What do you mean lockdown?
He’s being interviewed remotely as if it was lockdown time.
In 1986?
I think Briggy is jesting.
I was going to say, he’s aged well but not THAT well.
Driving his special van has kept him young.

New to me, thanks. Lockdown interview?

I wonder how Reagan and Thatcher would’ve handled COVID-86.

Thatcher would've sold the poor something that they had already paid for. Just to convince them all is OK.

That’s pretty cool. I picture the craftsman putting it together in undamaged form down to the last detail, setting it on the floor and stomping it, and then picking it up and nodding approvingly at his work before boxing it up and moving on to the next one.

Leading off FHTE with Complete Control and using as the lead single/video is one of the few great choices the band/record label/management has made post breakup. CC is relatively obscure in the US (obviously not in the UK) and this version is just so so good. There are some very obvious wrong chords and off key vocals, but they leave them in, mixed loudly and it's perfect.

Also, I love how you can tell how fired up Topper is throughout. His bass drum gets so busy at the end and that's a real give away as a drummer that he's feeling it.

That version is still my favourite piece of music by anyone, ever. I remember when it debuted on UK tv on TOTP 2 and they'd shown a visual teaser at the start of the show. Because it was the clip from Rude Boy I expected it to just be that performance from the film. They were eventually on right at the end and this clip just blew me away. Yes, there's mistakes in it but the combination of attitude, energy and melody just sends shivers down the spine every time. The visuals are fucking great and just sum up what a cool as fuck band they were.

Like you, I love it when that bass drum starts slamming at the end. I think I've mentioned it before but if you listen on headphones, Mick's backing vocals go from speaker to speaker as he must be dashing across the stage to join Paul at the mic. Joe's final "This is punk rockers" is one of the most glorious noises I have ever heard coming from a human. Shit, I could talk about this performance all night.
