TV Chat / Re: New Album 2018

Any news on this? TV, Klaus, anyone?

Back in February, TV reckoned it might even be out in the first half of the year, but I guess we'd have heard about that by now! In any way, I'm looking forward to a new release, whenever it'll come out.  8)

Yeah, it's cool how TV always puts in some new stuff.  :)

Wilko Johnson - Manchester Academy (Saturday 12th May).
Wilko's got a new album out next month but I guess the May gigs were already booked before the release was scheduled.
A good bill although an early start at about 5.30.
Mollie Marriott - good voice but a bit boring really. 
Mike Sweeney & The Salford Jets (probably not too well known outside the area) - went down well with the locals, all the singles and a couple of decent cover versions.
Hugh Cornwell - good mix of solo and Stranglers songs with a couple of new tunes from the forthcoming album (also out in June).
Wilko - well, Wilko was Wilko. If you've seen him before, you know what to expect (and if not, why not). Great show, great musicians and even 3 songs from the new album (4 if you count "Take It Easy" which I guess on the new album is a re-recording of this older tune). Finished with Roxette, Back In The Night/She Does It Right and a rousing version of Bye, Bye Johnny.
Couldn't fault the venue on the night, everything ran on time, enough time between acts for a trip to the bar and a smoke although they couldn't wait to get rid of us at the end.
One of the last times that I was at the Academy, Wilko was was supporting the (Hugh-less) Stranglers. Hmm!

Went to "The Mayday Festival Of Solidarity" in Barnsley last Sunday. It was 2 day job but unfortunately, some of us workers have to work on a Saturday! My main reason was obviously to see "our guy" but there was a good mix of music and politics with a bit of poetry thrown in for good measure. TV's set was disappointingly short (see below), in fact "Chip" Hamer's introduction for Tim was only marginally shorter! How, when one band who should have been on before TV didn't show could they over run so that Mr Smith's set was cut down by about a third?

No Control
We Stand Alone
Only One Flavour
No Time To Be 21
Keys To The World
Replay
I Delete
The Lion & The Lamb
Gary Gilmore's Eyes
Bored Teenagers
One Chord
