Title: COMING IN TO LAND ( LP2011)
Post by: Uli on October 27, 2010, 12:36:20 PM
Finally, as promised, here's a little info about TV's next album full of brand new songs.
Everything is still "tentative" at this point in time, so subject to change.

TV told me this new album should be out before the second part of the "80s demos" collection!
Recordings are (almost) finished. Tim Cross and Vom Ritchie are both involved.  8)

Ten of twelve tracks are already known to us fans through being performed live:
Us and them
Deactivate Autoslave
Worn Once
Probably
True Believers
Dawning of false hopes
Complaints Dept.
Man Down (in Martino)
Coming in to land
A Trouble to yourself

This is my 5900th post, so I thought it should be "special".  :)

Very special indeed Uli. Congratulations on your 5900th post. You are catching me up fast.

If we are talking about re-recordings, then I would like to see Impulse Buy, as It is one of my faves from Sparkle.  :)
Title: Re: TV Smith's next new studio album (2011)
Post by: Alan on November 06, 2010, 03:05:01 PM
I totally agree 'Impulse Buy' would be excellent - and I also like Gabumon's idea of 'Make Your Escape'... definitely looking forward to this one!
Title: Re: TV Smith's next new studio album (2011)
Post by: Uli on November 06, 2010, 04:48:00 PM
Well, I know which old song was re-recorded (and it's not Impulse Buy or Make Your Escape, sorry folks)!
With "No Message Please" and this we have reached 12 tracks (which are tentatively supposed to be on the final album).  8)
More later, to keep you all on your toes.  ;D
Title: Re: TV Smith's next new studio album (2011)
Post by: Uli on November 09, 2010, 02:37:03 PM
So today I will reveal which old track has been re-recorded for the next album!
It is a song found by "our own" Gabumon on an old Cheap tape! Well done, mate!  8)
HEADHUNTERS is the name of it.
Looking forward and all that.

This was posted by Nick elsewhere, I thought it fits in here:

Cool vid of Complaints dept Uli. I love that song. TV performed it at the southampton gig along with Worn Once. If those two songs are anything to go by then his new cd will be up to the usual brilliant standard. I think everyone will agree that TV Smith has never issued any sub-standard material ever.


Indeed. Different sounding as they are, each of his albums has something going for it.
I heard about 8 of the new songs, the NEW album really should be great as well!
Wonder what it'll sound like... more punk, more acoustic? Or something else?
Title: Re: TV Smith's next new studio album (2011)
Post by: Nick on November 09, 2010, 04:01:42 PM
Headhunters, I have not heard that song. Is there any footage of TV performing it anywhere? I am really looking forward to the new album. I feel like a child waiting for christmas  :)

Well, I'm not sure, I'd thought it was a new one. I hope it will be on the album.
Sure one day TV will confirm the tracklist, until then we can only guess.  :)

Headhunters, I have not heard that song. Is there any footage of TV performing it anywhere?

Haven't found any. Gabumon might have filmed it at a recent gig, so if he uploads this...

Nicht jeder der filmt, hat auch Kontakt zu TV. 98% der Live-Videos auf youtube dürften ohne Erlaubnis der Künstler gefilmt und hochgeladen worden sein.
(Dieses Lied gab es glaub ich auch schon lange auf yt, aufgenommen irgendwo in England.)

Yes. TV told me it will be similar to the album before, self-released but with the help of old friends. "Boss Tuneage" in UK and "Drumming Monkey" label in Germany.

No. But in my humble opinion it might happen in Spring. There's the Valentines tour dates in March & early April, after this there should be time for a solo tour to coincide with the album release (late April, May, June maybe?)...

Post by: Uli on December 04, 2010, 09:24:12 AM
Ey, that was just my idea when it might be released. Ask TV when he's going to release it & tour, if it's April, he might push it to May just for you.  :-*  ;)

Had a word with TV about the new album at Wellingborough on thurs night and he said provided there is no last minute gigs to fit in which would hamper his chances of working on it, the new album should be out in April.

Hello everyone! Long time no write/read!

I've had the enormous pleasure of performing on TV's new album. All I can say is that all of the songs on this album are total winners. I have dug every single TV Smith album but I think there's something very special about this new one. All the tracks are superb, the performances of all the other musicians are top notch, TV sings better than ever, it's varied but homogenic at the same time, and I think it will please everyone. I've been trying to figure out which my TOTAL favourite track is, and I've gone through 7 of them. This means 7 tracks that in my oppinion would deserve an A-side, a music video or the like.

