TV Live / Setlists
« on: November 05, 2018, 04:42:42 PM »
I have now updated the set-lists for 2018. But, we are missing  6.  being   Northwich,  Bolton, Nottingham, Johannesberg, Exeter & Rebellion, If any has seen them listed anywhere, please let me know.

I have also added a few "nerdy bits"/Trivia etc.  Please note that these are purely taken from the set-lists published..  So, obviously songs MAY have been played at gigs were set-lists have not been published.

TV Chat / TV Quiz
« on: May 30, 2018, 10:56:42 AM »
Ok then my fellow forumites, this one is for you and I have put it in "news" although it also covers "Gigs & Songs".

Basically you can blame both Tim and TJ (remember him?) oh yes and a few pints of York's finest ales, but I digress...

At the aforesaid gig in York recently, I was asked if I knew how many songs TV had played for us over his career and so.. pen in hand (well pencil actually), I have worked my way through the setlists published on the site extracting all the songs.

And so dear bretheren and holy collective, it leads to a quiz.

So, now this is based purely on the setlists published on the forum up to the end of 2017 and, unfortunately there are several missing (234 to be precise), there are a couple of errors in the listings, like duplicate listing of songs or "partial lists", so before anyone gets too pedantic..


Ok here we go.


1)  What are the top 3 songs that TV has played?


Ok, so that's a easy one.. they get harder..


2)  How many countries has TV played in?


3)  How many gigs has TV played?


4)  How many songs has TV sung?  This does not include "soundchecks" as they are not listed (see I am covering all possible arguments!)


5)  There are 8 "covers" on the list, I could be nasty and ask you to name them.   oh sod-it..  name them?


6)  There are 2 songs listed, but they are neither songs nor "spoken word" (so 1 is not Punk Rock Poem) any idea?


7)  How may different TV songs are listed?


Ok then, lets see how you get on, there are of course no prizes (apart from a worn out pencil, but that's another story)

World Of TUTS / Mike Peters
« on: March 19, 2018, 01:30:20 PM »
Announcement: It is with regret that all remaining dates of The Alarm German Tour 2018 have been called off due to the sudden and unexpected ill health of singer Mike Peters.
Dates will be rescheduled and more information for existing ticket holders will be released through the venue and promoter communication systems in due course.
Mike began feeling unwell on the morning of the Hamburg show although was strong enough to be able to complete the performance in the Sold Out Venue.
During the soundcheck at the Music Hall in Worpswede, it became clear that Mike would not be able to work his way through a full set. Rather than cancel at such a late stage, Mike agreed to perform a ‘storytellers’ concert so that the many fans (some of whom had travelled from Denmark and further afield), would not go home empty handed.
By today, it was hoped that Mike would make a recovery, but sadly his condition deteriorated further and so this morning was admitted into hospital in Germany where doctors have advised that the tour be cancelled so that Mike can travel back to the U.K. in order to receive medication and time to recover properly.
Once again we can only apologise for this turn of events and hope that no one has been truly inconvenienced. The decision to cancel was not taken lightly and ultimately driven by medical advice.
Thank You for your understanding and please stay tuned for information in regard to rescheduled dates.

World Of TUTS / Collaborations
« on: September 25, 2017, 12:58:11 PM »
Playing on the CD thingy in our car at present (well not as "present", as I am the office and the car is in the car park..  Just let me get that one in before Fred gets pedantic!!!)..  is Suzt & Los Quartos.

Now Mrs Taff quite likes them  and ask me how TV & L.Q.. first got together, also the meeting of TV & Vom was mentioned..

I am sure that there was an interview with Vom on the site somewhere, but I cant find it at the mo. 

Any helpers please....

World Of TUTS / Pop Quiz
« on: September 22, 2014, 01:48:30 PM »
Here is a link to an excellent Pop quiz that I took part in for the first time a few weeks ago.

A new "league" starts next Sunday Sept 28th at 1200hrs and runs for 12 weeks and is a very electic mix of easy questions and damn right stinkers.

Any how the link is  http://www.jonkutner.com/quiz/

When/if you join you need to have a "log-in name"  how about we use a TV Song title?, then we would each then know how we are doing.  I will try and monitor it and try and sort out our own "mini-league"..  which, of course, our German members will win!!!!

I bagsy "Lion & The Lamb" for my log in..
