Dan Treacy has been claiming that Television Personalities are over and done with, and that he's quitting music. Maybe he'll be back and maybe he won't: His band's first kiss-off was They Could Have Been Bigger Than the Beatles, back in 1982, and they recorded one of the greatest goodbye-to-all-that albums ever, Closer to God, a decade after that. He sounds not just scarred but damaged. So A Memory Is Better Than Nothing is an album about hurting so badly that it's no longer possible to express the pain clearly, which makes it tough to listen to but also tough to dismiss.
