Now I'm really getting confused. :-\

If TV is playing in York why are TUTS saying he is playing in Leeds? ::)

Mind you the TUTS think Elland is in leeds, so why not York.

Maybe they should change New York to New Leeds. ;D ;D ;D

I live in between Leeds and York so who cares.

Are you also thinking of playing Leeds Teev?

Manchester Star & Garter 25th March for TV + Valentines, now that`s nearer for me, just a bus ride away, 2 lads from work are coming with me for that one so after that gig maybe TV will have two more fans at least. They were that good at Rebellion I`m still going to drive to the York gig at the Duchess on the 23rd also ! well you don`t know when it will be that TV plays with a band this good again do ya!
Hoping to make the Wellinborough gig as well this thursday.

As long as the roads have been cleared of snow and ice, it should be ok to drive at minus degrees (I know wot I'm talking about, it's cold here too...). As long as it doesn't continue to snow and the roads don't freeze over again, there shouldn't be too many problems.  8)

Its been snowing very hard here all morning and the forecast is for it to continue and the temperature to drop to -10 tonight, so I'm not even going to try to go I'm afraid. Very sorry to miss the show and the chance to catch up with some of the TUTS, but I don't trust my driving in this awful weather. The curse of "Sawyers" strikes again as we missed this one last year due to the snow!

Okay TUTS...

It's just about a month away from the first 'Adverts' type tour since 1979.

Who's going to which gig?

Let's try and drum up a TUTS list!

I can feel the excitement mounting with each passing day.

Hey Teev, when in York check out The Pivni bar near The Shambles for some Brewdog and Thornbridge heaven. 8)

Smit was just asking me today which TUTS are going to which 'TV Best of The Adverts' gigs...

I'm up in the air too - but hopefully I can make Leamington Spa (as I really want to catch Cyanide Pills too), and I must go past Fred's house for that one?!! I might also see if I can be up North so I can pop into Rio's. Oh and Chris has said he wants to go too - so I'll see if I can pick him up too

Lancaster Yorkshire House onSunday March 20th looks good to us.  Anyone else planning to be there? Does anyone know whether it's necessary or advisable to buy tickets in advance, and if so, from whom?  I phoned the pub and they didn't seem to have a clue.

Take an Overground train to London Victoria station, change to a District or Circle Line tube to Embankment then change to a Northern Line tube to Camden. Venue is just outside the station. Travel time is about 90 minutes I'd guess. There are other ways to get to and from the venue, but the train is direct to Victoria and the last train back leaves Victoria at 00.07, meaning less worry about missing the last train and more time with TV and TUTS, which has got to be a good thing!

Post by: Gabumon on February 20, 2011, 11:10:37 AM
i think so

but the people where very still, no encore shouting and stuff, after the main set of the Undertones was a bit more, but not as much as in Germany.. fun thing the Manager of the Undertones asked me not to film anymore, after 45 minutes of the 60 minutes set  ;D ok, they was boring for me, and i didnt wanted to change the tape eiter.. ;D maybe because i didnt had more tapes with me, but he asked friendly, so thats not a problem, i know other bands (The Meteor, total boring crap in my eyes, they told us one times when we would film them that they will call the Police, ok we told their Manager that we gave a fuck about that stupid band  ;D ) Ok my Videocam have a Secret mode (and the manual says that it could be illegal in some countrys  ;D ) but i saw no reason to do that

weird that the Band told me that filming is ok..

Report from Leuvan Gig (East Kent Taff version)

Glad to report Mrs Fleags that Mr Fleags was in the epitome of best behaviour, if fact I only saw him with 1 drink in his hand at the bar at the gig.. and that was only maybe a half-pint.

My mate and I however found a decent bar in town, adjacent to its own brewery!!!!  We were given a menu when we sat down of all the ales on offer, my mate started on a 18%er, which was only 3.60 euros, I strted at 8% and moved up 3 steps (after all I am only allowed 2 pints with my pills!).

