I thought the Buggles single was original and fresh.

I love the pay-off in The Knack's single. There's a little pause after they sing "good girls don't" before the phrase "but I do" which you can imagine the girl saying with a wink. I'd only just left school myself and had plenty of fantasies about girls I'd met.

One soviet band managed to become inspired by ska during the Perestroika days (Brigada S), it was like a combination of Madness and Specials.

You call that record a flop, but it did get half way up the chart. They later did better with another song, something about being so inebriated that they couldn't have sex…
There were not many USA groups doing well at this time, there is only one in the chart below. I do remember that I went off Blondie, but I'm surprised, now I've dug out these charts, to find their last two records didn't make my Top 40 at all. I can't remember how that Boomtown Rats track went , I'll have to listen.

I can't watch that video at the moment, but it reminds me that The Jam band copied that Chelsea pensioner look from their fan Tony Fletcher (who I later knew, when he was Faith Brothers manager). I'd found out that The Jam were doing a secret gig at the Marquee, but I couldn't get in because the writer John Blake gave it away in the Evening News and crowds of people turned up. Anyway Tony Fletcher, who was wearing his original Chelsea pensioner outfit that night, had a fan say to him sarcastically "didn;t take you long to copy that, did it" - this was one day after the above TOTP

I can remember the tune for the bit that goes 'I don't even know if it's right'. sung twice, but maybe the title of the record is something else. I might be able to listen to it, I've probably got it on a personal cassette compilation, recorded off the radio, then I could see if it might match one of the songs on that EP you mentioned. As they never did a Peel session or an LP, the band name and title can't both be right - possibly the song was by another band and I got mixed up when the record was introduced or back-announced. I'll see what I can find out, but it's very hard to look up when there are currently both a pop group and a rock band of that name.

I think that Small Hours EP will turn up in the chart later in 1980.
The Sports and the Jags got some radio play, but the other new entries were probably only played on John Peel. This was New Year' Day, so no high-profile new releases.
I really used to like this but it was only a session track:
