Television Personalities - A Memory Is Better Than Nothing download mp3 album
Dan Treacy has been claiming that Television Personalities are over and done with, and that he's quitting music. Maybe he'll be back and maybe he won't: His band's first kiss-off was They Could Have Been Bigger Than the Beatles, back in 1982, and they recorded one of the greatest goodbye-to-all-that albums ever, Closer to God, a decade after that. MGMT's "Song for Dan Treacy" was a conceptual variation on Treacy's own "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives", an encomium to a hero who's still alive but lost. He sounds not just scarred but damaged. So A Memory Is Better Than Nothing is an album about hurting so badly that it's no longer possible to express the pain clearly, which makes it tough to listen to but also tough to dismiss.

The Television Personalities' first album. And Don't The Kids Just Love It was released in 1981. It set the template for their subsequent career: neo-psychedelia married to an obsession with youth culture of the 1960s. Their second album Mummy Your Not Watching Me demonstrated increased psychedelic influences. Their third album, entitled They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles showed Treacy's sense of humour; the TVPs were never to have any major commercial success in the UK – although their albums sold respectably in Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands . A Memory Is Better Than Nothing (2010, Rocket Girl). Beautiful Despair (2018, Fire Records).
Send it to ti. onesopolis. Television Personalities - A Memory Is Better Than Nothing. TV tsar channels the zeitgeist. Chief Television Personality Dan Treacy occupies a unique realm in our collective consciousness. Only Michael Head of Shack is comparable in terms of messy personal travails measured against unconditional critical respect. A Memory Is Better Than Nothing finds Treacy and his current cohorts in whatever the frail and capricious equivalent of fighting form is, consolidating three decades of episodic backstory with 13 endearingly dissolute new songs.
