"Treacy is the outsider's outsider, committed to a raw honesty, constantly bearing witness to his own suffering, his own weakness and fallibility." The Quietus // A comprehensive remastered collection of all of the Television Personalities' ground-breaking single releases from the Peel-approved '14th Floor' through to the effervescent 'Salvador Dali's Garden Party' EP.

Includes the super rare Creation flexi, the TVPs as The Gifted Children, and the even rarer Caff 45 where the band tackle Stock, Aitken And Waterman.

Purists will also find two shelved 45s for the Dreamworld label plus their take on Syd Barrett's 'Apples And Oranges' from the 'Beyond The Wildwood' tribute album.

Features the seminal 'Where's Bill Grundy Now' and the self-effacing 'Part Time Punks' alongside a host of pop culture-bating gems.

A celebration of the songwriting of Dan Treacy.
