I hope TV's got some copies on 8th September although it's before the official release.

Yeah well, it could be possible... I remember back in 2008, when I'd pre-ordered ITAOME, TV said it won't make much sense to send it out via mail when he's on tour only shortly before. So he gave it to me secretly in Stuttgart while the Guitar Gangsters played (it was the package tour with GG and The Lurkers), I kept it well-hidden so no-one would see it and think "why can he get the new cd when it's not on the merch desk yet?".  8)

Yeah well, if I don't remember my name, it is due to the alcohol, not dementia then...  ;D

Not drinking in middle age can increase the risk of dementia as much as drinking too much, according to a report.

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.

Thanks for sharing the info with us!  8)

...  posters, TUTs pictures and live and "non-live" shots. 

Hm, I'll see if I can find something, I have TUTS pics from Augsburg and maybe a few live shots.

Is that really an iPad for the Setlist?
