Mr. Treacy is looking really well. That's great to see. :)
And look at the jacket, and the shirt! Are we observing a serious style change here?

I chose "Magnificent Dreams" too, though it is a hard choice. I think apart from yet another unbelievably catchy tune, it is the sentiment in the words which I love. In a way it sums up a lot of what the TVPs stand for. I mean, how many people will have thought that Dan was crazy to record records w...

I had £10 on Italy to win the World Cup at 12/1. Happy days :D Shame it's all over for another 4 years. I had thought the one in the poll above choosing Italy had been me (I always pick them by default, because I think they are always capable of winning anything if they get their act together), but...

As a German living in Scottish exile, I have only 2 big wishes for the world cup: that neither the Netherlands nor England win. I admire the trust that at least 3 people here have in Germany (probably Englishmen fearing the worst ;-)), but I can assure you, that Germany winning would be close to a m...

Hi everybody! I can't compete with Stefan's first hand tourbus memories (I imagine it wasn't the happiest of times for Dan..., at least I remember the Bartlebees mentioning that the atmosphere was quite grim on that tour...oh I see perhaps they meant it was "GRIMM"), but I think it is about time to ...

1989 berlin (new year's eve) 3 hour show. everything & more. Berlin is a classic - with Evan Dando joining Dan for some songs. . Dan sings "I remember the night when we first met, such a night noone will ever forget, the night the walls came down in Berlin" on "Evan doesn't ring me anymore" (what a...

It's interesting how many different songs have been mentioned already. What a diverse (did I hear perverse?) bunch TVP fans are... I still can't believe that I am the only one so far who has picked "I'm not your typical boy". When I first heard it, it blew me away. Not only does it have a beautiful ...

Hmm, hard to define what the TVPs "at their best" are, but I think Chocolate Art is a great live album. It contains excellent performances of some the best of the early songs, classic Dan banter with the audience and (on the CD version at least) THAT argument between Jowe Head and the soundman, whil...

Funnily enough there is a TVP version of "Whatever gets you through the night" on an early 90s cover EP, if my memory serves me well, so you might want to check that out... Claus The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators. Just thought I'd contribute to the thread... And a song called "whate...

Melting down TVPs records

Why a joke? The TVPs once claimed they were "bigger than the Beatles" (deliberate quoting out of context here), and as according to Lennon (66) the Beatles were bigger than Jesus, this logically implies that the TVPs see/saw themselves to be bigger than God (or his son...well definitely bigger than ...
