Television Personalities - Wonder What It Was

This 7" single from 2011 is Television Personalities most recent release. Predominantly active in the 1980s and 90s, the band explored punk pathetique, new-wave, neo-psychedelia and beyond, until frontman Dan Treacy was imprisoned in 1998. Wonder What It Was, released thirty years after the band's debut, has been ludicrously overlooked (whether that's because it was limited to only 600 copies or because it released by a small Taiwanese label is disputable). This song, though, showcases Treacy's stunning lyrical ability. The combination of just voice and acoustic guitar leaves it vulnerable and honest, with Treacy's vocals emphasising a beautiful melody.
