    Some good elements mixed in here. Jam Knopf and I think it's Superego.

    There's actually a story to this that includes their name. :)

    "1977–1979: Formation[edit]
    Initially the Bugs, the name of the Buggles was meant as a pun on The Beatles, pictured here in 1964.
    Downes claimed the group's name derived as a pun on the rock band the Beatles, saying: "It was originally called the Bugs ... studio insects—imaginary creatures who lived in recording studios creating havoc. Then somebody said as a joke that the Bugs would never be as big as The Beatles. So we changed it to the Buggles."[7]"
    ...
    "1998–present: Reunion performances[edit]
    Being largely a studio creation, the Buggles never toured.
    There were some Top of the Pops playback appearances, and later some performances for promotional purposes in support of the second album, but the first live outing by the original duo came in a low-key appearance on 3 December 1998 at a showcase for new bands on Horn's ZTT Records label at Mean Fiddler in north-west London, during which they played only "Video Killed the Radio Star", backed up by singer Tessa Niles and one of the other groups on the bill, The Marbles.[22]

    On 11 November 2004, The Buggles reunited with Doss, Allen and Woolley at Wembley Arena to perform "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "The Plastic Age" as part of a Prince's Trust charity concert celebrating Horn's career as a producer.[23]"

    They never toured as the Buggles and were the first video to be played on MTV.

    Alvin Lee - I'm Writing You A Letter, Put In A Box



    For whatever reason, there are two versions of this song (I'm Writing You A Letter) on the album, and this is the better one. The guitar style is fast, fluent, and energizing, but completely devoid of flashiness and self-indulgence that so many others seem to need to be.
