The Show: When Harri Met Steve

I remember hearing today’s opening song on the John Peel show back in 1980. Unfortunately I could never recall the name of the band (The Silver) or the name of the track (Do You Wanna Dance). What I thought I recalled was that the band were from Sweden (Finland actually), were very young and fell about in hysterics half way through the performance. Not even the most sophisticated 21st century search engines could provide a solution to a 40 year mystery with that scant information.

By sheer chance I came across a website that did provide the solution, buried deep in a post about ramshackle outsider art music. However the mystery continues because my browser history has been deleted and I can’t remember the website I have to thank.

And on with the show…
