ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally formed in 1979, TV21 released a string of singles and one album, A Thin Red Line. During that time they toured extensively, both in their own right and as support to bands such as The Skids, The Jam, The Moondogs and The Undertones.

But by May 1982 the band had grown frustrated at their inability to break through to the next level and decided to quit while they were ahead, immediately after coming offstage supporting The Rolling Stones at Edinburgh Playhouse. And that was the end of that, until October 2005, when out of the blue, they agreed to perform as part of the John Peel Day gigs organised around the country to mark the anniversary of the DJ’s death.

Peel had been a huge influence on the band and it seemed entirely appropriate to get together for the event. The gig, at Edinburgh’s Citrus Club, was an unqualified success, if a little rough at the edges, though that was hardly surprising after twenty three years, the introduction of a new drummer and only two rehearsals! Most surprising for the three original band members was simply how much they enjoyed playing again. So, now they’re back and enjoying it more and more.

andy nixon

probably the best album of 2009
hugely underrated band and deserve a larger following than they get.every song is a classic and though somethings wrong is one of my all time faves forever 22 throws some crackers into the equation.these guys know how to convey the energy and passion both on stage and cd.do yourself a favour and lend your ears and be refreshed by the duelling guitars , pounding drums and wonderful lyrics that make up tv21

David Carter

back with a bang
a brilliant band that disappeared sadly without getting the breaks their talents deserved re-emerge after a lifetime away with a stunning album. If you were a fan before get this now, if not pick it up and see what everyone missed. a great rocking album with brilliant lyrics that hits all the right spots. welcome back lads and don't leave it so long next time

Tommy

Forever 22 is a classic
Just came across these guys again recently after being a huge fan in the early 80s. Never saw them live then but have now! Great live act. And now they have a worthy follow up to the classic 'A Thin Red Line' (Really hope to see that first lp on cd at some point). The new album is different but they still sound just as relevant musically as they did when i was a teenager. Welcome back lads!

Forever 22
Picking up where they left off before they so rudely interrupted themselves, this is a great passionate album that grows and grows. The last third of the tracklist include some interesting versions of classics from A Thin Red Line. Highly recommended.