We made the gig by 8.20, with TV due on at 8.30.  I don't know if it was me, but I could not hear TV's vocals, but I thought The Valentimes were excellent.

The Undertones came on at 10pm, personly I thought they were excellent, my vantage point was "mush" between the singer and Michael, the only disapointment was them not playing Mars Bars, despite me "product placing" same against their monitors!!!  The first song of the encore was "Real Good" by the way.

I was also rather please that I took the trouble to take the sleeve notes from my CDs and managed to get them all signed, albeit "sans Sharkey"   returning to the bar Fleags and co had retired to their hotel, we left and headed back to ours, sad to say that the bar was still open!!!!  well it would be churlish to refuse wouldn't it??

A good time was had by me and my mate, Newcastle next for me, then London.

Think I'll be there for the Underworld gig, also the 100 Club thang in April.

Will try to rustle up some other grizzled SE London punks to come along, too.

...which I have done.

Have persuaded (not that it was an effort or nuffin) Tom from The Phobics + his luvverly missus and one or two others (work and/or babysitter commitments permitting) to come along, one of whom is picking up the tickets this Monday.

Work and football rules me out of all the other dates, sadly.

Really looking forward to March 29. Haven't been to The Underworld in ages, not since I last saw the Hanson Brothers there I think, and I really like the venue. It's a sweaty little cave of a place and for me, the gig can't come soon enough.

It's gonna be great  :)

Can't make 100 club as it clashes with the undertones at highbury garage.

Would like to have made it as THE SEX PISTOLS EXPERIENCE are absolutely incredible.You will be blown right back to 1977 with this lot(take a look at their website).

Quite happy to TJ if you are definately going to make it. Don't want to be left with an extra due to no show /weather etc.

To be honest I really don't think it will sell out for the reasons noted. None of the ticket shops in Brighton have any mention of the Adverts so I think it will be 2/3 full max.

Sure Tim could get you in on the guest list if absolutely desperate!!!

Up to you.

The Cast of Thousands songs out performing The Red Sea songs live! - Quite a shock that!
TV on cracking form.
The last song. Awesome!
Watching my favourite performance by an 'Adverts' guitarist.

And of course meeting Teev and Claret again.

Superb night at Bradford, got there just after 9 and TJ walked in a bit later just as support Cyanid Pills were starting their first number- good band these and well worth a listen, TJ likened them to Gen X which was an apt description.
I thought TV and the Valentines set would be the same as at Rebellion so no need to remember the set list, well we got most of Red Sea but no Lords Prayer or Good times are Back and from Cast of Thousands we got- My Place, Male Assault, Back from The Dead, Television`s Over, a superb version of I Surrender and the Brilliant Cast of Thousands- the latter got TJ into a hightened state of excitement !!
Roll on York !!

Dalek refers to Dr Who (not that i know much about it)?

Title: Cast of Thousands Live by T&V
Post by: Tj on March 19, 2011, 02:42:10 PM
Back in 2006 C5 wished for a UK Adverts tour. 

Back in 1999 I asked TV if he would ever play Cast of Thosands live again.

T&V deliver two-in-one!

"You get your miracle for just daring to ask."

"Anything is possible."

Dreams and wishes can come true.

still hope for Cast of Thousands

Gabumon 20.02.11

"Cast of Thousands" You got it Gaby! Cast of Thousands is my favourite ever Adverts song.

Title: TV's Over? - NEVER!!!!!!!!!!
Post by: Tj on March 19, 2011, 03:05:31 PM
I've had my first obsession with the song Television's Over since hearing it live at Bradford. I played it Over and Over and Over again yesterday.

Here's the Leamington Spa live version...  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAHWnX4__rE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAHWnX4__rE)

Cheers Alan. :D

What's blown me away and really resonated with me are some of the lyrics...

