TV Smith: Live at the KWNN, Stevenage, 1993



In the nineties, TV Smith (more here), formerly of The Adverts (more HERE), finally struck out on his own. On the advice of Attila the Stockbroker, TV took up his acoustic guitar and began life as an insurrectionary troubadour. The result was the folky-but-fearsome March of the Giants album (just re-released on Easy Action). To document this phase of TV's march from obscurity to semi-obscurity, here's a  good  sounding audience bootleg of a 1993 solo gig.

  5. Thanx for all the TV Smith and please keep it coming.
    Id never heard of the guy, probably due to my adverts-allergy, and am really enjoying his solo stuff.
    Actually, it's absolutely brilliant!
    At times it sounds like john foxx and dead kennedys had a get together and this is what crawled out of their backstage-digs 9months later.
    At times... ;)

    Thanx.
