The last week of rage Goes Retro airs Saturday 28th January and takes us up to the end of the 90s with a fantastic collection of clips along with some amazing old episodes of Countdown, Countdown Revolution and The Factory.
Catch vintage performances by Aussie bands like Mental As Anything and the Dynamic Hepnotics, and revel in the fashions that have strangely enough come back round.
The Molly Meldrum-produced Countdown Revolution entertained a new generation of music-lovers and we are proud to show two fantastic episodes of the show, one of which features Collette performing on stage in those bike-pants.
No doubt we’ve rekindled some old memories, or provided history lesson for some – either way we hope you enjoy the final night of rage Goes Retro before commencing our 2012 program of guest presenters and specials.
Rage airs on ABC1. Rage Goes Retro Saturday January 28 from 12.30am Saturday night (or Sunday morning if you are that way inclined).
