Here's the promo video for the gig - I think TV is the one with the blue hair:

Guess it all went down hill after Spiderman then?
If poor old Aunt May knew what the song was about she'd end up in hospital again!

Saturday 28th July 2018.

Actress and Bishop, Birmingham: TV (Smith) supports TV (The Vapors)!

Tim was invited by the band to support them, and he certainly set about making the most of his 40 minute slot:

Only One Flavour
No Time to be 21
No Control
I Delete
The Lion and the Lamb
Tomahawk Cruise
No Hope Street
Expensive Being Poor
Immortal Rich
Land of the Overdose
Gary Gilmour’s Eyes (Very much the “Turning Japanese" of Tim’s career)
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders

Tim was called back to the stage by a huge reception and asks “Have I got time for a quick one? I don’t want to eat into The Vapors set as I want to see them!”

Of course there was:

Runaway Train Driver

And that was that – 10/10 of course.

I took a photo of their set list, so I know that The Vapors played:

Secret Noise
Trains
King L
Galleries for Guns
Sundown River
Daylight Titans
The Right Stuff
Cold War
One of my Dreams
Spring Collection
Waiting for the Weekend
Jimmy Jones
Letter to Hiro (No. 11)
Letter from Hiro
Turning Japanese (Very much the “Gary Gilmore's Eyes" of The Vapors' career)
Prisoners
News at Ten

Encore:

America
Here Comes The Judge

I never saw The Vapors first time around, so I don’t know what they were like then. Apart from a fantastically energetic new drummer (rest original), their set lacked the power I’d expect from a “Power Pop” band. The audience, with a few pissed exceptions, didn’t really get going until “Jimmy Jones”, and the band finally tapped into this energy with the final third on their set being almost as if it was performed by a different band!

7/10 – would have been 5 for the first two thirds.

Is that really an iPad for the Setlist?

The book is to get an update and will include the new album.  There will be pictures this time, so if anyone has photos can they send them via me at ektaff@tiscali.co.uk

Sounds good, there's been a few albums since the book was originally issued. So you've been in touch with Dave Thompson? Cool. What kind of pics would you want? Live shots mainly?

I wanted to see if the original book was still available and he gave me the Amazon link, then told me that he was updating it with the new album etc.  Anyhow discussions have taken place, I have sent him some of min, including posters, TUTs pictures and live and "non-live" shots.

Without effective reciprocal arrangements for movement of people between the UK and EU, the UK may see a decline in skilled cultural sector workers coming to the country. Such a development would be to the detriment of the sector, and represent a significant loss to the audiences that enjoy seeing talent from across Europe performing in the UK.

The Committee suggests the Government consider two possible visa options that would recognise the two-way benefits that accrue from allowing artists, entertainers and other cultural sector workers to move freely between the UK and EU:
- Extending the permitted paid engagement and permit-free festival arrangements to EU citizens;
- Offering a multi-country, multi-entry short-term 'touring visa' for EU citizens, and seek a reciprocal commitment for UK citizens travelling to the EU.

Think I'll have to give the Shoreham gig a miss but...Brenchley Beer Festival the next day? Do-able! Also, a couple of my football team live within Ub*r hailing distance, so I'll attempt to drag them along.

The Camden gig a couple of Saturdays later looks a certain, too  :)
