Initially created with the goal to make Mod Revival 1979 music cross over punk rock, in few months Television Personalities evolued its sound closer to PiL, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Joy Division, aka blackened, dark and almost sad post-punk. Clearly post-punk but they continued to dress as mods, have scooters as mods and listen to that genre of the 60's named "British Invasion", aka The Beatles, The Who, Small Faces, The Kinks or The Animals, to mention a few. Firstly it seem completly impossible to get  this sound, but Television personalities get to mix elegant mod music with post-punk in a excellent way.
