TV Personalities - The Dovecot, Stockton-On-Tees

My mate has just sent me a review he did of a TVP's gig at The Dovecot in Stockton-On-Tees. The review was supposed to feature in mod fanzine at the time but it never happened. I was just wondering if anyone knows the date of the gig? Looking at the songs played I'm guessing it's around 1986/87?

Re: The Times - My Picture Gallery - The Artpop! Recordings boxset

I got this boxset the other week and have to say that it's really well put together. One for the Xmas list for any fans of Ed Ball's work.

Whatever Happened To Thamesbeat

Not much info on this at the moment but Heavy Soul Records will be putting out a 7 inch single of The Times 'Whatever Happend To Thamesbeat' next year. This will be the first time I think that it's ever been released on 45?

Also to follow is a compilation LP entitled - 'Here Come The Times Volume 1'.

Smashing Time?

While looking through Sam Knee's book 'A Scene In Between' I noticed a photo that was taking during the making of a promo video for the TVP's 'Smashing Time'. Does anyone have a copy of that video? Or is it as the book claims 'lost in time'?