Can't wait to listen to the finished product and I hope you will enjoy this album a small % of what I've enjoyed working on it!

Cheers to everyone!

BB

Hm, not sure about this, as he will be touring with a band (Valentines) in March...
Also, the only time he did something like that (I think) was in June 2006 when he toured with a band a few months after the release of MO.

Great to hear about the new album.

I already love it so much I named the first word in my new business after one of the songs.

Can't wait. 8)

Feb 2003? The album "Not a bad day" was released in Sep/Oct (autumn) if I remember it right...
How was he supposed to tour the album in February?  ???  Leaves one gig in December.
No wonder I'd forgotten about this, eh?  ;)

We'll have to wait and see if there'll be band gigs for the new album in 2011.  8)

I don't want to make you suffer more than you already are, but after listening to the unmastered mixes of the new studio album, I declare this is definitely the best TV Smith studio album in a VERY VERY LONG TIME!
Like I told you in the past, the weight of the songwriting is, to put it mildly, at least as good as it has been in the past, I'd say even better. But there's something about the way it sounds that makes it more alive, fresh and real than most of his other albums.

If you like it 50% of what I like it now, it will become an instant classic! Can't wait to read your reviews!

Hi Uli,
das kann schon sein, aber sie werden uns das auch erst dann mitteilen, wenn T.V. Smith die Infos freigibt.
Ich warte auch schon jeden Tag darauf auf der Hauptseite eine Ankündigung zu lesen, z. B. wie das Album heißen wird und wie das Cover aussieht.
Einen Teil der Songs haben wir ja bereits live gehört, und dass Vom Ritchie, Jonathan und Tim Cross mitspielen wissen wir doch auch schon. Das macht es natürlich kein Stück weniger spannend. ;-)

das kann schon sein, aber sie werden uns das auch erst dann mitteilen, wenn T.V. Smith die Infos freigibt.

Dann lies mal die alten Themen zu "Not a bad day" oder "MO" oder "In the arms...", da gab es durchaus Leute die vorab schon Aufnahmen hörten, die Trackliste kannten usw.
Ich hatte ja z.B. in Balingen auch von TV Infos zum nächsten Album erfahren, als hier kein Mensch davon geredet hat.  ;)

Before you ask, no I didn't receive a message of what the title was. ;) ;D ;D ;D

Ich hatte ja z.B. in Balingen auch von TV Infos zum nächsten Album erfahren, als hier kein Mensch davon geredet hat.  ;)

Jo, wenn er es denn selbst genau weiß, wird er es seinen Fans auch mitteilen, wem sonst ? "Gut Ding will Weile haben", hat meine Großmutter immer gesagt. :)

Und? Trotzdem ist es interessant vorab was zu hören (z.B. von bbquattro weiter oben!), sonst wäre dieser Thread nicht schon einige Seiten lang... Wenn Du das nicht willst, kannst Du ja auf die Website schauen, wo "nur" die offiziellen News kommen.

Inoffiziell sind private Mails und Gespräche, alles was hier im Forum steht kann jeder weltweit lesen. Ich bin übrigens genauso gespannt auf T.V. Smith neues Album, wie du, falls das noch nicht in meinen Postings ersichtlich war. ;D

Hier im Forum gibt es aber auch Gerüchte und Infos von Personen die bei den Aufnahmen anwesend waren, die nicht in den offiziellen News auftauchen. Theoretisch kann das jede(r) weltweit lesen, aber tun wird das nicht jede(r)...  ;D
Ich hab einen Link entdeckt mit Infos zum Album, den auch jeder lesen könnte (hat nur bisher kaum einer), soll ich den posten?

Yeah, that's it! You're right, but I did this before with the last album (2008) and Klaus wasn't too happy as he'd just planned to reveal the cover pic or something shortly after, so this spoiled the surprise a bit... That's why I'd decided to wait a few more hours, although it was hard.  :D

I just think people saying "I know something you don't know" (as we had previously on this topic) or "I heard these songs before you" is rather off-putting to the casual fan/visitor to this website and we could do without it. We should be trying to attract new fans/members who actually post and not have competitions between ourselves!

If I've done it before, I'll stop!

