For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we travel back to London on Nov. 9, 1984, to watch Mark Burgess lead his classic post-punk act The Chameleons through a 13-song, 100-minute set at the Camden Palace, focusing on material from 1983’s Script of the Bridge and its follow-up, What Does Anything Mean? Basically, which was still nearly a year away from release. This show (via uploader djfell13) was released on VHS back in ’85.
