You, You Tube and the music: Stiff

Our sometime Sundays collection of stuff off of YouTube takes its inspiration from the recent Stiff night on BBC4, with some Stiff artists, although not always from their time on the label:

Tracey Ullman - Breakaway - keyworded "fetish" on account of the leather skirts
Tracey Ullman - Terry - video of the cover...
Kirsty MacColl - Terry - ... video of the original version
Plasmatics - Butcher Babies - NSFW video
Elvis Costello - Alison/Pump It Up - filmed on Super8 during a 1981 performance
The Pogues - Dirty Old Town - live version with Kirsty MacColl hanging about in the back
Tenpole Tudor - Swords of a Thousand Men - from Top of the Pops, looks like
Wreckless Eric - Whole Wide World
Devo - That's Good from David Letterman's show in 1982
