Wow! That's rocket fuel Jock. 8)

I'm back playing March of The Giants and Not A Bad Day.

TV inspires me to fly to new heights. Each play is as rich as the first.

YOU ROCK TV.  8)

It's good to be back.  :D

YEAH! Absolutely agree here.  :D
And a brandnew album is just about to be released. What more could you ask for?
I'm sure it will be quality as much as the previous ones.  :)

Totally agree - totally amazing.

What I love is singing (?!) along with one of his songs and having to stop to smile / chuckle / think about one of the lines - and the really amazing thing is it happens all the time!

Cheers Folks ! 

the thing is there are so many brilliant bands, such as the RuTs ..they were also one of my top bands ,and  still are.  I can NEVER tire of hearing their music . 

The Pistols too , the Bollocks is  an amazing album .

i cant help from wallow in the music and im so happy to have caught up with TV at Blackpool in 96
cos that year changed the rest of my life for ever .  i took a different direction after 96 ..i seen the power
of an  Accoustic guitar ,  what a gig !


see you all soon im sure ...

Having been away from this site for FAR too long (life has been...interesting), I just thought I'd pop in and say that young Jock is absolutely right. There are plenty of wonderful musicians out there (I saw Sonic Youth in Sydney last night - what an awesome experience that was) but having quite recently discovered the post-Adverts TV, I just can't let go of what a brilliant songwriter and artist he is. His work is never far from my ears (or my little girl's - Tim is the one musician she just loves and wants to sing along with - "teach me that bit about the green train, Daddy").

Very few people have ever really changed my life. TV is probably the only one to have done it twice. Not a bad effort for some English geezer with a guitar.

It's nice to be back. I might stick around again for a while (though not much longer just now - it's nearly midnight in this silly bit of the world).

The (nearly) amazing Willi

Awww, thanks everyone.

It was particularly nice to pop back in tonight and see the (dare I say it) amazing new album cover.

It's funny how, of all the music I play at home and in the car, TV's is the only stuff my little girl really listens to. I was playing Cheap the other day and there was the line (in Beauty Treatment, I think) about water that tastes like wine. That got my girl going "Yuck! Water that tastes like wine. That would be awful if I went to get a drink of water from the fridge and it tasted like wine, etc. etc." (for the next 10 minutes.

Yep, like I said, TV's lyrics make you think - however old you are!

That's amazing only last night I was listening to TV and I thought to myself...

"However old you are!"

Caught TV at Shoreham last Sat and wot a corker it was!!!
Plenty of adverts tunes thrown in in the set which lasted for 70 mins.

About 4 off the new album played too and they were instant classic ('Weak Glue 'sticks in the mind,  sorry about the pun!!).

Re top singer songwriter I would have to place Ian McNabb, Philip Jeays, Jackie Leven, Andy White in the same bracket. all tremendous underrated talents.

Couldn't agree more. An artist this honest is rare today.

Integrity is his middle name. Just check out the wonderful Red Sea Jonathan Vidal interview to see what I mean.

...What do you mean his middle name is Vision? ;D
