TV Live / Re: 2010 Gigs

I see a gig on the horizon that, if not exactly right up my street, is only an alley or three away from Chez Slaughterboy: Fri 1st Oct at The Montague in New Cross.

Two gigs in N.Cross in two months?  ???

I reckon the new East London Line extention thingy probably makes Tim's commute from the Far West a lot easier to these parts nowadays and may well be the reason why there is a sudden jump in the frequency of TV gigs in the area. Must ask!

Anyways, will see how many of my usual crew of ugly mates can attend. It's normally down to them arranging baby-sitters rather than anything else nowadays but, accidents permitting, I'm deffo for it. Might even bring Mrs. Slaughterboy along for the ride if she can be are warned!!

I used to be on The Fall site, but removed meself about four years ago as I got fed-up with the nonsense that went on. Niggling arguments used to break out and the Moderators just used to come down on the side of their favourites, sometimes against all common sense. After seeing that happen one time too many, I bailed. The Mods there were and still are, I'm told, shite.

One thread triumphantly boasted that of all the members of the original '76-'77 'Punk' bands, only Mark.E.Smith had not 'sold out'.When I pointed out that there was another bloke, also called Smith (I posted a particularly good pic of TV with the piece), who most certainly hadn't, interest in the subject rapidly dropped.

Don't get me wrong - there are people on that site who I'm sure actually only log on to have a go about MES, and some of the slatings he and his band get are deserved. It's just far too self-congratulatory, sycophantic, cliquey and unbearably smug for my liking.

As for the band, they're on a pretty good run of decent quality gigs without too much nonsense from MES (like the Oldham gig that GJ refers to above) and the new LP is still high up on my play-list.

Gig was great. Didn't bother with Monkish as have seen and not liked them before. Audience about 150+, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One was especially knowledgeable in the 'Nicking A Pint Of Guinness' department but wasn't so hot in the 'Getting Away With It' one. Gave him a flea in his ear rather than the clip around it that my mate wanted to give him. Had quick chats with Tim and Gaye beforehand, both their warm and friendly usual selves. I've known singer/guitarists to throw their plectrum into the audience at the end of a gig before, but Tim decided to throw it in halfway through the first song, which sort of truncated it a bit! Spizz was there along with many other grizzled vets and there was plenty of chat about old times outside on the pavement. TV gave the gig his signature 100% effort and passion and you can't ask for much more than that. can, actually. I queued up afterwards to buy a copy of Tim's 2nd book of touring, only for Gaye's sister to buy the last copy. For the first (and hopefully the last) time in my life I am disappointed to report that 'TV Has Sold Out'! At least he's gonna post a copy to me  ;)

Slaughterboy out.

Rather looking forward to this coming Sunday and Monday.

There both nights.

Normally get to see them when they're on tour. Might get arse in gear for this one, poss. Brighton, Aldershot and Shepherds Bush Emp.

New album, out tomorrow, sounds pretty good to me.

Hi - and welcome to the forum.

Nothing wrong with Millwall matey!

You'd assume babies were on the snackbar menu at The Den if the wunnerful English Press were to be if anyone does!

Thanks for the welcome - I'll take a better look around when I get home from work  :)

Try this game if you think you know your football and a bit of geography:

Scored 115,271.

Dunno how they quantify it? ???

Hazard a guess that I'm the only Millwall supporter here.

It is very true that no-one likes us, almost as much as the fact that 'we don't care'.

Anyways, that's me first post over and done with.
