Video-to-digital transfer of the london Wekend Television punk special broadcast on 16 January 1978. Centred around a one-off gig at a London pub, it features live performances by X-Ray Spex, John Cooper Clarke, punk comedian Johnny Rubbish, and Ian Dury. The show takes a more measured view of punk now that the dust had settled, and looks to its future. The limitations of the VCD format mean that only tracks 1,4,6,10,11,14,17 & 20 are directly navigable. Apart from Johnny Rubbish, all the artists featured have produced memorable work, and have endured in some measure of popularity, which makes for an interesting and enjoyable televisual experience...

Oh yeah, this is good stuff.

Thirty years on, there's a bit of a rosy-tinted spectacles view of punk. Scores of people who hated it at the time, because it was attacking and diminishing their prog rock heroes, now claim to be great fans of (insert name of band) and babble endlessly about the impact the music had.

The bands reform - most noticeably the Pistols - and play stadium gigs with diamond screens; and foreign tourists still come to London and buy postcards of punks with green mohicans.

This VCD captures much much more of what it was really like. The concert footage is recorded in the Hope and Anchor - basically a pub painted black with graffitti on the wall. There's no stage as such, so the crowd wander on and join in.

Johnny Rubbish is just dire. Well many many punk acts were. From here you think of bad punk and stop, probably, with the Lurkers, but they at least got a contract.

The focus of the VCD isn't really JCC (but he's big player on it) but X-Ray Spex. Given that they only played around three dozen gigs, any live recording is like rocking-horse shit, so video footage is like gold.

It's simple, dirty music, but played with real passion. The crowd aren't all cartoon punks, but just ordinary teenagers, gurning at the camera, in leather jackets. There's some pogo-ing, but most don't know how, and the gobbing is reserved - deservedly - for Johnny Rubbish.

A dingy pub with loud brash youths and grinding guitars. No lights show (hardly any lights), no security, no merchandise.

Get a breath of reality and GET this VCD!
