Hi folks!

IMDb page is now up! So now you can share your thoughts about the doc with the world, not just each other!

Please feel free to leave a rating and/or a user review so that the curious have something to read.

If you feel self-conscious about leaving a negative or critical review, or worried that if you do so I'll fly into a rage and bottle you at a future gig, then:

a. These fears are completely justified. I probably would do that. So...
b. Simply write under a pseudonym.  :D

In all seriousness, all honest, thoughtful feedback - good or bad - is welcomed.

My Mum and Dad surprised me yesterday as they have recorded this to watch having heard of TV somehow and then seeing the facebook plugs. It will be interesting to see what they make of it as these 70-somethings are definitely not into punk rock...

Given Jamie's comments about bottling I'd like to say that his TV Smith and The Adverts WE WHO WAIT documentary was Probably the best thing I have ever seen on TV.

Well worth the wait.

Bloody splendid indeed. 8)

Now come on Dave follow it up with the TV Smith Biography book. We TUTS will help with the 21st Century years.

Which were of course some of TV's finest moments.

Oops! I'm off again! ::)

He has carved out a career as a solo artist and troubadour and painstakingly built a new audience through constant touring. To this day, he remains a fiercely inventive songwriter and an electrifying live performer - an enduring embodiment of punk's DIY ethos, passion and power. A thrilling testament to one of UK music's great outsiders,

Actually, I wrote that. ;)

It's from the synopsis I gave the BBC and then re-used on the FB page. Retroman copied it and pasted it from there: https://www.facebook.com/WeWhoWait/info
