Not my favorite

It’s a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod World

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

When I was 16, Calvin Johnson (K Records) asked me to drum for Beat Happening on their upcoming U.K.tour. I asked my parents if it was OK for me to drop out of high school and go on tour.

They Say All Music Guide

The second full-length Television Personalities release (and the first product of Daniel Treacy’s Whaam! label, later renamed Dreamworld after George Michael’s manager offered them a pot of money to change the name) adds a full-time bass player to the original trio and sets the Wayback Machine ahead about 18 months from the debut’s Swinging Carnaby Street sound. The darker, more psychedelic “Mummy Your (sic) Not Watching Me” is considerably less twee than “And Don’t the Kids Just Love It,” covering Treacy’s increasingly self-effacing lyrics in a wash of keyboards and phased guitars. There are a few songs that still show the influence of the earlier Television Personalities sound, including the wistful “Magnificent Dreams” and a remake of the single “Painting By Numbers,” originally released under the name the Gifted Children, but the key track is the lengthy “David Hockney’s Diaries,” an acid rock drone that introduces an entirely different texture into the band’s sound that Treacy would explore further on the next several albums. This is a transitional album that has tended to be shortchanged by both reviewers and fans, but there’s much to recommend here. This album was reissued in a different cover by Dreamworld in 1986, and released on CD by the Scottish indie Fire Records in 1991. – Stewart Mason
