Influential London psych post-punks THE TELEVIONS PERSONALITIES were formed in 1977 by masterind Daniel Treacy. Their impressive catalogue was a tremendous source
of inspiration for open-minded bands such as Pavement, The Jesus And Mary Chain, MGMT and many more and still has an impact on artists who want to take a walk on the wild side. An important cult band forever. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.
On Record Store Day (26th September) Fire Records
releases ‘Some Kind Of Happiness?’ Singles 1994-1999.
A two-disc retrospective of every single track released by The Television Personalities between the tail end of 1994 and 1999. All in a lavish package with extensive sleeve notes and unseen photograph, featuring legendary songwriter Dan Treacy, a gifted storyteller who places the world in his own hazy shade of focus, heading deep into introspection.
