Off The Chart - 29 October 1988

Off The Chart: 29 October 1988

We’re slowly dissolving in acid this week as we revisit the chart of 29 October 1988! Steve and Julian play some of the forgotten hits of the week, including acid house tracks of varying quality from D-Mob, Yazz and even Bros, plus three tracks from the featured album by Bomb The Bass. There’s all sorts of other music as well of course, including Steve Earle, Julian Cope and the Human League, and the top five in full. Just what was the difference between the Highlanders and the Highliners? Whatever happened to the Soviet Space Shuttle? And who found the Beeb’s Lost Beatles Tapes? Click Play to find out!
