01 The Golden Calf

VHS sourced video, featuring the Golden Calf live. Channel 4, “Big World Cafe”. Dave Brewis joined the band on guitar.

“I haven’t seen this footage before – I do remember it – it is the Brixton Academy and it was filming from a TV show which I can’t remember… I think we only played one song and I played keyboard because on the track I played percussion, on the video I mimed guitar and didn’t sing. So I had to play keyboard live.”
Wendy Smith

“I used to go to the filmings weekly and was chuffed to see my favorite band pop up one week.

“There were a few technical problems, so it was 2 or 3 run thrus and paddy doing a solo rendition of maggies farm to keep the atmosphere up”
