New TVPs single - The Good Anarchist

tvps japanese reissues contain no bonus or rare tracks..we dont play that game.they are simply reissued in new packaging for japan only where they cannot get the original or previous reissues..
the packaging is diff in so much as suprise its mostly in japanese!th e first reissue singles 77-87 is not strictly chrnological..
it does include bridget riley and my imaginary friend which featured on the very rare irish ep on fantastic plastic..
you me and lou reed.why that said track and the fourth track which escapes my mind are not on the cd ..well i dont know.

next reissue is the painted word at beginning of february..hope this helps.
cheers,
dan

December 31, 2007

Japanese reissue of DTKJLI

its simply a reissue just for the japenese market because its in demand and th eprevious reissue is not avaialble..
i would never complemplate bonus or rarities tracks..id rather burn in hot oil.
difference is the packaging is mostly in japanese as you,d expect.painted word follows in few weeks..
the singles collection 77-87includes bridget riley and my imaginary friends..apparently sought after by televisionados. .
hope that answers your trainspotting question.

as for nick kent..what a fucking loser..

7"

hi kids,
i really should have better things to do but as its the weeken and im at aloose end..

dont worry about play louder..legit or not dominos publicist fixed an interview with them.
which i did and it was very nice..guess you can read it soon..
no the single wont be coming out on cd..
if domino pull any stunts like that then i am out of here..there are promo cds that only feature smack..
no doubt these will turn up on e-bay.. i think the idea from dominos viewpoint is that you do download
if you dont have a vinyl player..guess it worked for artic monkeys..
the minute i think there may be some manipulation going on thats not to my liking then i am out of here. have a nice weekend,
the boss

screw the lot of you

lets get this straight OK!
THE REASON WE DID NOT DO THE EUROPEAN DATES WAS
BECAUSE I WAS AND STILL AM SICK..got a problem with that?
OK HERES A LIST,,I HAVE FOR SOME TIME BEEN SUFFERING BLACKOUTS..
THE DOCTORS SUSPECTED I HAD AN ANEURYSM ON MY BRAIN..
I THINK THAT IS LIKE A SMALL TUMOUR..FORTUNATELY IT TURNED OUT TO BE A BENIGN CYST..
NOW I AM NOT TOMMY COOPER..I HAVE NO WISH TO DIE ON FUCKING STAGE..
AS WELL AS THAT I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH LIVER AND KIDNEY DAMAGE..
THE LIVER PROBLEM IS MOSTLY SELF INFLICTED THROUGH DRINK..
I DONT DENY I HAVE SUBSTITUTED DRINK FOR DRUGS..
ITS NOT FUCKING EASY TO COME OF HEROIN AFTER 18 YEARS ON AND OFF..
I HAVE GIVEN UP DRINK FOR GOOD..EVEN I AM NOT THAT STUPID.
AS FOR THE KIDNEY PROBLEM THAT IS HEREDITARY..
PROBABLY IN A COUPLE OF YEARS I WILL NEED A TRANSPLANT.
(put your applications of help in soon)..apart from chronic depression its all going well.
YES WE ARE PLAYING THE 100 CLUB BUT IF PEOPLE LIKE LEE MCFADDEN
TURN UP FOR A FUCKING FREAK SHOW I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL HAVE YOU BARRED..
I DONT NEED THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW..
MYSELF AND FRIENDS HAVE MADE ONE OF THE GREAT RECORDS IN YEARS..
YOU WAIT AND SEE.FORGIVE ME IF MY HUMOUR IS LACKING A LITTLE.....FUNNY THAT..
EDWARD BALL ASKED ME TO PLAY AND HE WAS HAPPY..NEY..THRILLED..
ALAN MCGHEE WAS CRYING HE WAS SO EXCITED..
WHAT DO YOU SECOND AND THIRD GENERATION @FANS@ KNOW ABOUT OUR HISTORY
(THATS ME AND EDWARD)?CHRIST ITS LIKE PUNK NEVER HAPPENED..
THIS IS THE LAST TIME I GET WOUND UP..
NOW PISS OFF AND GET YOUR WARDROBE SORTED OUT FOR THE 100 CLUB....

