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.

Was it worth it?
- No mate, that would be on a 1991 show if they had bothered to promote it.

Their last studio performance until Can You Forgive Her?, although Neil appears in 1992 with Electronic.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... s-29111990

Actually they won't be appearing very much more on the TOTP repeats - only Can You Forgive Her?, Liberation, Paninaro 95, A Red Letter Day and Somewhere (kind of) were studio performances up to Nightlife. I assume that was partly because TOTP started to insist on acts performing live in the early 90s (I think Neil is singing live with Electronic) and also because they couldn't be arsed to promote Bilingual.
