Great post. I’m jealous of you stumbling upon Napalm Death. There were huge part of my youth, particularly as there prevalence as I left school. I must’ve been the only one of my friends who never got to saw them live.

And wow that Tucker’s Luck clip certainly brought back some memories.

Remember when he was on this is your life, and Norman Wisdom popped up? It’s on this video 20 minutes in :-) https://youtu.be/hQUd8q7K8uY

Todd Carty went way up in my estimations after that as Norman was also a screen hero of mine. In fact, I bumped into him once and got him to shout “Mr Grimsdale!” into a microcassette recorder that I happened to have in my pocket.

Thanks for taking me down some long, lost rabbit holes.
