TV Sound Bites
« on: April 16, 2002, 09:22:18 PM »
The thing I like about TV's lyrics are his play on words where he perverts well known phrases, my favourite (I think) is 'the tried and twisted crew', and 'the pacifist bomb squad blown to parts' is probably a close second.

I first saw TV play solo at the Hull Poetry festival and in many ways that sums up his music for me - Migt sound daft but has TV ever thought of releasing a poetry book with them all in working with a decent illustrator/photographer to bring them to life?

Hi Alan,

I know what you mean and I totally agree.
Those phrases really leave a mark in someone's brain.

Doing some kind of poetry book isn't that unlikely, I think.
There might be a book with his diaries. So why not a book with his lyrics?

Hi TV Forum,

I'm back :D

Hi Teev - Why not produce a book featuring your diaries, your lyrics, your photoraphs and a few memoirs of the days before the diaries :)

Some more killer lines on Not a Bad Day - so far my fav's are:

Feels like you could be someone, And its only a matter of who

The facts don't fit, Truth moves and slips

Every step a new horizon

A knife's edge between love and pain

The sights I've seen, the things I've heard whilst sliding down the learning curve
