This short-lived late-night TV music series (7 episodes) aired in summer 1978 and featured a range of bands interspersed with pre-recorded links by Peter Cook, these being projected on a large overhead screen above the studio audience. The setup was supposedly a rundown club having hit hard times, with Cook playing the disapproving, sneering host deliberately trying to antagonise everyone on set. He needn't have bothered pretending. Pretty awful, but worth a few stars if only for getting such a bizarre idea past the pitch stage, plus of course the UK punk bands (Ian Dury, X Ray Spex, Buzzcocks, Siouxsie & The Banshees etc) had not done a lot of TV at this time and are worth seeing. Made by ATV, and produced by pop impresario Mickie Most, of all people.
