THE SMITHS ON BRITISH TELLY (Parts 24 & 25)
The band returned to the north-east of England to the Tyne-Tess studios on 5 Jult 1986 to take part in a one-off show called Eurotube.
Two songs were played. One was well-known as probably the most popular track on The Queen Is Dead, while the other was a brand new song. The producers of the show captioned them the wrong way round:-
It was a great way to first hear Panic...and the kid who briefly turned the band into s six-piece was a specially hired actor and not as some rumours have suggested a relation of Johnny's Incidentally, am I alone in thinking that the live version of There Is A Light... is a bit weak and limp?
But then again, it's a song that has never been bettered than its original version...even when played live by the band or covered in later years.
