TV: C is for...

Club X

DEMENTED DOOMED toffs talking shop-cum-“happening” which knew Foucault about postmodernism and, indeed, good telly. MURRAY BOLAND was the helmsman, holding forth from within live “events” comprising (usually) scrap metal sculpting, nude body painting, student theatre (“I am death; I kill you”) and lots and lots of noise. Made no sense. Couldn’t hear a thing. Ill-advised Sunday lunchtime repeat soon pulled. Ditto the entire series.

    Used to tune in religously to this just for the Victor Lewis Smith “Buygones”, one of the funniest things i remember seeing, just found the “Buygone” book in a second hand book shop, actually crying with laughter reading it. Mind you the rest of Club X was awful only thing i remember were the naked ladies covered in blue paint throwing themselves at a large canvas (this for some (NAKED) reason made a impression on me).

    The brief clip of this shown on Channel Four’s largely awful ‘100 Greatest Moments from TV Hell’ where the presenter gingerly raised a glass and toasted ‘To futurism, everybody’ – before being startled by a loud offscreen explosion still makes me laugh when I think of it.
