The Police – Can’t Stand Losing You / Next To You (Live on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978)

The Old Grey Whistle Test tried to get young, interesting bands before they exploded internationally. An example is the Police in 1978. Just a raw punk three piece. Before their sheer talent burst through the limitations of that genre. They do two songs in this clip – “Can’t Stand Losing You” and “Next To You”. Tons of energy. Sting looks young and angry. No tantric sex for this young Sting. That came later.
