Night owl chat – Television: Marquee Moon

So, a hep cat like me should have been a die hard Television fan. After all, only The Velvet Underground has a bigger reputation at being a pioneer in punk / post-punk. But, though I knew of them by reputation, I had never listened to them.

Until two days ago.

Their album “Marquee Moon” lives up to all the hype. It has weird time signatures. It has sublime guitar riffs. It’s loaded with melody. It took  the energy of punk and infused it with soaring musicianship. And it is tonight’s Night Owl Chat.
