    Fucking hell, I’ve never actually seen this!

    Clayton Mark! Charles Augins! That bloke who played Robin Hood in Marian!

    Also, that’s actually a different version to the single itself, isn’t it? And and, I never knew that the claymation stuff as featured on Smeg Outs actually came from here.

    Top find!

    Thanks. It’s bloody odd, but pretty interesting.

    “Is it true you was a racist, and an informant for J Edgar Hoover?”

    Actually, am watching more and more of it, and just keeps getting better/worse.

    Vocoder version is bizarre, as is Danny’s triangular haircut.

    I never knew the whole cast, including Norman(!), took part in the video. How mad is that??

    2 video versions, no cover, black case with white sticker, ordered through the Smegazine I think, and then the same thing with a proper cover, all the audio versions were on the CD.

    But, weirdly, not Danny’s (actually quite good) version of the Dwarf theme tune. To get that you had to buy the tape, the single or the 12 inch.

    I bought all four. It’s anyone’s guess as to why.

    I’ll give it a go on a guess…you are a big Red Dwarf fan.

    Too much like hard work to sit through the first minute of the original link? :-)

    I’ve never seen this before, I’m sure I’ll never watch this again. I bought the single on tape, but I didn’t have a CD player back then and I’ve no idea where the tape went. Despite knowing what I do now, I’d still buy the CD Single if I found somewhere.

    I was really hoping this would appear as a DVD extra, but it sounded like a lot of work just getting anyone to admit to owning the copyright, and so if it had been the reviews would probably have lingered on the mediocrity of this.

    I remember this being in the smegazine, and being massively confused by the presence of Judge Dredd. Only took 15 years to get to the bottom of it. What a disappointment!

    I made it 2:32 into that video, but I started frantically clicking “pause” around 2:29.

    This has been said before, it may have been either here or on the WebBoard, but did someone say that they’d found samples from Robocop on the first Track towards the end?

    Yes, that was me. Aliens, too.

    I dunno, I’d have to listen to the track properly (i.e. not that YouTube-off-a-VHS version). But it included the sound of the Sulaco passing by, and audio from the marines locking and loading in the APC.

    Interesting finding this as I just saw the Dimension Jump episode again as part of my much through the Bodysnatcher Collection disks.

    I still prefer the rawer sound of the original to this more soulful version though. And the drama/acting made me want to wince, although I suspect the cheese was intentional. As did that version of Judge Dredd (I’m a 2000 AD reader too.)

    Interesting to see so many familiar faces though including Queeg 500! And a sexy vamp/cat lady too. (Shouldn’t she have 6 er… oh never mind…)

    Parallel Universe, you mean! Although I think I’ve slipped up on that before too – there’s something about those two titles that’s easy to confuse.

    I said this in my Bodysnatcher review, but never mind: I like the Howard Goodall demo version, and wish the final thing had turned out something like that, before the cast got involved and meddled with the backing track.

    The final version works OK in the episode, but I must admit, I’m bored to the back bloody teeth of it now, and I don’t think it’s that funny or well-done, really. It’s one of my least-favourite moments of the first two series, if I’m honest, although I don’t think it’s *terrible*. (Mind you, does it have ANYTHING to do with the rest of the episode, apart from the repeat of the music in the disco later on? The dialogue is written so it *feels* organic… but if you actually look at it, it isn’t at all!)

    As for Danny’s version, I’ll embrace it as one of the weirder offshoots of the franchise, and there’s something charming about that… but that doesn’t mean I think it’s any good. At all. Ever.

    Anyway, surely the following are the best SF-related spin-off songs are these. (Ignore the broken images – the MP3s work.) I’ve got a really soft spot for Marvin, I Love You

    It’s also weird how they use a more lounge-muzak version for the background music in Better Than Life…

    Yes that’s the one.

    I thought after writing that post I’d gotten a couple of episodes mixed up.

    Never mind.

    I remember the Smegazine had an article about the making of this video. Was always sad that I never got a chance to see it. Now I’m sad that I have.

    I’ve got the official vhs for this. With a proper sleeve and everything. In fact, I used to have two, and I gave a (sleeveless) copy to someone as a present.
    I’ve got the 12″ single, and the sleeve of my cassette single has a little hole where the ‘tabby token’ was…

    I really liked the sleeve art, was it Colin Howard?

    Ah, that would be telling…

    Alright, it was for a competition entry to spend a day with DJJ – you needed one from the single, and one from the smegazine.

    I didn’t win.

    It was. Weird how it differed from format to format – some had Cat in the red suit, one changed the colour to a dark blue, another to a more neon blue…

    And yes, logo fans, design-wise the RD symbol was all over the place…

    > it was for a competition entry to spend a day with DJJ

    The slogan from the party flyer was “The Bat Is Cack”.
