Time trippin' with the Mystery Jets



No, it's not an '80s video. It's from a new band called the Mystery Jets (official website). It was recommended by Stuck in the '80s London correspondent Sean Mulcahy, who has an update from across the Big Pond:

Hi Steve and Sean. Hope you're both well. I've just been catching up on the last couple of shows. You two recently asked the question: Am I related to film and video director Russell Mulcahy? Well, as far as I'm aware I'm not. I wish I was -- he's a great talent. Also, he is from Melbourne, Australia, and I'm from London, England.

And as for Sean's comments about the Pet Shop Boys, for me they sum up the '80s sounds I so love. I started working in the West End of London in 1986, the year after the PSBs released West End Girls. I worked very close to the areas where much of the video was shot, and it always brings back memories.

My girlfriend of the time loved them, as well as Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Terence Trent D'Arby and George Michael. The '80s were such a good time for me, I'd love to invent a time machine and go back and have some more fun.

As for the video, it's for a band called the Mystery Jets. Have a look, they are a current London band with an '80s thing going on.

All the best -- Sean Mulcahy.
