...with THE dB's!  Although the influential, but oh-so-unlucky modern pop combo will likely stress new material when I see them tonight, we have vintage video of "Happenstance," "Bad Reputation" and "Living A Lie" from Sweden circa 1982.  From the studio, we have the clip for "Neverland." Chris Stamey left the band (temporarily) after which we got the infamous, banned-from-MTV clip for "Amplifier," plus live takes of "She Got Soul" and "Not Cool" from the legendary Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ circa 1986.  From the same time period, you can see the band help close down Folk City in NYC with a cover of Bob Dylan's "Positively 4th Street."
