Gordon is a mo-ron


One of my WIPs led me to this gem: Jilted John singing his theme song on Top of the Pops in 1978. I love everything about this clip: the distortion that makes his singing even more plaintive, his wounded/bitter facial expressions, his young-Stephen-Malkmus haircut, the fact that it actually seems to be a live band on ToTP, the Devo hopping dance the guitarist is doing, the guy who’s just there for interpretive dancing until the end, everything.