Rushed home at lunchtime and checked the letter box. Two parcels looked very promising. I soon noticed that one was floppy. :(

The other felt like a CD. :D

Mind you it felt a bit thick. >:(

I opened it to find the CD's of Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. Now normally I'd be real excited receiving the CD version of my favourite book as read by the author, but I was hoping to be Coming in to Land today. :'(

Oh! Well. Practive patience Tj.

Title: Impossible to Sustain?
Post by: Tj on April 16, 2011, 02:26:25 PM
Here's my second thoughts on this Magnificent Lion of an album.

Please do not read this if you want to hear the album fresh.  

Impossible to Sustain?

Always use the word impossible with the greatest of caution.


I seize the envelope from the postman "that looks like the one I'm waiting for!

I'm like a kid at Christmas.

I sit outside as the sun come shining through an open the kitchen window next to the CD player.

The sun blazes down as the Western begins anew.

Heaven!

Half way through Dawning of False Hopes I say out loud “Fucking hell! He’s exceeded himself with this one!”

Arms track plus first 3 Arms CD tracks

Meets

Concrete Skyline

Meets

Meets the all killer! No filler of March of the Giants    

Fused with

Sparkle in the Mud

WORN ONCE

Arms 2 – Western 60’s feel

TRUE BELIEVERS

Beverley Hill Billies meets Rolf Harris on a Concrete Skyline

PROBABLY

Perfect pop rock. “Pock!”

COMPLAINTS DEPT.

The grumpy old man warms up!

A hit? The sun comes shining through with arms whistling. A great Cross inspired production.

MAN DOWN

This will always remind me of Leigh Sayers. TV at his infectious tunes best.  

US AND THEM

Great ballad with beautiful piano from Tim Cross and sublime bass by BB Quatro.

DEACTIVATE AUTOSLAVE

The rocker! TV as outlaw! Motive as spell! A first class citizen.

HEADHUNTERS

Phantom of the opera meets Black Sabbath!

Nice one Gabumon! What a find!!!

A TROUBLE TO YOURSELF

A typical catchy TV verse with a soft flowing chorus.

DAWNING OF FALSE HOPES

Klaus’s favourite?

PURE GENEious!

Majestic!

Drowning On Dry land comes of age.

COMING IN TO LAND

Just when you think Dawning is the best track you get Coming in to Land!

Put in a call for guidance, TV’s Coming in to Land!

NO MESSAGE PLEASE

A Spanish feel to the final ballad.

“Impossible to Sustain?”

In 1977 TV Smith was Crossing The Red Sea with The Adverts in 2011 TV Smith is Coming in to Land…

Too fucking right!!!

Could this be TV Smith’s best ever album?

…Probably?

Post by: jock on April 16, 2011, 03:29:27 PM
First play of this album and im hooked on most songs allready , a few others will grow on me im sure , but for a first listen of a new album im very pleased !    Tim has cut no corners to deliver a fine work of art YET AGAIN !   

The guy is amazing ..i mean ..if you think of it ..all the albums he has recorded... from Adverts to today ...he knows all those songs ... that must be like learning a book off by heart word for word ... but thats not all...he then comes up with another album to add to his collection , and delivers the goods 100%  ... right on the button.

You have to take your hat off to someone of Tims calibre cos he brims with life...his words are allways so meaningfull and his music never seems to get tired unlike some musicians out there .   

Im off to play a gig soon ... i may just manage to get in another play of the new album before i head off ...  8)

Well King of all the Animals certainly made it on to the cover! ;) ;D ;D ;D

This album is too good and too short. I demand that it be a DOUBLE album. ;D

No, I'm very happy with the album and have no complaints. Except...

Guys,
 due to the fact that my dear old Mother-In-law is EXTREMELY ill and might need to go in to hospital I am not in a position to risk getting down to the 100 Club tonight. It would be bad if she needed transport etc. and I was out 'on the piss'.
 It's a real shame but I fear if I came I'd get a 'phonecall and, well, I hope you all understand me not making it. :(

Well i`ve managed 3 plays of this gem of an album so far and what a belter it is. Every song is great with Tim`s usual brilliantly put together lyrics and great musicianship from all involved. Standout tracks for me were( instantly) Worn once , True Believers (this track has "single" written all over it), Man Down and I love the big Production on the title track Coming in to land. But I should think that after a few more plays my
opinion will change so I`m leaving the favorite track vote till much later.
Right, quick review done I`m off to play it again now I`ve put it on my I-pod.

