The Flowerpot, Maidstone 20.10.17

Tv return to The Flowerpot for the 2nd time this year and played to a large audience, I would guestimate at around 100 spread over the 2 bars.   Support was from William Harper, quite similar in style to TV, I detected a couple of similar lines to TV's songs, which is not a bad thing.  TV began at 2210hrs and the set list was:-

No Control, Green Zone, We stand alone, 21, flavour, CITL, Replay, Delete, Lion, Useless, Drink, Big Fish, Expensive, Imm Rich, GBM, No Hope St, Overdose, String, Gen Y, GGE, BT, OCW.    RTD as encore.

1hr 20 mins of great entertainment.

No more news on the new album, apart from that it is progressing well.  Only 1 date with the Subs on the early 2018 tour, more dates with the Teenagers to be finalised, with possible ones in Hamburg and London.....  Now I dont want to jinx the latter but Mrs Taff is looking forward to London.....

Another good evening was had, no sign of Slaughterboy.....

Thank you EKT for the setlist/review!  8)

Another good evening was had, no sign of Slaughterboy.....

Last we heard from him was on Thursday I think, he mentioned:

Suffering from Guinnessosis and sleep deprivation now...

UK Subs Tour without TV?

Will be difficult for them to know which time to go on stage, as no sweaty TV will enter the backstage at that point...  ;D

Managed to get over Guinnessosis by the drinking of, of course, yet more Guinness!

However, this caused me to forget certain things. Namely, the Maidstone gig, until I did remember it somewhere around 9pm. By then, it was a bit too late to get from SE London to Maidstone: a shame, as my drinking buddy for the evening, when told that I was missing a TV Smith gig, said "...Ooh, is ee the geezer oo does 'Gary Gilmour's Eyes'?...'

'Erm, yeah...' I said.

'...I'd go and see im just for that...' he says.

Since his excellent performance on ITAOME, Tim Renwick had disappeared from our "radar" a bit, but great to hear he'll be there tonight!

Looking forward to meeting up in a few hours with my old buddy Tim Renwick and playing a few songs with him at the Highwayman, as well as enjoying sets from Pete Kliskey, Andy Thomas and Billy Liar. Hope some of you hardy Westcountry people will brave the 70 mph gales and come and join us.

Well in the back of my mind the thought arose that he might live nearby...
In the interview (far from current, this was back in 2008) he mentioned Cornwall:

As for the possibility of him contributing to TV's next album: would be great.  8)
