Some Kind Of Trip: Singles 1990-1994

Some Kind Of Trip collects the singles released by Television Personalities in the later part of the career, from 1990-1994. Here you'll find 26 tracks, including a number of remixes, such as 'Strangely Beautiful', ‘Far Away And Lost In Joy’ and ‘Goodnight Mr Spaceman’. The historians among you will be pleased to hear the tracks are sequenced chronologically.

Television Personalities
Privilege

The Television Personalities were initially a playful DIY pop project with nods galore to the 1960s but as their career went on their albums became darker hued and more troubled. A good example of this latter approach is their 1990 album Privilege which places Dan Treacy's darkly lyrical musings amidst a more synth-based landscape. Another fascinating dispatch re-issued on black and white marbled vinyl by long time supporters Fire. 

Jowe Head
Widdershins

Jowe Head (of Swell Maps and Television Personalities) strikes out with a unique album of experimentally-tinged pop-rock-psych-folk. Widdershins genre-defying tracklisting includes covers of Einsturzende Neubauten and Fairport Convention, as well as a song collected by Shirley Collins, all thoroughly reinvisioned as Jowe music. Released by Easy Action.

Television Personalities
Beautiful Despair

Beautiful Despair is an unreleased album by cult indie band, Television Personalities. Unreleased until now, that is! The album was recorded, but unfinished in 1990. Some tracks appeared in different guises elsewhere, but this is the first time they’ve been released in their original form. A couple of the tracks mention their indie contemporaries, Lawrence from Felt and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads, recalling experiences they’d shared. If you’re quick you can get a limited edition indies only marble vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.

The Television Personalities
They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles

They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles was a collection of singles, rare tracks and outtakes that was put together to mark what was seemingly the end of the Television Personalities. Though the band subsequently regrouped and released a host of further albums, this collection is an essential document of their early day DIY creativity. 

Television Personalities
The Painted Word

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. 1984’s The Painted Word is their fourth record and one of their finest, winning much love for its slightly darker and more psychedelic sound. It receives a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

Television Personalities
Mummy You're Not Watching Me

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. Mummy You’re Not Watching Me is their second record, released in 1982 and packed full of special little indie pop songs. It’s getting a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

Television Personalities
And Don't The Kids Just Love It

Originally released in 1981, And Don’t The Kids Just Love It was the influential debut album from Television Personalities. The record was made by Dan Treacy, Ed Ball and Mark Sheppard following a four-year period of singles recorded under a variety of monikers, including Teenage Filmstars. Lo-fi sounds inspired by cool 60s pop and late-70s post-punk. CD and vinyl LP reissue on Fire records.

The Television Personalities
Closer To God

Closer to God was a 1992 era album by Dan Treacy and his ever changing Television Personalities. As with a lot of his work it is a personal affair reflecting his troubles with mental illness most notable on tracks like My Very First Nervous Breakdown. Fire records have always been in and around the TVPs world and here re-issue this lesser spotted album on black and white marbled vinyl.
