Rare Live Footage – Hammersmith Odeon 1984 – ‘Turn Your Back on Me’

March 25, 2012

If you are British and were a fan of pop in the 1980s, chances are that you will have been a Radio 1 listener.  Prior to the revamp of the I.B.A. Broadcasting Act in 1990 and the introduction of local stations onto the VHF band, the station was the pop station and had the monopoly on all things pop in the UK.

The only station to come close was the ‘great 208’ Radio Luxembourg.

The BBC In concert series ran for many years and featured anybody who was anybody in the music business.  Kajagoogoo were recorded twice for this show.  Regular readers will remember our past articles that featured transcription albums of these shows – the 1983 White Feathers Tour show here and the 1984 Islands Tour here.

Today, we bring you more live footage from the 1984 Islands tour.  Now scarce, the clip is lifted from the transcription album originally issued by the BBC back in ’84 – content that has never been re-aired since its original broadcast.

For this article, KajaFax has selected ‘Turn Your Back on Me’…..Enjoy!
