Product Description:

Television Personalities: Daniel Treacy, Mark Sheppard, Edward Ball.
Recorded at Mount Pleasant Four-Track Recording Studio, London, England. Originally released on Fire (7). Includes liner notes by Clive Solomon and Alan McGee.
The first full-length from Dan Treacy's post-punk/psychedelic project Television Personalities was its most amateurish but also its most consistently listenable. There are bits of the weirdness that would make their way over in heavier doses on 1981's MUMMY YOU'RE NOT WATCHING ME, but, for the most part, AND THE KIDS is a straightforward bit of lo-fi proto-twee. Songs like "This Angry Silence" are rooted in classic pop radio, but are also informed by a desire to take the edge off punk's very first wave. They may have been practically KIDS when they recorded it, but LOVE IT remains the Personalities' most accessibly enduring album.
