Alternative TV in 2008

For the new year we've have decided to revamp the live set by throwing out some songs that we feel should be consigned to the bin marked 'Punk Nostalgia'. We are putting together a pool of live songs that reflect Alternative TV's entire career, not just the punk bit, which only lasted 2 years!
We are also starting work on a new studio album - at last! -which hopefully will be ready by the Spring. We will be recording at Kevin Mann's new studio. Yes, drummers can twiddle knobs as well as bash things.
One last thing, as I keep getting asked, the band line-up at the moment is:
Mark Perry - vocals, guitar/ Lee McFadden - guitar,vocals/ Steve Carter - bass guitar, vocals/ Kevin Mann - drums. Other people may help us out in the studio as guests.

Great to see ATV activity - caught you with the Pop Group in Cheltenham late-ATV early-Good Missionaries days - Vibing has always been a repeat player in this household ... very fine stuff...

Look forward to hearing the new stuff ..

Snappy Turns on vinyl currently spinning as we type ..

Did those Vibing Peel sessions ever get a release ?

What a treat. Please let me know if you come to Washington, DC. I'm a big fan!

Hi Farmer Glitch. Glad you like my stuff. Cheltenham was quite an experience.
Peel stuff was released on 'The Radio Sessions' cd on Overground Records.

What's happening in ATV land? I remember the floral shirts when you played in Stevenage in early 80's with Chelsea, around the time of Strange Kicks, great album.

Time really flies doesn't it? Nearly three years since any activity on here. Are you okay, Mark? Anything happening?

Mark, Any idea how I can get a copy of the Good Missionaries "Pylon" CD-R, which was apparently issued in 2009 on Frankenstein Records?

Thanks!

Charles

Have you any live gigs planned in the near future, Mark? I have been in touch with John Esplen of Overground Records - can you get in touch with me please?
