TV Smith new album, Land of Overdose out now.
Stamping his songwriting abilities all over Punk’s beginnings with groundbreaking songs like “One Chord Wonders” and “Gary Gilmore’s Eyes”, TV Smith was setting a precedent that established him at the forefront of the movement. Since the demise of The Adverts, TV Smith has taken his one man musical protest around the world, building up a reputation of legendary status with passion and vocabulary from one man and his guitar. The release of his new album “Land of the Overdose” is again classic TV Smith, with today’s society spewing out subjects to tackle with his lyrical creativity.
TV Smith describes the album by saying “It‘s been a long journey from 1977. I used to think that punk rock was a one-off protest movement, but sadly now in 2018 there is even more to protest about. The punk spirit lives on. In “Land Of The Overdose” I‘ve tried to sum up everything I feel about what‘s wrong with the world and what we can do about it. The only compensation for me about the awful state we find ourselves in is that it‘s inspired me to come up with some of the best songs I‘ve ever written. I hope this album sends out a positive message that if we recognise the problems in the world things can start to change for the better, and that music can be a force for the good.”
