Thanks, Mike. It's a pleasure to listen to the gig in its entirety here, and especially a buzz to hear a live version of "Glory" recorded so close to the release of "Adventure". Class!

Did you get the related images i e-mailed you ?

Mike said...

Yes! Thanks! I don't check the website's email as I am sort of lazy. Emmett had forwarded them on to me, but in my somewhat hungover state this morning I forgot about them. Thanks for the reminder. The pictures are both great.

As it's late in the Saturday afternoon here, i'm starting in on a Sunday morning hangover-to-come as we speak! Cheers!

Mike said...

Very good! Emmett is going to have a very serious hangover tomorrow. That I can promise you. Tonight will be a late one.

Michael said...

Brilliant. Thanks! I'd forgotten what a brilliant band they were. Now I'll rush back to the vinyl version (again).

In re: to an earlier discussion, concerning Emmett and the prospect of him being hungover. I don't know how he feels right now, but his sporadic blogging partner is ill. Very ill. At the top of the page you will find a post in honor of my dire situation.

vu Tom Verlaine et Jimmy Rip en concert à Paris dimanche dernier; invités par Patti Smith qui expose ses photos et dessins à "la Fondation Cartier"; Tom en grande forme ( je l'ai vu sourire pour la 1ère fois en 31 ans et 6 concerts parisiens ); et vous ne me croirez pas mais ils ont joué tous les 2 une version country de LJJ;

Wow. Looking forward to listening. I've never listened to much television beyond Marquee Moon, but their guitars are phenomenal.

I love it when bands like this play their tracks relatively unchanged in a live setting. I mean if I got to see Prince I expect a complete overhaul of material but Television's songs are so good when they're tight. Thanks!