Quote
Let's take heart, see what lasts
Call it the truth

Now we stand on the shore
Now we stand on the edge of some adventure
Now we have to close our eyes
And jump
Now we have no guiding light
And all we see is our own sight
Take heart, take hope
Trust NOW
!

Confused by science?

Trust NOW.

I'll have a pint of whatever TJ's on! Really looking forward to York- we'll be in the Last Drop Inn before the gig if anyone's going. Stairs were always a good defence against Daleks. As for Cybermen or Ice Warriors-they really were scary.
2 questions-Have the gigs been well attended? and where's Leamington Spa?

Didn`t know you were going to York Gareth , will be great to see you there. there were only about 60 at
Bradford so it was maybe a good thing it was a very small venue. The only advertising I could see was a small section of a poster outside the club, but I don`t know if there was anything in the local press.

Leamington Spa no idea where it is - seemed to be Birmingham / Warwick way :) But great venue and I can thoroughly recommend it; SLF, the Beat  and Hugh Cornwall, amongst others, are booked to play over the next couple of months

Attendance was pretty good, although it was a big venue - I would guess up to around 200, but I am always a poor judge!

I've posted a further couple of Cyanide Pills numbers plus 'We Who Wait' up on youtube and all in glorious HD

Brilliant gig in York last night, decent turn out too. Great to meet up with TJ and Chris again. The set was pretty much the same as Alan's post above, but we also got Lord's Prayer and Good Times Are Back. Paul North, who is doing the merch stall, said there were around 250 in Bristol.
Title: Re: THE BEST OF THE ADVERTS TVSmith Valentines TUTS on Tour March 2011
Post by: Tj on March 24, 2011, 01:55:32 PM
ARREST THE NIGHT!

Third Time Lucky!

I counted 45 at Bradford and 30 at Hull (including band members).

I was hoping for shows of 200+.

I am an optimist. :D

The great news is that Cyanide Pills lead vocalist also told me about the 250 elated fans at Bristol and about how some old punks were crying tears of joy in the audience. :'( :D

The gig in Hull packed the bite of the BrewDog Tasty Blonde and Punk in Walters Bar but the low turnout hit the atmosphere despite the attempts of those that had the sense to attend. Wake up Punks of Hull. You missed a potential cracker!     

The third time lucky was at York.

A 120+ crowd was treated to an amazing performance by these 21st Century Best of The Adverts.

Even my wife Lisa said "TV put on an amazing show." She went on to talk about what a great entertainer he was. 

Having started drinking Elland in Leeds with Smit at 1:30pm I was suitably merry when my gang arrived at the venue at 10pm after delighting ourselves on the splendour of York that is The Maltings, Lion and The Lamb (of course), Pizza Express, BrewDog and Thornbridge in The Pivni and a Thornbridge festival in the Old White Swan.

It was great to meet up with Claret, GJ and Leigh Sayers and their family’s. I knew I’d let them down a bit turning up so late.

After a quick catch up it was time for The Great Man and his current Valentines.

…Gaye was back in London! ;)

All the band went for it from the first song. Bass and drums were tight and powerful. The guitarist was totally in the zone as his egoic energized performance would have had the mythical Ziggy Stardust in awe.

Yet it was TV himself who stole the show. The consummate entertainer had something to prove after the poor turn out at Hull.

…In fact I’d been told by Paul North that if I didn’t turn up with an army on homeground I’d be banned from future gigs as I was a bad luck curse!!!

…Ha! Manchester and Brighton here I come!

TV got up to some amazing antics on stage as he fought his mic stand and jacket. TV won the bout! No contest!

During Bombsite Boy Smit screamed in my ear “Where is Gabumon when you need him?” As if in answer TV shuffed the mic into my face as I took over Gabby role and bellowed out “Bombsite Boy!” on each chorus.

Again it was The Cast songs that stole the show. This album was now truly on equal footing with Red Sea.

