Finally, the moment we and the expectant (small but were they enthusiastic!) crowd had been waiting for – TV & the band hit the stage & did they hit it! From the first song “No Time To Be 21″, all the old moves, energy, passion & commitment to the cause were there. TV Smith does “MEAN IT MAAN!”. Ably assisted by
the shit hot Valentines, he powered through most of the “Crossing” album the first two singles (no “Quickstep” though) and a clutch of tracks from the second Adverts’ album. There was a bit of a technical hitch with the mikes but in the words of the man himself, this was “Pure Punk Rock”.

Great review Alan. :D

Although I thought the place was packed out. :-\ Maybe Alan means it's quite a small venue that only holds about 120.

Agree with you there TJ, I think it was a sell out - indicated by the doorman/ticket collector instantly giving me face value for my spare ticket.
