Went to Countdown, saw Plastic Bertrand. Then went to a party in Prahran (Bronwyn’s). Cheryl and I had our bags stolen or something. YUK!
[The next day: Sue R had our bags.]
I was very lucky to live in Melbourne, where Countdown was filmed. Thanks to this Australian version of Tops of the Pops, I was able to often go along and sometimes get in to a taping of the show without a (precious) ticket. Saw and met many bands this way. A few that come immediately to mind: The Police, Julian Cope, Simple Minds, The Cure (of course), Skyhooks, The Sports, Dragon, The Angels, The Reels, The Aliens, Kate Bush and Boomtown Rats.
