Original title by Dave...Shameless self-promotion (sort of)

Dave Thompson here... thought some of you may be interested to know there's a year in the early life of TV and the Adverts running through my latest (out this month) book "London's Burning: True Adventures on the Frontlines of Punk 1976-1977", published by Chicago Review Press.  Take a look!

Welcome home Dave. :D

We've already been talking about London's Burning few weeks in World Chat...

http://www.tvsmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=5620.0

A few of us tried to buy it through Amazon back then.

Check it out TUTS. There's only one author who really interview and write about TV Smith and The Adverts like this.

...And that's internationally famous music author Dave Thompson who started his career as the writer of TV Smith's 80's fanzine called TV Times.

Check London's Burning out NOW TUTS!

I hope you don't mind Dave but I've amended the subject title so people will know what the post is about. I'll let you know what I think of your latest book.
