TV Times is coming Back From The Dead!

28 Mar 10 Back From The Dead!

We're pleased and excited to announce the imminent return of some long lost classics.

Going into production any day now will be the first issue of the revamped TV Times (no relation) fanzine, which originally appeared in the 1980's, written by author Dave Thompson, and has been resurrected by the TUTS from this website. Expect news of how to get your copy very soon.

The CD of songs from the same period will be titled "Sparkle In The Mud," and will contain almost 80 minutes of previously unheard songs. Scheduled for release in mid-May, it will be available at gigs, through a dedicated webshop here on tvsmith.com, as well as through Boss Tuneage records and the usual outlets. There'll be much more information about it and an exclusive preview of the cover and tracklist in TV Times.

The Secret is out! ;)

Spring is the time for transformation and we are delighted to welcome back two old friends from 30 years ago. Coming soon from TV Smith and the TUTS…

    The original 80s Demos re-mastered on CD

    Back From The Dead! The Return of TV Times



Back From The Dead! The Return of TV Times

“We think this guy is gifted and what he has to say is worth listening to.” Tj Sundown

“The circle has been closed - TV Times are Carrying On!” Klaus Fleischer 

"Best of luck in bringing TV Times back from the dead!” TV Smith




“…Well, I never expected to see you again!" Dave Thompson (Mr TV Times)



The original 80s Demos re-mastered on CD

I've had everything carefully mastered to bring out the best possible sound quality. Most of the songs have come up sparkling like new. Exclusively for the return of TV Times and all the TUTS, the title will be Sparkle in the Mud.” TV Smith

“It’s on this material that Smith’s development as a songwriter can be truly gauged." Dave Thompson (Your Ticket Out Of Here)

 ;D ;D ;D

There's an element of relief to get this out in the open, Uli. We've all been working on it for a while now and it had started getting tied in with releasing news about the new album. Sorry if we frustrated anyone. Trust me our objective is quite the opposite. Have fun TUTS. :D

You are honoured indeed Stencil. The official number 1.

In fact everyone seems to be posting about TV Times everywhere but in this special TV Times theme.  ;) ;D

Hi Tj!

Oh wow, that's really amazing! I definitely wanna have a copy of the new TV Times - as soon as I can buy one  ;)

Will the zine be published regularly?

Thanks for the info!

Fabian (My Messages)

Hi Fab

Glad to hear you are excited about the return of TV Times. It's been one hell of a hibernation.

To answer your questions...

TV Times will be a free e-magazine. After all it's a Free World. ;)

The TV Times Team plan to publish regularly. In fact the first three issues are already in the can. They just need some fine tuning from the Editors and our creative Design team.

Cheers

Ah! It will be, Stencil.

...When YOU print it. ;)

Our goal is to make this a Treasure to keep.

...Much like the 80s originals.
