The TATP Years: 1990

After a short summer break to tend to our respective allotments, Steam sale purchases and pies, series 3 of TATP‘s unique take on the “Rock N Roll Years” continues back with another 45 minute mix of music and clips from a specific era. So get your Global Hypercolour T-shirt out of the bin, pin your Findus Crispy Pancakes boxes to the wall, invite your family and friends round for a small Poll Tax riot and punch Scally the Dog off CITV in the snout as we remind ourselves of the highs and lows of 1990. T’ra Thatch!
