    I'm trying to find the video of them performing on American Bandstand. To this day I remember it clearly. They were lipsynching (no big deal) and the lead singer started in at the wrong time.:jj:

    GOD I hope I can find the video now.:jj:

    I tried. :nocheer:

    All I could find was the interview portion, but the video stops before the performance.

    I know for a fact I have the video I recorded live from the eighties somewhere tho.

    I discovered them when I bought the Sire records Survivor Sampler cassette in a can with a long fold out silly survival instructions. It was a music emergency for me. So I opened the can and listened to the tape. That's where I heard Wood Beez. It's a great song. And, when I saw the video in dance clubs like Skoochies a year later, Green was like another one of those Boy George kind of fag singers. It didn't
    match how music sounded at all. Good for him for dropping that image.
