An excellent read.

Just goes to show what sacrifices some artistes go to to get to gigs and put shows on for our enjoyment..

Started reading How To Feel Human today and couldn't put it down.

Then when I finally managed to put it down I thought...

Did I pay TV for this?

...Oh no! Not again!

It's okay I paid for both copies. Phew! :D

Like Fleagle, I find that its hard to put TV's latest diary down.

I'm going to start a series of posts about How To Feel Human.

....Don't worry it's not my guiding starlight stuff it's TV's diary stories I'm talking about. :D

"One girl comes up and asks me where I'll be staying tonight, eyeing up the tatty sotas with concern."

"...'It's all settled', she says brightly. 'You can stay with my mother. I phoned her up and she says it's okay' "

Who was she Teev?

My guess is that either all German girls are Angels or that's our very own Simse.

For those who know the secret of how to read invisible ink, hold up page 62 and look into the light. You will read what happened on the 30th May and 1st June 2002...

Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who came to the gigs over the last few days. Special thanks to PK for all his help and for wearing that cap, and to Steve for the tadpoles. Believe me, it's great for me to see so many familiar friendly faces in the audience when I'm playing. With supporters like you lot, things can only go well! So now, along with other tour highlights over the last 25 years - Damned/Adverts, T.V. & Tom Robinson - I have a new one to add to the list...the already legendary...T.U.T.S LONG WEEKENDER!!

See you next time,

TV Smith

Yep! You got it. The 30th May 2002 was the first gathering of the TUTS at The Verge in London and the 1st June was the first ever EARTHBOUND at Atilla's Glastonwick beer and music festival.

As TV's second diary focuses on his trips abroad I thought I'd fill in that gap for you. :D   


EARTHBOUND 1 (Glastonwick 7 The Barn Southwick 1 June 2002)



Quote
I enjoyed last saturday enormously, despite going down with The Plague, and the energy that you and the guys send back to the stage is trull amazing.  I love the atmosphere that you create whenever I play- it makes me remember why I love playing live, and why, when it works, it is such a great communal high. I also love working with Tim, and just knowing he is there is a great support.

I would like to thank everybody who came along to support me in the festival at Southwick last week. It was a glorious day, despite the fact that I was feeling particularly rough, and the warmth and encouragement from all of you was enough to raise the spirits of even the most ailing invalid to an almost biblical degree.

While I had nothing particular prepared for the show, preferring always to let the set develop according to the dynamic of the room, I felt that we managed to cover a lot of ground.Thanks for getting it right, as you always do!! It was especially uplifting when TV joined me. I am constantly in awe of his energy, sincerity and talent, and always lifted by his sheer presence next to me on stage.

Once again, thanks to you all for your constant support. For me, it was a great day. So glad you were there.

Best wishes

Richard Strange

Here are some classics...

4th July 2002

TV Enters CBGB's for the first time in his life...

"Further down in the club I meet a band called the Midnight Creeps who know all my stuff and play 'Safety in Numbers' in their set. They're thrilled to meet me and I have to sign autographs and get photos taken. Seems like I'm definately in the wrong club: over the raod know one knows who Iam, here I'm a celebrity."