I know what you mean Claret, yet after seven plays I can now split the album in two excellence wise.

1. Every single song is excellent.

2. These are my favourites in order of the palylist: Worn, True, Probably, Man, Dawning and Coming.

Those six rank with TV's best ever songs in my book.  8)

Post by: Rockula on April 17, 2011, 02:06:40 PM
Current 'stand outs' for me are Worn Once with, I think, a similar 'Western' (not Country) feel to the title track of the previous album, Complaints Dept. which I already loved in the live version and 'Us And Them' with the suprisingly gentle vocal by Tim.

But it all may change. ;D

MY FAVOURITES (now that I can talk about them)

COMPLAINTS DEPT
There's some crazy bass shit happening all the time. I thought maybe it was too much but they kept all of it so I guess we're good! Vom is doing a lot of heavy tricks on the drums and the song has so much dynamics and the lyrics are so hillarious that you gotta LOVE this one!

TRUE BELIEVERS
I agree, this one has SINGLE stamped on the forehead.

US & THEM
A total challenge to play on something like this, I appreciate TJ's praise! Lyrics are superb, as always, (why.. is this happening? What's so wrong with some communication, between us and them?). It's so genius!

PROBABLY
Another one I thought I might have been a bit too busy, but I think it came out great in the end.

DEACTIVATE AUTOSLAVE
This song, structure-wise, reminds me so much of The Adverts. There's a lot of "weird parts" but it winds up being a hit single to sing along to with a beer in your hands.

Enjoy!!!

BBQ is right Deactivate Autoslave is a real Adverts / Second Class Citizen type rocker.

I'm surprised know one is talking about the catchy Man Down and the best two tracks on the album; Dawning of False Hopes and Coming in to Land.

Of course it would be boring if we all liked the same songs. For instance I skip Complaints Dept. (even though I do think it would make a great single).

Us and Them is a grower as are new songs like Trouble with Myself.

At least Klaus agrees with me about Dawning of False Hopes and Coming in to Land. :D

I like all of them for many different reasons. Recording this album at Tim Cross' with the supervision of TV himself is a highlight in my "career" and something I'll be proud of forevah. I wish I could do this more often, hanging out with genius people who know how to be genius and absolute fun at the same time!
I think this is an album worth spreading the word for!

Sure is Uli. The annoying thing at the moment is that my stereo is on the blink. It plays great for about half an hour & then starts giving the impression that the CD is scratched & skips bits etc. It's been like that for a few months now grrr. So I have only played it once. But I can agree with everyone else that is definitely up to TV's high standards & quality. That man doesn't know how to make a bad album. Stand out songs after one playing are Worn Once, True Believers & Coming In To Land.
Hope you get yours soon.  :)

BBQ

I appreciate what you mean BBQ, I used to dream of singing backing vocals on a TV Smith album. Now I'm just happy to have sung-a-long to a few of my favourite Explorers and 80's Demo's live in Yorkshire with TV.

I love the bass on this album. In parts it's as sublime as Stoner and he's my favourite bass player in the World. 8)

I truly am spreading the word BBQ. I really believe that these songs Sparkle like Sparkle and are all Giants like Giants. Time will tell, but at the moment it could turn out to be the best album in the world ever.

...Probably!  ;)

I agree TUTS the consistency of these songs is incredible.

I too have Trouble with Myself singing around in my head, Nick. Of course tunes (like circulating thoughts) are more the trouble with my mind.  ;)

I've just been chatting to Steffi on Facebook as she was saying with a smile that every new album by TV is the best album of all time.

I have to admit that she is right that every album since Useless* has got better than the one before it.

With Coming in to Land TV has taken the TV Smith guitarist punk energy of Misinformation Overload (particularly on Deactivate Autoslave and Headhunters) and fused it with the power pop infectious tunes on Sparkle in the Mud, Get It Now and Concrete Jungle (particularly on True Believers, Probably and Man Down) and the classy production of the track In The Arms of My Enemy (just listen to Warn Once to feel the connection) with the consistency of well produced high quality songs on March of The Giants (are Dawning of False Hopes and Coming in to Land the best produced TV Smith songs of all time?) and created an album that has finally done the impossible.

