A great review of the last 2013 gig:
http://aberdeenvoice.com/2014/01/tv-smith-advert-art-protest/

Short quote from it:
Quote
Lyrically, I canít think of any similar punk solo artist who is so consistently, elegantly sticking a metaphorical pin into societyís ills. The melodies are haunting, elegantly simple, and no small part of the reason people remember the words and their messages so accurately.

...

TV took to the stage in a mischievous mood, claiming he was going to sing his best songs to insult the Americans and the French! As songs that insult Americans and French people are few and far between in TV's cannon we were, instead, treated to Atlantic Tunnel followed by The Day We Caught The Big Fish sung, unusually (as far as I know) in French. For the rest of the set, TV entertained almost like a punk rock host of an American-style 'roast', at his best when he said "...some of you out there will never have seen me before, but now you know what John and Sophie have kept boring you to tears with when they keep saying (imitating Sophie's accent) ' ooh, you must listen to Tee Vee Smeeth to roars of approval and 'yesses' of recognition from John and Sophie's friends. Y'know...Tim should be drafted in to host some of those music industry award shows. At least he'd keep 'em honest!

Set list:

Atlantic Tunnel
The Day We Caught The Big Fish
First To Sign Up
Only One Flavour
Xmas...
Perhaps The Good Times Are Back
Long Gone
Lion & The Lamb
CITL
I Delete
Expensive...
Immortal Rich
Euro Disneyland Tomorrow
Headhunters (aborted when singer couldn't remember it!)
London Hum
GBM
You Saved My Life...
Useless
My Place
The Future Used To be Better
Don't Work
Complaints Dept
GG
BT
OCW

..

What is this "Don't Work"?

So i have any setlist except the 2. Augsburg gigs, can anybody help out there?

Every time I took notes, the setlists turned up afterwards anyway, so I stopped doing this. Now I wish I had taken notes in Augsburg, as nobody incl. TV seems to remember the setlists!  :(
Only Klaus can help, as he has a video of the Earthbound set. Come on Klaus, let us have it (or at least one song or at least the setlist)!  8)
