TV Smith *Misinformation* Alert
Great news. TV Smith
is going to play a set at our gig tomorrow at Ginglik
. We were originally booked to support another band who, rather inconveniently, have split up. So Tim has kindly agreed to step in at short notice. What a dude!
Tim has done it all. A brilliant singer and songwriter, he was the leader of the Adverts and then TV Smith's Explorers, the band for whom, in a previous existence, I played drums. We were signed to Kaleidoscope, a subsidiary of CBS, and released one album - The Last Words of the Great Explorer
. Tim has released many albums since then while reinventing himself on the road as a one-man acoustic punk-troubadour. His current album, Misinformation Overload
, is a return to his angry rock roots and comes highly recommended.
So this makes tomorrow's show not merely a great line-up but also a historic reunion. It will certainly be a pleasure for me to share the same stage as Tim again - if not at exactly the same time.
See you there.
