The Buggles might have a hit that gets played at probably every vaguely cheesy night ever, but you’ll never have heard ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ live. When the band were together they didn’t play a single live show, but now they’ve had a mere 30 years to get a bit of practice in they’ve agreed it’s time to rectify that.
Trevor Horn, Geoff Downes and original member Bruce Woolley will be playing their debut, one-off show later next month in London. Held on September 28, we only know so far that it’s at an intimate venue in West London and that it’ll be a performance of their debut album ‘The Age of Plastic’ in full with all proceeds going to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. We’ll be honest and own up that we’d never heard a Buggles song apart from the obvious until today, but after a little bit of Spotify action we are quite excited by the album’s explosion of the 1980′s impression of the future synth pop. There is even a song about glorious Elstree.
Announced on Horn’s website yesterday prospective attendees are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘The Buggles special concert… add me to the mailing list, please!’ Needless to say we’ll keep you up to date too.
