Does anyone know if this is Pete playing on TOTP with Kirsty in '81.  I know there was a connection with Pete and Simon writing, maybe he filled in for the regular bass player.   It looks like him and he's playing a Steinberg bass [which he started using in the 80s]

best shot at 0:50 and 2.00

 I would say it's definitely Pete. Reminds me of Simon Crowe playing drums on TOTP with Thin Lizzy. Pete and Simon also co wrote You Caught Me Out by Kirsty McColl. Pete was married to Jane Aire whose group helped on Kirsty's first LP:

JANE AIRE & THE BELVEDERES

 

Jane Aire (real name Jane Ashley) was another talented singer from Akron, Ohio whose career really got started outside her homeland, courtesy of a single on Stiff RecordsYankee Wheels.

Aires backing group The Belvederes were, in reality, a London group called The Edge, who came about when guitarist Lu Edmonds and drummer Jon Moss left a brief and unrecorded incarnation of The Damned in 1978.

With the addition of keyboardist Gavin Povey (who had played with Lew Lewis) and bassist Glyn Havard (whose long career has included stints with Yachts and Jade Warrior), The Edge fell together.

As well as playing behind Jane Aire on her LP, they appeared, nearly intact, on Kirsty MacColls first album.
