Legs & Co. – Bankrobber

Top of the Pops, 21 August 1980: Legs & Co dance to Bankrobber by The Clash.

It’s silly literal choreography time again, as Legs & Co. dress up as bank robbers for this routine, complete with guns (edible), demand notes (of the collage kidnapper sort), money bags with “SWAG” written on them, and stripey erm…not jumpers: maillots? leotards?

A nice choreographic touch: the barred screens in front of them serve as both prison bars and bank tellers’ security grills.

Update: Better quality BBC4 repeat version added.

Here’s a surprisingly camp Steve Wright, introducing Legs & Co., who dance behind bars to The Clash’s Bank Robber. This routine often comes up whenever anyone complains about over-literal choreography, but it’s not that bad. I don’t see any domino masks, for instance…

Thanks to PattiforPM for another clip, in response to Jef’s request.
