Band : Buggles
Song : Video Killed the Radio Star

'The Buggles' were Geoff Downes and Trevor Horn, and eventually went on
to form Yes (:-).  Later on Geoff ended up starting Asia (another great
80's new wave band ;-) and Trevor Horn became a hot-shot London producer
(Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Seal, et al).

PS: This was the first video ever shown on MTV circa 1980, and it's scary
how true this song turned out!
