from July '81. Which would possibly mean a coatdown for Bill Wyman's 'Si Si, Je Suis Un Rock Star'.

Also hosted by Steve Wright in the afternoon, one of the hosts they've not covered much, comparative to how often they hosted.

Worth noting that episode also has Depeche Mode and Comrade Shakey, both of whom they've covered a fair few times. Not that I'm complaining with the latter, I don't think the well will ever run dry with him.

This may be the reason why they posted that.

I don't have the episode list to hand but that beaster was high in the charts in a recent-ish episode and I was gutted it didn't feature.

Pretty sure that was the episode which Neil chose with Rolling Stones, Soft Cell, Cliff etc on it. Looking at the running order of that episode it's nearly all acts that they've done at least a few times before, including in the previous 81 editions covered, so not as sure about that one

I think Al also referred to the Eighventies era as the "silver age" in one of the other shows, so I was kind of assuming we'd be getting one of the few viable early TOTPs that are available - either are fine though.

Ah yes, makes sense. Should be early to mid 70s then, don't think we've had one of those in quite a while.

Coatdown Bill's agenda but not the record. I bloody love it!

That's it.  There was an allusion to Bill at the start but TOTP had gone with the Start Me Up video instead of Bill and his fingers that were possibly illegally sticky.

The last great Stones single so who can question that judgment.  The video is brilliant and fascinating by the way, but I've tried to work out what's so off about it (lighting, perspective, the direction that allows Wood and Richards to loom in and dominate the shot out of nowhere?) with no satisfactory answer.

The TOTP performance of Je Suis un Rock Star itself is odd - they must've recorded two separate takes, as in some shots Wyman's brandishing a guitar but others have him hunched over at a Moog with completely different lighting. Can't think of any other times they cut two performances together?

It also looks like it was shown a second time on the 13/08/81 show, where Simon Bates is later accidentally recorded getting down to Shaky on the studio projector screen as if he's some sort of Big Brother dictator figure (see below gif). God knows what would be made of that on CMP

^ I've always wanted them to cover that, it's one of my favourite TOTP moments. Laughed like a drain when I first saw it on the repeats. He's up on the screen clapping and looking like a dick for what seems like ages.

They did it a few times in the 70s I think. Hot Chocolate doing 'No Doubt About It', a completely sincere top 10 hit about the band encountering what they believed to be a UFO, is made up of two different takes where the audience keep disappearing and reappearing. There's definitely a Showaddywaddy one where they change costumes in-performance as well.

And of course the St Sanders "shreds" version is legendary:

That song is something of a blind spot for me.  Sounds like Joe Cornish doing Songwars.

I dig the fat, squelchy Moog bassline, but yeah, it sounds exactly like what it is: a tossed-off trifle from the most boring member of The Rolling Stones.
