    “Mindless Boogie” made it to #46 in the spring of ’79 (so says chart stats). I think I prefer “Good Times” as a disco commentary song, but thanks for playing it! (and the Slade too).

    Yes, all those references to clones, the Jonestown massacre etc. were a bit too much for our wonderful radio playlists so it didn’t do as well as it ought to have done but it’s an extraordinary single; rather like Talking Heads’ Fear Of Music: The Mickie Most Remixes!

    Imagine, and entire show on Boogie without the dreaded name of Jools Holland coming up once. Bliss!

    (No definition of Boogie-ooogie-oogie mind you, nor a mention of Metal Mickey).

    Jools was hovering like a boggart in the background – we knew if things got tight we might have to mention him and it spurred us on to greater lows of nonsense.

    Metal Mickey is making the synth noises on the Hot Chocolate track.
