About This Show

TV Smith was a 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”. The next release, “Gary Gilmore’s Eyes” became a hit record, leading to many radio and TV appearances and extensive media interest. 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 20 best punk albums ever released.
