TV Smith was founder member, singer and songwriter for the Adverts, who formed in late 1976, and became one of the leading bands in the first wave of British punk rock. In early 1977, they performed regularly at the newly-opened Roxy Club in London, and gained cult success with the Stiff Records single "One Chord Wonders." Their next release, "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" became a hit record, leading to many radio and TV appearances and extensive media interest. A further single, "No Time To Be 21," also entered the charts, and the band spent the rest of the year playing live, including major tours with The Damned and Iggy Pop. The album that followed in early 1978, "Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts," is still considered a genuine classic of the era and is often cited as one of the twenty best punk albums ever released.

The Adverts released one further album, "Cast Of Thousands," before their split in 1979. Slammed by the critics at the time, the album was re-released recently on Fire Records to universal acclaim, and described by Mojo magazine as "the long lost punk album that rivals The Clash's 'London Calling'."

Immediately after the break up, TV formed TV Smith's Explorers, who achieved a U.K. hit in 1980 with the single "Tomahawk Cruise" and released one album, "Last Words Of The Great Explorer" a year later. Lack of commercial success led to the band being dropped by their record label and their subsequent split. TV re-entered the live arena in 1986 with Cheap, before performing his first gigs as a solo artist in the early '90's. He has gone on to release a succession of critically-acclaimed albums, including "March Of The Giants" (1992), "Immortal Rich" (1995), "Generation Y" (1999), "Not A Bad Day" (2003), "Misinformation Overload" (2006), "In The Arms Of My Enemy" (2008), and "Coming In To Land" (2011). He has also been involved in a number of collaborations with other bands, most notably with German superstars Die Toten Hosen, who performed as TV's backing band on the album "Useless."

At the request of his fans, in 2013 TV released "The Acoustic Sessions," an album of solo performances, recorded live in the studio with renowned producer Jon Caffery. Vive Le Rock magazine called it "an album that sits alongside the Angry Brigade output of Pete Townsend, Roger Waters and Lou Reed, but hits you with the wallop of bare knuckle punk." Late 2014 saw the release of a new TV Smith album entitled "I Delete," his sixteenth as a solo artist, which has been acclaimed by critics and fans alike.

Fiercely independent and determinedly embodying the original spirit of punk rock, TV continues to tour the world, bringing his epic solo show to ever-increasing audiences. Remarkably, he plays his concerts without a setlist and every performance contains a different selection of songs chosen on the night. He plays more than 120 gigs a year and has performed all over Europe, as well as the USA, Japan, Australia, South America, Russia – and even Heligoland.

Support is from Cherry & Peesh - Punk n Roll spoken word brought together arising from the solo original acoustic work of Peesh Logoz and the provocative political poetry of Cherry B. "Unique, clever, challenging social commentary"
