8 Comments:

  1. Did they show the Jane Gazzo/Dandy Warhols interview. I always thought she was hopeless, but I missed that interview. The Jarvis Cocker interactions were pretty bad.

  2. umm

    This is actually a pretty standard play list for rage when they have a throwback.
    These clips have been played on Rage for years now. They have been airing flashbacks of The Factory, Recovery, Flashez, Beatbox for years now, I don’t think they have ever even stopped the Recovery re-runs, (considering how horrible a show it was)

  3. If only they could pull out God doing My Pal from The Factory (1988), they have had it before but alas I missed it that night, would love to get a good copy of it with the Late Great Tim Hemensley in full flight, maybe again one day.

  4. knoxoverstreet

    Can live without Recovery & The Factory both are extremely meh.
    But on the plus side we get seven x Flashez & some awesome sounding Countdown promos!!! I’ve been lamenting the lack of Flashez clips for the last few weeks and we’re finally getting some..
    Only one Countdown which is a little disappointing but according to the Rage moderator we’re getting a few next week!

  5. Haha, you beat me to it PT Ryan 🙂 Finally I can get a gopd capture of that, along with the uncomfortable banter between Jane Gazzo and Jarvis Cocker 🙂
