Television Personalities - And Don't The Kids Just Love It


  • £22.99

Originally released on Rough Trade Records in 1981, And Don't The Kids Just Love It is Television Personalities incomparable debut album. 

Formed in 1977 after Dan Treacy heard The Sex Pistols and Jonathan Richman, and championed by John Peel, Television Personalities' inventive, catchy and instantly accessible take on modish post-punk became a template for indie bands for the rest of the decade, and is still a key influence on DIY punk decades later. 

And Don't The Kids Just Love It is a lo-fi masterpiece of 60's-pop inspired post-punk that was way ahead of its time in 1981, and still endures forty years later!
