Hahahaha. God, I remember this show airing on cable TV back in the mid '80s. Stumbled across the clip with Wilko Johnson not too long ago.
Rock School seemed hilariously dreary at the time (the name Deirdre seemed to capture that). But watching it again nearly 30fuckingyears later i find it genuinely educationalmade me realise how little i know about the nuts and bolts of how music is made!
and how insanely wonderful is it to have footage of Dennis Bovell talking about his craft
Agreed on all three counts. In some respects, I guess it was kind of like the Open University for aspiring garage bands.
