THE VIBRATORS - Live on 'Revolver' in 1978
Today’s musical offering is another Vibrators recording. Only one track; Judy Says (Knock You In The Head), performed live on ITV's short lived music show Revolver, which was introduced by the legendary comedian Peter Cook. This is what the British Film Industry website says about the show.
“Revolver‘s most innovative element was designed to evoke the confrontational atmosphere associated with punk gigs. Peter Cook was invited to guest on the programme on the strength of the notorious Derek and Clive recordings, which shared with punk a kind of adolescent, deliberately puerile nihilism. In the guise of the seedy manager of the rundown nightclub rented out to the TV company, Cook would appear on a video screen, sneering at the acts and antagonising the studio audience.”
Here are The Vibrators giving it some punk rock attitude on Revolver sometime between July – Sept 1978. Enjoy!
