2017 is going to see many bands celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1977 debut
records. There won't be nearly so many from 1977 making their debut 40 years later in
2017. Here is one of those cases: TV Eye. Five 17-18 year olds - Andy Wickett, Dave
Kusworth, Eamon Duffy, Paul Adams and Dave Twist - who channeled "Stooge-punk
classicism, via brute-naivety and a great pair of leather trousers into... something
else." These are the lost studio recordings and no-fi relics of Birmingham's first
garage-punk band, TV Eye. 1977-1978 comprises five studio tracks and six tracks from
a raw rehearsal session (preserved by Stephen Duffy). Includes a four-page photo insert
and essay. CD version includes two bonus tracks.
