TV Smith, legendary frontman of original 1977 punk pioneers The Adverts visited Helsinki in January 2011 to record vocals with The Valkyrians. Together they made this early reggae version of Gary Gilmore´s Eyes.

This track is included in The Valkyrians´ new album PUNKROCKSTEADY. The new album´s songs are cover versions of the 70´s and 80´s punk and new wave bands and a tribute to the early influencers (outside of ska & reggae).

The Valkyrians´ lead vocalist, ANGSTER, commented as follows:
"This was one of the first punk songs I've ever heard. I'm very happy that TV Smith recorded this with us, I mean, it's a dream come true. He's a cool guy. Our version is horror reggae."

LETKU-LEROY, The Valkyrians´ bass player, commented like this: "I played this song with my first punk band Xtaasi in my hometown Oulu, and NEVER did I dream, that someday I will meet TV Smith or furthermore, record with the man. A classic!!!"

The Valkyrians´ keyboard player, Mr MOONHEAD, also commented: "I was afraid TV Smith wouldn't like our version because it's so different. But Tim came to Helsinki and in a couple of hours we were done. Later we went to see his show and had a few pints with him. Tim is great, really down to earth!"