the italian nosey guy

i know exactly what you are saying..
its only when you are cruel and sarcastic to your loved one(or ones)
that it becomes not nice..see me..
i have someone i love..she is far more intelligent than me i think..
i am lucky though because she..has, till now, always forgiven me..
most mornings i wake up angry with the world..not people in general
but those who abuse there power or privilege..
see..i can imagine me mat,victoria and who ever is in tvps being"pop stars" this year..
it will happen but i dont think tvps in the "charts"
will change anything for me..but i know one thing ,
i am basically a nice guy..just a guy and have lovely..
not many ..but lovely friends around me...
see all the people who our music or come to the gigs ..
i count them all as friends..who needs fans when you can have friends?
happily i am in nice positive mood today/

February 22

now what have i done

see i was lucky,
i did not have one of those proud fathers who buy their prodigy son all
the trimmings from the souvenir shop, a rattle and rosette,
and say, "now son ,this is your team!
..see my dad god bless him(and i am sure he did)
well we had the occasional kick about but he had me when he was
not in his prime but he loved his sport,sure,
Chelsea was on our doorstep.a.girl on our estate went out with one of the glamorous players..
Alan Hudson..but my dad took me to QPR and Fulham too..(technically i should be a Fulham fan.)
i was born in Fulham road...anyway, saw Chelsea,i must have been six or seven,
i remember the anticipation and expectancy,i was scared of the police Horses.
and,.scared of the right-back for Chelsea!..Ron "CHOPPER" Harris,
i thought i could not support a team with an axe murderer at right-back!
anyway.,saw Leeds,(dirty buggers,) Liverpool,(stupid hair and mustaphas )
..and the rest of them.. NO!, MAN.U CAME TO PLAY!
YOU CANT IMAGINE SEEING GEORGE BEST FOR THE FIRST TIME!
..(i still see him now drinking in Oakley Street Chelea),
not to mention DENIS I AM THE LAW!..
it was like Alan Mcghee seeing the TVPS for the first time (i imagine)..
my sisters bloke, Alan the Mod(still married) was MAN.U and a mod!
..fucked if Chelsea had mod fans!..
Bunch of JUMPED UP GRAMMAR SCHOOL TOWN TARTS
(ASK EDWARD IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME!)
I should have some allegiance but hey SO BLOODY WHAT I SAY....
I lived in Berlin for a few years ,in the gay Turkish quarter..
it does not mean to say that i am Turkish or a kebab shop owner does it?

And as for Me being a glory hunter?
there is more chance of me playing bass guitar for the recently re-formed Secret Affair!
name me one pretty Chelsea player? thats the most important thing!
ALAN SMITH, RONALDO.C?,.GIGGSY(UNSHAVEN)? I TELL YOU..IF I WAS A GIRL!...
AND ON A LIGHTER NOTE..
I HAVE JUST HAD MY FIRST DRINKYPOO OF THE DAY(MEDIUM DRY) HOPEFUL NOT MY LAST..
HER LADYSHIP HAS HER LOVELY GAY GREEK FRIEND YAGOS(HE WONT MIND,HE LIKES ME)
COMING AROUND FROM bERLIN VIA THE ELEPHANT AND CASTLE, AND HE HAS DUTY FREES!
..AND BY THE WAY..£59 FOR POP GOES ART!..
EDWARD PAID TO RECORD THAT MARVELLOUS ENSEMBLE PIECE
AND STILL HAD CHANGE OF A TENNER!
AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR....

February 22

KIDS TODAY!

what on earth is going on up there oh mighty(insert god or your particular choice of diety)
it cant possibly snow ..it has neVer snowed in north London before!..
i checked at the vet office)( the Sainsburys SUPERSTORE haved lifted their ban on me!
you may recall i was ejected for being slightly unruly with the ugly security woman bitch..
you may recall me telling you she follows me around looking at my arse!..
i would not mind if she was a looker! but their is no excuse..
she won a runners up rossette at this years dog show (i heard on the grapevine.)
NOT HAD A DRINK TODAY.!.SOON PUT THAT RIGHT NO DOUBT..
Christ now its raining! ..right to-do last night!..
i went out in the snowstorm to have my photos taken..
well anyway, a gang of brats,mixed sex,mixed race,
FUCKING MIXED UP LITTLE BASTARDS from the estate..
ANYWAY ONE OF THEM..PUTS A DUSTBIN THROUGH A PASSING TAXIWINDSCREEN!
WHAT POTENTIAL THAT YOUNG MAN HAS!...MISTER(AND I GET THIS ALL THE TIME)
WILL YOU GO IN THE SHOP AND BUY CIGARRETTES FOR US?
THE PAKI MAN WONT SERVE US!WE HAVE MONEY!
well, straight away i always tell them to wash their mouths out..
GODOT! they will be calling black people nig nogs again before long.
I always oblige them but they never offer me SO MUCH AS A DRAG.
Anyway after the taxi..incident..
i turned around in time to see this blob of a girl in Matalan trainers, trakkies
and EVERYTHING UNDER A POUND SHOP JEWELERY
just about to ping me one ON THE BACK OF MY HEAD! with a damn snowball!
i said (rising to my full height)YOU FUCKING TRY IT GIRL! JUST YOU FUCKING TRY IT!
....AND SHE DID!....I DID'NT ARGUE.ANYWAY.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE I TODAY WILL BE LISTENING ...JUST LISTENING....JUST LISTENING....

