Fantastic mate, great shit all round.

Still can't top V13 from Bradford 88, that is my single favourite BAD performance.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Just little things but I love the way Don sings 'vasectomy' at 1:19; the little guitar string scrape at 2:56 and at 4:39 "Mick Jones don't drop his pants now" (with grin)

Only wish there was more than the three numbers from Night Network.

Is there not four? Stone Thames, BAD, Hollywood Boulevard and E=mc2?

I watched this clip again the other night and it really is great. BAD were on fire in 87/88, it's a shame they never bottled that on record.

Yes mate sorry four songs. Shame they didn't record a whole gig. I remember sitting up all night to record those on VHS.

I can't remember Meltdown or Night Network, must have been a Southern thing. I used to scour the tv listings for anything BAD-related back in the day. Thank God for the internet!

Yeah I think the two shows were only shown via the London and Southern TV stations at the time.

That first appearance on The Tube was life affirming.

My VHS recording of Night Network used to cut in after a snippet of an interview with the snooker player Jimmy White. Though entirely accidental, the appropriation was in itself almost BAD-esqe!

I always thought it strange that they did three numbers off the first album, and only one off the second. Not that I'd change it, of course.
