I loved The Teardrop Explodes but their current single 'Treason' had already made my chart on it's original release in 1980 when it reached no. 2. The Freshies were inventive (much more so than the singer's later incarnation Frank Sidebottom), I think they were even the first band to release a video LP, an idea which was seen by some as the future of music releases at the time.

Ah okay. I did check back a couple of pages but couldn't find the previous, Reward, either - so (wrongly) assumed that you mustn't have liked them. Might just have missed it in skimming.

Passions were so fresh and innovative...
I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.
