The Teardrop Explodes - Reward (Top Of The Pops) (1981) (HD)

Classic 80's big and brassy sound from The Teardrop Explodes with "Reward" performing on Top Of The Pops from 1981.

Extended to the full length audio track, with all the usual clean up stuff done to it.


The Teardrop Explodes were an English post-punk/neo-psychedelic band formed in Liverpool in 1978. Best known for their Top Ten UK single "Reward" (which is still a staple of 1980s alternative pop compilations), the group originated as a key band in the emerging Liverpool post-punk scene of the late 1970s, the group also launched the career of group frontman Julian Cope as well as that of keyboard player and co-manager David Balfe (later a record producer, A&R man and founder of Food Records). Other members included early Smiths producer Troy Tate.

In November 1980 Alan Gill left The Teardrop Explodes, claiming not to enjoy the touring lifestyle. Gill was replaced by former Shake guitarist Troy Tate . As well as broadening the band’s sound and outlook, Alan Gill had brought in an all-but-complete new song before his departure, which he and Cope had reworked. This was released as the band’s next single, "Reward". In January 1981, the song hit No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart (with the semi-estranged Balfe joining the band to mime trumpet playing during their Top of the Pops appearance)
