The TV 21st Cetury Live Roster
« Reply #30 on: November 19, 2005, 03:42:00 PM »
I think we should take it nice and steady and walmly welcome each song as it comes back into the TV 21st Century live fold.

TV talks just about this subject in those great interviews in Big Take Over 51 and 52 - see LINKS.

Quote
Jack Rabid: I didn't hear you do any of The Explorers songs.

TV: Yeah, I do some of theirs sometimes. I've done "The Servant" and "Tomkahawk Cruise."

JR: That's right, you did the first single, just nothing from the LP. I'd love to hear "The Last Words Of The Great Explorer."

TV: Yeah, they're pretty difficult to play on acoustic guitar. I also do "The Easy Way" and "Walk Away" sometime, the only problem is....

JR: 25 years worth of songs!

TV: Yeah! there are probably 200 songs I could do. If I'm going around Europe, I do two-hour sets. Sometimes I've done three hour sets.

JR: Yeah, and I noticed from the requests you've played since you've beeh here (in the USA) that you do seem like you know almost every one of them.

TV: People sometimes do catch me with one (like Male Assault in Germany on 18.11.05 - Tj). I hadn't done "The Servant" before up 'til about a month ago, and I tried it, and it worked pretty well. So now that's back in the roster as well. And I hadn't played "The Adverts" until I played it with you guys (Burning Embers - Jack Rabid insisted!) since The Adverts broke up.

In about 10 years, I will have every song I've ever written to play acoustic.  


...Nice to know Teev. :D

Please buy these magazines and The Cheap years interview Big Take Over issue in the late 80's. The back issues are available via the Link. They are such a fantastic read and mine of information TUTS. :D Such as TV thinking of packing it all in and becoming a Milkman. Fascinating! Thank GAWD he wrote and lived CARRYING ON!

The Big Takeover
« Reply #31 on: November 21, 2005, 12:55:52 PM »
Some TUTS have asked me for the link to buy the awesome TV interviews in the Big Takeover, so here you go...

http://store.yahoo.com/bigtakeover/bigtakbacis.html

Issue 25 is from the 80's and gives an amazing insight into TV at his second career low. It also gives you a full Adverts :arrow: Explorers :arrow: 80's Demo's :arrow: Channel 5 :arrow: Cheap history of the life of TV Smith. :D The cost just $4. What a bloody bargain. :D

Issues 51 1nd 52 are during TV's first USA tour post EARTHBOUND 1. Interestingly the last song he wrote before the extensive interview was Earthbound. The interview gives a fantastic insight into TV and talks about everything from The Adverts being turned into the next Spandau Ballet to the bands that Sleaze sounded like.

54 Songs To Go!
« Reply #40 on: September 18, 2006, 09:19:53 AM »
...Patience Gabumon, I mean what do we do when we run out? :wink:

Wow! That's 3/4 of TV's songs played.

I bet you enjoyed the two Cast Of Thousands songs, Gabumon?

Please can we have a list of all the new 21st Cetury played songs this week-end and which are the 54 we still haven't heard.

By the way those that don't like The Revolution's The Same will really love the version played at Elland and Essen EARTHBOUND's.

Wow! What a list. :D Many thanks Gabumon. :D Which were the new ones to take off your not played list?

...There was also 'Waiting' by TV Smith and The Doctors Of Madness. :wink:

...But that's not a TV Smith written song is it?

Wow! What a list of great new songs. Nice one Gabumon. :D

Hmm, Hang on a minute, I'm a bit confused here.  :? I know TV once played Wedding Dress at a wedding in Eurpoe, but when has he played Ship In A Bottle and Walk In A Straight Line (full version)?

And TV played Dance Of Death with Richard Starnge at The New Roscoe in December 2004 and Make Your Escape at EARTHBOUND 3 in E&S Elland Brewery in 2004.
