Embed and breakfast man: The Parachute Men

A quick dip into some late 80s northern indie today. Fire Records' finest*, The Parachute Men:



As far as I can tell, this is the only moving video of them online - later on it's going to be stills and music. You've got to love that Carry On Disarming video from the NME, haven't you? After putting in about two years as 'the only thing Planet X had to show on its TV screens', it's now enjoying a healthy afterlife as 'the only online video presence of some great lost bands'.

So, the Parachute Men. Two Greggs, and drummer who also played keyboards; blonde hair and black leather jackets. They were - if you'll take a breath and follow me on this - the sort of band who would be put together to appear in a TV programme which needed an indie band, before their sort of band was considered to be an archetype.

And, perhaps surprisingly, that song up there, Leeds Station, turned up on the Chris Moyles show just last year. Albeit smuggled in by Steve Lamacq.