...Beaten Tj Sundown's phenomenally high expectations of a new TV Smith album.  :o

I short, I am in awe. 8)  

Quote
I really mean it Steffi when I say that this album is one of the best of all time. In my opinion it is a much better album than Immortal Rich, Generation Y, Not a Bad Day, *Useless, Misinformation Overload and In The Arms of My Enemy in terms of the consistent quality of songs with infectious tunes and spot on production. For me it's only rival songs wise is March of The Giants, Sparkle in the Mud and The Last Words of The Great Explorer. It's only rival production wise is March of The Giants and In The Arms of My Enemy. Overall it's between March of The Giants and Coming in to Land. ...Only time will tell. So far I'm still flying high about Coming in to Land.
There, that was my sensible answer.  ;)

Hallo Tuts,
ich schreibe in deutsch, weil ich das am besten kann.  :)

Tim hat sein Versprechen gehalten, und er hat ein wirklich großartiges Album  produziert. Ich bekam mein Exemplar gestern und habe es nun erst einmal vollständig durchgehört; muss das natürlich erst setzen lassen. Einen Großteil der Songs habe ich nun, wie so viele TUTS live gehört und muss deshalb zunächst meine Liveeindrücke mit der Studioaufnahme kompensieren. Das ist zum Beispiel bei ''Complaints Dept.'' nicht ganz so einfach. Denn Tims Show hat mich gerade bei diesem Song sehr beeindruckt.

Wenn ich das Album zum zwanzigsten Mal gehört habe kann ich dann eventuell sagen, welcher Song mir am besten gefällt, aber auch nur vielleicht, weil es von meiner Tageslaune abhängt. Mal mag ich die Balladen mehr, mal die rockigen Titel. Bei manchen Songs von T.V. Smith habe ich manche einzelne Passagen immer wieder zurückgespult und bisher mehr als hundert mal gehört, weil mir zum Beispiel einfach nur gefiel wie er das Wort ''Horizon'' singt. Auf jeden Fall gibt mir seine Musik sehr viel Lebensfreude und immer wieder neue Energie. Dafür bedanke ich mich.
Grüßle
Ilona

Good idea Gabumon, gotta keep these treasures!!

Well, yes, the new album is great, very good songs and all that!!!  :)
It starts off brilliantly with "Worn Once", good song with a clear 'message'.
One of my (many) faves is the title track "Coming in to land", no surprise here, as I loved it since first hearing it live in Oct 2010.
"Man Down" and "Deactivate Autoslave" have also left behind a great (first) impression!
Gotta admit the production is a little bit "poppy" on a few tracks (True Believers e.g.), but as I know you're all huge Take That fans, it's good for ya!  ;)  ;D

Yes, he's done that since "Crossing the red sea", didn't he? New church, Lion & lamb, etc. etc.!
However some of the new songs seem to be aimed at "over-religious" people who take it a notch too far, those "True Believers" who want to hear "No message please" (at least not from other people than their gurus)...  ;)

This album just seems to become better and better each time I play it! Fabulous!

Some songs have great catchy tunes, some even an infectious groove (I understand what you meant about dancing Tj!), all of them have good lyrics.
Interesting, "twangy" guitar sound on some tracks. Great bass playing by bbquattro on all of them, powerful drums by Vom! Tim Cross once again adding wonderful keyboard sounds! What more could you want? (Theremin and additional guitar/banjo maybe?)  :)

The bass line in "Trouble to yourself" in parts reminds me a little bit of "Cast of thousands"! (Was this deliberate?)

Tj's favourite 3 songs in the World today.

http://www.amazon.de/Coming-In-To-Land/dp/B004SJP2S4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302439030&sr=8-1 (http://www.amazon.de/Coming-In-To-Land/dp/B004SJP2S4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302439030&sr=8-1)

1. Dawning of False Hopes - Pure GENEious featuring TV's best vocals since March of The Giants.

"Someoneone show me a sign
That I'm on the right road
And haven't spent half my life in darkness
The rest with one eye closed
Give me some light"

2. Coming in to Land - I agree with Klaus that this is a dream production. This one seems to be growing on all the TUTS.

"Put in a call for guidance"
"Clear the runway"
TV SMITH is Coming in to Land

3. True Believers - Bonkers! But it works! Just watch me bounce!!!!!! Now why do I think Tim Cross had a big hand in this one?

"We're the True Believers"

A song well worth naming your company after. 8)

Yet more True Results from TV Smith. ...Will it out March The Giants?

Gave it a true litmus-test on Tuesday: Played it to Mrs. Slaughterboy!

