Reviews & Opinions

SOUNDS, 1983: This most talented and perceptive songSmith has at last made the transition from literary punk to a genuine singer- songwriter of worth. In my own (admittedly partisan) judgement, TV now ranks up alongside Paul Weller and the Difford/Tilbrook partnership, as many of the compositions on 'Channel Five' prove with an effortless panache and ease.