home improvements

Today i am mostly flicking (in a nonchalant manner) through gnomes and gardens and the
new ikea catalogue.Cant decide what to have in the guest room,
brought a lovely ornate bit of shagpile for the servants
quarters(fillipinos,from the agency),cant decide what to put on the floors (let alone the new album).
Builders are in measuring for the observatory,
one in particular amuses me, his english is not very good,(croatian by all accounts,)
a lot of them around here (Knightsbridge) actually.
Excellent feed back from my little soiree at Winners pile,he wants me for the soundtrack for
his forthcoming film,The Killing Of Sister Morrisey. Aparently louis phillipe turned it down
(well filming will clash with the new polo season). Had a right contratent with bespeckled lackey
at Sainsbury..watched my arse all around the pattiserie..i broached him in the end (painful)
"My good man,do you get or give full satisfaction for £4.70 an hour?..
NO! i dont think you do!now tell me where can i find the omo?..WHAT! NO OMO!
no bloody players number6! no garabaldis!..darned consumerism.
bring back the corner shop..politeness,friendly service.."Half an egg and a cupful of milk?
my pleasure sir! would you like it wrapped sir? dead mans leg today sir?
As i live and breathe,to add incest to injury they barred me from their enterprise!
Well,DO I LOOK LIKE A SHIRTLIFTER?

on a lighter note

Had a great time at the Brit Awards last night.
Pissed next to Justin from top rock act(and sadly no prize this time)The Darkness..
my aim was obviously not true because i inadvertently splashed his lovely boots.
Was offered coke on several occassions(i naturally declined) (best not to say who offered it to me).
Seemed to be a bit of a bug going around as Alan Mcghee,Mike Skinner
and the untalented ones out of The Libertines all were in
and out the toilets with streaming noses. I hope they get well soon.
Had a lovely night on the senior management table of Domino Records label.
Shared canapes and general chit chat with some of the lower order girls from the typing pool.
Edward entertained everyone with his bird whistling noises and Victoria showed a leg(or two).
Much back slapping(back stabbing more like) from e.m.(sic)and Rough Trade(sick)
who congratulated us on our deal with the pizza company.
Tvps hopefully will be back in studio soon.Very excited to be working with Joan Collins.
In meantime my autobiography , SHOEGAZERS ANONYMOUS,
IS BEING COURTED BY THE MAJOR PUBLISHERS!
It is in the safe hands of my literally literal agent Mike Alway.

February 7

and then..

