LOL, Thank God I'm too young to remember Hot Gossip (just about). But I do remember the Kenny Everett show, I loved him, I thought he was great. (and I do know Starship Trouper of course :rolleyes: )

Whenever those nostalgia shows are on, they always show clips of Pans People or Legs 'n' co..... and I think thank God I missed them on top of the pops.... anybody know what year TOTP stopped those crap dancers? because I don't remember them on it at all!

Did you ever see them (Hot Gossip) on Tiswas doing the Human League's "Circus of Death" ? I have it on video somewhere or other.

That was absolutely diabolical.Never knew it existed. Never want to see it again.

With regard the question about when TOTP stopped using such dance troupes. After Pans People and Legs and Co, TOTP used another group of dancers called Zoo. I think they started on the show around '82 and I think they only lasted a year or two.

Didn't TOTP stop using dance troupes largely when video kicked in big time? I always thought that TOPT used the dancers when a band weren't available to appear live (miming, but with the emergence of video of course it was then easy to get around, hence the slow decline.. mwahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa!

Yeah, I remember I used to watch Top of the pops religiously EVERY week, even as an infant.... my mum was seriously into her music! LOL
But I can't remember the dancers.... maybe i'd go and play with my toys or something at that point, must have found it too boring! (if they were still around) I think you're right SlowMo' re: the video thing. I was quite surprised when Andy said there was another dance troup from 1982 for another 2 or 3 years.... that would have taken me up to 4 years old, there's no way i wouldn't have noticed them..... they must have just bored me rigid, as I just don't rememebr them! LOL :rolleyes: biglaugh

Not sure of the years they appeared but its right Zoo were the third dance act to pad out the programme in the '80s. They tried a more modern style with I think male dancers too, but as you say helen you were too young to notice. laugh

I remember those dance troupes: Pan's People, followed by Legs & Co! They used to do very literal dance routines, acting out the lyrics and so on... eek

Wern't the two who became Dollar in Hot Gossip?

Thanks for confirming. Therese later went onto more shame by doing backing vocals on 'Noise Noise' a Gary Numan B-side. bemused

Noise Noise is one of Numan's more popular b sides as it goes - he played it live for a few years

Hot Gossip's version of Circus of Death was actually produced by Marsh and Ware of BEF/The Human League. Sound wise its pretty good - but again the vocals aren't...exactly...up to par.

I quite like the Noise Noise studio B-side too, but i always think of that whole 'middle years albums' and 'lost years' etc. The live versions from the '93 to '95 'ish tours have more substance.

Wasn't 'Noise Noise' the b-side of 'Music For Chameleons' back in '82, with the bonus track on the 12" being 'Bridge What Bridge' that also featured 'Dollar' and their rather silly puking noises. It was also a bonus track on the 'I,Assassin' cd. Aye, I remember it first being played live around 1993, on the 'Machine And Soul' Tour. York Barbican Centre...say no more.

Not my fave Numan b-side though. There's always 'We Are So Fragile' and his best b-side to date which was 'The Image Is' b-side of 'We Take Mystery'
Saxophone at it's very best cool
As for listening to Numan's other b-sides......I'd rather go for an Injunz with Jade Goody shock

Yep, thats it exactly. The b-side to 'Chameleons' from '82, and I think that was the first or second gig of the '93 'Dream Corrosion' tour.

Jesper. You should Hear the boots of Noise Noise, power is not the word.

Quite awful! I've never seen that before and I don't care if I don't see it again. The female backing vox are sooooooo flat.

It's just irredeemably naff too. Circus Of Death? Jesus wept!
