Ahead of its time, And Don't The Kids Just Love It is Television Personalities' influential 1981 debut album featuring "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives." The legendary lo-fi release sees the band produce British inspired '60s pop and post-punk that captured the period and "sounds remarkably prescient" (Pitchfork's Best 100 albums of the 1980s). With the formidable Daniel Treacy at its core, Television Personalities remain one of new wave's longest serving and seminal artists with a career spanning over three decades. The indie pop visionaries influenced many acts across the industry including Battles, Black Dice, Crystal Stilts, MGMT and Creation Records' Alan McGee with the latter proclaiming that, "They provided the inspiration and motivation for me to start the label."
