Alternative TV - Bowes Lyon House, Stevenage England 6-14-81

In 1981 the originators of Alternative TV got back together to record a new album which was their first recordings since 1977. The album lacks the energy of 1977 but has some okay songs, Communicate being the best one. Interestingly, that song sound similar to a 1977 Subway Sect song. Here is a live show from there tour supporting that album. They still played a few of the old songs, too. It's an audience recording and the sound quality is good.
