A side apiece from the Thames Poly in 1985, East Berlin in ’89, New York in ’92 and Bremen in ’93. Includes stellar versions of ‘How I Learned To Love The Bomb’, ‘Salvador Dali’s Garden Party’, ‘My Very First Nervous Breakdown’ and ‘Hard Luck Story #39’. Download includes seven tracks from the intimate and exclusive - and hungover - Kim’s Underground Show in New York including a brooding ‘Part Time Punks’. Remastered from the original tapes with extensive sleeve notes and input from Jowe and Jeff. A masterclass of Treacy’s incisive songwriting: “Truly of all the '77 mob, his is the only talent to remain totally intact.” Bob Stanley // “TVPs were as mythical to a younger generation as Syd Barrett had been to Treacy” Uncut // Includes expanded liner notes.
