Cassette reissue of Alternative TV‘s The Image Has Cracked, originally released in 1978. 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 towards 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 post-punk. Beloved by John Peel, and close confidantes of Throbbing Gristle, Alternative TV is one of the most original and beguiling groups of the era. Includes two bonus tracks. Three-panel j-card; Edition of 350 cassettes (hand-numbered).
