Generally the best shop for anything like this is minuszerorecords , who generally have huge stacks of assorted TVPs, Robyn Hitchcock, Daniel Johnston et al stacked up in the back room. The website's a bit lame, and if you're planning to visit the shop they open really weird hours so check first if ...

Re: Privilege

Hi, Most of you are TVP's fans and maybe you can help... A friend of mine is looking for information on the picture from the front sleeve of "Privilege"...

I was also aware of the strory abour reading out his adress with a very annoyed Dave Gilmour sitting in the wings. I was there (Cambridge Corn Exchange, some time in the mid 80s); it was more than 'waiting in the wings' - Dave G came out on stage and shouted at Dan, and had the TVPs cut from every ...

Will repost it; was going to wait a while until there's a queue of waiters, as it takes about an hour to upload (even compressed till the pips squeak, it comes in at 112MB) and a yousendit upload only stays for a week

Daniel managed a grand total of 4 songs before wandering offstage. A very odd night; the weirdnes not alleviated by former Melody Maker editor Everett True wandering on stage at one point between support sets and belting a cover of 'Happy All the Time' into the mic.

I wasn't at the German gigs - but this one was fairly dismal in comparison to the ones earlier at the Powerhaus and Bull & Gate. The tape I have isn't yours, I taped it direct from the monitors onto DAT (remember those? were going to replace CDs).

Yes, I know I referred to 13-14 as a weekend when it's actually Thursday/Friday. Sue me. However, the FortunaPop free event at Notting Hill Arts Centre (Tender Trap, Cannonball Jane and Simon Fanfarlo) is at the weekend.
