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 Head in Scotland February 2019

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...

Well, it took me a bit longer than I expected, but the news is now splashed all over the front page.

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

I discovered this evening that Jowe wrote a blog post about the early days of Swell Maps on his own website, back in September 2012. Worth a read.