She loves it!!  ;D

She does, however, have an ear for things that I sometimes don't.

She thinks TV sounds a bit like Fergal Sharkey on 'A Trouble To Yourself', which I think she's got a point on. Also, she thinks there's something a bit 'Bruce Springstein-Dancing In The Dark' about the keyboard on 'Man Down'.

I have to admit that I had to help her come to these conclusions as what she actually said was '...Ooh, ee sounds a bit like that geezer...y'know...the Irish bloke?...used to be in a band?...'. Me: '...Fergal Sharkey?...' Mrs.S: '...Dass 'im!...'.

Etc.  ::)

The important thing is that she likes it and wants to go and see TV again someday (she saw him play a very short set once before) which is good cos she doesn't like go to gigs anymore because she's developed a phobia of crowds which, as I've assured her, is rarely a problem at TV's gigs.

In England, at least.

I know we here do our bit but, in general, nowhere near enough people get along to TV's gigs.

Apathy rules here , sadly.

It depends - some gigs (e.g. with Bored Teenagers) got decent crowds. Some solo gigs have 25 people in...
Yeah should be more, but then again TV gives his best if there's one person who came to hear him.  :)

Did anyone else hear the theremin on the new album? I can hear it clearly near the end of one track...

Over to Babelfish:

" Coming in tons of Land" - the new CD of TV Smith To 06.05. label appears „Drumming Monkey record “the new solo album of our friend of many years, TV Smith on Voms. With its used biting and cynical texts TV Smith argues again with the current situation in the world. At present it tourt with its new song in the luggage by Europe and had shortly before its appearance in Lyon still time for an interview: You are for a long time also of friendly and in the last years your solo plates also on its label “Drumming Monkey record” published. Do you know still, when and how you became acquainted of? The first meeting also of one does not forget! It was on a trousers concert in Berlin. They had asked me to play as support with them and of were at the time still the Drumroadie. I had never met it in England, but after I conversed a few minutes with him, I had felt, as if I would have already known him my life long. Or longer. You always took up your last plates with friends and old way companions. Who was country” also in the studio with “Coming in tons? That was this mark again like that, because I had gladly different musicians on my album, in order to complete the songs, but I work only with friends. Apart from it the LINE UP is flexible, it arrives on who fits the style the new song. This mark plays from naturally the Schlagzeug, then have I Tim CROSS again at the key board - it participated so quite in each album, which I made since „The automatic data processing RTS “- and because this album has more energy compared with its predecessors somewhat, I have B.B.Quattro of the Spanish Pop Punk volume „Suzi & Loosely Quattro “in demand whether it would like to play bass. Before a few years it played live bass for me with „The Bored of teenager “, where we played excluding automatic data processing RTS of song and it was greatly. I knew, I him a daily on one of my albums would have wanted and this Songauswahl was simply perfect for its style. The guitars plays I on this album all. I wanted to hold in the small, close circle. Another friend from that volume „The Men They Couldn' t tendency “plays banjo with a few numbers and a Finnish friend, whom I met in Germany, when he supportet with its volumes „Tigerbombs “of and me, play Theremin with the Titelsong. In addition it mixed the album in its small studio in the snow-covered wilderness of Finland - a very special atmosphere gives the plate. In your songs argues you strongly with the current situation in the world. How does the Songwriting run with you, where and how you get you the inspiration for your texts? I try to be honest therefore I look at myself, what happens and tries, the propaganda and the lies, which our way of thinking, affect, to cut off. Then I take what remains remaining and tries to press something poetry from it. And if I have luck, I find also a killer melody, which fits. What at that time induced you to create „The automatic data processing RTS “? At a certain event (e.g. concert) or was can it be fastened plain and simply from the spirit of the time at that time - which has with you the excursion given? I already was in a few volume before the automatic data processing RTS - I had at school created first, then I went for one year on the academy of art and the whole time to my next volume worked. But it brought to nothing, it was simply the wrong time. I do not know whether it was luck or whether I had felt that there which comes new, but I am exactly at the right time - in the summer 1976 - straight to London pulled, suitably the reason of the Punkszene. I do not believe that we would have had success without this scene at all, but it is also true that it would not have given Punkszene without the automatic data processing RTS and all other volume like us. How is the feeling with “Crossing The does talk Sea With The automatic data processing RTS” an album to have taken up, which is also 33 years in demand for the publication still and a classical author of music history? Do you play old song like “Gary the Gilmore's Eyes” and “One Chord Wonders” still gladly? I love it still to play this song and I believe also that they function still, the texts feel still just as relevantly as at that time, perhaps even still more relevant. I do not think for playing that it could ever bore me, it and I am proud something to have created which has so long existence and so a large effect on the lives of many humans had. Much better it does not go. Assumed you take up a Mixtape for friends, who song may not be missing and why are they you important? I can never answer that in interviews. Asks me once again, if I had a few beers and in Voms cellar bar sit! Do you still often go on concerts and do pursue the current happening in the music scene? Which volume impressed you last? I play 120 Gigs in the year, write new of song and do not take her to up I have thus not much time, in order rauszugehen and me volume to look at. I see many good of volume, me to supports, natural and also a few bad. But the concept " newest Entwicklungen" in the reference to music bore me, if I am honest. Music comes from the inside to do that nothing with trends and mode and the music industry pusht continuously volume, which it simply do not earn to get the attention in the media it got. Most good music happens in the underground. On the other hand the last album, which I had bought, was Arcade Fire, which appear on major Label and went on number unity. Embarrassingly.

