Looks great, Alan.

Is there another form of link other than Facebook? Only I could pass this on to a whole load of people who would love to drop in for a punky lockdown party but wouldn't be able to through what appears to be the media outlet of choice, me and Fred at least included.

Grateful for any ideas 👍

We'll just have to hold our noses Slaughterboy.

Uli tells me I'm the only other thing on F*c*b**k anyway - how ironic!

There doesn't seem to be anything new on the Facebook page but from the comments, it's going to be live on the page,
Fred, posted about this somewhere else on the Forum (before TV was confirmed) but all the link on Ents24 does is take you to the Facebook page, I guess all or parts of it will end up on YouTube eventually.

Many thanks Alan.

I've referred everyone to this better informed thread.

No! Not 8.45! That's when I was planning on blinking!

Seriously, how is this going to work? Are they showing clips? These must only be approximate timings and I guess each act is only providing one song. I know that TV ruled out streaming due to the Interweb connection where he is.

If it is live, there's probably just enough time to say "Good Evening - and thanks for being a great audience"!

Seems a really tight schedule. If I can't have a look tonight, I will search for clips tomorrow...

Disappointing to say the least, less artists with a longer running time for each would (for me anyway) have worked better.
Apart from TV's (less than 2 minutes) Bored Teenagers - same set-up as for the Acoustic Video Sessions but doesn't appear to have been recorded at the same time (Acoustic Video Sessions volume 2 please!) - the old acoustic guitar used on this one? - the highlight for me was Glen Matlock & Earl Slick's "Blank Generation". I seem to remember these 2 having done some stuff on Glen's Facebook page - must check that out.
Not sure how long the Vive Le Rockdown video will be up but here's a direct link to it:

You can also donate to the Music Venue Trust (though a proper link for this would have helped).

I was desperately trying NOT to give away what well-known two minute punk song TV had performed!

Time for the big question:

Was "Bored Teenagers" a one off for Saturday's festival or just one track from Video Sessions Vol. II?

We who wait...
