Back To The Future: TELEVISION PERSONALITIES TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM
Cult band, TELEVISION PERSONALITIES and DOMINO RECORDS have announed that their first album in eight years, called "My Dark Places", will be released by Domino on February 27th and it will be preceded by the single "All The Young Children On Smack, All The Young Children On Crack" released on February 6th on 7”.
These guys have been silent due to the fact that frontman Dan Treacy was reported missing, but then turned up imprisoned in a British prison barge, but their legacy lives on in dozens of bands and even inspiring club nights in their name.
My favorite record is 'And Don't the Kids Just Love It' (1980 Razor & Tie), but I'd recommend picking up their greatest hits, 'Part Time Punks: The Very Best Of Television Personalities' (1999 Cherry Red).
