This is a question Old stuff I still know

Our Ginger Fuhrer says that he could still code up a simple game idea in Amstrad Basic, while I'm your man if you ever need to rebuild the suspension on an Austin Allegro (1750 Equipe version). This stuff doesn't leave your mind - tell us about obsolete talents you still have.

nobody thought you were.

Sigue Sigue Sputnik were a landmark band in British music history

I remember... ~~~~~ wavy lines ~~~~~
Jools Holland and Paula Wilcox, at the end of The Tube, telling us eager popsters that next week we would be treated to an amazing thing: the brand new, hottest band in the world! The most exciting thing to happen to music since Ugg banged two rocks together! A band that would make all previous bands irrelevant!

How we waited with bated breath; seven days had never seemed to drag so slowly. How we crammed around the TV the next Friday, sweaty with anticipation. How we laughed at the look of pure horror on Jools' face as SSS launched into their "song", and he realised just how hard he'd been stitched up! How we chuckled as the press and public alike disappeared over the horizon, leaving tumbleweed to blow across the studio floor, even as the last synthesized chords died away.

Happy days.
