Formed in London in 1977 by Mark Perry and Alex Fergusson, then editors of the punk fanzine 'Sniffin' Glue', Alternative TV was a post-punk group known for incorporating reggae rhythms and pushing the boundaries of the definition of punk towards the experimental and avant-garde. Their first album, 'The Image Has Cracked', came out originally in 1978 and is a wholly unique piece of British post-punk. Beloved by John Peel, and close confidantes of Throbbing Gristle, Alternative TV is one of the most original and beguiling groups of the era. This classic is reissued in a hand numbered limited edition of 350 cassettes with 2 bonus tracks for CASSETTE STORE DAY 2017.

Also available: THE IMAGE HAS CRACKED (LP), THE IMAGE HAS CRACKED: COLLECTION (CD).
