Before Jeremy Kyle, even before Springer; there were people twice as righteous; People who contributed in the noble tradition of organizations like The Sun, combining shots of naked bosoms with inquisitorial outrage, and apparently seeing no mutual contradiction.  

 

Wally George

It’s rare that television produces anything so close to a rabid orgy as Wally George’s Hot Seat. Considering his age, and obvious impending dementia, it wouldn't be too far off to compare his show to a man sermonizing with a bible made of ham to a room full of chained wild dogs. 

Hatefully feeble bouts of fisticuffs between old men, livestock on stage and destroyed furniture were all matters of course on Wally’s show. 

Now take Jim Goad, magnificent bastard that he is, and his then-wife Debbie.  In their self published magazine ANSWER ME!, These two practically invented the mouthy, insulting and altogether brilliant style that went on to form magazines like Street Carnage and Vice. 

it’s kind of like cock-fighting.
