Possibly the goldenest oldie in the punk video timeline
31 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been trying to get a copy of the original video series for years. The Max Headroom show had indy and punk classics from Siouxsie and the banshees to King kurt. This was simply a classic, to be distinguished from the TV series which was simply OK. Although at time's Max's stutter could prove irritating in the extreme. His jokes may have left a permanent scar on my psyche and perhaps shaped my poor sense of humour to the present day. The Max headroom Show remains an iconic memory of the early punk and psycho-billy era. Why has channel four not dug out this classic video footage and re-released this gem? In the current climate of Tube nostalgia lets please see the resurrection of this great piece of music video nostalgia. The whole series please. Right now!