After a cautious Red Sea start I ripped out my ear plugs at the first Cast of Thousands song and me and Smit jumped to front and centre and let fly.

This was The Adverts gigs I missed in 1978 and 1979. The circle was complete.

As Claret and Alan have already mentioned I get a bit excited when TV plays the song Cast of Thousands! This time I really went for it and when the song finished we all screamed more as if we were all True Believers TV would do a third encore.

But there were no other songs or were there?

I recalled Gabby writing a post about Lords Prayer and Good Times Are Back!

Time to pray!

On came the band with an awesome version of The Lords Prayer.

TV turned to walk off and I screamed “THE GOOD TIMES ARE BACK!”

Teev and The Valentines obliged.

THE GOOD TIMES ARE BACK my friends.

Miss this tour at your peril. I mean it maaan!  8)

Can`t really add anything to what TJ and GJ have said but it was a very pleasant supprise to get Good times are back- it really is a croud pleaser. Took my daughter Sophie and her 17 year old boyfriend Tom to York and after the first two numbers Tom thought TV was going to have a heart attack , I had a word and reassured him every performance is like that from start to finish, he obviously hadn`t seen a performer put in as much energy and passion into a set before- he was very impressed !!
This was a stunning gig though and I`d go as far as saying the best TV Smith one I`ve been to but I`ve got a feeling the one at the Star and Garter in Manchester is going to be a special one too.
Have to mention The Valentines contribution also, brilliant band with a great guitarist.

Claret

Have to agree with Tom to some degree!

I'm not sure if I've ever seen TV start a set with THAT MUCH passion and energy!

He definately puts more into it than he did in 1977 back when only The Clash out of all the ace Punk bands could compete with The Adverts live show.

Mind you the guitarist was keeping up with TV. It was like gas versus electricity to see who had the greatest energy power! At one point TV went nuclear!!! 8)

Lisa was also blown away by the gig.

...Today she was looking through all her photo's from the gig and started to tell me how good looking Claret is and how he always looks so tanned.  :-*

On the Official Damned Board (off-topic section) someone reviewed a gig and linked a photo.

Well, he was in fine old form last night in Hull... not what you'd call a huge crowd turn-out (notorious for that 'round here unfortunately... I once saw Alternative TV as part of a crowd of 7 .... yes, 7... paying punters!!!) but it was magic to hear TV belting out the old Ads numbers with a full band behind him. Highlights (although, let's be honest, the Adverts entire back catalogue is a highlight) were We Who Wait, Cast Of Thousands, Back From The Dead, Television's Over, On The Roof, I Surrender.... oh, you get the idea. And Tim, as ever, was his usual friendly approachable self... A massively underrated talent in Britain's punk/new wave past if you ask me Ads/Explorers/Cheap/solo... you name it...

Another cracker in Manchester last night, same set but sadly no "Good times" or "Lords prayer", the two lads I took from work didn`t know what to expect but halfway through the set one of them was right up at the front with the rest of the mosh pit! In terms of atmosphere this was the best gig of the three I`ve been to on this tour, must have been a sell out or close to it because the doorman bought my spare ticket off me!

"Let's be honest, the Adverts entire back catalogue is a highlight - A massively underrated talent"

...Too right!

If you read my reviews of Bradford, Hull and York, you get a real feel of what a difference a big entusiastic crowd makes to the show.

The other difference I've found is how many beers I have as Paul of North records thought Manchester was the best gig of the tour and a sober TJ is Manchester thought it was definately York.

...I'll be drinking in Brighton. ;)

Great news about the doorman and great to see your firey mate going for it in the moshpit!

I was even more impressed by the changes in your other mate who went from who's Tv Smith to a fan in one gig!!!

The night started with a drink in Chapeltown in the Lancashire hills and my satnav almost taking me down a road that would have left me 'stranded on my own'.

