You choose...

















After The Adverts split T.V. Smith formed T.V. Smith’s Explorers and added synthesisers to the mix, creating a more post-punk sound.

They released four singles:
Tomahawk Cruise November 1980
The Servant April 1981
Have Fun June 1981
Perfect Life October 1981

and one album:
Last Words Of The Great Explorer June 1981

Here’s one from The Adverts and one from T.V. Smith’s Explorers:

mp3: The Adverts - No Time To Be 21
mp3: T.V. Smith's Explorers - Tomahawk Cruise

Thanks for those, Mick! They're both good, but "Tomahawk Cruise" gets my vote.

Agreed! You've probably gathered I'm more of a post punk kind of guy.

'Cruise' is a gem too. Was T.V. Smith really his name (he says, with tongue in cheek)?
