TVPTribute Gig in Athens 16/03/2019

It would appear that there was a TVP tribute concert in Athens on Saturday, featuring - amongst others - former band members Jowe Head, Dave Musker and Lee McFadden. I knew nothing about this! There's some videos on youtube: dgZHUW7qb-8 t4qSyuvY-2A At0MtK8H1Ww R_Bktbjk7us G8M2-JZ9nuQ At0MtK8H1Ww dYL...

Jowe and The Teenage Filmstars (who might they be?) have two dates in Scotland in February, playing a set of TVP and Swell Maps songs, according to the flyers. Exciting!

Re: Whatisdoneisdone

If you browse down the list of topics in the Ed Ball discussion section you'll see quite a few references to new songs, a 7" and a new LP round about 2007/08. As far as I know everything seemed to get pulled from release and Ed disappeared from public view (but he was later confirmed as being ok). S...

I've also made it into an "announcement" so it's at the top of the forum.
