Gott love The Smiths doing a 'live' performance without mics.... ha ha.

I say, bring back Solid Gold! Now that was real talent show. Nobody could shake it like the Solid Gold Dancers.

Another classic with PIL performing Death Disco. They better hurry up and get Art Brut on there before the show is done.
