The Adverts release their debut single 'One Chord Wonders'/ 'Quick Step' on Stiff Records today.
"Much to the band's own discomfort, the intelligence of TV Smith's songwriting was eclipsed by the iconic allure of bassist Gaye Advert, British punk's only significant female pin-up. Smith composed 'One Chord Wonders' in just 20 minutes, giving it a stomping neo-glam appeal that's difficult to resist, while it's cheerful assault on muso values makes for the perfect punk statement, a celebration of the talent amnesty that allowed some gifted primitives the chance to entertain us despite their lack of craftsmanship."
