The Buggles was a New Wave band formed in 1977 consisting of Trevor Horn (bass guitar, guitar, percussion, and vocals), Geoff Downes (percussion and keyboards) and Bruce Woolley.
Video Killed the Radio Star", released in late 1979, was the 444th number one in the UK charts, spending one week at the top and shooting The Buggles to fame. At the time of the single's original release, The Buggles did not actually have an album's worth of material to record, and so they wrote most of the other tracks for their debut album The Age of Plastic (1980) while travelling around Europe promoting "Video Killed the Radio Star".
Horn's current band, The Producers, have covered "Video Killed the Radio Star" at all of their performances so far. A clip of one of these performances at Camden Town can be seen on the website for ZTT Records.
