Rare Police video unearthed



Exclusive video of The Police on youtube.com:

OK, so maybe it's not "The" Police.  The band's name is actually Dog Police. And this video was a favorite back in the day of MTV's Basement Tapes. The band released a self-titled album in 1983 -- the same year as The Police's last album, Synchronicity.

A coincidence? Yes, totally.

My review of The Police's actual reunion performance on the Grammys Sunday night: Ehh, okay, I suppose. At least they were well-rested. Or as former Times TV critic and Stuck in the 80s contributor Chase Squires said via e-mail: "Ack, that sucked."