Drank NEW WAVE BrewDog Punk and Dark Star and Marble at the wonderful Marble Arch. What a belting pub! If only I’d been staying over in Manchester!

Had a good chat to Mars outside the Star and Garter about how this dream is a dream come true and how gutted he is that the Valentines drummer wasn’t able to make the tour for reasons beyond his control.

Yep! It's a cracking pub is the Marble Arch, GJ and Marble is definately part of the NEW WAVE of British quality ales.

Great to hear that you got the extra encore Fred.

It felt a bit like TV had already played Lords Prayer and Good Times Are Back for the TUTS (Me, Smit, Claret, GJ and Leigh Sayers) at York.

Although Manchester was a packed sell out of punks going ape shit to T&V, it felt much more like a pure Punk gig. Was this why he closed with The Adverts Cast of Thousands?

Blood, Stars and Guts!

The night started with a drink in Chapeltown in the Lancashire hills and my satnav almost taking me down a road that would have left me 'stranded on my own'.

Drank NEW WAVE BrewDog Punk and Dark Star and Marble at the wonderful Marble Arch. What a belting pub! If only I’d been staying over in Manchester!

Had a good chat to Mars outside the Star and Garter about how this dream is a dream come true and how gutted he is that the Valentines drummer wasn’t able to make the tour for reasons beyond his control.

Watching TV and Mars at York was like watching Ziggy Bowie and Rono The Spider from Mars as the more the other one goes for it the other seems to raise a gear.

“Come on get into the action!”

Inside it was great to meet Ste and Lee, the barmaid, Claret and his firey mates, the barmaid, TV, the barmaid and the sonic radio presenter.

Did I mention the barmaid?

I enjoyed the shows by the Rock’N’rolling Adjusters and the pure punk of Hi Fi Spitfire’s.

TV and The Valentines hit the stage with a wave of raw sound. TV was bursting with almost angry punk passion as he fought his mic again and kicked the amp.

An act that caused the sound to be even more raw punk as the wires, speakers and mic crackled through some of the later numbers.

At first it was just a few female punks dancing at the front, but within minutes it was an army of young and old punks pogoing about in the mosh-pit.

I’m happy that these mosh pit friendly battles were not around in ‘76 to ’78. I preferred the plain old pogo. The other thing I can’t quite get my head round (as the contents of a pint of lager splashed over my TV & The Valentines tour shirt) is why some insist on entering the mosh-pit with a full pint in there hands. Oh well! At least they weren’t wasting any new wave beers like BrewDog Punk and Marble ales.

TV responded to the mosh-pit and created his own personal mosh-pit on stage more Iggy than Ziggy as he climbed on top of the amplifiers and had hurled a tirade of abuse at technology has his mic faded in and out.

This show was pure entertainment.

Claret jumps into the mosh-pit! The sonic radio interviewer is by my side. He keeps beaming at me. He’s also living the dream! Finally watching again his teenage punk hero!

Bass and drums were as tight as ever and Mars was in Spiders Zone again.

Again The cast of Thousands songs at least held their own against that new wave power of the red sea. “What are you going to do with your new wave?” barked TV as he surfed the energy of the crowd.

And almost as soon as it begun it was over.

Claret’s mate who had joined the mosh-pit had been praying for Lord’s Prayer.

But tonight was a Punk Gig. Tonight was a night to show the World that The Adverts made TWO awesome punk albums.

TV’s energy had blown away the cat allergy and an exhausted Mars flashed me his blood dripping hands. They had all given their all for the cause. Punk Rock is alive and well!

Tonight was a battle won!

Gary Bushell – eat your heart out!

We mean it maan!!!!

