Better not get any of these out when the vicar's round for tea.

Different biscuit maker but you could always keep your Hobnobs in them!

We need a recruitment drive. Does anyone have any TV SM!TH pens or vegan sweets we could sell door-to-door?
Might struggle with the sweets if they are only one flavour!

Excellent show at the Rising Sun Arts Centre Reading on Friday (and what a great venue) despite some technical problems at the start. No "Back From The Dead" for this Easter gig but 5 of the new songs and a rare outing of "My Place".
Set list:
Only One Flavour
No Time To Be 21
No Control
We Stand Alone
I Delete
Lion & The Lamb
My Place
The Drink
Expensive Being Poor
Immortal Rich
Land Of The Overdose
No Hope Street
My String Will Snap
Keys To The World
Generation Y
Gary Gilmore's Eyes
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders
Good Times Are Back
Runaway Train Driver

A good crowd despite the bad weather and well worth the long drive also nice to have a chat with Paul North.
All being well, I'll be back in Reading later in the year for the TV support to The Skids.

25th January - Northwich "Salty Dog"
26th January - Bolton "Alma Inn"
27th January - Sunderland "Pop Recs Coffee Shop" guess there's a bar too!
28th January - Nottingham "Foreman's Bar" you'll be lucky if you can get to the bar!
19th April - Middlesbrough "Westgarth Social Club"
20th April - York "Fulford Arms
21st April - Brighton "Prince Albert"piercings optional
27th April - Wakefield "Warehouse 23" - festival thing with the Vibrators, Upstarts etc.

Just found out that TV is the headliner at the January Foremans' in Nottingham gig.
Arturo's initial post was a bit misleading to say the least!

I'm not sure if this should be here or in the "Return of The Bored Teenagers" bit where there has been some discusssion (I'll let you decide Uli)?
Speaking to TV last weekend, he said that he wasn't doing the full UK Subs tour in 2018 (obviously apart from the selected ones with the B.T.s) as he wanted to spend the time concentrating on the new album.
Hopefully though for us this side of the channel it may mean a few UK gigs early in the year?

If it's any consolation Alan was on coke
Even with all that coke Fred, I still remembered the song title - "Already Written Out"!
Even the unusually early start for TV didn't subdue his performance and a (getting on for) 2 hour show (and the good company) rounded off a great weekend of shows for me. The Manchester one was an absolute corker and although I had to
persevere through the majority of bands at Punk Uttoxeter, TV's set was worth it.
I'll swot up on the jokes for Scunthorpe Fred!

I'm surprised they had a second date.
If the romance takes off will they have "our song"?
I'm going with the b-side of The Buzzcocks' 1978 single "What Do I Get"!

Good to catch up with you too GJ and nice to see TJ ("Anyone remember TJ?").
A lower turnout than last time at the Fulford but the sun was out (TV started the set with "It's Warming up") and it was a bank holiday weekend.
The other new song played was "Keys To The World" and there were rare outings for"Back From The Dead" and "First One To Sign Up" (TV said that he hadn't played it for over a year).
Must agree with GJ about the strength of the new songs. Much as I loved the last album, the forthcoming one promises to be even better!
