  1. I’d say it was either Sept / October in 1990 (as obviously the tour date for December hadnt been confirmed when the interview took place).

  2. It’s definitely September 1990, the video clip comes from my much-loved and sadly now long-gone VHS recording of the Video File show. I remember watching the interview back many times, amazed how softly-spoken Paddy is and just how charming and self-effacing he comes across as, not to mention a huge fan of music himself. I got in touch with Gareth O’Callaghan a couple of years ago to ask him what his memories were of the interview and how Paddy was as an interviewee but didn’t get a reply. I don’t have Mark Lewisohn-levels of patience to follow up with him, so I guess there’s another untold story gone.
