This is art-punk. These two classic Television albums come out of the New York mid-seventies punk rock scene. I can speak for my chummy contributorsin in saying that these have always been in our go-to albums collection, frequently seeing roatation. They're nothing new, but I found links to them and wanted to toss them out for whomever to lick up. Links in comments.
Although by no means a gloomy album, this Verlaine classic is definitely an album I consider a classic for the coming of winter. "See no evil"an unbelievable album starter, and "Venus" is an unbelievable follower to it. Tom Verlaine's guitar tone is just so signature. If I ever had to show some aliens what in the hell rock n roll is, I might just toss on this gem. "F-R-I-C-T-I-O-N"
If Marquee Moon is a godsend for the coming of winter, Adventure is meant for the coming of summer. Any album would have a challenge following Television's debut, but I think this one does a more than satisfactory job, and its not like they gave a crap anyway. It is more relaxed and does not riff like Marquee, but it is a classic in its own right.
