In the 1980s, C4 brought us The Tube. Presenters were raw, unrehearsed and linked to bands from inexplicable scaffold gantries. Swearing was considered very naughty (especially if done by presenter Jools Holland during a pre-watershed live trailer), alternative comedians were the new gods and the audience's hairspray consumption was burning its way through the ozone layer at a rapid rate. There was no better show to eat your tea to.
A classic noisy, raucous, anarchic episode of what was, in its day, 'the world's greatest rock show.' Presented by Jools Holland, Paula Yates and Muriel Gray.
Featuring Dexy's Midnight Runners, Big Country, Cruella de Ville, The Bank Robbers, 10 past 7, The Undertones, David Bowie and U2.
