TV SMITH - Live @ The Klub Wiv No Name, Stevenage. 1/10/93
Once again the good folk of Stevenage had a chance to see another 'punk legend' play an intimate gig, and once again apathy set in and very few bothered to turn out. Never mind their loss, as I'm sure you'll agree if you download this. From The Adverts to his solo stuff TV SMITH has a way with words, as not only the songs but the banter in between songs on this recording shows. The set starts with his 'punk classic' Gary Gilmours Eyes then takes in subjects such as Britain's 'special' relationship with America, Government cover-ups, train drivers crashing while carrying Nuclear Waste, how everything is getting bigger, and the rich live longer, and the growing gap between the rich and poor. This was recorded 13 years ago and every word is still relevant. Protest never dies it just gets older and you find there's more to protest about, "and I wont pay for their mistakes."