CLARET JUMPS INTO THE MOSH PIT !!!
Well I had to do it ! I`m even worse at dancing to a beat than I am at singing, but after two sober gigs at Bradford and York tapping my foot and slightly shaking my head I let myself go at the Star, might have also had something to do with the copious amount of ale quaffed in Sinclairs taven off deansgate and a few more at various places on the way to the gig! plus I couldn`t let my mate Richard "the mosh pit monster" be up there on his own. I was working with Richard last night and he couldn`t stop purring about it, said he can`t remember having a better night than that in years, mind you we didn`t leave Manchester for home till about 3 in the morning.
It will be very interesting to ask TV after this tour which gig he thought was the best, the Star and Garter must be high on his list if not the best.

Too right Fred. Great post Christopher. Thanks for posting Claret.

These were my favourite lines in this ten star review!

Quote
Our Rating: :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D             

The Adverts' debut album is a strong contender for my favourite punk album of all time. The Adverts were always apart from their peers, demonstrating a degree of wit and eloquence not generally associated with the punk movement. The band gave the nihilistic punk template a unique twist and level of sophistication. 

From the second he arrives on stage, it's obvious he's not only the real deal, but, more importantly, doing this for all the right reasons. Addressing the obvious question of 'why now?' Smith delivers a brief rant and points out that the songs he wrote age 20 are as relevant now as then, if not more so. He's right, too: we've still got a crap government to rail against, and the media is the all-encompassing opium of the masses. This comeback, then, is a call to arms - it feels like the most vital thing I've witnessed in years.

Smith careers around the stage like a man possessed, high-kicking and cavorting here there and everywhere.

In The Valentines, Smith's found a band who don't just play, but feel the songs. It really does put so many of today's contemporary so-called punk acts to shame, and stands in stark contract with so many other comebacks. It would have been far more lucrative and high profile to have played a handful of festival dates, but playing hard and fast and with total conviction in a string of smaller venues seems just so much more true to the sprit of punk, and so much more sincere. Proof positive that it really is about the music and not the money.

The crowd go mental, and the oldest most-pit I've ever seen erupts, almost spilling onto the stage in the absence of a barrier. (TV asked for it to be removed - Tj)

The audience isn't going to let the band they've waited so many years to hear play again leave without an encore...

...or two. Having exhausted The Adverts material, the second encore sees Smith and The Valentines tear into the Lords of the New Church track 'The Lord's Prayer'. The band, and Smith in particular, looks to be having as much fun as the audience.

Tonight we saw a band on fire, and concrete proof that the spirit of '77 is most definitely alive and kicking.

Hi Folks
well the gig went really well...  Hi fi Spitfires + RPG played blindign sets ... i dropped my sticks on two songs and not having a monitor was making it hard work for me but we managed the set and people seemed to like the support bands too...

TVSmith and the Valentines ...wow ...   they treated us all to an amazing set .  They were all visibly tired from the long drive to Dundee , but when they got going they were on top form .     we were treated to Crossing the Red Sea Plus tracks from Cast of Thousands ....the set was amazing .
I was stuck at the merch stall at the back of the hall for most of the time so sadly the camera i had didnt work well on zoom ....but i know other people in the venue  filmed the gig- so there will be footage online soon id imagine , via Facebook.

the gig was a busy and TVsmith and the Valentines thrived on the feedback , it was obvious that this was a band who loved the music so much that they oozed with excitement once they got on stage .

At the soundcheck someone in the Valentines overheard one of the stage crew mentioning that maybe the ADVERTS wont be using a certain peice of equipment , and according to Tim the band member was really pleased to hear the name the Adverts being mentioned , not the Valentines .   it must have been weird hearing the band called the Adverts.
Anyhoo-- they played a great gig ...im shattered this morning tho ....VERY ..so id hate to think how TV and the bands feel too after days on the road .
much respect too everyone at the gig , and to everyone supporting TVSmith and the Valentines on tour !

