Television Personalities - You, Me & Lou Reed EP (1993)

A weird one. Released far later than it was recorded. See below for details. Catch it here.

Released in 1993 on Fantastic Plastic then in 1997 on Little Teddy label this 4-song set was recorded in 1987 during their non-LP years and between the "How I Learned To Love The Bomb" EP and the The "Prettiest Girl In The World" single. This EP can find its place among your fave Treacy songs without any problem. With him, you'll find Jowe Head. This post will begin some about obscure singles or EPs that he released over his long, uneven and often sublime career. Our thoughts go to him since he faces awful surgical and medical torments from last October. It will never be said enough as this man gave to music. So many have tried to imitate him and failed miserably. He's the one and the only one. Like Peter Perrett or Mark Perry, he will stay in my heart and mind until my last breath. Enjoy it here or there

Link's not dead, but not quite fully working either - the 'download' option is greyed out for the file, just allowing saving to a Rapidshare account

dkelvin said...

I reuploaded it. Tell me it it's better now

DK, sorry, same issue still, which is odd as the other TVP file is fine.

Shit, I don't see at all WTF. And it's true nobody dl it over the last 3 days. I've recreated the file, changed the name and re-uploaded it. I've also created a new mf account for uploading files with problems on rs. One of them should work.

Sweet, that works a charm -- and hell of a lot faster given RS' slowdown policy. Thanks.

Yes I know, but mf closed my account some weeks ago and so were lost hundreds of uploaded files so I went back to rs. Sorry but no choice. I'll use here and there mf for non dangerous files but I was near to close also this blog so I don't want to live this situation again.
