Classic Albums Television - Marquee Moon




 Features See No Evil, Venus, Marquee Moon
 "A meld of angular city rhythms, plaintive prose and wiry guitar lines that will become a signature for the thinking man's punk and probably the most important influence on post-modern pop. Astounding." Q
"Television eschewed the cliched sleazeball pose, and led the fightback by opting for a graceful new wave bite that betrayed delicate hints of neo-psychedelic sophisication." Mojo
 "Marquee Moon," is a small masterpiece, and the album a medium-sized one. Leader Tom Verlaine wrote all the songs, co-produced with Andy Johns, plays lead guitar in a harrowingly mesmerising stream-of-nightmare style and sings all his verses like an intelligent chicken being strangled." Rolling Stone, 5 stars
