Some time in the mid 80s the Decorators played live on BBC2 music programme ‘Riverside’.  The band play Strange One and half of World Apart before being cut off by the end of the show.

Strange One is played very powerfully and fully demonstrates the energy and excitement of the band, I can’t help but watch this and ask myself for the millionth time ‘why the hell didn’t the Decs make it?”

Judge for yourself:

    Good grief I thought the Riverside material had disappeared without trace. Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed seeing this again – thank you Martin – Allan
