Television’s Marquee Moon. It’s an absolute classic. And as far as guitar albums go this is one of the absolute best. Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd had some of the best guitar interplay I’ve ever heard. Spidery, fluid stream-of-conscious playing. A cross between beatnik jazz- era improv and jagged punk. Not a bad song to be found.

If you’re not familiar with Marquee Moon, you should be.

About the Author jhubner73

This is where I drop the spat and spittle, the sentimental fat and drivel... Music and such, and maybe a word or two about a word or two. Midwest point-of-view, without all that religion and gun stuff. Intellectually unintellectual. Elitist for the pizza and beer crowd. Grab a bean bag and lounge in the basment for a while, won't you?

  1. I once got into an argument with someone much younger than me regarding Television. He claimed that they were the greatest ban ever! I called him a pretentious poofter!
    However, this is a brilliant album, and I will never deny it.
