• Fronted by punk pioneer and Sniffin’ Glue editor Mark Perry, Alternative TV evolved as one of the most exciting independent acts of the original Punk explosion of 1977.

• Between 1977 and 1980, Mark Perry was behind a string of fascinating post-punk records on Deptford Fun City Records – credited to ATV, the Good Missionaries and Mark Perry solo.

• A new line-up of Alternative TV are back with a brand new album, Opposing Forces, issued in July 2015 to critical acclaim.

• Viva La Rock’n’Roll is a 4-CD box set collating Perry’s entire recorded output for the label, including many recordings available for the first time on CD.

• ATV’s classic debut album The Image Has Cracked and follow-up Vibing Up The Senile Man are joined by all their singles A’s and B’s, tracks from their shared album What You See… Is What You Are and other rarities, including BBC sessions for John Peel.

• Mark Perry himself has written the comprehensive sleeve-notes for this landmark release, alongside a wealth of rare visual material within the sizeable booklet.

• The original artwork for each album is reproduced within the wider ‘clamshell’ box set.

• Also included are the debut album by The Good Missionaries (Fire From Heaven) and Mark’s solo effort Snappy Turns.