i worked for swansong records..the led zepp dudes in 1977 after leaving school.
it was almost on my doorstep in the kings road,i lived at 355 they were at 484 i think..
next door of the site of the famous sixties boutique granny takes a trip.
it was a bizarre job cos there was little to do.
the label was not very active but it was pleasant to meet some of th artistes.
The only one i knew was maggie bell who was singing solo. she used to be in stone the crows..
i knew her from her doing her laundry at mums laundry.. which i think was number 402 kings rd.
she was very sweet and friendly.i really did not have a clue about zeppelin or bad company,
dave edmunds i was familiar with,of them all him and robert plant and paul rodgers were really nice.
peter grant their manager was a utter bastard! he pinned me up against the wall once
for being late back from the bank. He gave me a cheque to cash and i mistakenly
went to the wrong bank! the bank called him and he went apeshit!
some of swansong had regular parties in the top floor room.
it was the only room i was supposed not to enter.
one day however out of curiousity i did..shit! they had had a black magic orgy by the look of things..
its known that jimmy page was heavily into that stuff,
there were used condoms and occult stuff lying around.
i learned about zep as i worked there and found myself suprisingly liking some of the music.
funny thing was i worked there at time of my first single 14th floor..
plant and edmunds and maggie were a great help and encouraged me..
the only time i met jimmy page was one very very hot day in june..
i was told he was coming to the office and was warned by unity mcclean the office manger not to talk
or look at him! what the fuck i thought.who is this guy?.
i swear when he walked in the room was like an ice box! the temperature dropped suddenly..spooky..
the conversation went like this i think..
jp."so whos the new boy"(he said putting his hand out to shake mine)
dt.pleased to meet you..(didnt call him mr.page)
jp."what you up to?"
dt.just looking for swansong articles in the newspapers and magazines
he picked up a copy of 14th floor which was on the desk. i explained i was in a band
and had made the record. he then invited me up to his room in the office for a fucking jam!
he told me grab a guitar,he had about twenty,think i grabbed a gretsch..wish he had let me keep it!
he was perfectly charming and quite good on the guitar.
funniest story was captain sensible..
he was a regular at gigs in fulham, london..usually at dolly mixture gigs..he later married one.
anyway,doctor and the medics brought him to see tvps at fulham greyhound..
someone in the audience kept shouting for smashing time..
our bassist then..mark flunder, didnt know it so sensible jumped up and played
with me and mark sheppard the drummer! he was note perfect..
he took me and a girlfriend to his managers penthouse and offered us cocaine(which i naturally declined)
then gave me a lift..his girlfriend drove. anyway we stopped at traffic lights he jumped out went
to the boot..he had a barrel of beer in there on tap! poured one for him one for us and jumped back in..
he held up the traffic,of course all the other drivers recognised him as he was number one at the time..
took him up on his insistence to meet mum and dad..they loved him!
smashing time smashing guy you
dont want to hear about me and evan on our ecstasy voyages..
though did a great show with evan. after lemonheads tour he did a secret
solo show for fans in london borderline club, me and evan played 4 songs..
i think..syd barrett lives,silly girl,look back in anger and say hello wave goodbye!
someone must have pictures of that..
got wasted after show,young girls,hotel etc..he missed his flight to texas next day!
you can guess the rest.
played 2 shows with nico in germany..me and joe foster were in complete awe of her!
she had the blue orchids as her backing band..they were terrified too.
they had not even met her till she walked into the breakfast room after arriving late night before..
all they had was a tape and instructions..
anyway, our kid drummer mark who was under age i remember 17..
like harrison he could have been deported,(,have to be 18 apparently to rock in germany)
well be bounces over to greet her..
she never even said hello to her band!..she sat with her shades,furthest away in corner..
well next minutes she was in peals of laughter with mark..he was such an endearing little skinhead..
she literally adopted him for the trip.."zu arrr meiner baby boyyyy" she said in her smoky voice...
she got booed and bottled of stage in the old east berlin for singing deutschland belongs to me..
nice lady..sadly missed
another time at swansong i was phoned very early, about7.30am to come to the office and pick up a
package and deliver it..it was supposedly an important tape..
well they gave me £20 to get immediately in a cab and deliver to a certain someone..
well this someone only lived in fulham road,a few minutes walk,
naturally i pocketed the money and walked briskly,geting there i was met at the door to his basement
flat by a very dishevelled chap,all shaky and sweaty..
he pulled me into the kitchen told me to help myself to whisky(which i naturally declined)
whilst he ripped open the package,poured the contents onto the table and dived headlong
into the white powder..it looked like a minature version of the Alps made out of cocaine,
he obligingly offered me a line or two(err..which i naturally declined)
best not to say who the chap was but keyboard it was not page,plant or bonham..(slight clue there)
kurt cobain was sweetness on the couple of occasions we met..
we played with them in london astoria,not sure year,anyway.
he stood at side of stage watching..we finished with seasons in the sun..
did not see him immediately backstage but kris novoselic who we had met earlier and (dave grohl)
well kris said "shit,guys you know that seasons in the sun is kurts favourite ever song?
..oh dear..what have we done wrong i said? just then kurt introduced himself and said
"hey,what was the b-side o terry jacks version?"
"put the bone in ,i replied"
he smiled shook my hand
again for playing the show and asked us to play in america with them(which we never did).
To this day i cannot remember a top headline act letting the support use there equipment
(they had turned up late and we had been waiting for ages)
"man,you guys were loud "said dave grohl..really nice guys..
kurt and courtney and debbie harry came to see us in new york at wetlands in(92 i think) she was funny.
she jumped on stage at or near end of our set shouting"in with anger,out with love!".
saw simon le bon fall flat on his face at soundcheck once..treasure that moment,i really do!.
went to a boxing tournament with steve harley (of cockney rebel fame) and simon napier-bell
once at Royal Albert Hall,London..remember i was tripping and they were dipping in
to their poison of choice,nice chaps,bit mad.
most recently had drinks and canapes with film maker micheal winner,
dont ask how i ended up at his ansion in kensington,i was looking in a gallery window when he
led a crowd out of the galery.."all back to mine ",
he said welli got swept along n the crush! said hello to him,(lied about my background naturally)
saw some nice stills of susan george in straw dogs.
decent chap,(.though bit of a gossip
I DO GET AROUND DON'T I!