First (german) reviews found...

Ein neues TV Smith Album ist wie nach Hause kommen. Seine politisch motivierten Pop-Hymen mit Singer-Songwriter Flair ergreifen mich immer wieder. Neben dem artverwandten Ed Kuepper für mich einfach der beste Mann an der Gitarre und Gesang. Sein 2011er Album hat 12 Songs, entstanden unter Mitarbeit von Freunden wie z.b. BB Quattro (u.a. Bored Teenagers), Tim Cross (Adverts) und Ritchie (Hosen), die begeistern. Es klingt aus einem Guß, fetziger als zuletzt, alle Songs sind voll instrumentiert (inkl. Piano, Bläser und ein wenig Keyboard), der Wut im Bauch Tribute gezollt! Gemischt hat´s der Tiger Bombs Mann Jarkko Heiniö. Home sweet Home!

Tv Smith hat hier wieder ein Album gemacht, was voll auf die Zwölf geht. Mit seiner Art Texte zu schreiben, bringt er kritische Aspekte des Lebens voll ein und kommt mit eingängigen Melodien dem Hörer sehr schnell nah.
Headhunters, Worn Once geben sofort das Gefühl, die Regler auf Maximum zu stellen, Man down und Coming in to Land machen Lust auf Livekonzerte, hoffentlich auch bald wieder in Berlin. Auch andere Bereiche des alltäglichen Lebens True Believers, No Message... klingen einfach nur gut.

What do Fab's and the other German reviews say Uli? Just a summary would be great. :D

Complaints Dept. is my most skipped track. In fact, come to think of it, it's my only regularly skipped track.

I cahteed with Smit about the album when I went to stay with him on teh way back from a business trip to Maidstone. He loves Coming in to Land and Dawning of False Hopes best - as does me and Klaus. He also loves True Believers and actually thought it was an old 80's Demo at first. A song loved by me and Claret.

So my Fab 3 are still...

Quote
TeVauSchmidt ist in diesem überdrehten und selbstgefälligen Musikzirkus eine angenehm unprätentiöse Konstante, macht er doch seit 35 Jahren Musik auf höchstem Niveau, schreibt genial-zynische Texte und betätigt sich dabei als kluger, humoriger und umsichtiger Beobachter der Welt (und ihrer Auswüchse).
Angefangen bei den Adverts, dann bei den Explorers und seit vielen, vielen Jahren solo überzeugt Herr Smith mit tollen Platten und ergreifenden (musikalisch) und sympathischen (menschlich) Auftritten.
„Coming in to land“ gehört nicht zu seinen bestechendsten Werken, denn trotz kompetenter Begleit-Kombo (Vom/Tote Hosen, BB Quatro/Suzy & Los Quattros, Tim Cross (Adverts!!!)) wirkt das Album bisweilen etwas zahnlos, nicht jedes Experiment glückt („A trouble to yourself“) und auch wenn man sowieso keine Punkrock-Platte erwartete sind doch in Summe etwas zuviele Stücke arg ruhig geraten.
Zwar sind auch Hits am Start („Man down“, „Deactiwate Autoslave“), aber in seiner Gesamtheit wirkt das nicht gewohnt homogen. Da waren „Misinformation Overload“ oder „In the arms of my enemy“ beispielsweise deutlich bissiger.

