TV: R is for...

Revolver

GLAM SVENGALI MICKIE MOST produced this punk-pop show, notably fronted by a (as usual) glum bastard PETER COOK laughably pretending to be the manager of the venue it was set in. Co-host, mingling with studio audience, was ROY HARPER. Consisted of C-list punkites (999, Anti-Pasti) interspersed with Cook rambling on and moaning at the pogoing fools and what a selection of “new wave” dances were on offer. Mostly, however, he just looked sumpremely aloof and hateful, from a massive chromakeyed “television set” high above the proles (the flaps on the screen “revolved” to reveal his superimposed face for each link, hence the show’s name).
