Crap, you're right. I actually went straight on Spotify and started playing Loose Fit. Twenty-odd years on and that consumption still has repercussions. :wall:

On “The Story of 1990” they showed a previously unbroadcast Liza Minelli performing Love Pains. As it stalled at 41, it never got on the show.

It's basically some battle-worn music jornos dissecting, at length, old Top of the Pops episodes. It's profane, insightful, scathing, celebratory and very entertaining. They've yet to cover a PSB episode (though their Blur remix has been given a passing nod of appreciation), but an appearance is bound to crop up soon....
The latest episode is from May 1988, just after Heart was number one.
