I was in contact with the guy who runs the site and he told me he had a trip planned to a Dutch TV studio to have a look at their archive. He was hoping to unearth some more footage.

More like the other way around. Haircut 100 were all but finished by then with Nick Heyward having left. Strange choice of band for 2 Tone, didn't offer anything 'new' and they weren't even among the best bands of that genre either

Le's be honest, how many of us would have bought The Appolinaires and Higsons singles if they hadn't been on 2-Tone?

I remember being in Golden Discs record shop in Belfast looking to buy the new 2-Tone release by The Apollinaires (The Feeling's Gone), and they had Pato and Roger Ago Talk on display . Still being at school and skint I couldn't afford both, and subsequently I wasn't able to get the Pato and Roger single til years later. On merit the Pato and Roger single should have been the purchase but such was the power of 2-Tone that I bought The Appolinaires.

Now I can listen to the track and think it's not a bad song but at 15 my musical tastes weren't as eclectic.
