Following the break-up of his Explorers (more HERE), TV Smith (more HERE), formerly of The Adverts (more HERE), began his first foray into solo work. Smith's solo debut, the album Channel 5, immediately sunk below the radar but you'll have to buy the CD re-issue to read the whole laugh-about-it-now-but-at-the-time-it-was-terrible story. Here, as small sampler is a vinyl rip of the lead-off single, "War Fever", which shows Smith (backed by Tim Renwick and Tim Cross) excoriating those who would lead us to slaughter with undiminished fire and a cracking tune.
