Glenn O'Brien's...
Glenn O'Brien was in the middle of the Punk scene, writing a column for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. One night Glenn was a guest on a cable show If I Cant Dance You Can Keep Your Revolution. The next day he was approached by friends and strangers alike who had caught the show - so he started his own. His best pal Chris Stein, Blondie's guitarist, became co-host and Walter Steding, Warhol's painting assistant, became leader of the TV Party Orchestra. This was the premiere show. Regulars included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Fab Five Freddie, Deborah Harry, John Lurie and Tim Wright of DNA. Extras: John Lurie, David Walter McDermott, Kare Simon & Mick Jones of the Clash.

"...has a certain blurry, rough, unpolished, and enthusiastic charm to it...  Movie Vault

Editor's Note

The premiere episode features performances by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Fab Five Freddie, Deborah Harry, John Lurie and Tim Wright of DNA. O'Brien is also joined by his co-host, Blondie guitarist Chris Stein, while Andy Warhol's painting assistant, Walter Steding, leads the house band, the TV Party Orchestra.
