Quote from: wrec on May 16, 2022, 12:10:55 AMQuestion: I've listened to most episodes but haven't come across the origin of "seven days jankers". What's that all about?
Quote from: jamiefairlie on May 16, 2022, 03:27:10 AMvery early one, Stubbs grandfather was in the forces and the punishment for even minor infractions was seven days jankers. Can't remember what jankers actually was but some kind of unpleasantness anyway.

Quote from: non capisco on May 15, 2022, 09:06:12 PMJust because they're my favourite band I'd like to hear what they have to say about XTC. 'Sgt. Rock' is probably their best TOTP performance and that's one of the more controversial songs in their catalogue so enough to chew on there.
Quote from: Das Reboot on May 16, 2022, 07:59:47 PMPrimal ScreamI say this as a huge fan of Vanishing Point and Xtrmntr, but fully aware that Gillespie is a colossal megatwat and would relish Kulkarni venting like he did with Oasis.Speaking of Oasis, would like to hear what Taylor has to say about them.Also, I've totally lost track if they've actually covered New Order or it's just been a cumulative series of proxy coatdowns referring to that performance (plus the Q&A episode).

Quote from: bigfatheart on May 15, 2022, 09:27:25 PMUnlikely because their coverage of 90s Top of the Pops is minimal, but after hearing Neil praise the Wildhearts in passing I'd quite like to hear them covered.
Quote from: bigfatheart on May 17, 2022, 05:59:35 PMFunnily, the two that spring to mind for me (alongside Caffeine Bomb) are Geordie in Wonderland with yer man from Wolfsbane in a Newcastle kit and Kiss make-up, and Sick of Drugs with "And if you'd like to hear the rest of the song, go and buy the single". Which goes to show that for a band who didn't do Top of the Pops loads, they put in a lot of memorable appearances. I suspect they wouldn't be up Al's street, but they'd definitely appeal to the side of him that's looking for what the kids'd be talking about in the playground the next day.

Quote from: prelektric on May 21, 2022, 09:11:31 AMWere any of these on TOTP over the years? You might be waiting a long time otherwise! No doubt you're about to slap me down with facts and stuff - I'd deserve it
Quote from: George White on May 21, 2022, 11:44:15 AMDolan's in a 77 ep with Blackburn. (and some Sixenties ones - but they're wiped/have Jim'll).Iris Wiliams was on one of the 79 ones BBC4 showed, ditto with the Chanter Sisters (Sideshow).
