Just what did Rikki Flag start back at the Ipswich Beer Festival?

Can we get even more TUTS in the conga this year?

And yes that does say 350 posts and over 30000 views. :D

It would be great to get at least one of the unrecorded songs - especially from the end of the Adverts period. That would be VERY special...

By the way, don't worry MRC5 - I've found your missing 3 and 1/2 stone!

Fred

Heck Fred, I'm all Cut Up! ;)

At the first Elland EARTHBOUND we had a bundle of unrecorded songs played for the first time...

Including the first ever showing of The Good Times Are Back. :o :o :o

So can the fourth EARTHBOUND at Elland Brewery top the first?



After seing Leigh and TV together for their re-union gig at The Load of Hay I can't wait for this mini-tour. :D




I wonder if we will again? ;) ;D ;D ;D

One of TV's most popular You Tube videos with 7,545 hits was taken at this first Elland Earthbound. Generation Y anyone?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DygfPKiD3yY&feature=PlayList&p=30A543E2F648AE6A&playnext_from=PL&playnext=1&index=30

And first time we had loads of rare demos like TV's song of choice on this very special evening...

Why was this my favourite gig ever? It was my favourite singers songwriter palying in my favourite brewery. It was very special and totally unique at the time.

It was also at a key turning poiunt in my own life. Like when TV left Cheap to March solo like A Giant. I certainly did,kt feel like a giant. I'd just been made redundant. Shat on by another big Corporate. It was where I chose to Make My Escape for working for uncaring big Corporate businesses and fly solo. "I'd be my own boss if I could" to quote TV's Sparkle in the Mud demo Today. This gig lifted my spirits at a time when I need to tap into hidden "Strength within" to find the courage and confidence within to start a new life.

This gig helped give me that strength. Thank you TV, TUTS and Dave The Brewer.

What was also special about this particularly gig is that it was the first true Earthbound gig. It was the first time we used the TUTS set list voting system which Gabumon later called The Wishsongs. It was the first clearly billed as Earthbound in advance and it was the first of four Earthbound's at Elland Brewery (which is now owned by Smit of the TUTS).

TV was on amazing form.

It was the first time ever TV had ever delivered a show with a set list like this. Over half the set were songs that were either new* or songs that TV didn't regularly play

Most appropriately of all it was the first time TV ever played THE GOOD TIMES ARE BACK. And that says it all for me...

1. Not A Bad Day
2. Carrying On
3. The Good Times Are Back*
4. Straight And Narrow
5. Quickstep

6. Generation Y
7. The Servant
8. The Easy Way
9. Walk Away
10. Dominator
11. Coming Round

12. Lordís Prayer
13. People Don't Know
14. Earth 2
15. All The Right Hands Rise

16. Thin Green Line
17. Tomahawk Cruise
18. London Beach
19. War Fever
20. One Of Our Missiles Is Missing

21. Atlantic Tunnel
22. The Sure Thing
23. Lion And The Lamb
24. Bored Teenagers
25. Only One Flavour
26. Ghost Of Westminster*
27. Xmas Bloody Xmas
28. Televisionís Over
29. On Your Video
30. Immortal Rich
31. Some Kind Of War
32. Driver Or Passenger
33. Wheels Out Of Gear
34. Make Your Escape

35. Eurodisneyland Tomorrow
36. My String Will Snap
37. Runaway Train Driver
38. Drowning On Dry Land
39. Not In My Name
40. Punk Rock Poem - Gary Gilmore's Eyes

A truly amazing performance by TV and the forming of a fun and friendly group of friends. The TUTS had found their way, truly connected and found their voice.

"What a laugh" TV Smith at the third Earthbound in Elland Brewery in 2004...

If I was put on a rack and forced to name my favourite ever gig aka EATHBOUND. I would go for the first ever EARTHBOUND gig at Elland Brewery with my old mate C5.

Happy days.

My favourite so far. ;-)
