    Who can forget Faith No More's EPIC music video, with Mike Hatton's hilarious woollen jumper that his grandma knitted for him.

    Mike Patton, not Hatton. I would never want to forget that song, video, or jumper. It is hilarious, but honestly its about the worst stuff Patton has ever done. To me Tomahawk would be the best stuff he has ever done.

    Yup, it's Patton, damn it. The perils of posting drunk! EPIC had patches of brilliance, but the whole White Guy Trying To Do Rap thing was sad.

    I always loved the way FNM (or The Village People of Metal, as Warren put it) kept themselves on a first name basis with the ridiculous. God knows we had, and still have, an abundance of overly self-important metal bands.

    God, I haven't heard this version in years...

    First heard this song on a " Now that's what I call music " compilation , just after The Primitives , and it changed my world.

    Sidewalking? I heard it the night John Peel first played it... and then played it another two or three more times because he loved it so much. I still think this was their high point.

    They definitely went downhill after Darklands , although I'm still fond of the last album Munki , perhaps because it was about that time that I finally got to see them live.

    Their cover of Mushroom is one of the droniest, most obsessive things I've ever heard.

    sidewalking always reminds me of sly fox's 'let's go all the way' and vice versa.

    @frenchbloke: THANK YOU! Couldn't place the damn melody in my brain, but that's it.

    Holy crap, I LOVED this album to death back in the day! I even did a music video for the song "Love Lasts Forever" for an "alternative video media" class in college (it got erased by an asshole studio tech).

    To my mind, Kissing The Pink was a perfect mix of early Human League, plenty of weird instrumentation and prog-rock pomposity, nestled into alternate synthpop. They skewed too pop after this album (trying to achieve that PWL/Stock/Aitken/Waterman sound), but they just appeared a few years ago on 3-4 songs on the latest X-Press 2 album "Makeshift Feelgood". Sounds exactly like they used to.

    Just caught up with the thread, starting from Amazulu. I'm surprised no-one posted "So what? Ah'ma Glaswegian"
    My abiding memory of John Peel on TOTPs was his ironic dancing, which I still emulate to this day.
    XTC - while they did a couple of classics I much preferred their alter-egos - The Dukes of Stratosphear!

    Maybe you should start a compilation album franchise. I'd buy Now That's What I Call Warren's Ancient Jukebox.

    I always thought 'Somekind of Wonderful' was highly underrated.

    The soundtrack had Furniture's 'Brilliant Mind'which is pretty damn good.
