I can't watch those lip synched videos. The Associates' appearances were terribly managed; the studio recordings versus the TV appearances is totally jarring for me. Party Fears Two is such a massive and influential song, for me. The Associates may very well have made more and sold more records over time if they'd never done a single promotion, IMO. I think the look on Alan Rankine's face says it all.

My friend was a student in Dundee around the same time, he often saw Billy walking his whippets.
Here's something with Aungle that is presented real nicely.
