TV Smith was founder member, singer and songwriter for the Adverts, who formed in late 1976, and became one of the leading bands in the first wave of British punk rock. In early 1977, they performed regularly
at the newly-opened Roxy Club in London, and gained cult success with the Stiff Records single "One
Chord Wonders." Their next release, "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" became a hit record, leading to many radio
and TV appearances and extensive media interest. A further single, ?No Time To Be 21,? also entered the
charts, and the band spent the rest of the year playing live, including major tours with The Damned and Iggy
Pop. The album that followed in early 1978, "Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts," is still considered a
genuine classic of the era and is often cited as one of the twenty best punk albums ever released.
