Madonna, Leonard Cohen, the Dave Clark Five, the Ventures and John Mellencamp

Not exactly Ubu's shining moment but still much closer to their prime than their appearance of the David Sanborn show which I also found on YouTube. If only the Pagans' "Dead End America" video that was floating around a while ago was still available.
