Good news: TV will play in Schwaebisch Gmuend at the "Esperanza" again on Sept 29th!  8)

Also, I'm told he will be in Cologne (Sonic Ballroom) on Sept 27th, Balingen on 30th.

"Sonic Ballroom" have it on their website:

(pretty good write-up in English! where did they find this? wiki?)

In fact I found more tourdates here at "Muttis Booking":

Excellent gig at The Old Town House Warrington on Saturday with TV ably supported by Tim Loud (a local guy who was also something to do with the venue?), another local act (can't remember the name) and Billy Liar (who seems to get better every time I see him).
5 of the new tunes - No Control, Keys To The World, We Stand Alone, No Hope Street and Land Of The Overdose.
TV was joined by Billy for the last 2 songs - One Chord Wonders & Runaway Train Driver.
Nice venue which is almost local for me though the turnout could have been a little better.

Thanks for the review!

5 of the new tunes

Sounds great, so hopefully he will play most of the new album at the gigs in Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec...!  :D

Think I'll have to give the Shoreham gig a miss but...Brenchley Beer Festival the next day? Do-able! Also, a couple of my football team live within Ub*r hailing distance, so I'll attempt to drag them along.

The Camden gig a couple of Saturdays later looks a certain, too  :)

Saturday 28th July 2018.

Actress and Bishop, Birmingham: TV (Smith) supports TV (The Vapors)!

Tim was invited by the band to support them, and he certainly set about making the most of his 40 minute slot:

Only One Flavour
No Time to be 21
No Control
I Delete
The Lion and the Lamb
Tomahawk Cruise
No Hope Street
Expensive Being Poor
Immortal Rich
Land of the Overdose
Gary Gilmour’s Eyes (Very much the “Turning Japanese" of Tim’s career)
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders

Tim was called back to the stage by a huge reception and asks “Have I got time for a quick one? I don’t want to eat into The Vapors set as I want to see them!”

Of course there was:

Runaway Train Driver

And that was that – 10/10 of course.

I took a photo of their set list, so I know that The Vapors played:

Secret Noise
Trains
King L
Galleries for Guns
Sundown River
Daylight Titans
The Right Stuff
Cold War
One of my Dreams
Spring Collection
Waiting for the Weekend
Jimmy Jones
Letter to Hiro (No. 11)
Letter from Hiro
Turning Japanese (Very much the “Gary Gilmore's Eyes" of The Vapors' career)
Prisoners
News at Ten

Encore:

America
Here Comes The Judge

I never saw The Vapors first time around, so I don’t know what they were like then. Apart from a fantastically energetic new drummer (rest original), their set lacked the power I’d expect from a “Power Pop” band. The audience, with a few pissed exceptions, didn’t really get going until “Jimmy Jones”, and the band finally tapped into this energy with the final third on their set being almost as if it was performed by a different band!

7/10 – would have been 5 for the first two thirds.

Here's the promo video for the gig - I think TV is the one with the blue hair:

Brenchley on Friday afternoon!

Me and Mrs. S will be in attendance.

Think I'll be at the Unicorn gig next month too, only I'll be there at least three hours later in the day as I've spotted an oily stain on the undercard.

Hopefully, Ken and Za will be there too

So we were.

Brenchley. Odd place to view TV. British countryside pub, miles from anywhere and at, of all things, a Real Ale festival. A nice pub with extensive gardens where a wooden pagoda served as the stage. There were covered and uncovered tables. Looking at the gathering clouds we, sensibly as it turned out, took position at the closest covered one to the stage. PA was either dreadful or off: no other setting. Still...seen Tim in worse circumstances before and, of course, minor setbacks like these were never going to deter Our Man. So...with ironic tongue firmly in cheek, off we went:

Only One Flavour
Clone town
March Of The Giants
21
No Control
Keys To The World
We Stand Alone
Lion And The Lamb
Replay
Never Again Until The Next Time
I Delete
Green Zone
Expensive Being Poor
Immortal Rich
(think I missed a song here: insert your fave!)
Tomahawk Cruise
No Hope Street
Last Lost Sheep
The Future Used To Be Better
(Missed another: sorry!)
Land Of The Overdose
Generation Y
My String Will Snap
The Drink
Day We Caught The Big Fish
Perhaps The Good Times Are Back
Punk Rock Poem
GG
BT
OCW

...and off to a smattering of applause from about 12 people who were actually interested and virtually nothing from some, frankly, baffled onlookers. Their loss, our gain.

Got talking to a guy and his daughter who'd never seen TV before but, as it turned out, was a fan. He was from Erith via Bulgaria and his name was Petko. Nice person, so was his daughter.

1hr 55 mins I reckon.

Nobody present could say they were undersold  :)

Many thanks for the review - shocked Tim played "The Drink" at a beer festival!

If TJ was here (anyone remember TJ?), he would point out the long heritage Tim has of playing at beer festivals and piss-ups in breweries!
