Very rare performance

#1 Post by Nickname »

Well, it has posted on the Youtube section but I wanted to create its own post because it's a quite rare performance. It comes from the show Dance Energy. A dance-funky show from BBC 2. The ambient with all these people dancing around PSB give to the show another feeling. Even Neil has to move a bit more for the performance of this song, at the end ia a show about dance music. I like it.

Looks like they performed a special "TV Edit" of the track that omits the last verse (the 1990s)

The crowd dancing looks far-fetched. Surely Being boring is all but a dance record, isn't it? Looks like as if they sort of knew since it was PSB the track must be another stomper continuing their imperial era so let's dance! But the track was a completely different beast, and so the dance turned out to be boringly pretentious.

i reckon the dancing suited

it's the vibe for the tv show, having people play up to the camera

TOP was like that for a whole before people became self conscious, and then grunge hit

I remember watching this at the time. I should imagine the only reason it happened at all is because the presenter Normski was going out with Janet Street-Porter. She produced the DEF-II yoof TV strand, of which Dance Energy was a part. It was a good show.

It’s the funky drummer James brown loop. You can’t help BUT dance to it. The style of the dancers is the same of that in the Being Boring Video.
