Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant is humbled by the lunacy of the Tiswas set but handles it very well. Name check for new wave band Landscape at the top of the programme as well as heavy metal die hard Ian Gillan (ex of Deep Purple) and The Cure. There was a bit of a heavy metal revival going on at the start of the 80s – the so-called New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) – hence Plant’s appearance I suppose.

I'm Tony McMahon and I've had two books published set in this time of crisis. "Original Rude Boy", the biography of Neville Staple of The Specials. "No Place To Hide", the biography of 80s boxer Errol Christie. I was very politically active during this period - not on Thatcher's side! View all posts by The Thatcher Crisis Years