2 questions

15. You grew up on/near The Kings Road.
As a little kid, did you ever see any groovy psychedelic types?
What did they look like? Were mods still around?

shit are you kidding? you have no idea how magical the kings rd was to me..
i was born in 32 danvers street on chelsea embankment..
my parents were working class,my dad worked building roads my mother in a laundrette..
not just any laundrette. when iwas 7-11 years of age i supplemented my pocket money
by delivering peoples laundry and cleaning to their homes..that included
rod stewART,MICHEAL CAINE.
EVEN BOB MARLEY WHO LIVED IN A FLAT ABOVE MY MOTHERS WORK..
SHE DID NOT OWN THE SHOP..
PEOPLE DONT REALISE THAT CHELSEA IS PREDOMINANTLY WORKING CLASS..
CHRIST ME AND ED BALL USED TO FOLLOW BOWIE AND FERRY AROUND..
THATS IN THE DAYS THEY WERE ON FOOT..
THE BEST WAS WHEN MCCLAREN AND WESTWOOD OPENED THERE SHOP..
TOO FAST TO LIVE TOO YOUNG TO DIE..THEY WERE THE SWEETEST PEOPE..
VIV WESTWOOD STILL SENDS A CARD TO MY MUM EVERY XMAS..
MY MUM LOVED SID VICIOUS..CHRISTOPHER ACTUALLY..HE WAS SO SWEETY..
LIKE KURT AND MATTHEW FLETCHER FROM HEAVENLY
I DESPAIRED THAT THEY TOOK THERE LIVES..
MAYBE THEY WERE SCARED THAT SOMEONE ELSE WOULD..I OFTEN THINK OF DEATH

16. You recently asked to borrow some ketchup from Paul Weller.
Was he pleasant about it or did he act like Cat Weasel?

no,he is either a miserable cunt or he is shy..i give him the benefit of the doubt..
saw the jam..about 81-82 in paris, brought a ticket for a lovely girl
called sandy hoping i might pull.no chance..gig was scary..
weller pissed..french hated him..i hated the bloke who got off with sandy..
she told him i was her brother.after gig weller collapsed drunk.there were 12 coaches fronmn England.
wellers dad john,the jams manager gave weller a slap in the faCE AND TOLD HIM..
"get on the coaches and thank the fans for coming!,WELL,HE VOMITED,,
THat got a round of applause and then bruce foxton and the drummer..sorry.
rick buckler got on and shook everyones hands..just as it should be

townshend

as i was saying about TOWNSHEND when i was 17 i worked for an african charity,
in london,not africa i hasten to add,anyway townshend and his wife sponsored dozens
of children in africa
and both he and his wife would do absolutely anything to help.
Part of my job was to send letters to so called celebrities asking if they could sponsor and raise
the profile of the charity. i wont name names here but many a "celeb" took it as an opportunity.
to raise their conceited ego In this country we call it the CLIFF RICHARD(sir) syndrome.
townshend saw through it and refused politely to take part.In my opinion his crime is naievty,
but what do i know? and now jonathan king is up for release..well..i wrote to him while i was in prison
actually. he did music reviews for a prison newspaper called inside time
no doubt with his appeal the scum media will get the vigilantes
hot under the collar,spot a paedophile and win a prize!..funny old word. (SPLAT)

