Blast From The Past : Marquee Moon – Television

Television were a fixture of Gotham’s 1970s downtown punk scene, and mainstay of iconic East Village club CBGB’s, alongside groups like The Velvet Underground.

Their debut album, Marquee Moon, was recorded in 1976 following frontman Richard Hell’s unceremonious departure from the band.

Though it achieved moderate critical and commercial success when it was released 42 years ago to this day in 1977, Marquee Moon has since become regarded as one of the greatest rock albums of all time.
