I love the tracklisting of that June 1985 episode so much. And yes, especially the Machinations and Kids In the Kitchen videos (if they are videos).

Re: rage goes retro 2 - 3 Countdown episodes in FULL detail here!

Might have to print the 1985 chart from that week from Gavin's site and have it with me while watching this episode.

Re: rage goes retro 2 - 3 Countdown episodes in FULL detail here!

Three more great episodes of Countdown. This is proving to be a very good start to Retro.

The episode that they are playing is listed as Sept 20, the SKA episode was the week earlier on Sept 13. They did play Gangsters off that episode this morning for the Specials tribute.

So far we've only had January 26th, February 16th and December 27th.

Re: rage goes retro 2 - 3 Countdown episodes in FULL detail here!

The 1981 and 1985 episodes look good - IV with Adam & The Ants

Not generally a fan of the 1987 episodes but there's usually a few good things to make them worth watching.

Re: rage goes retro 2 - 3 Countdown episodes in FULL detail here!

Loved the "Shine" video. I must have seen it back in 85 but in the internet age the only thing on youtube has been a live (and pretty awful) remix, so to see the original again was amazing.

Hi Clip Magnet

Unfortunately mate Countdown don't like to play the full videos. Shine is missing 40 seconds from the start, I Write The News is missing 20 and the cut off about 30 seconds for My Hearts On Fire. Luckily I have all 3 in nice, clean and full anyway but I might just do some editing and use most of the Countdown videos as that is a bit better quality anyway.

Re: rage goes retro 2 - 3 Countdown episodes in FULL detail here!

Is there any way to see more of Kim Durant's videos than the few that are out on YouTube???
