Hot Gossip – The Hardest Part
Hot Gossip were always cheeky, funky and futuristic but their romps and routines never quite captured the swish, sparkle or understated ‘oomph’ of Pan’s People.’The Hardest Part’ was a low level hit in the U.S for Blondie – the original vid’ with Debbie Harry strutting like a dark haired dominatrix
Hot Gossip – ‘All stood still’
‘All Stood Still’ is probably the only Ultravox track that’s not too jarring to these ears. The ‘Goss’s video is painfully 80’s( but loaded with some spectacular leg actions) and seems to filmed in the sort of club that would fire up the ‘dry ice’ and ‘laser display’ at 10:30 of an evening.
Go Home Productions/Mark Vidler is the Big Boss of bootleg remixes’, these two Punk/New Wave ‘bastard pop’ pieces are a couple of his obscure but outstanding tasty treats that really should have been huge international hits.
