The Redskins – Beating The Blues

The Redskins had a video, yes VHS young people!, in 1984.
It was filmed at gigs on January 5th 1984, Institute Of Contemporary Arts, London and January 20th 1984 at the NE London Polytechnic. They play 5 songs and there are interviews with the band and the audience.
Swells’ then girlfriend is interviewed. She wisely left him soon after. Also there’s Billy Bragg, Wiggy, Roger and Mike.
I’ve had the VHS under the bed for years.
You’re spared that shame and can watch it here –
