END OF YEAR ACCOUNTS 2013

Greetings all.

- France tour was a great success on both a personal and musical level. Financial? We're not giving up the day jobs just yet. Regardless, we can't thank everybody involved in making it happen as much as we would like to. Needless to say we hope we can make it back one day.
- A tour diary is available to read here.
- A review of the final show is available to read here (French language).
- A photoset of the final show with Musicsova is available to view here.
- There are no more shows in 2013.
- National Service will be issued on vinyl in 2014.
- A third LP is being thrashed into shape and we hope to also release this in 2014.

Here is some assorted media.

However, when Make It A Little Bit Louder asked the band to do this, ME leapt at the opportunity to make me do some work in light of having no gear to carry or vans to drive. So, here it is, the largely unexpurgated diary of TV's first European tour, all 2600 words (approx.) of it, complete with pictures, links and diversions. Recommended commute reading.


TEN YEARS OF TOTAL VICTORY

A long post of many parts after which we will shut up for a while. Worcester, June 2017 (EDIT: a general flavour of this entry can be fou...
