On the book of faces???

Would surprise me.
(But I probably won't be there myself, after a day at the office I won't hang in there at night...)

It's here!! The mailbox was full with all kinds of stuff (Xmas cards and bills and whatnot), the CD is the best thing of course!

I will give it a listen asap (probably more than once, before the day is over)!  :D

I've listened to it a few times now and it's irritating how much fun such a lockdown album can be!!  8)

My favourite songs from the album at the moment:
"Artificial flowers" & basically all of the "singles" (youtube)!  8)

"Here's very nice German review of Lockdown Holiday from a metal (!) online magazine, and an in-depth interview from the same magazine available in English and German."

For just “a guy with a guitar”, these are powerful songs. But then TV Smith has always had a wonderful way of turning lyrics into poignant and powerful statements. No need to throw in sonic kitchen sinks when the words are the major selling point in their own right. His is a sound which exists where folk’s ability to entertain and inform meets punks more incisor, rabble-rousing spirit.

If punk has a relevant legacy in the modern age it is with people such as TV Smith. People who have grown from disenfranchised outsiders into articulate, artistic agitators. Musicians who have something to say, something really important. If you are finding it hard to find the words to describe the contradictions of the lockdown, of the tumult and tumble of emotions and attitudes, of where the country goes next and indeed how it gets there then this album does it for you.

There are few artists who can claim to have made an album truly of the times, You can add Smith to the list.
