From Season 14, Episode 2 of Saturday Night Live which Aired: October 15, 1988
I remember this performance because my friend and I saw Bjork at the Jesus and Mary Chain concert the night before. The opening band that night was the Pixies. It was a great night!
From the album "Road to Rouen" released August 8th, 2005 (UK) and August 27th, 2005 (US).
This is a little bit better quality than the one on the Supergrass official.
From the album "Pleased to Meet Me" released in July 1987.
BTW Alex Chilton plays guitar on "Can't Hardly Wait" on that album. Damn this reminds me of high school.

I was surprised to find this on YouTube! I never knew they made a video for this song. The Cocteau Twins hold a special place in my heart and I saw them multiple times when they finally toured again in the 90's.

Spacemen 3 - Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)
from the album "Recurring" released in February 1991
I can't find the edit/album version from the original release to sync this up so I had to use the audio from my recording. There is a little buzz here and there. I didn't like this song when it came out but it's growing on me while I'm working on it. I'm a huge fan of their earlier stuff, did that sound elitist?? I hope not, I mean I like Spaceman 3 when Peter and Jason are actually playing together. They only play on one track on this album.

"Quick as Rainbows" is from the album "Strange Free World" released on March 18, 1991.
I thought the sync was off but that's the way the video was released.

"Get the Balance Right!" single was released on January 31, 1983.
Released in the US on the compilation album "People are People" on July 2, 1984.
In the music video Wilder lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan should be singing it. The band were too afraid to tell the director that Gahan was the lead singer. For some reason the director made the assumption that the singer was Wilder and they were too embarrassed to point out his mistake, the video remains this way today. The music video is not commercially available. (WIKI) After all my years listening to Depeche Mode, and this song being one of my favorites, I didn't know that.
"There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" was released on the "Box Frenzy" album in 1987.
I missed the first 10 seconds of the video, but this is better than what is on YouTube at the moment.
"Drive that fast" is from the second album Strange Free World by British alternative rock/dream pop group Kitchens of Distinction, released on February 19, 1991
I missed a couple of seconds from the beginning.
