Shindig! Magazine

There's a decent feature on the TVPs in the latest issue of Shindig! magazine (issue 69). Altogether there's 5 pages on the band which includes contributions from Jowe Head & Joe Foster along with a few photos. The magazine also mentions that the first 4 Television Personalities LP's are getting rei...

Re: What are you listening to?

Paul Orwell 'Blowing Your mind Away'. Such a brilliant album but why has it taken me so long to getting round to picking up a copy???

Anyway, here's a clip for those of you who haven't heard Paul Orwell before .

Re: Whatever Happened To Ed Ball?

I heard that Ed Ball has officially retired from music. Shame as I never did get to see him live either with The Times, TVPs or solo but he was stood next to me once at a gig, I was just too shy to say hello. Canadian record label The Beautiful Music are planning on putting out a tribute album to Ed...

Re: Dan Treacy rehabilitation

I'm planning to visit Dan very soon. Based on past experience...he's upbeat sometimes...sometimes down... Any well-wishings will be appreciated. Just let Dan know that people are still thinking of him and wish him all the best from me. I was having a bit of a TVPs day today spinning 3 of their albu...

Re: What was the last record you bought?

Tito Ramirez 'Be My Girl' b/w 'Lonely Man' Sounds like it was recorded in the 60s but it's a new release from Spain which has now sold out. I was lucky enough to bag a copy from Spain and it was £20 cheaper than what Juno were asking for the 45! I can see 'Lonely Man' going down at storm at my Get H...

Suggs & Ed Ball?

Does anyone know anything about this song? It seems that the video was directed by Ed Ball but did it ever get released as a single or maybe appear on an album?

Those Unfortunates

Not sure if anyone has posted about this band before but when I first heard them I could tell that they were influenced by The TVP's and sure enough when I looked on their website that listed The TVP's alongside The Kinks as an influence on the bands sound. Here is their most recent single - ezmfKfm...

Re: What are you listening to?

With all the hot weather I've been listening to a lot of Rocksteady of late.
This tune is getting played to death on the turntable at the moment.

Re: Gig chat

I went to see the return of The Moment the other week at The Borderline in London. Loved them back in the 80's but never got to see them live at the time. The band have a bit of a TVP's link as Ed Ball co-produced their debut (and so far only) album 'The Work Gets done' back in 1985. Anyway, the ban...
