Off The Chart: 4 July 1984It may be Independence Day but on Off The Chart we’re depending on you tuning in for a romp through the UK singles chart from this day in 1984! As always we’ll have a load of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a track from a John Peel session broadcast on this day, a round-up of the day’s goings-on, a track from the US chart (it is July 4 after all) and the top five singles in full to conclude.

  • Who went all Spinal Tap on their latest album sleeve before realising it looked “rubbish”?
  • Which perfectionists took two whole months to program the drum machine on just one song?
  • And who declared his latest release to be his worst ever album?

Tune in and find out!
