The TATP Years: 1985

Welcome, welcome, welcome home to T-A-T-P!

So put down that inferior podcast and set fire to all copies of Derek and TATP has return for 2013 and what better start than the return of our most popular show – The TATP Years.

For those who are unfamiliar  its our own version of the old BBC show “The Rock N Roll Years” devoted to music and clips that would never make “The Rock N Roll Years”. Offering up a taste of as much from each year as possible, the first episode of series 3 looks at the year 1985 with pop, rock, dance, indie, hip hop and whatever the hell Doctor In Distress is meant to be…



Music comes from Propaganda, Big Audio Dynamite, Eighth Wonder, Dead Or Alive, The Dukes Of Stratosphear, Debarge, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Redbox, The Smiths, Scritti Polliti and…Willy Rushton?!

Plus clippage from Grange Hill, Eastenders, Girls On Top, Gary Davies, Back To The Future, Live Aid, Smith and Jones, Crazy Like A Fox, Brazil, The Supergrass, Saturday Superstore, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV, Neighbours, Doctor Who and the early days of Phillip Schofield in the Broom Cupboard.

From now, The TATP Years with be a monthly podcast allowing more exposure to each mix and something nice to look forward to throughout 2013. You can get them all from the TATP site itself or via iTunes *here* and if you think we’re the sort of mixtape monkeys you’d like to share with the world, please consider giving us a nice review and rating so other decent souls with excellent taste in podcast nonsense might find their way here too. Thank you!