December 26th

2-4-6-8

Ah Tom robinson was really charming. Could not stand him years ago.I am getting sentimental
in my old age. He did all the hits and we all sang along.all dirty, scuzzy refugees
and great unwashed dispossed and smelly homeless people like one happy melting pot
.Now Tom is married with two charming children i must be the only gay in the crisis village.
He did a fantastic version of a day in the life on piano with reverb. the psychedelic bit was fantastic..
he did nice version of walk on the wild side and i have always hated that song.
Awful things in the real world..sri lanka and japan disasters..
life..the great leveller and on that thought i wish you goodnight and sweet dreams...
xx daniel

December 26th

its getting worse!

oh my lord..
its 9pm at the millenium dome and just when i thought it could not get dafter
bloody TOM ROBINSON is on stage.."do the gay one!"
"2-4-6-8" actually he is a really decent chappie..
plays every year does a lot of good work for charridee....oh heavens they love him..
he is doing war baby..as long as the fucking libertines dont turn which would not suprise me..
it should be ok..right i am off.."go on robbo ..do the poof song!"
..nitey nitey x daniel..

December 26th

nearly got flattened by collapsing 20ft blue gorilla at homeless shelter!..christ can it get much worse!
wrote article for CRISIS magazine today..published tomorrow..
e-bay on wednesday..not much happening..went to acupuncture.freaked out when i saw the needles..
c,est la vie as they say in Peckham..no great insights apart from that..
have not heard much music lately but like the secret machines,jens lekman
and the new interpol single very much..
toodle ooo x geoffrey ingram..x

December 26th

I Should Explain

i am in the millenium dome..they have turned it into a homeless shelter for xmas until dec 30
it is quite bizarre.ok i am not homeless on the street anymore.
sister and girlfriends have been looking after me but felt like i wanted some space at xmas..
theres up to 1000 people here at a time but the place is massive..
its like a science fiction film acted out by the great dispossed and unwashed...
theres everything a person in need could want here though that doesnt make it right that places
like this need to exist...its a test for me being here having been dispossed myself..
a lot of people i thought i would not see and many i would not want to see again..
too many junkies,abusers and users in here..too many drugs and not enough for some..
i can say no to it quite easily now..see myself in these these people..not pretty or clever....
written 2 new songs while here..there are guitars and pianos..been helping with music lessons..
place is manned almost entirely by volunteers..some extraordinarily kind people to give up their time..
as for tv personalities?..new year will finish mixing the 16 songs..record a few more..
singles as planned for elefant in spain and good village in california..
very excited that we may sign to my favourite record label but i can only let you guess about that one..
except franz ferdinand will maybe have a bit of competition....
will finish some new filming to complete the dvd/video release..
for people who have sent money thanks for your patience it will be few weeks but worth waiting for...
gigs next in scotland..dates to be confirmed..
may we should be going to europe..france,germany,holland and austria..
maybe switzerland..definitely sweden june 24 in malmo perfect from now on festival and stockholm..
offers for usa..not sure if want to play usa..slight misgivings..apart from that we shall see what happens..
i am going to buy a new winter coat next week and fancy shoes,shirt and hat..
in love and apart from that..well how are you?..
be good children..daniel xp

June 18th

Flashback "Save The Robots Club" NY 1992!
The lowdown on that night before my late appearance at "Kim's Underground".
Firstly they thought me and my accomplice Richie from Edinburgh were from California
and would not let us in! Then after trying the
"Hey I'm in a band from London and just played the Knitting Factory", it looked bad.
TV Personalities? Never heard of you dudes, what are you soft rock?".
We smiled and took no offense
Next minute the peephole opens and the 6 locks on the door are opened
and a guy with more tattoos then I've even seen says:"Hey guys, so where does Syd Barrett Live?".
The guy who I now realized was about 6 foot 6 inches (that's about 2-2 meters in American money),
puts a couple of pills in our hands- "No charge guys".
Thank you very much"
said Daniel "And have a nice day".
Well this was 4 AM in the morning, the next 5 hours are a blur!
The words coke, ketamine, transvestite and soft drinks come to mind
and I think the Real Huggy Bear was in the club! Jeez I'm so jonesing for a drink right now.
Oh well, I'm out shortly.

