Inspired by Butcher Boy's neat trick of being supported by a screening of a TOTP episode from 1983 featuring performances from Altered Images and Orange Juice, I ask you: what, pray tell, are your favourite TOTP moments?
Mine is - steady yourselves - a life-changing one. The Exploited doing "Dead Cities". Before that evening I was a fledgling metaller. I liked Thin Lizzy, and was doing my best to be excited by Rainbow, but with mixed success. Afterwards I was a committed punk fan, buzzing to the point of short-circuiting. My life was ruined in an instant. I had never seen anything like it in my short, twelve year old life, and it was the single most exciting, energising thing I'd ever experienced. I just remember running out of the room shouting "Dead Cities! Dead Cities!" That was it. I was a goner.http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseacti...&videoid=834544
