Formed in London in 1977 by Mark Perry and Alex Fergusson, then editors
of the punk fanzine Sniffin' Glue, Alternative TV was a post-punk group known
for incorporating reggae rhythms and pushing the boundaries of the definition of
punk toward the experimental and avant-garde. Their first album, The Image Has
Cracked, came out originally in 1978 and is a wholly unique piece of British postpunk.
Beloved by John Peel, and close confidantes of Throbbing Gristle,
Alternative TV is one of the most original and beguiling groups of the era. This
classic is reissued here on 180-gram vinyl with two bonus tracks and a doublesided
A2. Action Time Vision
A3. Why Don't You Do Me Right?
A4. Good Times
A5. Still Life
B1. Viva La Rock 'N' Roll
B2. Nasty Little Lonely
B4. Splitting in Two
