Many thanks for that, sounds like you had a good night!

Not sure about your SATD comments though - the recent reunion gig was amazing!

Last time I saw them was at Rebellion and I thought it was a perfunctory, cabaret set.
Can't speak for the more recent shows 'cause I wasn't there.

Great night.
Saw Fleagle, Shane, Gaye, Matt (Chelsea) and lots of other old friends...
...TV was brilliant obviously. I don't really do complete set lists (sorry, I'm too busy listening) but he started off with 'Bring The Bull Down', 'Expensive Being Poor', 'Immortal Rich', etc. with Vom bashing the hell out of the kit that he borrowed from Nick (The Members). Then Leigh joined them on stage for a brilliant 'Arms Of My Enemy' and 'Good Times Are Back'. After a few more songs they did some Adverts songs starting with 'No Time To Be 21', 'One Chord Wonders' and 'Bored Teenagers'. Finally they were joined by Segs on bass for 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes'. Bass was a bit 'ropey' but Segs had only played it once before...in the soundcheck. Still fantastic though. A blinding set. I'm sure the others can supply the other song titles I've forgotten due to alcoholic excess.

Unusually for me, I didn't make a note of the set list - I was having too good a time. But Lion & The Lamb was certainly in there, as was Generation Y. I think there were others. The set went down really well though. Vom and TV, Leigh, Vom and TV, Segs, Leigh, Vom and TV...all variations worked. Tim hit a bum note during one song which shocked Leigh and Vom so much that they both swiveled their heads to stare at him in disbelief...ok, make that piss-taking grins! Tim later blamed this on 'the drummer hitting the drums so bloody hard' - a good excuse but...I'll be checking next time!

As Fleags said afterwards 'You'll not see the likes of that set too often'

Let's hope he's wrong  :)

Just seen that TV Smith & The Bored Teenagers are supporting Johnny Moped at The Lexington on 23rd April.

That's in my diary.

Phew what a brilliant night last night and great to catch up with Ken and Xa, Fleagle, my old school friend Jonathan and TV of course. I will think of something to write about it but in the meantime here's Festival Of Fools, and hopefully a conga will follow shortly...

Great night. Just got home. Knackered and waiting for the curry to arrive.
Nice clip Alan.

I wonder how Fleagle's wassailing went after the excesses of last night.  ;D

And I've got our tickets. For those who don't know The Lexington is fairly small and about 90 of the 150 tickets appear to gone so if you're interested best get them soon.

Great news - Vom Ritchie will be joining me on stage at the SO36 tonight for our first ever TVOM! show in Berlin. Hope to have another surprise guest along too. Be aware, that it's quite an early show by Berlin standards - Vom and me will be on stage soon after 20:00.

Fantastic night at the TV gig last night at the Dulcimer in Chorlton, Manchester. Couldn`t get there till late so only got to see TV`s set, he came on at 9-45 and did until 11-30, all the usual songs were in there and he also played a new song "Keys to the World" which sounded great and also played Atlantic Tunnel which was a real treat as I have not heard him play that one live for quite a few years.
Nice gig venue this one with the (Small ish) music room upstairs, a long room but very narrow so places near the front were at a premium, probably about 60 people in up there.
