Message from TV:
These are strange times without gigs...
I've tried to make up for it a little by recording some live performances in my home studio for you.
Hope you enjoy these ten songs I've chosen...all for free and available now.
Please consider joining my YouTube channel and I'll see if I can record some more as the lockdown continues!

16 Aug 20 Finally...gigs!
This time it looks like it will really happen...one of TV's favourite venues, the Steamboat Tavern in Ipswich is going to host two socially-distanced seated gigs in their beer garden on the weekend of 5th and 6th September. Details of how to obtain tickets in the gig list!
16 Aug 20 Immortal Rich
TV's 1994 album "Immortal Rich" has just been re-released on CD by Easy Action Records and is available in the online shop here. This new version includes as bonus tracks the "Thin Green Line" EP that TV recorded with Tom Robinson, and the track "Eurodisneyland Tomorrow" which was previously only available as the B-side of "We Want The Road."
14 Aug 20 TV on Video
Still no gigs...but I've now uploaded the video session I recorded for the online Rebellion Festival this year to my YouTube channel as individual songs. I hope to keep adding to the songs on YouTube so please subscribe to the channel to get notified of what's new there! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2s63T1NH3GtdKbULX5pXtg/videos
03 Aug 20 No Gigs!
Very disappointed to have to report that due to the change in the laws on indoor gigs announced on Friday - with just 24 hours notice - the gigs at the Waterloo Music Bar planned for this week have had to be cancelled. Everyone tried really hard to get the event switched to an outside location but sadly it just wasn't possible to do it in time. Full refunds to everyone who bought tickets of course. https://www.waterloomusicbar.com
28 Jul 20 Gigs!
The wait for a gig is finally over! The Waterloo Music Bar in Blackpool has been granted permission to stage four nights of gigs over the period when Rebellion was due to take place, with TV playing on the Thursday and Saturday, and Arturo Bassick on the Friday and Sunday. These will be seated table service gigs following the current guidelines and strictly limited to 70 people per night, advance tickets only. https://www.waterloomusicbar.com
23 Jul 20 Rebellion Online
To make up for cancellation of this year's Rebellion, there's going to be an online festival instead, with over 25 hours of videos over the four days when the actual festival would have taken place. TV has filmed a new collection of acoustic songs for the occasion and his performance will be shown at 10:00pm on Sunday 9th August exclusively on the Rebellion Facebook page - where you can also find more details about the whole event now https://www.facebook.com/RebellionPunkMuskFestival/
19 Jun 20 Stiff Little Fingers tour
Some light at the end of the gig tunnel at last - TV's tour with The Professionals and Stiff Little Fingers has now been definitively rescheduled for March 2021, by which time we are all hoping it can actually take place... All dates now in the gig list.
30 May 20 TV on the radio (2)
Still no gigs...but TV will be on Phoenix FM at 8:00pm tonight (30/5), having a chat with Steve Green on his "Blank Generation" show, and choosing some of his favourite punk records, as well as some of his own. An extended three hour version of the show will be available online soon afterwards. https://www.phoenixfm.com/2020/05/30/blank-generation-16-looking-tv-smiths-eyes-ears/
28 May 20 TV on the radio
As there are still no gigs...how about some radio time with TV and Duncan Reid, reminiscing about their 2013 trip to Argentina and much more! Tomorrow Friday May the 29th TV Smith & Duncan Reid on “El año de la Pestre” (The year of the Plague) on-line radio.
