BEAU­TI­FUL DE­SPAIR FIRE, OUT 26 JAN­UARY English ec­centrics’ lost al­bum found.

This “lost” mid-pe­riod al­bum by cult in­die act Tele­vi­sion Per­son­al­i­ties was home-recorded through 1989/90 and fea­tures songs that found their way onto 1992’ s bleakly fan­tas­tic Closer To God. It’s an es­sen­tial ad­di­tion to song­writer Dan Treacy’s back cat­a­logue. Raw takes on his men­tal state (My Very First Ner­vous Break­down) rub along­side whim­si­cal char­ac­ter stud­ies (If You Fly Too High hi­lar­i­ously skew­ers Evan Dando) to cre­ate an in­ti­mate, frag­ile doc­u­ment. JAMES OLD­HAM
