Monday Night Jams: Police Version

I’m eating my dinner and checking out some dinner time tunes and this came up. I had forgotten what a jam this song was. The Police were like Venom. Both were from Britain, both had three people, both had singing bass players, and both had drummers that looked like they just walked in from the track meet.

Unfortunately, the Police didn’t have any “bulldozer bass” and probably wouldn’t have felt comfortable singing “Welcome to Hell” or “Red Light Fever” but damn, they could play.

This clip contains the footage that was shown in Urgh: A Music War, but preserves the raw mix of the show.

Amazing.

I included a clip from Venom for comparison. You can see clearly that they are almost the same band.
