Nice photos. Did anyone manage a recording of this gig? Or any of the other gigs from 2006? Seems like all the 2005 gigs were taped, but 2006 is slim pickings!

Julian Cope's "20 Mothers" arrived the same day as I digitally downloaded Bishop Allen's "October" ep.

TVP Tribute #2

I have just received word that the TVPs tribute on The Beautiful Music label is nearing completion. The first 200 will include a bonus disc. Not a bad song in sight!

Great reviews I am hearing. Ok, who was it that tried to place the cell phone call to me from there?? I briefly heard the music, and then all I heard was a lot of hiss and some noise! Wow!!!

Yea, on the documentary. One of the sadder moments. He is in shortsleeves and the interviewer asks him about the "burns" on his arms..

Why photoshop his head onto Eminem, though?

Yea, definately Eminem's body. I remember Andy telling me this also.
Maybe has to do with those poems/lyrics Dan was writing at the time of his release that mentioned Slim Shady.

I can about say the same. I think the first I heard of the TVPs was them playing "Apples and Oranges" on the SydTrib Beyond The Wildwood.
Syd was an innovator and we should all be happy for what music he left us with.

Early Violent Femmes have been making heavy rotations in my player recently, along with the monthly offerings from Bishop Allen, the last one from Frank Black and of course the TVPS!~

Re: Closer to Who?

Hello all learned TVP fans. Something has always bugged me when I listen to Closer to God (I mean the song specifically). There's a sample towards the end of the track that sounds like a deep-voiced shout/chant consisting of three indistinct words. Does anybody know what its saying? If its somethin...

Re: mystery tvp

I went down to Brighton for the gig at The Basement in Oct 84 and the tvp's played as a four piece that night with an extra guitarist I'd never seen before, he really helped to beef up the sound. The next time they played London he'd gone never to be seen again.. Does anyone else remember this, kno...

1989 berlin (new year's eve) 3 hour show. everything & more. Berlin is a classic - with Evan Dando joining Dan for some songs. Another highlight is the epic Knitting Factory gig in New York in 1992. 2 sets that went on all night! After a few hours of after-gig partying, the TVPs had to play the nex...

I Hope You're Happy Now

There are so many that I can list as a favorite. It would depend on mood and time of day I guess. Standouts for me are: "Dream The Sweetest Dreams" " No More I Hate You's" "I Hope You're Happy Now" I think "I Hope You're Happy Now" is possible the finest song. It has so much going on. All the noises...

Re: The best TVPs album

IMO if someone were to put the four early 90s EPs (She's Never Read My Poems/Strangely Beautiful/We Will Be Your Gurus/Far Away & Lost in Joy) together as an album it would be the best TVPs album by quite a long way. Speaking of.. wasn't Fire planning to do this at one point? I wonder what happened...

Bishop Allen!

They are doing this thing where they are releasing a cd/ep a month. $5. postpaid (usa). I've got on "February" right now.

Very cool band. I can recommend for fans of the TVPs.