June 8th

Being Dan Treacy

I brought some new toys
For my room at the top
A playfriend for my rocking horse
That my parents forgot
Some balloons and some string
A truck train that sings
These are a few of my sentimental things

Happy hours
Full of elation
When the train
Went past my station

I remember some fool at a concert saying
Dan he's a clown
Making stupid jokes about nervous breakdowns
I told him
"Do I look like I'm laughing?
You stupid fucking shit!
I'm scared and bewildered
And I can't stand it"

On stage in Frankfurt
Voices in my head
Dan your not worthy
And all your friends have left
Your dreams are dead
Coloured all red
Crawling in the dirt
Don't go there it hurts

But I started to remember
How nice it feels to feel
On board the good ship Lollipop
It's a nice trip!
And surreal

I am not a number
Tee! Hee! Hee!
I really am the Prisoner..
It could only happen to me!

Sitting in the park
It went dark
Frowning
Drowning

The boy still loves the girl
But someone else
Gave her diamonds and pearls

Then one day,
Hooray!
Picked up a guitar to play
Three games for may

The sun went in
The rain came down
I got wetter
But I got better!

Yeah I took the red pills
Then I took the blue pills
Then I took the green pills
Then I was ill!

But now...
I have decided to become a Popstar!
It's what I wanted all along
Move over Marshall Mathers
I write the songs!

So I will go on tour with Coldplay
And write them some new tracks
And paint the world in dayglo
As soon as I get back

And all you boys and girls
(And aliens too...)
Keep on doing the nice things you do
The letters you sent me
The pictures you drew
Yeah it's true I went crazy
It all seems so hazy
They thought I was dead
Pushing up daisies

But Ding! Dong!
I'm back where I belong
Up here on stage
Give me the keys
Let me out of this cage

But shit!
Don't worry
There's nothing wrong with Dan
I used to be Bob Dylan
Now I think I'm Eminem

Jowe, Jeff and Lenny
They just don't understand
It's me they come to see
Because it's my band!
It's my band! It's my band!

So don't be fooled by the rocks
I'm still Danny from the block
Once I had a little
Now I have a lot
And I still remember where I come from!

I hope you like my new songs
Songs about lovers
Songs about hats
Songs about heartache...
And naturally cats!

So goodbye from me
I'm floating out to the sea
Can you... imagine what it's like
Being Dan Treacy?

Love from Captain Dan

May 31st

I'm hanging in!! Did I tell you about the Mad Fucker trashing my cell!! He smashed the TV, the officers
replaced it and he smashed that TV too!
In any other prison he would have gotten solitary confinement!!
He came and picked a fight with me later and busted one of my ribs!!! I didn't retaliate. Not worth it. .
Turn the other cheek Jesus said.
YEAH?? Well I'm Not Jesus!
If I catch him in the real world I'LL KNOCK HIS FUCKING BLOCK OFF!!
And I'll put his address on the Fucking Website!! REVENGE Ha Ha!!
Life? Is all, whatever..

So who's gonna play the TVPs when Tarantino makes the film?
Need a title?:

"DRUGS 'R' US - THE TVPs STORY"

I want GARY OLDMAN to play me! DAN TREACY
CHRISTOPHER WALKEN as JOWE HEAD
JOHNNY DEPP as THE DEALER
MIKE MYERS as LITTLE WOODY ALLEN
EVAN DANDO as THE SPACEMAN
HUGH GRANT as GEOFFREY INGRAM (Dan's private doctor)
ANTHONY HOPKINS as THE ELDERLY SYD BARRETT

I suppose Lee Ronaldo will do the soundtrack - God Help Us!!
and COURTNY LOVE as COURTNY LOVE!!
Soundtrack on SUB POP and WINDLESS AIR

"It's 1976 and a shy young mod is trapped in a punks body,
in search of his own personal grail.. his grandfather's Parka!
But this parka has magic powers!! Dan has 3 Wishes but he faces many enemies
Will he get to the Adventure Playground where he will find many clues...
But! Some of the clues are not what they seem!
Dan knows he first has to find David Hockneys Diaries..
But will they give him the next clue?
Can he get Evan Dando's mobile phone number before Evan returns to space?
Will Dan find the Glittering Prizes before the evile ghost of Bill Grundy?
Stay tuned!

