Found out that Steve Rinella (Meat Eater) has a podcast. Episodes are 120+ min apiece. He’s a good interviewer too.

A saving grace of the internet is that it spares a great performance like the first one here from being lost to time. I mean does anyone even remember this series that competed with SNL for three years?

The Jam “Private Hell” (1979) [Live for the ABC series Fridays 11/7/1980]



The Jam “To Be Someone (Didn’t we have a nice time)” (1978) [Live]



The Jam “Saturday’s Kids” (1979) [John Peel session]

Critics and other musicians praised them but they never got that big breakthrough that was always "just around the corner".
RIP Michael Been, sad story how he died at a festival site in Belgium while working as soundman for his son's band BRMC.

The Call "The Walls Came Down" (1983)

This song popped into my mind. Pat Benatar sings the song at a tribute for Harry after his death in a car accident. There is a better quality version but it does not include the story of Pat and Harry; before Pat was a rock star.

The tribute was on PBS and I don't believe it ever re-aired.

The story goes that this the original version of “Pretty In Pink” was the favorite song of Molly Ringwald at the time and she asked John Hughes to write a film based on it. Which Hughes did and The Furs were asked to re-record the song for the soundtrack.

Well according to this excerpt from a 2010 interview Richard and Tim Butler never really understood why Hughes wanted the song re-recorded and they note that, while Molly Ringwald might have looked pretty in pink outfits, Hughes completely missed the point of the song as written by Richard Butler.


Richard Butler - “The idea of the song was, 'Pretty In Pink' as a metaphor for being naked. The song, to me, was actually about a girl who sleeps around a lot and thinks that she's wanted and in demand and clever and beautiful, but people are talking about her behind her back. That was the idea of the song. And John Hughes, bless his late heart, took it completely literally and completely overrode the metaphor altogether! I still like the song.”
