Hey Ya Everyone... Razzer

Aw! Sorry you lot missed it, Eeker
But it was kinda cool to see coz i don't remember it first time around (I was only small)! Confused

Crowded House were playing live on TOTP, and sounded great with Neil singing in the centre, Paul raised up at the back on the drum kit, Nic to the right and Mark on the left playing piano! Big Grin

They were 3rd up on the lineup on Tuesday, and the performance was Crowded House - "Fall At Your Feet" from the 7th of November 1991. Cool

Okay hope that helps...

Hmmmm, let's see in 1991...
I was 8 years old!

That's pretty small, but I was almost 5 foot by then - so I wasn't scarily too small!?! Big Grin
But I had sophisticated tastes even then compared to the kids my age.

ayisha that is indeed sophistication at the highest level, listening to crowded house at 8.

when i was 8 i think i was in awe of stuff like 'puff the magic dragon' and 'octopusses garden'.

in my defence however two years later i was into marc bolan, elo and elton john.
I saw it, and what a crappy show... CH was good, but the announcer with his annoying voice spoke through the beginning & the end, and I think the end was cut off. And half of the show were "artists" that would lip-sync. There was even one when all you saw were "dancers" and no one singing or playing any instrument Confused And what was up with the ugly visual effects in the Clapton/Elton John performance?

Luckily CH saved the show Smiler
Man I cannot believe that I missed that one. I think my brothers (one of them is also strangely the age Ayisha was when it was first on!) may have even watched the program and I walked through the front room unaware that the probable highlight of the week was on!!! Damn pity.

Does anyone know of any other highlights coming up in the future?

Cheers

'Can you imagine that
An itch too sensitive to scratch
The light that falls through the cracks
An insect too delicate to catch?
I hear the endless murmur
Every blade of grass that shivers in the breeze
And the sound, it comes to carry me
Across the land and over the sea�
I didn't see the clip of Fall At Your Feet on TOTP2, but I'm certain that I saw it on the original broadcast back in 1991.

Bit of trivia: If I remember correctly, Neil spoke into the mike just before starting the song and said "It's Grim Down South". It was a reference to the band who were performing immediately before them (The KLF, singing 'It's Grim Up North'). Neil later admitted in interviews that he was a fan.

Well, thank you! Big Grin

I just was always into retro stuff, here years later - nothing's changed! Though, I copped alot of crap for it from other kids.

But Marc Bolan, ELO and Elton John are cool, so you were into some good stuff too - we all improve with age! Wink

And to Toet...
That's just the way TOTP2 is, it's a real mixed-up bag of clips! And the announcer Steve Wright just loves to make stupid jokes over performances, it's just the nature of the beast!

Can't believe I missed it - I knew it was on as well. Such a klutz. I really wanted to see that again because the original broadcast was THE MOMENT when I reawakened my love of this band. Prior to that I'd kind of forgotten about them (DDIO being the only hit they'd had here).

I just was channel hopping that night and flicked over to the Beeb and there they were. Real as anything, singing a genuine hit on a genuine hit programme. Suddenly my life wasn't the same any more Smiler

And what a song to return with... A few weeks later I knew the album BACKWARDS (my then-girlfriend knew all the songs even before she'd heard the album! I just kept singin' em) and was off to watch the most amazing gig I'd ever seen.

Can't believe I forgot TOTP2 was on... *doh*
did crowded house ever appear on 'the tube', the fabulous music programme shown on channel 4 in the '80's or did they come along after it's demise?

they've been on jools hollands''later' a few times i know.

wouldn't it be great if someone could pull all these performances together and put them all in a six disc dvd package and flog it for �24.99.

it would wouldn't it, eh, eh, anybody, anybody, eh, eh, anybody......
Got Jools Holland appearance, interview and 2 or three songs including TA class stuff. Includes Jools embarrassing Neil with the Split Enz appearance on TOTP singing I Got You. Neil nearly digs himself a whole. Talks a bit about how bands have only a short shelflife and few go beyond it successfully apart from REM and U2. That was the beginning of the end I guess Frowner

i think i've got that show on tape somewhere myself. it must be from the summer of 1994 i think. i'd been to see them live at the whitley bay ice rink a few weeks earlier when they appeared with the maori choir.

fabulous show, paul had left by then. were you there tonguetied? i remember being so hot and thirsty afterwards that i drunk a pint of lager in record time, then a second one pretty quickly too. great night that.
