Just popped up on the owld iphone. Shivers down me spine..Class act Television like.
Sounded very different to anything else out at the time, and still sounds good now. See No Evil's a great song too.
Excellent song... great era for original music
Great album. Saw them live a few years ago. A very odd band.
Is Tom Verlaine still going like?
Adventure is far better.
IIRC Marquee Moon the album is only £3 on Amazon, no reason not to buy!
Yup. Patti Smith hosted Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall. Television came over and played one night.
Verlaine was very introverted, spoke very little, and hardly acknowledged the audience. Spent most of his time between songs tuning his guitar endlessly.
Sometimes it seemed like he was too old, and struggled to get the notes flowing, but when he did it was incredible. It was like he was playing for himself rather than playing for anyone else.
At the end Patti joined them for a couple of encores.
Glad that I saw them - they were the most intresting band from the punk/new wave era (tin hat on..).
cant beleive he got his cousins wife up the duff
!977!!!! Seems like yesterday...
Aye he's from Wheatley Hill man !
Absolute classic. I love putting this song on the jukebox aswell.
Had this on in the car all week as coincidence would have it. Absolutely great album, one of the all time greats IMO.
Richard Lloyd's first solo album Alchemy is also worth a spin for fans of MM.
I like the album but dont reckon its quite as great as its made out. Prove it is one of my favourite songs ever though.
canny sing song leek
Used to hoy it on at the Ivy all the time, great song.
