Per request, new rips and scans; these two singles were originally posted separately in 9/16/08 and 6/17/09.
For your listening pleasure, here's my favorite TV21 records, with "On The Run" being my favorite of the two. The B side, "End Of A Dream" is still to this day one of my favorite songs. I added a bonus song, "Ambition" from the free single that came with "Snakes and Ladders" to the "Playing With Fire Single" download. Ambition was also part of a three song Ep released on Powbeat Records in 1980.
TV21 were a four piece from Edinburgh Scotland, that formed in 1979. The bands name comes from a weekly British children's comic from the latter part of the 60's. They recorded a number of singles and an LP before parting ways in 1982. In 2005 they reformed and released a second LP titled Forever 22; if interested you can pick it up Here. A couple of years back, Cherry Red released an almost complete discography you can pick up Here. TV21 has a Myspace for you to check out as well, Enjoy!
