Television – Marquee Moon

“forget everything you’ve heard about Television, forget punk, forget New York, forget CBGB’s … hell, forget rock and roll—this is the real item.”
Roy Trakin, SoHo weekly, 1977

Not my words but something close to what i would say about this band. This shit is in its own stratosphere. Television were a band from 1973- 78 and are unfairly overlooked every time the beginnings of punk and new wave are looked at, they fucking built the stage at CBGB’s! Not only were they reliable carpenters but they also shat out stuff like this.

If you have ever enjoyed punk, new wave, psychedelia or Interpol (they pretty much made a career out of Marquee Moon) then you need this album in your life.
