Limited reissue of this classic UK punk album! Alternative TV was a London based band started in 1977. Its singer, Mark Perry was already active in the early days of the punk movement with his fanzine 'Sniffin' Glue'. This album (that was produced by John Cale) is a document of its time, it is experimental and raging, it is pushing the boundaries of the definition of punk. This unfairly neglected classic is unique and challenging the musical rules of late '70s British punk/post-punk!

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