I've been a fan of TV's music since I heard Live at the Roxy back in 78 but I'd never seen him  perform live until I saw him at Bristol.  I went with some trepidation - I guess I didn't want to be disappointed after living with his music for 30 odd years. I needn't have been worried!  All my heroes died while they were still alive, except for this one. The man's a legend. The Valentines were awesome. The memories are priceless. The highlights for me were Bombsite Boys and One Chord Wonders - I thought my mosh pit days were long gone but those songs dragged me back in like I was a Bored Teenager again. I'm still buzzin' a week later !

Hey! Alan, Wednesday is Brighton. ;) :D :D :D

Just been checking out Dark Star pubs in Brighton. Need a fix of The New Wave before the show. Looks like the Evening Star is the best bet.

Shall I meet you at the Hydrant venue Nick? It was once the The Hare and Hounds.

Great news that Fleag is coming along to Brighton. :D

I hope Sharon can play out too.

Evening Star is probably the closest pub 'of this type' to the venue (about a 10 min walk).

If you are a quality Lager man like myself then the Hydrant pub itself is more than adequate . Quite a good roomy pub for a few before going upstairs. Updated TV badge range of course will be with me!!!  I'm looking to be there from 8.

Thanks Fleag and Step (and Nick). This is my last post as I don't have internet connected to my moby.

You can however still e-mail me on tim@trueresults.co.uk (or call me on my moby if you have the number).

I'm working until 4pm in Maidstone Fleag. I'll go straight down to the Evening Star for a couple if you want. I guess I'll arrive around 5:30pm to 6:00p.m. (dependent on the traffic) and then drop my car off at my digs.

I'm going to book my ticket now.

See you soon TUTS. :D

What's great about all these new fans popping up is some of them might not know about his ten awesome solo albums.

TV on his home patch gave his all - and the Valentines gave it more !

I cant say much apart from hearing cast of 1000's live for the first time with band and finishing up with the 'good times' after tumultouse applause - I didnt do a setlist - I didnt video it - just wanted to enjoy the night - which me and a great crowd did.

Fuck - this will be hard to beat.... ever

Yes, all four of the Slaughterboy car crew were left grinning like idiots after an astonishing TV/Valentines stormer of a set.

New drummer? Not that you'd have noticed! The man was a human metronome, such was the fury of the no-note-missed assault on The Adverts finest hour or so...

Hope it's better than egg on toast (not that there's anything wrong with egg on toast).

Thanks for unwittingly coming out with the funniest comment of the evening, Alan!  ;)

Let me explain:

Before the gig, Fleags introduced Alan to us. He'd told us he'd booked into a real dodgy B&B in Kings Cross and was worried (as a veggie) what the breakfast might be like. After the gig, we all had a good old chat out on the pavement outside the Underworld. As Alan bade his farewells, remembering what he'd said about the hotel, I told Alan to take care and to '...watch out for the rats and fleas...'

'...I've never heard of them...'  

Said Alan, like they were some new, hot band to look out for!  ;D

Mind you...The Rats And Fleas is going to be the name of my band (the one I've been planning to form since 1976)  ;)   

It'll never happen...

Brighton was good. Not a bad turn out, even though one internet source had advertised it for the 31st (so I heard). It was great to hear all those Cast of Thousand songs. And even better to actually meet a couple of TUTS, namely Tj & Step. It was my pleasure to meet you, you came across as lovely people, which is not surprising being TV Smith fans. The only disappointment of the evening was that there were no medium size T-Shirts left for me to buy. Still Valerie was able to get one for herself so now she is officially hipper than me, ha ha.
Hi fi Spitrires were really good, punk in the old style, and what a great band the Valentines are.
Looking forward to Southampton tonight.  :)

I had a green T-shirt on towards the end when I got hot, but most of the time I had my black jacket on. I do remember you now fleags. Shame I did not realise it was you. I believe I saw you outside the venue as well when I was bidding farewell to Tj. I will know you for next time.

Verygood night but the crowd were a bit reserved. (hence no extra encore).

Tim on great form as usual.

good to see a few of you (Nick, fleags, Tj).

