NOT THE NINE O’CLOCK NEWS – “The Ayatollah Song” / “Gob On You” (BBC Records RESL 88) December 1980
Not The Nine O’Clock News “Gob On You” – Thee Comedy team of the late ’70s and early ’80s with their punk parody ‘Gob On You’ – Mel Smith dressed like a punk-come-metal-head belting out an angst ridden number of gobbing on anyone and everything that gets in his way.
The normally sexily-clad Pamela Stevenson has been styled as an androgynous trouble-maker, her golden locks have been lopped off and she’s completely bald as she fiercely thumps her keyboard, (in the video) as shown in the TV series.
I remember this clearly when I watched it as a kid. The things on YouTube nowadays is mind blowing. “Gob On You” was recorded in 1979 and previously released as the single B-side of “Oh Bosanquet”.
