TV SMITH'S EXPLORERS - The Last Words Of The Great Explorer (vinyl-rip)
After the Adverts had split in 1979 TV Smith got himself a new band together; The Explorers and released this album in 1981, which showed that TV’s song writing wasn’t constrained within any Punk Parameters.

Over the years commercial success may have alluded TV, but he’s still gigging, still recording and still as relevant today as he was 30 years ago when he was the first ‘punk rocker’ to open his mouth on The Old Grey Whistle Test with the immortal lines “We’re talking into corners/Finding ways to fill the vacuum.” Famous words indeed, and certainly not his last.
