In the '80s, TV channels went 24 hour and they had to fill them with something that people would watch at 2 a.m. (remember The Hit Man And Her?). One of those things was Rockin' In The UK, before its name was changed to the preferable Transmission. It was indie, but, like, proper, indie: MBV, the Heart-Throbs, Sarah Records: the music was more to my taste than Snub TV, which was mostly Butthole Surfers and Front 242 every week, or even Peel himself, where you'd be falling asleep listening to some jangles and be torn from slumber a few minutes later by Napalm Death or a Beligian hardcore track. Anyway, that's where I first heard this song, which is lovely, all determined drums and hammond and fake trumpets. This should have been a massive hit - they could've given Aztec Camera a run for their money.
