This is a feature on Romo that was broadcast on BBC2's The Sunday Show in 1996. It's an attempt to be tongue-in-cheek by presenter Katie Puckrick but I think the Romos just about come tops thanks to Xav from Dex Dexter's hilarious "out with the old" tirade. Orlando aren't featured in it (you can catch a quick glimpse of Dickon and Tim watching Sexus) because we refused! We guessed (rightly it seems) that they would do their best to send up what, at the time, was a genuinely exciting club scene and didn't want any part of it. In the film you can see Plastic Fantastic, Hollywood, Dex Dexter and Sexus. As well as Steve Strange, Tony Hadley, Marc Almond, Simon Price, future Suede biographer and bassist with NME favourites The Boyfriends David Barnet and all manner of 'faces' of the time. How ridiculous it seemed, back then, for pop music to be influenced by the 80s...
