TV Smith and Punk Lurex O.K. (2000)



TV Smith's (more here), formerly of The Adverts (more HERE) elasticity, demonstrated in his ability to play full-on whether the material is old or new, electric or acoustic, is one of his defining traits. The strongest proof of this elasticity, however, is seen and heard in TV's ability to play solo, just man and guitar or with any number of musicians. We've already heard him play with the Adverts, the Explorers, Cheap and Tom Robinson and even though we've so far ignored his guesting with Florida metal band Amen and German punk band the Nervous Germans, we've really just begun to explore the infinite permutations of TV Smith.





Punk Lurex O.K., a Finnish band whose origin story is cooler than the Joker backed up TV Smith on a tour and then recorder this little corker. The fact that the record kicks off with re-recorded Adverts song (Alongside his "Punk Rock Poem") prove TV Smith remains in touch with his own past but it's the two new songs, "The World Just Got Smaller" and "The Future Used to be Better" proves that TV's as incisive, melodic and elastic as ever.

  2. This is, as you rightly say, a cool little item... The Adverts covers are okay (though not as good as those with Die Töten Hösen) but "World" and "Future" never fail to get me bouncing around. By the way, is the Explorers Peel Session anywhere to be seen?
