Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

Friday 27th Feb:-

Not a startling line-up this evening, aside from 1 documentary; setting my recorder for this one.

21:00 - 22:35 - Joy Division.
On June 4 1976, four young men from ruined, post-industrial Manchester went to see a Sex Pistols show at the Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall. Inspired by the gig that is now credited with igniting the Manchester music scene, they formed what was to become one of the world's most influential bands, Joy Division.

Over thirty years later, despite a tragedy that was to cut them off in their prime, they are enjoying a larger audience and more influence than ever before, with a profound legacy that resonates fiercely in today's heavily manufactured pop culture.

Featuring the unprecedented participation of all the surviving band members, this film examines the band's story through never-before-seen live performance footage, personal photos, period films and newly discovered audiotapes.

A fresh visual account of a unique time and place, this is the untold story of how four men transcended economic and cultural barriers to produce an enduring musical legacy, at a time of great social and political change.

Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

Thanks for the update Mike, however, you seem to have missed a treat for this coming Friday, 24th April.

21.00 Rock legend and tour bus aficionado Rick Wakeman takes us on a time-travelling trip through the decades in this first-hand account of rockers on the road from the late 1950s to the 80s and beyond.

22.00 Totally British: 70s Rock 'n' Roll - Part 1 1970-1974 Trawled from the depths of the BBC Archive and classic BBC shows of the day, a collection of performance gems from a totally rock 'n' roll early 1970s. Enjoy some Free, Quo, Humble Pie, Mott The Hoople, Faces, Stone the Crows (a personal fave), SAHB, Lizzy to name but a few. Should definitely be one to set the recorder for.

23.00 Totally British: 70s Rock 'n' Roll - Part 2 1975-1979 More of the same with the Feelgoods, Ducks DeLuxe, Eddie and the Hot Rods, Elvis Costello, Meal Ticket, Steve Gibbons Band, Dave Edmunds and chum Nick Lowe, a pre-Mike & the Mechanics' Paul Carrack in his first band Ace, a post-Faces Ronnie Lane, the Motors, the first TV performance from Dire Straits, Graham Parker and the Rumour and many more.

00.00 70s Gold on The Old Grey Whistle Test with Elton John, Lindisfarne, David Bowie, Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Steppenwolf, Vinegar Joe, Brinsley Schwarz, New York Dolls, Argent, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Captain Beefheart, Johnny Winter, Dr Feelgood, Gil Scott Heron, Patti Smith, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Cher & Greg Allman, Talking Heads, the Jam, Blondie, Iggy Pop and the Specials.

A pretty eclectic bunch and I'm particularly looking forward to seeing a young Tom Petty and a band I saw in the back room of a local pub back in my youth, Vinegar Joe. A great little band with the late Robert Palmer and Elkie Brooks on joint lead vocals. What a fantastic rock voice Elkie had before she went back to a more jazzy repertoire and MOR material. The rock world lost a superb band when they split but I guess the singers were just too big for the rest of the group.

Ars Longa, Vita Brevis
