Review: Although they never enjoyed very much commercial success, post-punk combo turned indie-rock darlings Television Personalities became cult heroes during their ten-year lifespan. Much of that was down to the quality of Dan Treacey's songwriting as much as their ability to absorb and re-contextualize a variety of contemporary influences. This excellent Record Store Day release gathers together all of their singles, throwing in a number of hard to find gems. For example, two of the tracks were initially slated for release as 45s on the Dreamworld label but never materialized, while the bonus seven-inch offers up rare and in-demand cuts that the band recorded and released as The Gifted Children in 1981.
