The Psychedelic Furs’ “Dumb Waiters” single came out April 15, 1981. Here’s the original promo video.
Always a favorite. My band, Sixto, used to do a cover and that sax line was wild as a guitar part.
Our Lips Are Sealed (Go-Go's cover)
The Wedding Present
The Wedding Present - Our Lips Are Sealed (Go-Go’s cover)
Two great things that go great together.
The wonderful Raymond Pettibon and OFF!
Comsat Angels’ Waiting for a Miracle album came out September 3, 1980. Here’s the title track.
The first three Comsat’s LPs are amazing.
#630: the clash - bankrobber (1980)
great moments in unexpected expressions of joy from members of the clash:
0:37 - mikey dread, producer and reggae legend, smiling with his tambourine
1:20 - joe strummer, frontman, twirls his bandana around
2:03 - mick jones, guitarist, grins punk rock’s rarest and most likeable grins
2:26 - mikey dread, at the controls, stands up and wobbles his knees to the beat
2:32 - baker and johnny green, clash roadies who co-star in the video as bank robbers, and who during filming were stopped and questioned by south london police officers, celebrate their new bags of money.
Hoping this ups my mood…
