Television - Marquee Moon (Limited Ultra Clear Vinyl) (Rocktober Campaign)One of the greatest guitar bands of all time. Widely considered one of rock's great debuts, Marquee Moon was Television's paean to garage rock done in revolutionary style.
Television were part of the late-'70s punk nucleus that put New York's CBGB club on the map. Driven by Tom Verlaine's raw-nerve songwriting and both his and Richard Lloyd's guitar playing — dual strands of slashing hooks and cathartic riffs — their music is spare yet structurally complex, artistic yet unpretentious. Among rock's true innovators, Television put a new face on punk and influenced everything from New Wave to jam-rock.
