The Brit Awards 1990

Postby solarex » 11 Nov 2007 08:21

For a couple of reasons I am very interested in The Brit Awards 1990. From a time and era where award shows interested me a whole lot more than today.


I need to locate the exact date of the show. Where Wikipedia is usually a good source form those kind of things, it is in this case leaving out that particular detail. The date please.

Secondly. The 1990 edition is perhaps the only show where 808 State music is played. Incounting performances, cue music etc. Making it interesting on this community. The show featured a dancing performance accompanied by the Mike Grey medley to celebrate this "new thing". A clip of that on YouTube please.

Actually there is a music video for that medley as well. A very corny early 90s style video. Looks like inside The Hippodrome.

Hornestly, the medley stinks.

Apparently, the actual show was on 18th February 1990 - it was broadcast live on ITV.

Yes. It has its own release and it is poor.

It was played as a performance on the show with a group of dancers on stage.

It could be pretty interesting to know if it indeed is the only time 808 music have been played on The Brits.

Thanks for putting that one straight, solarex!

And "Yes!": this m-e-d-l-e-y is not the most memorable;
furthermore, it's borderlining to "schlock-job", IMO!

O.K. - was just curious if it was the same medley...

Exactly - got the 7"/12"/CD Single - it's terrible (also includes "Voodoo Ray" as well as "Pacific State)... The video (just a whole load of dancers) isn't much better (got that on VHS somewhere)... :-?
