A happy birthday to :
Fred Smith (1948) is an American bass guitarist, best known for his work
with Television. He was the original bassist with Blondie until he replaced
Richard Hell when Hell left Television in 1975 to form The Heartbreakers.
At the time, Television played at CBGB along with Blondie. According to
Smith, "Blondie was like a sinking ship and Television was my favorite
band." Smith also participated in the solo albums of the Television
guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd, and played with such artists as
The Roches, Willie Nile, and Peregrins. From 1988 to 1989 he played bass,
recorded, and toured with The Fleshtones.

@jackattack17 To be honest, i dont know. It may be, but don't hold me to
it. The bbc showed this performance on a programme called 'new york rock'
which featured live performances from bands like them, lou reed, blondie,
john cale, velvet underground, the strokes and others. When i saw it on
that, i knew it must be out there somewhere on the internet. I merely found
it and brought it to youtube.

Really? I'm tryin hard. Just can't do it. It's like it's too slow or
something, and too twangy. They never did achieve any real pop success. I
wonder why. Talking heads did.

@RichieEastside Compare it to the bands that were topping the charts around
the same time. Production was getting a lot slicker. Think about Boston,
Journey, Doobie Brothers, etc. This has more in common with some of the
psychedelic or garage bands of the late 60's than with its popular
contemporaries. But more importantly, listen to the lyrics. This is where
you'll find originality. They weren't quite writing love songs, were they.
