Diskografi

Med Where's Billy Grundy now? blev gruppen känd för en större publik tack vare låten Part time punks. Plattan gjorde narr av punken men blev paradoxalt nog en mindre klassiker inom genren! - - - Trots att gruppens texter ofta är humoristiska saknar de inte samhällskritiskt bett, bl.a. på den kritikerrosade singeln A sense of belonging från The painted word och EP:n How I learned to love the bomb. Television Personalities har tillsammans med bl.a. Swell Maps varit pionjärer inom do-it-yourself-rörelsen - en beteckning för artister som själva finansierar, spelar in, producerar och ofta också distribuerar sina plattor.
