"It's great to be playing in a democracy, after playing in Britain" - TELEVISION PERSONALITIES (Live in East Berlin 20/7/89)


This has been another holy grail of mine, well not actually this recording, but any live recording of those fun loving part time punk modsters the Television Personalities. This is a great gig, (recorded in East Berlin in 1989) a career spanning set from Part Time Punks to Back To Vietnam, including a great Bowie/Reed melody by that Swell Map; Jowe Head. Also included is their take on White Riot. The highlight for me is the finale, a sort of anti-war statement featuring How I learned to Love The Bomb/Back To Vietnam/King and Country. Magnificent, as is the in between song banter. All in all this is a must have for all TVP 'fans' and for everyone else, give it a blast and you too can fall in love with the tortured genius and charm of Dan Tracey. Thanks to Bertrand on the bands forum for providing this little gem. Enough inane chatter, here it is and what are ya waiting for, it's just a click away.
