TV Smith: Your Ticket Out Of Here - The Complete Collectors Guide
Slaby Witness, Sleaze, the Adverts, TV Smith's Explorers, Party Line, High, Production House, Cheap... the TV Smith story is one of rock's richest, filled with some of the most exhilarating music of the past 30 years. And Your Ticket Out Of Here is the first comprehensively detailed guide to every last note of it. Written by Dave Thompson - editor and publisher of the legendary TV Times fanzine.
paperback book, 170 pages. PRICE $25


Between 1980-1984, members of TV Smith's fan club received a free fanzine, running from two to twenty pages, for 43 issues.
The entire series has now been archived on CD, 357 black/white pages of text and images (.bmp) comprising a priceless 357 page archive not only of TV Smith, Adverts and TV Smith's Explorers news, interviews, reviews etc, but also a wealth of related artists... Richard Strange (including a 1981 interview), Doctors of Madness (including a complete band history), Lords of the New Church (three very early interviews, pre-first album), Ian Mitchell Band, Last Touch, many more.
Includes discographies, biographies, family trees, press cuttings, much more. Unpublished in any other form. Photos were taken from one of no more than three surviving complete sets, and reflect the occasionally haphazard photocopying that characterized the series - however, all are readable, while the bmp/bitmap format allows the user to print and reconfigure pages at will.
Disc also includes a couple of unpublished issues, and color originals of several covers.

PRICE $15 + shipping: $1 USA, $2 international.
