So, I was having a bit of a vinyl listening session at a friends house yesterday, and he pulled out a copy of Vibing Up The Senile Man and said "oh my god, you have to listen to this!". Now, of course I'd heard of ATV and knew that they were Mark Perry's (of 'Sniffin Glue' punk fanzine fame) band, but nothing had quite prepared me for how avant-garde this release was. 'The Radio Story' is certainly one track I found impressive, with its snatches of radio noise and hypnotic bassline.
I guess it threw me off a bit, partly because of knowing Perry was responsible for one of the well-known '70s punk fanzines, but also because I've heard their first album generally being talked about as up there with the great punk albums. I'd be quite interested in hearing what other people think about ATV and their thoughts on this album and the rest of their back catalogue...
