    Here’s the Jam doing A Town Called Malice on TotP. Weller was so sick of the Jam by this point that he could barely be bothered to move his lips.

      The irony of course being that this would end up being his high water mark. I only remember Style Council now because at the time I had a girlfriend who was a big fan…

      From the same era, the Finn brothers made all their bank off of Crowded House, but I wouldn’t be surprised if historians only associate them with Split Enz…Report

    1) I have obviously heard the song, but I couldn’t have told you it was Matthew Wilder who performed it if my life depended on it. I literally never heard of Wilder before.

    2) It turns out that Wilder is pretty much a one-hit-wonder, since his other “hit” only reached 33 on the chart, while the song in the video reached 5.

    3) Wilder’s birth name is Matthew Weiner, which is the same last name that Michael Savage has.Report