Quite disappointing this one. Says that the previous albums were better, with more "bite" etc. (which I don't think is really true, though MO sounded a bit harder, punkier). Too many "quiet" songs (I don't agree)? Claims "a trouble to yourself" is an experiment which didn't work etc.  ??? (Their general view on TV is pretty okay though!)
I'm not going to buy any issues of "Moloko-plus" fanzine, based on the "quality" of this review.  :P

TV war nie einer derer, die sich die Welt schön geredet haben. Im Gegenteil: Es spricht das an, was andere vielleicht wissen, aber nicht auszusprechen wagen. Und das auf seine eigene bissige und zynische Art und Weise. „Coming in to land“ steht den Vorgängerwerken in nichts nach und ist zugleich aktuell wie nie. Wer sich bereits mit den Vorgängeralben anfreunden konnte, den wird „Coming in to land“ nach mehrmaligem Durchhören mit Sicherheit nicht enttäuschen. Anspieltipps? „The Drawing of false hopes“ und „Probably“!

This one's better (a few typos though - drawing of false hopes?).
The text at the top (not quoted here!) states something like TV has been going out with his acoustic guitar since the mid-70's (which is not quite correct).

I can see the angle they are coming from Uli. This album is far more infectiously catchy and some may call this power pop.

I thought it only really had two slow songs, but then it's only got two full on rockers.

Ahem, a little late getting my copy of the new album (my own fault), anyways, worth the wait needless to say and so far all the songs got the thumbs up from me but the songs that initially stick in my head most strongly are; Headhunters; Deactivate Autoslave; Coming Into Land; and Trouble To Yourself

Bit of an 'average' review for a brilliant album I thought. But obviously, being fans, we're going to be biased.

Not too shabby a review I s'pose but the bit about Complaints Dept going '...into JCC territory...' irked me a bit, as if Clarke had the monopoly on humour in music. I've always thought that TV's lyrics were rich with irony and humour. Lazy journalism if you ask me: if the same guy was reviewing a JCC album and there was a tough, no-nonsense track lamenting an uncaring society, bet he wouldn't describe it as '...TV Smith-esque...' now would he?

Excuse me if I'm ranting a bit, only  I'm old and grumpy and I've not had enough sleep. Obviously!  ::)

Vive Le Rock in the printed magazine describes the album as "TV's most confident (album) yet..... refreshing approach....the Dylan of the punk generation.... a potent musical and lyrical vision of the modern age!" and scores it 8 out of 10

The new issue of german "Rolling Stone" forgets to list Crossing the red sea" among their list of "50 important punk albums", but they make up for it by reviewing the new album!  :)
http://www.rollingstone.de/das-heft/aktuelle-ausgabe/article104239/Juli-2011.html
I guess it's not online (yet), so I will quote a bit (translated):
they say lots of people bow down before TV incl. DTH and Rollins, they say his lyrical strength shows in many songs on his new album. They think that it's not a repeat of punk, it sounds more like "indie-folk-rock" of the late 90's and then close with the words "Gutes Album!".  8)

Es ist ein sehr gutes Album! Mich wundert nur immer wieder, dass sich Musikjournalisten anscheinend nur profilieren können, wenn sie alles in Schubladen stecken. Was zum Teufel ist nun wieder "indie-folk-rock"?

...so damn catchy – it draws you in but then the lyrics bite; a really accomplished release.

If Smith was able or fortunate enough to garner some mainstream press support then with the right push this release would propel him into the public consciousness; ‘True Believers’ could easily grace any national playlist – correction SHOULD grace any playlist, at which point TV Smith would have come into land.

One of the best albums ever made by anyone... ever!

Gotta say, I don't listen to it in the car, I'd rather enjoy it at home over the (bigger) speakers.  :)

But one time I drove another car and put the CD in, Chrissie said to me it sounds "spectacular". Gotta agree, the whole production and SOUND of this album is top-notch!  8)

A friend who used to do a bit of sound engineering for Fugazi amongst others heard the album in my car the other day and said:

"...Bloody hell...who's this?..."

I told him who. After getting his head around the difference between the TV Smith he'd seen previously with just a guitar and the LP-version-with-band, he said:

"...The sound is brilliant...Whoever engineered it needs a pat on the back!..."  :)
