The Last Words of the Great Explorer
"Now with 9 bonus tracks. A John Peel favourite from the early eighties, TV Smith's Explorers never quite made the big time, but just listen to this album... they really had something! Forget the patchy production and mediocre musicianship, this is the thinking man's punk. Traversing the extremes of emotion from depression ('The Unwelcome Guest') to ecstacy ('I Am Your Servant'), this album is suffused with a timeless vigour. The title track is audaciously awesome. And who would have thought that, 20 years on, 'Tomahawk Cruise' would be even more relevant in this post-cold-war era? An ambitious, flawed, masterpiece."
