This concert from May 1983 finds Dance Exponents — one of five bands filmed for a Radio with Pictures live series — with their star on the rise but yet to release their debut album. An irrepressible Jordan Luck and band mates Dave Gent, Brian Jones and Mike Harralambi perform six songs in front of an enthusiastic full house at Auckland's premier venue Mainstreet Cabaret. Highlights include a sparse, urgent 'Victoria' and a barnstorming 'Airway Spies'; while opener 'Perfect Romance' was only ever released in this version from a companion live album.

Hi Tom - we'll see if we can track the Shazam! concert down. Do you remember a year for it by any chance?

Great video from Mainstreet - well done on posting that. What chance is there to track down the footage of the Dance Exponents live in Christchurch that featured on Shazam, way before the RWP Mainstreet gig?

The Live at Mainstreet series was fantastic. Please make some more full length shows available.

Perhaps, as only a live recording could, this testifies to their greatest quality — an overwhelming sense of fun.
