Some Kind Of Happiness? by Television Personalities on Fire Records

Television Personalities - Some Kind Of Happiness?: Singles 1994-1999


  • £26.99

A two disc retrospective of every single track released by The Television Personalities between the tail end of 1994 and 1999, the latest in Fire Records' extensive retrospectives of the Television Personalities' non-album tracks - all in a lavish package with extensive sleeve notes and unseen photographs. 

Featuring all the EP and single tracks that originally appeared on a host of indie pop labels, it’s a cohesive trip into the mind of post-punk songwriter and indie pioneer Dan Treacy, a gifted teller who places the world in his own hazy shade of focus, heading deep into introspection - it’s heart on the sleeve stuff delivered as indie pop poetry. A diary of demise. 

The double-album also includes some inspired covers, including the TVPs versions of The Raincoats' 'No One's Little Girl,' Jaques Brel/Rod McKuen's 'Season's In The Sun,' and The Kinks' 'I'm Not Like Everybody Else' among others.
