EARTHBOUND Elland

EARTHBOUND is the official TV Smith fan club gathering for fans from all over the Earth.

There is now one official event per year. Last years EARTHBOUND was in Germany.

The main EARTHBOUND 2010 gig is at Elland Brewery in Elland in between Huddersfield and Halifax.

It will be the fourth EARTHBOUND gig at the brewery.

The first Elland EARTHBOUND was on 28.05.04 with just TV. Although now billed as the third EARTHBOUND in reality it was the first gig called EARTHBOUND prior to the event. We went back in time and named the first two special gatherings EARTHBOUND after the second one.



The second Elland EARTHBOUND was on 9.09.06 at the brewery was part one of the Exploring Madness gigs which TV played with Stoner and Richard Strange. My nephew Sam Oates and his mate Dean were the support act at the brewery gig which Tv played solo.



The third Elland EARTHBOUND gig was on 27.10.07. The second part of a triple set of Fire in the Darkness gigs to celebrate the live of Dave Allen aka C5 aka Backstage Bob; TV’s most loyal long serving fan ever who died of cancer in early 2007. The first two gigs in Derby and Elland were by the Two Tim’s. Seeing Tim Cross playing keyboards balanced on beer barrels was a sight to be seen. A much developed Sam and Dean were again in support.



The fourth Elland EARTHBOUND will be part of a special two or three part Cheap Price tour featuring the talents of TV Smith and Leigh Heggarty. Sam has keenly offered his support. The gig is looking like attracting the largest gathering of TUTS to date.

…Now how do we attract the American and Australian TUTS EARTHBOUND in 2010?

1st of June. Southwick "Glastonwick" Festival. A TV Smith gig, a Ruts tribute band, lots of other bands and hundreds of cask conditioned real ales. So TJ - NOW are you happy?!! 


For a couple of years the gig was called Southwick 2.

It set the real ale theme that has flowed through these very special fan conventions. :D

TV certainly knows how to make me happy. He even went on to add Richard Strange, Tim Cross, Ian Rolland and Attila the Stockbroker to the pot.

Yep! I was very happy and soon stopped all my TUTing.

Thanks Ilove. I would have loved to see Teev and Vom at last years Earthbound. I interviewed Vom for TV Times 45 & 46. Been thinking about what I should do about the interview and the big piece on Dave Thompson (the true founding member of The TUTS did all TV fans proud of WE WHO WAIT).

Best buy rather than try and ask Fleagle for the TUTS hotel details.

Don't mean to tease but... Me and Fleag have got an interesting idea for this years Earthbound that's so exclusive that we havn't even asked TV about it yet.

As Fred Pontin used to say with his thumbs up "book early".
