Oh and I met Alan Grundy for the first time at long last, nice to meet you mate !!
Yeah good to meet you too finally! Missed you at the end again though - you're off faster than Usain Bolt after the encores!
Nice to meet up again with Dianne & Marco as well.
Must agree with you about the gig my first of the year and a cracker. The supports were great as well Dog Coffee (although I am a bit biased as he's my son) and Harvey's Rabbit (surely Harvey WAS the rabbit in the James Stewart film) who TV knew from years ago and hadn't played together for 16 years though it didn't show.

Hi Rob - good to meet you yesterday!

An unusual gig venue, but friendly enough (if a little noisy!), and with great beer and character Good to also see Fred and Alan (the other one, I am not yet talking about myself in the third person), and Paula also enjoyed her first TV gig in a few years.

Good also to hear new song Keys, amongst the usual diverse selection of songs, and unusual radio edit version of the servant...

Now debating whether to make it up to Nuneaton tonight... last time there I failed a job interview in around 1983... just think if I had got it 'Crew' could be my local but as it is its almost a 2 hour drive...

C'mon Alan, you know you want to!

Yep, an usual gig alright as it turned out to be a birthday celebration for (yet another!) Alan. This meant that whilst about 3/4 of the people were there for the gig, the rest were happy to just chat (OR SHOULD THAT BE SHOUT!) over the music. Anyway, bad form to ask them to shut up in the circumstances.

It's also the first TV gig I've seen where an encore was prevented by a 'stage' invasion of punters wanting to buy merch! At least it gave me a chance to catch up with a few familiar faces and meet Rob.

What will tonight hold I wonder?

Two hours is nothing to a driver of your experience Alan, after all:

Yes, another good night in a nice enough 'rock bar' venue. Shame there were so many drunken evil munchkins coming, going and generally being annoying bored teenagers...

...I must be getting old...

Good to have a nice quiet chat (i.e. shouting over the 'rock DJ') with Tim and Alan G.

Unusual stats of the week for playing 'TV Smith Top Trumps':

Peterborough: First TV Smith gig with scatter cushions.

Nuneaton: Second TV gig in a row without an encore (straight into 'rock disco'), but no scatter cushions in a 'rock bar'!

Have fun in York tonight you lucky people.