May 27th

Prison Drama
Rock N Roll!! That's more like it!! Some punk busted one of my ribs!! Muthafucka!!
He thew a TV at me and punched me out. I thought it was going too well.Very depressed for 2 days
OK now. Big deal. The guy was scared. He's released today, poor guy is deaf and a little impaired,
believe me I wanted so much to "get it sorted geezer" and give him a good thrashing!
Never mind.. Life is all.
I heard from my big sister for the first time in 14 years and next day from my former partner -
first time for years too. Very emotional about it.
Happy sad happy sad happy, puts things in perspective.
The tribute LP is crazy,
I'm honoured, flattered and look forward to the foreign bands getting my lyrics wrong! I don't mind!
Is it time for a commercial? This is w.w.w. Anorakcity.N.Y.Com

OK - sorry Marshall - Am I becoming the new Weird Al Jankovic - You know who I mean?
Sue me Eminem! Please! Please! Like George Michael did!

"8 Mile" (edited version) by Dan Shady
I know I'm white trash. I come from the slums, born in a trailer to a traler trash mum
I've been an alcoholic, and junkie and a bum. I'm scum and I'm your son. I've come undone
I've been high on smack, low on crack, all the dope and cheap thrill and now I'm back
I'm not here to preach, not here to teach, I will not quote the commandments,
there's no bible in my hand I'm just the guy who wrote Part Time Punks. I didn't write the koran
But on my gravestone I want this epistle:
"he was a rock n roll guy who lived a rock n roll life -
died in a hotel like John Entwistle with a hooker sucking his cock smoking a rock
dead popstar shock?
My name is Dan Treacy from the TVPs - now tell me something I don't already know about me!

My birthday - June 19th. I want cake and a bomb!

May 24th

I'm Blown away by this TVPs Tribute
Why not make it a concept LP and be done with it!!
UK/USA/Iraq? Hmm..Heavy shit to think about.

I'm not here to teach you
I'm not here to preach to you
I've got no respect for organised religions Causing divisions
No Bible in my hand
I'm a simple guy
I'm the guy who wrote Part Time Punks
I didn't write the Koran
Rock N Roll can have my soul
I did not write the 10 commandments

But on my gravestone I want this epistle
If I die in my hotel tonight
I wanna Rock N Roll death
Like John Entwistle
With a hooker sucking my cock
While I'm smoking a rock

My name is Dan Treacy
I'm in the TVPs
Now tell me something I don't already know about me!

TVPs at Woodstock!!
Are you having a joke?
We used to sound like the kinks
Now people will think we were The Strokes!

Graeme! Coach! Please don't put my omnichord on E-Bay!
I'll buy it back off you - Graeme where RU, please come back and haunt me!

Listen, for anyone who writes to me by say Mon June 21st I should get your letters,
I'm outta here on June 28th! Birthday on Sat, June 19th when I'll be younger then that now.

We Want Jowe! We Want Jowe!
Dan, Jowe and Lenny was my fav TVPs. Hi Lenny! Come on you guys, we've got to play Woodstock!!

Don't worry about sending me books and shit. Cheers though, they open all the mail here
Hey I forgot - some crazy fuck from New Zealand sent me some fucking acid!
To the fucking prison! Ha Ha! A micro-dot on the back of the stamp
I got it! I'm saving it for the journey
This fucking boat is a trip!

So many fucking lyrics to write, think I'll have to stay in tonight

May 9th

My Eminem Tribute -( To The Tune Of Stan) by Dan Shady

And it reminds me, that it's not so bad, it's not so bad at all
Dear Dan this is Bart, I'm your biggest fan
I've got all your Cd's and records, and your posters on my wall
I've even got a bootleg of you and Nirvana at The Albert Hall
But when you came to New York, you dissed me Dan
I was with my little brother Jimmy
He's only two! He loves you more then I do!
But you kept us waiting in the rain and all he wanted was a lousy autograph
Oh well, I guess your busy, you being a guru
I'll write you again Dan, This is Bart, your biggest fan!
Muthafucker Dan cocksucker!
I sent you a stamp addressed envelope with the zip code
You still haven't wrote, are you back on the dope - Dan you can't cope!
Now I hate the TVPs! - I'm gonna write to Morrissey!!
I hope you don't sleep at night, if you do, I hope the bedbugs bite!
I'm on the freeway now doing 100 miles an hour on a thousand downers
Aaarrrghh..Did you hear that scream?
That was Bobby Gillepsie - he's in the boot of my car.
Dude it should have been you!
We could have been together!
And all I wanted was a lousy autograph!
