Off The Chart: 10 January 1986We’re safely back in pre-recorded mode this week on Off The Chart after last week’s live shenanigans, as we look at the UK singles chart from today in 1986. We’ll have the usual supply of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, plus tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s events, a trip to the Belgian chart and the top five singles in full.

  • Who had a hit EP, album and mini-album before releasing their first actual single?
  • Which minor hit was the basis for a much bigger hit three years later?
  • And which song links The Young Ones to Screaming Lord Sutch?

Tune in and find out!
