Formed in London in 1977 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 avantgarde. 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.
