They said it couldn't be done...

Yes! TV Smith himself admitted that his adventure through the peak district into Buxton and his beer and soup in The Buxton (Brewery) Tap actually beat his trips to Boots and Bright Lights in search of a shaver and a vacuum cleaner repair. Hurrah!

After a beer of two with my wife Lisa and fellow Coach Clare we arrived at The Hairy Dog.

TV had twisted my arm to watch Billy Liar and he was awesome. What a real live wire. TV Smith energy and attitude.

Great to watch Louise again. Her set it stoll looping round and round in my head.

I had a bit of a shock as someone was singing so loud behind me that I couldn't even hear yield singing along. Who was this young upstart?

Yep! It was Phil EKTAFF. Ha!

Great to see TV's No. 1 2015 fan at the gig again. You are a star Alan.

Good to see my old Mucker and original TYT Fred again.

Thanks for Carrying On and Hometown Teev.

We made it in the end.

The funny thing was that Rocket Ron said that Leeds was TV Smith's best gig ever.

And Derby was better.

Like a fine Merlot TV gets better and better with ageing.

Damn!

I was hoping it was TYT as it sounds sort of "olde worlde" i.e. steam punk style!

Thanks Uli.

I was just thinking how good the translation was - until we got to the "pants" bit!

"He was there from the beginning, as a storm was brewing in London in the 70s, which swept under the name of "punk" by the UK. Lack of perspective, youthful anger and incredible boredom added at that time to an explosive mixture together, which was with the Sex Pistols and The Clash a face and a voice. Even the London Tim Smith was involved under the pseudonym TV Smith and his band The Adverts of the hymns of an entire generation.

Today, forty years later, TV Smith is still angry and full of energy. The singer has released 14 solo albums and provides an impressive concert program of nearly 160 shows per year. On Thursday, he led this to Winterthur, in the Sahara bar. In a ninety minute set he played to a full house a rousing best-of-program of old classics and pieces from his new album "I Delete".

"The anger is still there"

Smith had neither an opening act nor a companion volume needed. All alone entered the gaunt man with his guitar on stage, took part in the welcome still reluctant to then show the first song "Only One Flavour" equal, that he has become neither quiet nor silent with age.

"The anger is still there," the singer said in an interview before the concert. "The good thing about getting older is that the anger is more precise and focused. As a teenager, it's just basically angry. Today I try to look more closely. "So the songs of Smith are short, poetic stories that illustrate the mainstream media, the unequal distribution of wealth or the Internet Society critical. It is unfair but that rich people lived longer than demonstrably poor, Smith called into the audience. On the loud approval followed the catchy and the present well-known "Immortal Rich" - immortal realms.

Famous Friends

TV Smith is known pants especially because of his friendship with the German punk band Die Toten this country. So he left it on Thursday night because not accept to play their hit single "Pushed Again" - then, he has written the lyrics.

Finished Smith has the concert in a good mood and conciliatory with the song "The Good Times Are Back". Because no one wants to discourage Smith: "People should feel good about my concerts and encouraged that they can make a difference."

Uli - how did the "pants" sneak into the translation? Did they mean "perhaps"?