Now can I possibly get from the Undertones (Islington Garage ) to the 100 club in time for a bit of TV and The Sex Pistols experience?????  Very tempting.

Sorry to interrupt the man-love session here (  ;) ) but I've just been chatting on-line to a mate who runs a couple of shows on Radio Salford and it would appear that TV was on Steven Doyle's show (Steven's a good Punk Rock man and devotes a lot of time to local as well as national and international punk) and went down extremely well as you'd expect. Nice to hear.

Ok...let the cooing and preening re-commence luvvies!  :D

Post by: Nick on April 01, 2011, 10:47:00 AM
Southampton was a good night, well attended, & the sound was better than Brighton with the vocals a bit higher in the mix. But like Brighton the crowd were a bit subdued so no second encore of Lord's Prayer & Good Times Are Back.
We got there rather late so missed the first band (I think they were called The Reaktors) Hi-Fi Spitfires did a great set even though Steve's guitar string snapped during the first song. Then on came our star of the show who as usual gave 100%. It is so good to hear old songs like On The Roof, Newboys & On Wheels given the full punk rock treatment.
Paul, who was manning the merchandise stall, had his work cut out for him though as he had to repeatedly pull a drunken fan off the stage (there's always one). So well done Paul you are a star.  :)
I would like to end this with a request to join Fleag & Freds man's group as I made the faux pas of commenting on TV's winkle picker shoes, something, Valerie informed me afterwards, men shouldn't do.
So there you go a great end to the tour. TV on fine form & me discovering my feminine side.  ;D

Maybe you should have a look at http://www.bbc.co.uk/northamptonshire/content/articles/2005/10/04/kb_fact_fiction_feature.shtml, though I don't know if the factory that it was based on is still going, and my computer is going so slowly today that if I try to check, I'll still be here this time next week  ;)

But I digress ... Finally got back from Brighton, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in the wee small hors of this morning. Also as computer is like a snail on valium, I don't know if the set list has been the same all the way through (apart from Take That  ;)), so I thought I'd pop it on here ...

Boo hiss that there weren't many t~shirts left, but I suppose that's what we get for going at the end of the tour, and probably especially after the London gig.

Good to see Fleags, Steve and Hana, sorry we didn't get to meet other attending TUTS ...  :( Maybe next time  ;) I'm sure there will be many more next times (Or I most certainly HOPE there will be!)

Just hope the men's loos will be more convenient (no pun intended!  ;))

Just back from my South East and Midlands trip.

Great to meet Nick at last (mega thanks for the lift home mate - I finallt got back to my friends flat save and sound :D).

...And the Fishy one and Step and Fleag (and all his friends).

Come on then, what's this Take That joke?

From what I can remember at Brighton after the RCH Olg Slug Porter, Dark Star Hophead Citra and the 9% BreDog Hardcore I'm pretty sure I wasn't subdued at Brighton.

The gigs in order for me where...

1. York
2. Manchester
3. Brighton
4. Bradford
5. Hull

It seems to most depend on the size of the crowd.

...And how much i have to drink! :-[

T&V were awesome at every show.

The definate highlights were all The Cast songs, Back For Good ;), TV's Passionate Punk Performances, Mars energy and Spiders licks, the tight drum and bass, the Cyanide Pills and I'd like to echo a big thanks to Paul North for playing such a major role in this tour.

Great to see TV finding back so many old fans too.

A definate success all round. :D :D :D

I wonder what Teev's view of the UK tour is?

We're all waiting for new fans to post here and they are posting away on Facebook.

I am also still on a high after these gigs. For me southampton was better than Brighton because of the better sound quality. I said that I was looking forward to hearing the Cast songs live, but actually it was the Red Sea songs that made more of an impression on me, especially On Wheels, Newboys & Bombsite Boy.

Nero is a very bad videoconverter, Nero ist fast, but speed will put down the quality could you send me the Mpeg file?

How big is it?
