Guess, TV never watched television a lot.

And rightly so, actually!!!
I did watch some television and I liked Magnum and Miami Vice back in the 80's! Magnum, a red Ferrari, beer and Hawaii, you can't beat that, ha ha... Miami Vice sometimes had good music in it...

I still sometimes watch, but most of the time I get extremely bored (if it's not a very good film), I can't count anymore how often I turned the shit off and put on some good music...

TV Chat / concerts etc.

Thanx for your report about the Pistols, of course I hope they're still great live. I met some people who saw them in '96, most of them didn't seem to regret it at least. (One of them played the live album to me, it sounded quite okay...) They WILL do the Bollocks stuff for sure (what else are they legends for?)!
Has Blackpool a good set of bands this year? I never went, 'cause this kind of nostalgia isn't worth me travelling for miles, even though I'm sure I would like some of the bands there.
Yeah, I can't wait anymore till I get to see The Damned again, it's been almost two years now since their German tour (I watched 3 gigs and one was among the best I'd ever seen). They seem to be at another peak in their long career with that great new album. Maybe they'll be touring Germany later in the year but I still plan a trip to London to see them and possibly a few other concerts.
I always find something interesting in London, btw that's how I found out about TV Smith, I just went to his gig in late '99, which turned me into a big fan (I'd only known the Adverts and Cheap CD's up to then)!

TV Chat / Pistols and others
« on: May 15, 2002, 08:15:55 AM »
Hi Jock,
no problem, I can see your point, too!
i just think that the Pistols are a bit (!) overrated. They only did one album plus a few extra songs (some good, some not). Yet they were offered millions for reunions while the bands who kept punk music alive by records and touring (e.g. Ramones, Damned and others) weren't getting such amounts. (That's showbiz...)
And you know, it seems a little bit like the Pistols turn into those boring old farts playing their old stuff, something they despised so much when they started out.

I think it has a bit of relevance if people in a band get on or not because I guess the music gets better if they understand each other! But on the other hand, maybe the Pistols' music gets better if they hate each other... :lol:
I read an interview with John Lydon in which he said about the '96 tour that he regretted his decision to do it about halfway through! Apparently he went up to the others and told them that he doesn't like them and they told him that they dislike him too! He complained that no-one said goodbye to him after the last show of the tour... Not the best circumstances for a friendly reunion! But I guess a one-off show is better for them than a whole tour.
I understand you (and many others) wanna see them once again (or for the first time). Probably I'll be in London in July, maybe I'd go and see the Pistols if there wasn't another gig (The Cure) on the same day (it was July 27th, right?)...
Actually I wanna go and see The Damned (I really love the new album and wanna hear the songs live), they seem to be getting on still (yeah, it's not the original line-up...)!
Of course I hope that the Pistols tickets will sell and you will enjoy the show!  :)

TV Live / Hamburg

Have to tell you quickly: Viola sent me a mail, Hamburg went well even though there weren't too many people in, TV played 41 songs (again)!! He seems to be in good form!  :)

TV Chat / Old socks!

When the Pistols already are old socks, TV's still around doing his thing, I am sure. :D

Don't you think the Pistols ARE old socks already now??  :lol:
Tv seems to be at a peak, when you look at how long he is playing at his current shows! (How many new songs will the Pistols be offering? None, they didn't get on in '77, they didn't like each other in '96, they will still not get on in '02...)
But I can understand people wanting to see them (for the first time or one more time).  :)

TV Chat / Channel 5
« on: May 14, 2002, 10:30:05 AM »
No, you're not boring (yet)! Btw, I ordered my Channel 5 copy from Ozitrecords, hope it will arrive soon. I listened to the album from another fan two years ago, as I said before I wasn't completely knocked out by it, but of course I buy it because I want to be "complete" with TV's albums and your "promotion" for this album on here has worked in a way too... (But I'm not sure if I will ever view it as his greatest moment.) Don't worry, if I don't like it at first, I will give it more listens before condemning it!  :wink:

Hey, I would go if the Pistols supported TV on this night!!! That's the way it should be!  :wink:

TV Live / Phew...

Phew... I hope so... Glad if anyone likes it...  :)

TV Live / Wrong
« on: May 13, 2002, 10:50:36 AM »
Ooops, so I guess I was wrong... Maybe it came about because "I will walk you home" would fit as the last song! I guess he wanted it as the last one but then after all the cheering he did another encore! So my review is false at that point, but nevermind...  :)

TV Live / Setliste
« on: May 11, 2002, 01:34:24 PM »
Hm, ja bin auch nicht mehr sicher was die Setliste betrifft, andererseits dachte ich dass "I will walk you home" ja sehr gut an den Schluss passt. Irgendwie bin ich aber echt nicht sicher ob nicht doch "Can't Pay Won't Pay" das letzte Stück war...  :?

Ups, Du wolltest Wolfgang bekleben? Da hat er sich wohl nicht gefreut, oder?  :wink:

TV Live / Danke

Hey, danke für den Bericht, freut mich dass es sich erneut gelohnt hat für Dich ein Stück weit zu fahren!!!

I was there to! I was the guy with the Hawaiishirt who hopped around so crazy. ;-))

Hi, I recall you, I was the one who told TV to sign your head as well (as you wore the there)!

Just read your report, excellent!! Good photos by Jessica!
See you all at the next TV gig in Stuttgart!

Of course, you weren't moaning. Just seemed, you were a little disappointed. :|


No not at all. I always enjyo to see some photos, and as I said yours put across the atmosphere I guess...  :)

TV Live / Photos
« on: May 09, 2002, 11:29:13 AM »
Hey, no problem I didn't wanna moan... I really felt the photos put across the atmosphere of the gig. And you're absolutely right, I already thought that some of the close-ups I saw looked pretty much the same and might be from almost any gig...
JS' photos from Tübingen are a good example of how such photos can capture the atmosphere of a gig! Hers from Stuttgart are also enjoyable, 'cause you can see the Useless backdrop. Cheers JS :!:

But I must say I kinda liked your 'arty' photos from last night as well.  :)
