    The Immortals was a one-off group featuring Queen's John Deacon for the film Biggles.


    I can only tell you where the boost for The Mission's single *didn't* come from.

    I have some of the '86 Festive 50 on tape. After playing Serpents Kiss, Peel says "That's one of three tracks in this year's Festive 50 I have never previously played on the radio. So much for those of you who say I make the whole thing up."

        "More Janice than me, really"

        The other two he hadn't played previously were 'I Want You' and 'Heartland', much to his clear chagrin! The Mission weren't accorded the same response...;)

        • Yes! It was fairly amusing when things turned up that he hadn't played. He really disliked Bob Mould's band Sugar.

                  Good spot! I've just checked, there does appear to be some spelling error / confusion on the chart report with two different spellings of the name. Discogs has a total of 35 variations of spelling for his name! Maybe he should have stuck to Kenneth Allen, which is his real name...

                    Stone Roses had five in 1989! He was not happy;)

                    • ZZ Top sound/lookalike band actually from Birmingham!


                      They did a Peel Session and one album.

                      It's amazing how many reggae/dub/ska tracks made the bottom half of the 200. Gregory Isaacs and King Kong this week.

                      I think that's the chart debut of Anthrax?

                        I have a feeling that Gallup must have added some reggae specialists to the chart panel around this time. I worked in north west London in this period and there were records shops that specialised in reggae scattered all over the area. It wouldn't surprise me if some of them had been added. A lot of the records they sold were distributed by Jet Star Records which was based near my office and which also had its own label as well as being a distributor of numerous smaller labels https://www.discogs.com/label/132273-Jetstar

                        • Re 31st May chart - I found one of my favourite records of the year (if not the decade) make an early entry at 106 (Furniture's 'Brilliant Mind', which criminally underperformed by peaking at 21 in July), and also one of my hated records of the year (if not the decade) at 159 (Claire & Friends' 'It's 'Orrible Being In Love', which criminally overperformed by peaking at 12 also in July).

                          On 7th June - is that Anthrax's first UK chart appearance at (joint) 134? I wonder what was prompting Hawkind's 'Silver Machine' to re-enter (122) and Blondie's 'Denis' (159)? Rather random records from the '70s suddenly attaining enough panel sales to make the bottom half.

                          Interesting above regarding these obscure reggae tracks/artists. Flicking through the MW release lists of the period it's clear just how many singles of this genre were being issued, with very few ever making it into Top 100 or 75 territory (although those few that did tended to do rather well - the likes of Audrey Hall and Sophia George come to mind, as does Boris Gardiner, from whom I expect to hear very shortly). It is revealing to find many were doing enough sales to register an official 101-200 berth and as you say perhaps that was being aided by Gallup adding more reggae specialist shops to their panel.

                          • I love both Brilliant Mind and It's 'Orrrible. The latter is one of the only good child records i can think of. Written by Michael of Brian and Michael.

                            • 'Silver Machine' is charting off the back of being released as a picture disc to promote an Anthology series of albums. I can't find a reason for 'Denis' charting in June 1986. It was released on Old Gold with 'Picture This' on the B side but that wasn't until February 1987 plus that release doesn't chart.

                                    • Bananarama's Venus is making good progress. Good cover but not a patch on Shocking Blue's original UK hit in 1970.

                                      Interestingly though Shocking Blue topped the US chart in early 1970 with their version and later Banararama will emulate this and do likewise.

                                      • Were there a bunch of classic soul releases on one label this week? (Aretha, O'Jays, Isley Brothers)

                                        Janet Jackson reply record i knew nothing about!

                                        Cosmic Climb is a shameless cash-in - she's just a backing vocalist on it, even Jellybean didn't bother giving her a co-credit for doing that on Sidewalk Talk.
                                        They used her image to flog an album in the 90s. https://www.discogs.com/master/91094...r-Cosmic-Climb

                                          Yes, there were! The MW release list for W/C Monday 2nd June confirms each of those acts had their old hit re-issued, albeit on the face of it at least on different labels (Aretha on Atlantic, O'Jays on Portrait and Isleys on Epic apparently). Also Smokey on Motown.

                                                • Tom Watt is Lofty from EastEnders doing Bob Dylan in the style of Jona Lewie! In the video are most of New Order, Brix Smith and Josie Lawrence.


                                                  Apparently he said he was left with hundreds of copies of the 7" in his mother's loft.

                                                  • ^ the people who produced the record are the same people behind Gerry and The Holograms - whose song of the same name from 1979 bears a similarity to the melody of Blue Monday.
