(1983)

Nickname: "The Wrong Time, Wrong Place Logo"

Logo: On a black background, the neon pink cursive text "COCKney Rebels" with "Specials" below zooms out from the right, leaving trails behind it. Suddenly, we cut to a purple 4-square outline, the blank spaces of which are then filled with pictures of a woman (Linzi Drew) scantily-clad in a swimsuit seductively posing to the camera. Then, we cut back to the text again, which is suddenly tilted and zooming in and out in a frantic fashion.

FX/SFX: The trails, the pictures, and the zooms.

Music/Sounds: Starts with a disco beat that sounds like a poor man's "Blue Monday", then a descending synth effect that repeats 4 times, before the beat and descending sound are merged together at once, rapidly repeating.

Availability: Seen their only few releases, Wrong Time Wrong Place, Werewolf Woman, and The Last Angels. It's also likely each of them has a different logo variant also.

Editor's Note: This logo utilizes ultra-low-budget computer effects for the time, and the frantic zooming at the end is quite unnecessary and jarring.
